Category title and description (2 posts)

    Hi, I have just started using the Hatch theme (or a child of). I am getting to grips with categories to display images in a grid layout, which is working nicely. However I want to add the Category title and the description to the page.

    I have figured out that it's the archive.php file that this page uses, and have added the following code:

    <?php single_cat_title( '', true ); ?>
    <?php echo category_description( $category_id ); ?>

    Bingo, the title and the descriptive text are now showing! If this code is incorrect - please advise!
    The title however is not showing in H3 text that is light grey - as per all the other titles on my other pages. I have tried adding an <H3> tag and it then appears as the correct size, but not in the grey.

    Do I need to include some css somewhere, or include an include file?

    I have a fairly rusty understanding of coding, but usually can muddle through, but I'm lost with this one - please help!!

    My site is currently running locally on my Mac, so I guess I can't share the link. I want the title to look like it does here:


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Can anyone help with this please? I've spent hours trying to figure it out, but with no luck!

    Thank you!
