Category Header/Introduction Text


  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    I have a feature request for a optional category header [markdown] text displayed here:

    Many of your categories requires some introduction and or additional information. Sticky threads just isn't good enough [people don't read them].

    Like in the bug report category here on the forum, it would be nice to add a link to github issue tracker and give a short explanation on how to add a bug report.

    This is a cool idea, the category description can be used there as well. We could have some kind of category header that shows this info.

    They should probably be two different things. Category description should be a short text like today, while the introduction could potentially be longer (and preferable support markup).

    Got an even better idea... We could actually use the "Widget" feature. Would only require a new widget property where you can specify which category it should be shown on... that way you could place texts both in header/footer/sidebar for a specific category. Flexible!



  • @hek I like that idea, At the moment I am just putting an if statement in the header, and depending which page is show, it shows different images/text.



  • @hek, I'm really likeing the implementation outlined in your second post.
