Hide a Category on Categories display page not working

Hello Again,

One additional question - when we try to hide a category on the category listing page, the category remains visible. We've followed all of the documentation instructions. When we reduce the number of categories to show at a time as an interim solution, it simply creates a "next page" link which shows the hidden category on a second page.

Assistance in getting the hidden categories hidden from the listing would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
