Selected Post need to Display

Hi,

I am using CANVAS theme. I have set the Template of the Landing page to “Magazine”.

And i have created few Categories which should display in various pages. If i create a General Category it do display on Home page(Which is Magazine Template),

My Query is, I do not want to display all the category on the home page. I used http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simply-exclude/ Plugin and used this code.

But none worked.

Can any one help me how to resolve this issue.
