Single categoryname (tag) and parse a category into a google search string...
Hi,

I have 2 questions:
1)

I have want to have a category tag without the whole path.

<%title%>
<%title_linked%>
<%category_name%>

these tags gives the whole path:
ex:
d/dogs or c/cats. But I want only dogs or cats.

2)
How can I parse the categoryname in a searchstring for google on the category page?. This is more tricky and I hope that someone can help me.

Ex:

I have a category with artists with lyrics alphabetically.

a|b|c|d| > on the home page

when we go into the A subpage than we have:
ABBA
ALANIS MORISSETTE etc.. and when we go in abba we get the lyrics. still simple ;-)

But beneath ABBA etc.. I want something like: find more ABBA with Google or find more ALANIS MORISSETTE with Google like:

ABBA
find more abba with google
ALANIS MORISSETTE
find more alanis morissette with Google

I want to parse the categoryname in the Google search string => www.google.com/search?q=<%MY_MISSING_CATEGORY_TAG%> and this must be the output.
www.google.com/search?q=abba

So the difficult part for me is: how can I put this info beneath the category and what <%TAG%> must be used?

Thanks,
Ron...
