Support » Fixing WordPress » How to show parent category names?

  • Resolved WPChina


    I’m trying to print out the parent category with links of a sub category so it looks like this:

    Parent 1 >> Sub 1

    In the Codex I found this:

    <?php echo(get_category_parents($cat, TRUE, ' &raquo; ')); ?>

    However it is not printing anything–just blank.

    What code should I use to mark this up in PHP?

    Sorry for the bump, but I know this is a simple thing to do and I’m just stumped right now… the info in the Codex isn’t working for me on WP2.2 🙁

    Where my child category is 4, this works for me:
    <?php echo(get_category_parents('4', TRUE, ' &raquo; ')); ?>



    Thank you MichaelH. Ok I see what I did wrong–I left off the number of the cat id and instead used the name. 🙂

    Cheers for your help!
