Support » Themes and Templates » Excluding categories in the_category

  • In my index.php template, I of course want to show the categories associated respectively with each post. So I use the default code:

    <?php the_category() ?>

    I would like to have ‘the_category’ only hook into 5 categories (under which all the posts are) and ignore the rest of the categories (which I use for other aspects of the blog). In other words, I’d like to include only a few specific categories.

    ‘wp_list_categories’ has the ability to do this, but that lists ALL categories, not just the ones associated with a post. Example:

    wp_list_categories('orderby=name&include=3,5,9,16'); ?>

    Is what I’m looking for possible?

    Thank you!
