Category Description Is Not Showing Up


Recommended Posts



I would like my description (that I wrote in my back-office) to appear on the front office of my category.

But whatever I do, it does not show up on my page.




Moreover, there is a H1 that takes the category name but I do not want it. I want to write my own H1.


Could you help me ? Thank you.


Below you will find the category.tpl and 2 screenshots
