    Hi guys,

    As in the topic title, is there any plugin that does help you adding content, like in the thesis theme, to a category so it would look like a post?

    Doing this you won't get duplicate content penaltys and you will be able to do some SEO on the category pages and get more optimized, keyword-rich pages for SE's to index.

    Thanks in advance.

    The category_description function, as the names suggests, is meant to display the category description and it may be used by some SEO plugins like SEO Platinum as the Meta Description of the category page. I want to use the categories as a page/post but still have the Meta Description on them.

    In other words, I want to be able to edit the Title and the Content, and also be able to edit them in a WYSIWYG editor, like the built-in posts/pages editor of wordpress.

    You can do this by hard coding your category URL's into your menu navigation and then change your category view from the_excerpt to the_content

    I have done this many times in the past when I was lazy to do more manipulation of the WP theme I was using.

    Not hard at all.
