Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Hello,

I plan on adding the code needed to display the category description to the top of my archive pages, but I am trying to find out a way(code) that will display the description on ONLY the first archive page... not all of them.

I have a code that I use on other wordpress blogs that do not use this theme, but it seems that it doesn't work for this theme. Can someone please help me with this? Thanks for your time and consideration.

Instead of editing a theme file with the code, which would get overwritten in a theme upgrade I would instead use the List Category Posts plugin or Juggledad's Multi-Column page template.

Hello,

Thanks for that suggestion. For some reason I cannot click the link you attached, and can you give me a direct link to the "list category posts plugin"? Thanks again.

Sorry about that. The page template is in the Gold forum which is only accessible to those who have donated $20 or more. To find the other plugin just do a search at wordpress.org.

lmilesw: I am not sure how the plugin for "List Category Posts" would make a category description display just once on the first category/archive page... but not page 2-10+. Please let me know how you are suggesting I use that to accomplish what I am trying to do. Thanks.

edit index.php test for a category page and put your code in.

Done. $50 just donated. Thank you for all your help. As mentioned I am using version 3.5.3, is it a big deal if I don't update in your opinion?

You miss anything new that has bee added, including patches but if it is running...
You can have multiple versions installed in the theme folder and swap back and forth. see this thread: HOWTO: upgrade Atahualpa to a new version
