How to add category descriptions to category pages

    I’m using the RentalHive theme.

    How can I add the category descriptions to the top of each category archive page?

    I don’t see theme files for archive.php or category.php

    It is already implemented on category page (there is text under category title). To change category description just edit it in Listings/Categories


    Sorry, I should have mentioned that I was asking about blog categories, not listing categories.

    But that’s useful info about the listing pages. I didn’t know that and added descriptions for those too.

    Sorry for confusion, for blog categories you can try using this function and add a custom category.php template to the child theme.


    Thank you.

    For anyone else that might find this topic useful, I was able to add the category title and description on the blog pages by copying the index.php file from the RentalHive theme folder to my child theme folder and named it category.php

    Then I simply added the category title using this function:

    <?php single_term_title(); ?>

    And I added the category description using this function:

    <?php echo category_description(); ?>
