EKM Tag: [ekm:incategorydescription]

This tag is used to output an editable area unique to each category. You can place images and text within the "in category description" like you would with an editable area.

The "in category description" is different from the "category description" in that the "in category description" is only visible within a category page and the "category description" is only viewable within a showdata and is typically much shorter.

This tag must be placed within the category page template in order to work.

Hiding Surrounding HTML When Empty

You may want to nest this tag to hide HTML that would typically surround the in category description when it is empty.


[ekm:if]
    iftype='EQUALS';
    ifvalue='[ekm:incategorydescription][/ekm:incategorydescription]';
    ifvalue2='';
    ifthen='This is empty';
    ifelse='<div id="incategory-description">[ekm:incategorydescription][/ekm:incategorydescription]</div>';
[/ekm:if]
