Displaying category title in product details page

Anyone know if it is possible or know how to display on the product detail page the products category title? i tried {$category_data.category} / {$category.category} but does not work - so thought i would ask if anyone knows a solution before i have to build a custom function into an addon


As the product data is being processed on the product’s detail page

so, we can have access the product category as

$product.category_ids for product category then use php function get_category_name to get the name of the category.

For further help. PM me


What do you do when the product is in more than one category?

And if they’re already at the product detail, what do they care what category they are in or got there from? Categories are only really useful for navigation…
