Finding out the category (5 posts)

    On the front page, I want to show only the excerpts for the posts, except int the "personal" category. So far i have the following code :
    if ($_GET['cat'] || $_GET['p']) { the_content(); } else {
    the_excerpt(); } ?>

    So that works out if its the front page fine. What I want to do is have it find out if the post its outputting is in Catid 1. How would I do that?

    He says he uses a function in_category(), but it doesnt seem to work in my version (1.2) where could I get the code for this function from?
    <?php if (in_category(33) && !$single) { ?>
    If I had the function this would be just the ticket.

    You have it otherwise you would get a fatal error when calling it. There is more than just the function, you also have to add "stuff" ;-) Take a good look at the directions and search here as there is plenty on how to set it up.

    I worked it out :)
    if (!in_category(1) && !$single) {
    the_excerpt(); ?>
    " rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: <?php the_title(); ?>">Read More.... <?php
    } else {

    Theres the code I ended up with. Checks if its in category 1, and also whether its in a single page (so when they click Read More it shows the full text).
