Wordpress Custom Post Type category description text
Posted on 2016-10-05
Hi! I installed the Custom Post Type UI plugin which makes it easy to create a custom post type. I have a page that renders the full list of posts in this custom post type - the standard "archive" page. But if you type in a category description for a custom post type, it doesn't seem straightforward how I would show this information on the given archive page for a custom post type category.
I'm not terribly strong in PHP, but I can modify (child) theme files to customize as needed.
I'm just not sure where to start. My custom post type name is 'protocols', and lets say my protocol category is "XYZ" with ID of '123'. Any recommendation on syntax and where I'd place this code to sense the current category page we are viewing and display the description text above the blog roll loop?
