This plugin was discontinued as there was little interest in it. It no longer works in newer WordPress versions. It seemed like a good idea at the time but very few people even tried it…
If you are organizing your blog by category and perhaps using the “Categories” menu for navigation, this plugin will help you make nice category descriptions that appear at the top of each category page. It enables the WordPress visual editor (TinyMCE) on the Edit Category admin page and lets you add or edit the descriptions the same way you write posts. It lets you add images, links, lists, font colours, headings, etc.
If your theme doesn’t display category descriptions, have a look at the WordPress codex page about the
category_description template tag.
Standard WordPress quick and easy installation:
- Upload the “cat-description-editor” folder to the plugins directory and activate the plugin.
- Log in WordPress and activate the plugin.
- Edit any category to see the changes.

Version 1.0 supports (and requires) WordPress 2.7. The enhanced editor is only available on the Edit Category page. To add description to a category, create it first then edit it by clicking on it’s name.
