get_category_link returns nothing

  • I am using the following:

    <a href="<?php get_category_link(1); ?>">
    					<img src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/img/nav_Editorial.gif" border="0" alt="" />
    				</a>

    and so on.

    But the HTML which is generated returns this:
    <a href=""> ...

    Why does the function return nothing? The category IDs are correct.

  • instead of using that, why don’t you try this:

    /wordpress/category/yourcategoryname/

    make sure the file path is correct.
    This works for me.

    sorry i should be more specific:

    <a href="/wordpress/category/yourcategoryname/">
    					<img src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/img/nav_Editorial.gif" border="0" alt="" />
    				</a>

    put an echo in front of it,

    <a href="<?php echo get_category_link(1); ?>">
    					<img src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/img/nav_Editorial.gif" border="0" alt="" />
    				</a>

    hope it helps you.

    It helps!
