Admincp Applications (top tab) Display Node Tree (top left or 1st centre icon)
In the centre, click the Category you want to edit with text.
You'll probably see other stuff indented under each Category? depends how much you've set up.
2nd item down is Description:
Write in that box what you want to see on the bar.
If you'd like a line break (like Return on keyboard) put <br />
If you'd like some words in bold put <b> before the first word, and </b> after the last one so the bold words are contained on each side.
Test by refreshing your front site page.
Twiddle - refresh ... till you're happy.
You can choose the colour and size in Style Properties.
You can do fancy stuff too .... different colour per Category etc
lotsa nice design games
Brogan, I understand that is the way it is supposed to work, but with my style, text on hover occurs for categories as well...which is why I was trying to figure out what the issue is. I get text on hover for both categories and forms. I don't want the text for the forums to show all the time. Just on the categories as is done here.
Ok - I found the setting to make it work (uncheck Display Category Descriptions in a Tooltip), but...the text is next to the category title and doesn't show all the text for that reason. How can I get the text underneath the cat title like XF?
It will probably be best to post that back over at XenStyles for better support as not many here could answer that. In short, it is most likely as designed because the category Image is a certain height, adding under it would probably break the layout. I'm sure there is a workaround though.
