Support » Fixing WordPress » Conditional for term_description()

  • I have this template file (taxonomy-xyz.php), as it shows each tag/term I’d also like to show the term decription BUT only if the tag/term has a description.

    Thanks

    Try it with this:

    <?php
    $description  = term_description();
    if ( ! empty( $description ) ){
      // there is a term description
      echo $description;
    }
    ?>

    Thanks for that, works great… can I ask how I’d prefix this with some html (that also only shows if the term description is present.

    Cheers,
    Pete

    Because term_description() wraps the description in a paragraph I changed the code a little so you can use your own html. in this example I wrapped the description in a h1:

    <?php
    $description  =  get_queried_object()->description;
    if ( ! empty( $description ) ) : ?>
    <!-- html here -->
    <h1>
    <?php echo $description; ?>
    </h1>
    <?php endif; ?>

    That’s great.. thanks so much. A useful little piece of code that!
