    Need to display only primary category

    Hi, I have "VIP ads" that have multiple categories (1,3,6) and I'd like to show on the homepage only the primary category and whenever someone picks some category (like 1 or 3 or 6) to show them that ads that we have an all categories with current name of cat. I mean the Ad have all categories, on homepage show only the Primary cat, on other categories show their cats (on cat 1 show "1", on cat 3 show "3" etc...).

    I found in the wordpress forum the code
    PHP Code:
    function the_category$separator ''$parents ''$post_id false ) {
        echo 
    get_the_category_list$separator$parents$post_id );

    witch says that if Ill add
    PHP Code:
    $parents 'single' 
    that should be fine, but when I change it, nothing happens.

    I'v tested allso and that one on file wp-content/themes/classipress/includes/actions.php line 163
    PHP Code:
    <?php the_category(', '); ?>
    with this code:
    PHP Code:
    <?php $parentscategory ="";
    foreach((
    get_the_category()) as $category) {
    if (
    $category->category_parent == 0) {
    $parentscategory .= ' <a href="' get_category_link($category->cat_ID) . '" title="' $category->name '">' $category->name '</a>, ';
    }
    }
    echo 
    substr($parentscategory,0,-2); ?>
    with no results.
    Please Help.
