Modifying PHP code in ‘Header’ <TITLE>

  • <title><?php bloginfo(‘name’); if ( is_home() ) { ?>» <?php bloginfo(‘description’); } if ( is_single() ) { ?> » Blog Archive <?php } wp_title(); ?></title>

    Above is the line code for the <title> tag on my blog. Under my Category page, only the Name field is displayed on <title> tag. how can I add the Description content in Categories field on <title> as well.

    What i meant by Description is that if you go Manage -> Categories -> you’ll find content under the Description column… I’d like to display Description content on <title> tag, but don’t know how to do that.

    I appreciate any advice.

  • I’ll avoid my natural habit of providing the cool but elaborate solution, and just point out an easy way to do this:

    <?php if( is_category() ) { echo ' &raquo; ' . category_description(); } ?>

    works great… thanks Kafkaesqui! that was very helpful. 😉

    Question 2: i’m looking to organize my Categories sitting on the sidebar. I’ve set up my categories so that it has about 5 parent categories and a lot of sub (‘child’) categories underneath the parent categories. I’m interested in organizing the categories so that the child categories would be directly underneath the parents. I would like to display all parent categories regardless of whether it has “posts” linking to them and also display in the parent and sub categories in a ‘tree’ format… using the bullet points for the sub categories.

    Currently, the categories are displayed in alphabetical order with no organizational structure. I’m hoping to fix this.

    glassshoes, see the doc on the template tag you’re using in your sidebar to display categories:

    Take a look at the info on the following parameters: hide_empty, hierarchical and sort_column.

    By the way, always a good idea to start a new forum thread when moving onto a new issue.
