How To Add Text To A Category Page


Recommended Posts

Hey, I'd like to add text to a category page.


For example, lets say I sell shoes. I might have the categories sneakers, sandals, and dress shoes. You click on "sneakers" and the page has the sub-categories of nike and reebok. This is the page I want to add text to. I have about fifteen categories but there are only two or three categories that I'd like to add text to.


I've looked through the forums, I've Googled and I've looked through contributions and I haven't found how to do this.


Thanks very much for the help!!!!!

If you don't have a meta tags contribution installed, then use Header Tags SEO. Otherwise, us the Categories Description contribution.

...use the Categories Description contribution...


Thanks for the answer!!!!!


I previously found a few Categories Description contributions, some only allow 255 characters (not nearly enough) and others are over four years old. Could you point me to the specific one you're referring to?


Thanks again!

I`ve used http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,2343 which is fine whatever osC version.


The installed limit is varchar(50) but there is no reason you could'nt change that to 'text' if you need a bigger field.
