WordPress Category HTML Description plugin

By February 14, 2010 June 11th, 2015 Development

To more personalize your WordPress blog you can use the categories description. But WordPress uses content filters that strip out all but the most basic formatting tags. And we can not add HTML code for the categories descriptions.

Our team wrote a small WordPress Category HTML Description plugin, which solves this problem.
Plugin disables content filters and any html code you add to the category description will not be stripped out.


  1. Upload `wc_cat_description.php` to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

To show html category description use the following code in your category.php/archive.php template.

<?php if(function_exists('wc_category_html')) : ?>
	<?php wc_category_html(); ?>
<?php endif; ?>
