Category Description

Hello, I am hoping someone can help me. 


I am adding a category Description to all of our website Category pages so we have some good SEO text and a description to help the end user.


I have added these but the block for the Category Description I am changing which is in (Manage Category > Categories > Description) is showing at the very bottom of the page rather than at the top that we would prefer. I have attached images could anyone tell me how to move this piece of text ourselves to the top of the website categories. I have attached images and your help is grateful.

Re: Category Description

Hi @marketing360uk


You need to modify the category view page:


Find this code for Description

<?php if($_description=$this->getCurrentCategory()->getDescription()): ?>
    <div class="category-description std">
        <?php echo $_helper->categoryAttribute($_category, $_description, 'description') ?>
<?php endif; ?>

Find this code for Imagen

   if ($_imgUrl = $_category->getImageUrl()) {
       $_imgHtml = '<p class="category-image"><img src="'.$_imgUrl.'" alt="'.$this->escapeHtml($_category->getName()).'" title="'.$this->escapeHtml($_category->getName()).'" /></p>';
         $_imgHtml = $_helper->categoryAttribute($_category, $_imgHtml, 'image');
