    Hi,

    For a few years I used the plugin “Category icons” to show an icon in my “latest news widget” (according to which the news-category the news-item was linked)

    Example the KBC-logo in front of the KBC-news… (http://kbc.verzekeringen-portaal.net)

    Now I want to skip this category icons plugin, because he isn’t supported anymore since a long time.

    When using the Category icons plugin, I used this code in the “Class-Framework-widgets.php”-file:
    if (function_exists(‘get_cat_icon_lite’)) echo get_cat_icon_lite();

    Now I found a solution of an alternative way to show the icon, depending on the category a news-item was linked.
    (link: https://perishablepress.com/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -for-7-unnecessary-plugins/)

    A) Create a folder in your theme-folder called: icons
    B) Put the png-files in that folder with the same name as the category-name.
    C) Use the following code:

    img src=”<?php bloginfo(‘template_directory’); ?>/icons/<?php $cat = get_the_category(); $cat = $cat[0]; echo $cat->cat_name; ?>.png” alt=”Category Icon” />

    I don’t know anything about programming, but how do I replace het “Category icons code” with this code?

    This is not doing it:

    echo “img src=”<?php bloginfo(‘template_directory’); ?>/icons/<?php $cat = get_the_category(); $cat = $cat[0]; echo $cat->cat_name; ?>.png” alt=”Category Icon” />”

    Can someone tell me how to do this? Get the image and show it in the echo (instead of the Category icons code)?

    Or any other solution is also ok! :-)

    Thanks in advance,
    Vanwero
