Thanks. I looked into that but still have a problem:
I tried the part that said:
A slightly more complex possibility is that you want different text to display depending on which category page the visitor is viewing. Then you would add the "default" text to the main category.php file, and create special category-#.php files (with their own version of the text, as described in the Introduction) for each category that needs special text at the top.
This does however create a lot of files in your theme directory, and can be avoided using the following code OUTSIDE the loop:
I tried that last part but my theme is a modified version of the basic one and does not have a category.php file, instead my categories layout is done at the top of the archives.php file. I tried to insert the code given pointing for a particular category to display a certain type of text and the rest to display the standard text but when I check my site and click on a category I get an error message at the top of the page and nothing else.
Is it not possible to put this code into the archives file and do I need to create a specific category.php file?
Hopefully I've explained this well enough.
