how to get the category of the parent? (3 posts)

    I am using the following php on my site:
    <?php if (is_category('My Category')) { echo '<a href="http://linkhere.com">'; } ?>
    This is to add a link if something is in a particular category.

    I want to be able to use this on the image.php template, which doesn't have a category.

    Is there a way to re-phrase it to look at the category of the post that the image is attached to? i'd assume this is the category of the parent.

  2. maybe using this
    in coordination with this
    might work.

    $post_id = get_post($post->ID);
    $parent_post_id = $post_id->post_parent;
    if (in_category( 'My Category', $parent_post_id )) { echo '<a href="http://linkhere.com">link<?a>'; }
