5 I got the categories added to my posts by adding this to my Post template:

Category: [post.category]

My problem is that I wanted to link that text to the category folder and I tried this:

But it didn't work.

Category: <a href="[category.path]">[post.category]</a>

Any ideas?

6 Um.  I just realised, I cheated when I did that for the standard templates.  I need to fix it.

Basically, the post isn't picking up all the category data automatically; my cheat was to use the category name in the link - which works for me, but isn't correct in the general case.

I'll get this fixed for you.

7 Scratch that.  Reverse it!  I actually did it properly, but it's sort of hidden.

Use [post.category.path].  The system is wrapping the category data into the post data.  It does the same for the author - there's a [post.author] object inside the post data containing the user details of the author.

I need do document that better.
