Retrieve category title with pdoResources?

Is there a specific name for the category title in SC so i can retrieve it using pdoResources?

As far as I know a category is just a custom resource so you should be able to retrieve it with the general [[*pagetitle]] variable. If that’s not working you probably have to use getResources.

To get the title of the parent category from a child product page/template, you could use pdoField or getResourceField with the [[*parent]]:

[[pdoField? &id=`[[*parent]]` &field=`pagetitle`]]
[[getResourceField? &id=`[[*parent]]` &field=`pagetitle`]]
