    Hey there.

    So I have a bit of a complicated question, I want to achieve a color coded organized category posts.

    Basically this is what I want to achieve
    http://www.earmilk.com

    I want all my posts to be organized in two main places.

    There are the main "type" of posts

    WEEKLY
    -Mix Monday
    -The Good Stuff
    -New Release
    -EVENTS
    -Event reviews
    -Upcoming Events
    -Boston
    -DMV
    -Miami
    -New York
    -Vermont
    FEATURES
    -Interviews
    -Contests
    -Album Reviews
    -Contribute

    Then each post is also categorized by a music genre. All music genres are categorized by tempo. So it looks something like this:

    *70-100
    **dubstep
    **drumstep
    **glitch hop

    *110-130
    **moombahton
    **midtempo
    **house
    ***dutch
    ***electro
    ***progressive
    ***nu-jumpup
    ***nudisco

    *140-180
    **dubstep
    ***grime
    **drum and bass
    ***jungle

    I want each of my posts to have whatever MAIN type of post it is and what tempo it is.

    Right now I have a code marked up to display one of the categories. I am not too sure which category is in which order, so I guess I would need help with that.

    <?php
    $category = get_the_category();
    if($category[0]){
    echo '<a>slug.'" href="'.get_category_link($category[0]->term_id ).'">'.$category[0]->cat_name.'</a>';
    }
    ?>

    Keep in mind that each main category is a different color so two different colors should show up.

    Hope I could get some help!
