    Is there a way to call a single child name of a category?
    This is what I mean. I have posts that have multiple categories based on hierarchy.

    -> Department
    ->-> Humor Me
    ->-> Letters to the Editor
    ->-> LifeStyle
    -> Issue #35

    None of the posts multiple categories of the last set. Just one. For example, The post titled “The Story of My Life” is in the categories: Magazine, Department, Issue #35 and Humor Me.

    Each post must have an Issue category and one from the last level category ie. “Humor Me”

    In my template I want to display something like this-> Humor Me: The Story of My Life

    I can get them to all display “Department: The Story of My Life” or all of the associated categories but not just the last on the list.



    This is what I ended up using. It seems to be working.

    $catpost = get_the_category();
    foreach ($catpost as $cat) {
    $namecat= $cat->cat_name;
    echo $namecat;

    I know its late, But you can use
    <?php the_category(“”, “single”); ?>; // inside loop
    <?php the_category(“”, “single”, $post->ID); ?> // outside loop

    You can see the reference here . We are using it in our site.
