Getting the category_ID in archive.php

  • Hi!

    I want to put a list of my subcategories under the category_description. I know, I have to use this line

    wp_list_cats(‘&child_of=’.$cat_id.’&children=1′);

    But I dont know how to get the actual cat_ID.
    I use WP202 and if I am in a category with subcats, I try to get the ID with get_the_category… but this returns a ID of a subcategory, which is placed IN the category I am.
    So, how can I get the ID of the actual cat?

    Any solutions for this problem?
