Hi there,

I'm able to add text to a category and have it show on the page. How can I add text to a sub-category and have it display on the page. I add the text but it is not showing. Please see attached.



Thanks!

Hi,

Make sure that you added your text to the description of your category.
Then, edit the menu item of that page via the Joomla menu manager and turn on the "show description" setting under the category or product options tab and it will display it there.

So I turned it on under the "Product Listing" menu and it's showing but it's showing it twice. Thanks!

Hi,

Could you provide a link to that page so that we could check the HTML of that area ?

Hi,

From what I can see, that's because you changed the type of the menu item.
Change it to "products listing", and under the "products options" tab, turn off the "show description" setting and save. Then, change the type back to "category listing" and save.
It should then display the description only once.

I tried what you suggested but I don't see no change - unless I'm doing something wrong.

I made the changes you suggested to the Categories listing (ID 147), as per attached. You said change it to "Product Listing" so I assumed that you are referring to the categories menu.

So not sure what I'm missing.

Hi,

Ah, I see what's the problem.
I think your issue is with the type of the menu item you're using in your categories listing module on the left sidebar.
In it, you should select the "categories listing" instead of the "products listing" menu item in its settings.
That way, the URL of the page you provided will be categories/category/264-face-masks.html instead of products/category/264-face-masks.html and you'll see that it will display properly.
