The template function "get_the_category" is still broken and has been for a while -- let me explain, please refer to my blog category here:
Adding ?example to the end of the URL will give a print_r of get_the_category() for now.
Note: My posts per page is set to 6.
Rants! has 27 posts in it, and 2 sub-categories Comedy with 1 post and Experiences with 2 posts. This means the parent category (Rants!) has 30 posts and the side bar menu widget "Categories" correctly shows that number.
However, get_the_category says it only has a count of 27
More over, if you go to page 3 (http://info.rsow.com/category/rants/page/3/?example) suddenly get_the_category is ALL wrong.. It delivers the information for the "Experiences" category, not the "Rants!" category.
I'm NOT referencing it in the loop but its acting like I am.
On page three of the category "Rants!" the first entry is one that is from "Experiences" so its likely an error around that.
Do you agree or disagree this is a bug?
Note; Previously "get_the_categories" had the same (and worse) bugs -- its still not fixed.
