comment Displaying page content in category archive (archive.php)
Yeah - figured that one out. It was a little confusing due to the way the theme I selected was using templates. The template it has selected is "archive.php" but that template outputs categories. Maybe it should be using a category template instead, I don't know. You can see the revised code to see my current workaround

comment Displaying page content in category archive (archive.php)
@Chip - I want to output page content on a category template, where the category name is equal to the page name. I've used other CMS platforms, such as expression engine, where you can just pull URL segment variables - so you could say if url segment 1 == "east_side" - display page_content for page "east_side" - but I'm not familiar with how to do this for wordpress.

comment Displaying page content in category archive (archive.php)
Definitely does - I actually did this with the help of a plugin, but I was hoping for a more dynamic way to do it. I installed a plugin called "Improved Include Page" which allows you to output a page's content in any template using its ID. So I wrote a switch statement saying switch ($catName) { case "east side": iinclude_page(17); break; I'd like to find a dynamic way to do this though, as there are multiple categories for which I need to add multiple page content.
