    can you describe what your problem is?

    Sorry alchymyth

    function single_cat_title have 2 parameter.
    It is prefix and display parameter.

    the prefix parameter is not work.

    Can my explanation be understood?

    this is either done on purpose, but undocumented, in the core files (/wp-includes/general-template.php), or an error.

    the resp code snippet is here:

    750      if ( $display )
     751          echo $prefix . $term_name;
     752      else
     753          return $term_name;
     754  }

    so – with the display parameter ‘false’ to return a string, the prefix is ommitted.

    however, when you know this, you can simply program what you want, as you are working with strings anyway.

    I understand Thank you.
