building on to my previous query, I'm looking for a way to display the current tag's name and description in the sidebar of the tag archive. I've tried using get_queried_object_id(), but that does not seem to work for archives.

(I'm already using the Custom Sidebars plugin that allows me to display a PHP Code Widget on the tag archive only, so I'm essentially only looking for a way to get the display itself working.)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much in advance,


  • Have you tried get_the_archive_title()? developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/… Commented Nov 28, 2017 at 16:55
  • Don't know how I missed that - worked like a charm! (In conjunction with get_the_archive_description(), for anyone who means to recreate this in the future)
