I'm in archive.php and attempting to write out the current category's description with full html. However, category_description() prints without the html markup.

How can I force it to retrieve the full description complete with the html tags?

1 Answer 1


echo get_term_field( 'description', get_query_var( 'cat' ), 'category', 'raw' );
