    Trying to figure out the best way to do this.

    Need to have on the top of each category some static text that will contain a picture. Basically something explaining the category and giving a description.

    If it didn't contain a picture I could easily add it in category description then call that in the template. But since I need a pic I can't.

    Next option I thought of was to use a sticky. But that sticky would need to show full post and the rest of the posts I would want excerpt only. This should be possible by showing full post on category template but adding th more tag to each post that isnt a sticky. That "should" work but havent tried yet.

    But there should be an easier way to have static text on the top of the category template where I can show text/pictures without hard coding it in the template.

    Any ideas or plugins that you have seen that can do this?

    I'm not sure if it is applicable to your specific needs, but the category description doesn't have to be plaintext, you can add HTML to include an image here if you'd like to.
