Wordpress: Get first category name only

 / Published in: PHP

This is useful if a post is in a child category and you only want to list the immediate category. Unlike get_categories which will show the parent categories as well.

  1. <?php
  2. $category = get_the_category();
  3. echo $category[0]->cat_name;
  4. ?>
