[resolved] Display sub categories of one parent (2 posts)

    I've spent some time searching and I know it's easy to list the sub categories of a parent using wp_list_categories. What I'm trying to do is list only the sub category of a parent that is applied to a certain post. Say for example I have the following categories (children listed beneath the parent) set up:

    Busline
    -21
    -16
    -50

    Type
    -Funny
    -Scary
    -Smelly

    A post is tagged with 21 and Scary. When displaying the post (on the home page and the single view) I want to show the location subcategory in one place and the type subcategory in another.

    So the post would read something like this:

    Route 21: Post Title
    Content
    Filed under scary

    The site I'm working with is http://www.bustales.com and up until this point I've only used categories to assign the bus routes. I want to add in the type of story but I'm having trouble separating out the categories.

    Thanks in advance.

    I ended up using the Simple Tagging plugin (http://sw-guide.de/wordpress/wordpress-plugins/simple-tagging-plugin/) so that I've kept the categories strictly for the bus routes.
