I'd like to reference my category descriptions on my category pages so they show up on the category page. I've looked at http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/category_description but I'm not familiar at all with php. I tried adding this code in the archive.php file but nothing happened <?php echo category_description( $category_id ); ?>
Ideally I could get the category description to show up in a widget on a sidebar.
Any help appreciated.
