so I am not sure how to debug this. I can pull all information from a category but I cannot get the 'description' attribute to pull through. It just appears blank.
This doesn't work:
<?php ... $_helper = $this->helper('catalog/output'); $_category = $this->getCurrentCategory(); ... ?> <?php if($_description=$this->getCurrentCategory()->getDescription()): ?> <div class="category-description std"> <?php echo $_helper->categoryAttribute($_category, $_description, 'description') ?> </div> <?php endif; ?>
However getName, url, getting the image, or even the custom thumbnail works but just not text fields, all other attributes I can call. I am not sure if there is a setting I am missing or something else is happening.
