I have a rather simple problem I can't solve. I have custom styling for my cards and one of the elements of the cards is the category, when I access the_category() from the Loop it comes with its own weird styling (looks like a list item anchor). I would like to get the url of the category and the name of the category within my while loop, my code is shown below:
<div class="container body-margin"> <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?> <div class="card"> <div class="row"> <?php $url = wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id(get_the_ID()), 'thumbnail' ); ?> <img src="<?php echo $url ?>" class="img-responsive card-image" /> </div> <div class="row card-body"> <div><a class="card-body-category" href="#the-category-url"><?php the_category(); ?></a></div> <div><h4 class="card-body-title"><b><?php the_title(); ?></b></h4></div> <div><p class="card-body-date"><?php the_date(); ?></p></div> </div> </div> <?php endwhile; ?> </div>
Most of the solutions I saw had people accessing their tags outside the while loop with the get_the_category() function, this does not suit what I want to do, would be really grateful for any help.
