Version: 3.6.3 Provides the ability to add a fully functional tinymce editor to the category and tag editor to style up the introductory information

What exactly does this plugin do to my WordPress installation

  1. The plugin removes the default category description field.
  2. It then adds in a new field that is fully tinymce enabled. I did try and just add an editor to the default field but I could not get it to function correctly. The new field saves to the same database section as the default field so no new database tables or fields are added.
  3. The plugin runs a filter on the category edit admin pages to remove the default description field as this broke up the admin table and made it unweildly.

The plugin does not work

The plugin in was tested on a clean install of wordpress 3.3 and a child theme of 2010. If the plugin does not work then raise a topic for this plugin and tell me: what version of wordpress you are using, what theme are you using, do you have problems with any other tinymce call in your theme.

What does the future hold for CategoryTinymce

There's a bit of tweaking needs doing but the main feature next is to only display the category description on the first page of the archives so it is not repeated when you go to the next page in the archive. In the mean time you can use the following code to deal with the issue.

In category.php of your theme folder add:

if (is_category() && $paged < 2) {
        echo '
just before the get template part.

In tag.php of your theme folder add:

if (is_tag() && $paged < 2) {
        echo '

just before the get template part.
