How To Add A Category Description To Your Category Pages!

category description category categories

Best Answer James B , 22 August 2013 - 10:23 PM

Hi there,

 

To color the background of that section, you'll need to target the p element of the #section.php. This will give you the following effect - http://screencast.com/t/r8FnnIbmk6zA

 

The only other option I can think of to include the title would be using a hook to insert the text prior to the category posts.

Thanks for the response, albeit a bit doomed. I ended up using a Universal Sidebar in the category template with a category description widget, but am wondering if there is a solution that is more native to Pagelines Framework, for those of us still out there who have not yet taken the plunge into DMS.

Hi, you can get all the free plugins which used to come with the Framework via the store from here -

Thanks for the link. Question: are they any installation instructions and documentation?

These docs don't contain information about the current status of the Store, which is no longer functional. I just wanted help with the installation of the sections that I just had to download *separately* from the Store.

 

Thanks.

To install them, you will want to exact the zip files and then use an FTP client. Then upload the folder of a section to the following directory:

 

wp-content/themes/child-theme/sections

 

For example: Lets say you download the ContentBox section and want to install it on your site. Following the steps above, your sections folder in your child theme should look like this:

 

child-theme/sections/content-box

 

That should work, as far as I remember.
