[resolved] Show category description (8 posts)

    Hi everybody,

    Is there some plugin or easy way to show the category's description when someone visits a post from that category and/or select a category from the vertical menu widget?

    Since there is the 'description' field for categories, it shouldn't be hard to be done. It's a almost logic thing to be wished, though I've learn 'logic things to wish' use to be not so logic to do, in WP... and any kind of code programming...

    Good!
    Is there a shortcode for that?

    Does the theme you are using support category descriptions? Some themes do not.

    Well, if I have a shortcode, then I can put it on a widget... I've installed a plugin to make shortcodes work on widgets.

    There's no shortcode. Just a template tag. But you could use that in a widget if you installed the PHP Code Widget:
