the_category - problem forcing no styling (3 posts)

    Hello!

    I'm trying to include the_category tag in the loop on my Index page to make something like:

    "Posted on August 18, 2007 at 2:25 pm in Music"

    tacked on the top of my post.

    However, the output is putting a list around the category. I thought the default was "usage lists categories with no separator other than a space.".

    My code:

    <p>Posted on <?php the_time('F j, Y'); ?> at <?php the_time('g:i a'); ?> in <?php the_category(); ?></p>

    Source output:

    <p>Posted on August 18, 2007 at 2:25 pm in <ul class="post-categories">

  2. Music
  3. </p>

    What gives? I simply want the tag to output the category with no lists or any formatting so it doesn't look out of place!

    Looks like that got broken somewhere in the code, or changed or something.

    Anyway, the_category(' '); should do what you want. That's a space between quote marks for the first parameter.

    Brilliant mate, thanks for the swift reply!

    I'm still learning...I have learned so far it's always something bloody simple... :)
