Allow HTML in Category Descriptions


When you add text to the category description textarea and save the category, WordPress runs content filters that
strips out all but the most basic formatting tags.

This plugin disables those filters. Any html code you add to the category description will not be stripped out.

This plugin does not do anything other than disable the filters. It does not protect you from entering invalid HTML,
nor does it help you create WYSIWYG HTML. You can use the post or page composing screen to help you create the text
and formatting. Switch to the ‘code’ tab and copy the HTML code into the category description field.

Tangkapan Layar

  • Adding HTML code to the category description
  • A preview of the category description in the category list admin screen
  • What the category looks like on the front-end if your theme supports it (here shown with the Twenty Fourteen theme)


  1. Upload html-in-category-descriptions.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Paste or type HTML code in the category description and save.
  4. Enjoy HTML in your category descriptions
