Robbert mailed me today asking with which template tags I used to make the description show up on my category pages. Well, first of all, you can add a description to your categories under Manage -> Categories:
If you press the edit button there you can edit them like this:
The description is what we’ll use on the category pages. Note that you can use HTML in those descriptions should you want to do that.
The rest of this is almost as simple as the previous steps where. You go in to your templates and you edit
archive.php with code that looks something like this:
<h1 class="cattitle"><?php echo single_cat_title(); ?> Archives</h1> <p class="catdescription"><?php echo category_description(); ?> </p>
You can now style the
catdescription classes to your wishes!
