How to display category description with no subcategories


Recommended Posts

Dear all,


I have scoured this forum and cant find the answer to this small issue. I'm sure I had read it before, but cant find it now.


I wish to display a categories description at the top of the page even when I don't have any sub-categories. I am using Header Tags SEO, and this works fine and I have the description for the top level category being displayed providing there are sub categories. But the sub categories and categories with no sub categories do not display the description, it just displays the list of products. I know the answer is in the root/index.php file somewhere, please help.


Please could someone put me out of my misery and tell me what I need to edit to allow the category description to get displayed.


Many thanks,


All the best,

Sorry everyone :rolleyes:


It appears that this problem is a deliberate alteration, made by myself about a year ago. When I first built this shop (it being my 1st and only) I think I may have altered the code to purposely do just as it's doing. For the past week, for some reason, I've had it in my head that the shop was acting as a fresh install would. I'll go back to an original files and look up my alterations.
