How do I display a category description, image or other content?

You can display text, images, slideshows or any HTML content on specific category pages by using the Insert Content method.

For example, we might use x-ic-before-category My Category Name to display a banner before the page content on our Women product category page.

To do this, we create a new page called..

x-ic-before-category Women

..(note that we have replaced My Category Name with our category name).

Switch to HTML mode because we are using HTML code to insert our image.

Insert an image into the content of our new page as explained in the support article How do I insert an image into my Big Cartel shop page? For example:

<img src="http://i.imgur.com/0Swi7i8.jpg" alt="Women Category">

To apply our changes, we click the Done and then the Save link at the top of the page edit controls.

Subcategory Content

The same method can be used for product subcategories. For example, if we wanted our content to be displayed on a subcategory Pants of the parent category Women we would create a new page called..

x ic before category Women - Pants

..because our My Category Name is equal to Women - Pants. For instructions on creating product subcategories, see How do I edit product categories and subcategories in my Big Cartel admin?

For other Insert Content options on your category pages, as well as other areas of your shop, please refer to the Insert Content Method support articles.
