OK, this is going to be a challenge to describe but i'll try...
In my archive.php I have a list of posts, I want each post to be able to display the description of the child category in which it sits... no problems, I can do that with
<?php $category = get_the_category(); echo $category->category_description; ?>. However, I only want that description displayed if the post is being listed under a category only when that parent category is more than 1 above it...
Make sense? Let me try to explain it another way:
abc archive.php = don't show cat description of post 123
XYZ archive.php = SHOW cat description of post 123
Thanks heaps on this one!
