Hi Experts,

We are using a custom fields plugin to display additional data for particular category  . Rite now we have category called
Promotional
and we cant able to retrieve the data for Promotional Category . Here is my code in Single.php from wordpress to target Promotional Category.

$category = get_the_category( $post );
$category_name=$category[0]->cat_name;

if($category_name=='Promotional')
{
            
            
?>
<div class="about-us">
    <div class="container">
        <div class="col-md-12 about-inner">
        <?php the_post(); ?>
            <h1>Promotional - Testubg</h1>
            <div class="color"></div>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>
</div>

<div class="personal">
    <div class="container">
        <div class="col-md-12 per-inn">
            <div class="col-md-4 maid-img">
               
            </div>
             <div class="col-md-8 maid-info">
                <h2>
                    <?php echo get_field('_promotion_period_from'); ?>
                </h2>
                 <h2>
                    <?php echo get_field('_promotion_periodt_to '); ?>
                </h2>
                
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
 </div>

Maybe this will help.

If your post has multiple categories it may not be category[0]. You would have to loop through the array and compare each element.

display a list of categories associated with a post

$cats = array();
foreach (get_the_category($post_id) as $c) {
$cat = get_category($c);
array_push($cats, $cat->name);
}

if (sizeOf($cats) > 0) {
$post_categories = implode(', ', $cats);
} else {
$post_categories = 'Not Assigned';
}

echo $post_categories;
