From what I've been able to piece together, all of the categories in Wordpress, both post categories and link categories, are numbered sequentially from the same series.

I'm trying to use the following template tag to access the text descriptions I created for each of my link categories. However, I've found that particular code only allows access to the post category descriptions.

Is anyone familiar with this php call? Or perhaps know another way I can grab the descriptions from my Link Categories?

Thanks!

Hey Olog!

Have you taken a look at the documentation for wp_list_bookmarks? It's designed to be used for accessing data within your blogroll and is extremely customizable. Just glancing through its list of parameters, I didn't see one that looked specifically related to category description, though. :(

That's where I started, but couldn't find anything helpful there. From what I've been able to determine, post categories and link categories are stored and numbered in the same database, but function calls to access the post categories don't work on list categories.

Like category_description(): It will only return post category descriptions.
