I have managed to move my category description to the left sidebar, however it is stuck at the bottom, how can I move it to above the layered navigation.

<move element="category.description" destination="sidebar.main" before="-"/>

I have tried using catalog.leftnav but that doesn't seem to work.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Finally figured this one out, if anyone else has the same issue, here is my answer:

<move element="category.description" destination="sidebar.main"/>
<move element="catalog.leftnav" destination="sidebar.main" after="category.description" />

I add this to Layout Update XML on the category pages I want to change.

Hope this helps anyone
