Turn on template path hints

system->config->developer->Debug->template path hints

See from which template file, it gets rendered. I think it is


Once you found the file navigate to it. Check the class for printing description.

Or you can do that using static block also.


Category description is displayed from your theme/default/template/catalog/category/view.phtml file.

In your view file you can find this code:

<?php if($_description=$this->getCurrentCategory()->getDescription()): ?>
    <div class="category-description std">
        <?php echo $_helper->categoryAttribute($_category, $_description, 'description') ?>
<?php endif; ?>

Copy this code from and paste it where you want to display category description.
