Default How Can I One Category Parent Link to Product Listing?

I would like to add a "see more like this" link on just below the go to store button on this page. and I would like it to link only to the category it belongs (not all the parent categories)

I would like this for each of the products listed on this page.

Is there a way to do this?

So it would read, see more like this and then it would link to the category where the product is placed.

Any thoughts?

This code provides a URL to the category page of a specific product:

[server.url query='c=$product->cat_id&view=category']

To use that in an anchor tag you would do this:

<a href="[server.url query='c=$product->cat_id&amp;view=category']">View more products like this.</a>

And to use the category name in there you could do this:

<a href="[server.url query='c=$product->cat_id&amp;view=category']">
<?php echo datafeedr()->category_name($product->cat_id); ?>

That code must be used within a product loop (ie. between: [product.each] and [product.end]).

That works, but I was working under the V1 model where the last category the product was placed was the category it belonged.

I see that the products end up in the category the user travels. Nice job! So thank you but sadly will not work for what I am wanting to do.
