Category ID within the loop (4 posts)

    Can anyone tell me how I can determine the Category ID of the current post within the loop? or - if multiple categories, the ID of the final 'child' category?

    (Sorry - this is a re-posted question as I think it got lost before. Also many thanks to Kafkaesqui for help with a previous category question.)

    Thanks for any advice... I am impressed with the level of help so many members give.

    Nobody have any ideas or knowledge on this for 1.5.1 ? (Last time I try - honest!)

    did you try: get_the_category()

    gets an array of category objects, which you can loop over:
    $catlist = get_the_category();
    foreach ($catlist as $cat) echo $cat->cat_ID;

    I don't know which is the 'terminal' category, if they are sorted at all...

    David - thanks and sorry for time delay - got side-tracked!

    The old the_category_id was perfect for what I needed but is now deprecated. I will do some testing on your suggestion and perhaps work it out from there.

    Thanks again
