How to use the category lower description
Oct 11, 2017 by Doug DePrenger
This article shows how to use the category lower description, available since version 10.4.5.
A category has a place to provide a description of the category (the Description: field). The description appears where the %CATEGORY_DESCRIPTION% template insert code (tic) appears in the template. The category's content, a list of products and/or other categories, appears where the %CONTENT% tic appears in the template. To put a description below the category's content, the Lower Description: field is used and will appear where the %CATEGORY_LOWERDESC% tic appears in the template.
If the Lower Description: field is to be used, the template insert code %CATEGORY_LOWERDESC% must be put in the template. It is usually placed below the %CONTENT% one. Note the category description is from the %CATEGORY_DESCRIPTION% template insert code and is usually placed just above %CONTENT%.
If you want nothing below the items, leave Lower Description blank and/or leave out %CATEGORY_LOWERDESC%.
If you only want text below the cars, leave Description: blank, fill in the lower description, and include %CATEGORY_LOWERDESC% in the template.
The feature adds flexibility to the category page.
