Wish there were some friendly template tags don’t ya? Yeah you aren’t in WordPress-land anymore.
Need to show the category name anywhere?
Here you go:
$categoryobject = Mage::registry(‘current_category’);
I can’t take the credit for this one though, I actually found the object reference over here. He got me the object, I just added the line to grab out the name from the object. Many thanks to Richard for the post.
