I wan't to add a description of a category first, before all posts are starting. Is this possible? I have updated all categories but this description don't appear in the site.

It should look like this:

--------------------
MENU-CATEGORY
--------------------------
Description (2-3 Lines)
--------------------------
Post 1
-------------
Post 2
-------------
Post 3
-------------
a.s.o.

You could use a plugin like List Category Posts which lets you add a shortcode to a page to display the posts and you can put any text you want on that page along with the shortcode.

Hi, thanks. I think thats not exactly that I try to find.
I would like to add the text of the category description itself like or as kind of a header in categories.

This plugin sounds nice, but i need an own page for this and this is noch very helpful for seo.

There is a thread in the Gold Forums Tutorials (avaliable to members who have donated $20 or more) called 'HOWTO: Multi Column/Custom Query page template'. You create a page and assign the template to it. You have the option of printing the
Page title
Page Text
entering a custom query like 'category_name=flowers'
having the resultant posts in 1 or more columns and
having 1 or more posts above the columns.

The page2cat plugin is old and has been abandoned and the original template I wrote was to address a similar issue

Hi Imilesw. Thanks for you post. I try the plugin now but this is not that I'm searching for.

See my enclosed pic. Maybe with this you know exactly what I'm searching.
The part with grey background should be the automatic inserted description of the category - one reason for this is seo too.

I think I understand what you are trying to do and the plugin I sent you a link to should work.

For each category you would
  • Create a page
  • Add the description at the top styled anyway you like
  • Add the shortcode for the List Category Posts plugin with attributes to point to that category and display it as you wish.
