I have a custom post type Holiday associated with a taxonomy Country. On my single-holiday.php, I use the taxonomy to display in the title. For example Holiday in Spain (Spain being the tax)

Rarely, but it can happen, a holiday can be in 2 taxonomy terms. Creating a problem for my title display as I use get_the_terms.

Somebody has better solution for me.

My code is as follow

$taxonomy = 'country';

            if($terms) {

               foreach( $terms as $termcountry ) {

            <h1>Holiday in <?php echo $termcountry->name;?></h1>}}

you can change you code a bit :

$taxonomy = 'country';
if($terms) {
    echo '<h1>Holiday ';
    $total_count = count($terms);
    $country_count = 1;
    foreach( $terms as $termcountry ) {
        if ($country_count = 1){
            echo 'in '.$termcountry->name;
            if ($total_count = 2){
                echo ' And '.$termcountry->name;
                echo ', '.$termcountry->name;
        $country_count = $country_count + 1 ;
    echo '</h1>';

This will output in case of one term:

<h1>Holiday in Spain</h1>

in case of two terms:

<h1>Holiday in Spain And Japan</h1>

and in case of more then two terms:

<h1>Holiday in Spain, Japan, England</h1>

hope this helps
