Check if an event is in a particular parent category

I would like to output different HTML for a single event post depending on its parent event category.

For example, output ABC if an event is in Concerts/Rock or Concerts/Classical, but output XYZ if the event is in Lectures/Philosophy or Lectures/Politics. (The parent categories here being Concerts and Lectures.)

How could I do this? I’m comfortable with adding functions and editing PHP. Thanks!

Hi there,

An example of some code that can check for an event category follows:

You can add the code to a function that’s hooked to an action (like in the example) or directly into a template. How and where you add the code will depend on where you want to add the custom html.
