    Hi :)

    Anyone know how I would be able to have the category descriptions show up at the top of the post area when viewing a specific category >>>

    Thanks much!!



    Try this:

    Or add a description in the intro text which you’ll find in categories under posts



    Very cute blog Kendra.

    What plugin are you using for the author box?

    Really like that one.


    Thanks so much! I will try that in just a min.

    The author box plugin is called Fanciest Author Box and you can find it here



    Worked perfectly thanks so much! How would I reference the “category description” in my css to style it?







    Try this for starters:

    .archive-title {
        background: url("images/sidebar-headline.png") repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
        border: 5px solid #C9BC93;
        color: #65635B;
        font-size: 18px;
        letter-spacing: 2px;
        margin: 0 -25px 10px 0;
        padding: 10px 10px 10px 15px;
        text-shadow: 1px 1px #F5F3ED;
        text-transform: uppercase;

    This will only style your category archive headlines.

    Is there anything else i can help you with Kendra?



    I wanted to check with you if its o.k to use an image of your author box in a blog post i published today?


    Yes of course!



    Hi Brad & Kendra,

    Do you have a way to stylize the actual category description? I have added the code to my functions file, but would love to change the description using CSS. In the code it’s just putting <p> tags around the description without a class, so I assume I need to add a class somehow to the function, or add a separate function?

    Thanks for sharing!

    I have the same problem bhoodWWA I need stylize the actual category descriptions.



    There’s a couple of classes you can use to style the archive description and title:

    div class="archive-description taxonomy-description"
    h1 class="archive-title">Web Design</h1
