    Hi,

    below my blog post (on single.php) I would like to display the description of it's category. I tried different things and uses google, but everybody provide this code:

    <?php echo category_description(); ?>

    But this code works just in the archive.

    I also tried this plugin:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tuis-category-intro-for-post/

    But I like to automatically displays the description below my posts...

    Does anyone has an idea?

    Greetings, Raisis

  2. edit single.php and add some code like the following (adding html tags for formatting is left to you):

    <?php $cats = get_the_category($post->ID);
    foreach($cats as $cat) {
    echo  $cat->category_description;
     }
    ?>
