I want to display an entry's category, but only from a specific category group.

{exp:channel:entries channel="paintings" limit="10"}
{categories group_id="42"}{category_name}{/categories}

If I just use: {categories}{category_name}{/categories} I get all categories but I only want categories display if they are in group 42. If they have nothing in group 42 I want nothing to display

{categories show_group="42"}{category_name}{/categories}

  • Based on the docs, that SHOULD output only the categories within the group with ID 42 that the current entry is assigned to, as you described. Commented Jun 1, 2013 at 18:14
