Add description for each product category? Edit a specific category page?

Recommended Posts

What's the best way to add a text description for each product category, to be displayed when the user navigates to that category? For example:

On /shop/large-widgets I want it to say:
"Large Widgets: These widgets measure 48 inches and are perfect for outdoor use."

But on /shop/small-widgets I want:
"Small Widgets: These widgets measure 24 inches and are recommended for indoor use."

So far I haven't found a great way to edit individual category pages in this way. What's the best practice?

Perhaps the following post will point you in the right direction.

The whole thread covers some variations on the technique.

I don't know if it will work for you as I have no information about your site.

Did you follow the following step?

Add the following to Settings > Advanced > Code Injection > HEADER. 

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

I am trying to get this to work on my 7.1 site. Can anyone help me with where to put the code and how to add the / to the category as discussed above? Add a forward slash to your category in my code.????

this is the code. Can it go in the inject code in the category settings? I don't seem to be able to get it to work.

Any help is appreciated.

hi everyone, I've been following all these recommendations however the descriptions in the header is not ideal for me (or footer for that matter).

I'm in search of coding so that the description is place here, please see image attached with circle. 

There are multiple categories and each has a description that NEEDS to be on the site.
