Support » Plugins » Help with a php echo and category number

  • Hey everyone
    (hope this is in the right forum!)

    Am trying to echo category numbers from the functions file.

    Where $myString="6" in the functions file (6 being the cat number.)

    It works in the following code on index.php

    <a href="<?php echo get_category_link($myString);?>"><?php echo $myString; ?> </a>

    But I cant get it to work in a loop query. I thought this would work…..

    <?php query_posts('cat='<?php the_category($myString); ?>' &showposts=10'); ?>

    But it doesnt. Would anyone have any ideas? Im really stuck as my PHP is pretty bad!! Thanks!
