    I have a custom taxonomy for my main navigation. I’d like to display the description of the custom taxonomy, as it is now with categories and tags. How do I display the description for my custom taxonomy?


    Hi there,

    This will require some editing of your theme’s functions.php file. If that’s beyond you, you might want to seek out a developer who can assist you with it.

    Open functions.php. At the bottom of the file, if you see this:


    Make sure you paste the code for this before that.

    Bill Erickson has some code that will display a menu’s description field:

    Put that in your theme’s functions.php file and the menu will show descriptions. If you don’t see a description field in your menus, when you’re on the Menus page ( under Appearance ), open the small “Screen Options” tab at the top of the screen. Make sure “Descriptions” is checked and you’ll now see a description for each menu item.
