JEvents 1.5 (No longer actively supported)

How to display Category Description in Event

JEvents 2.0 was launched over 2 years ago and the latest stable version is version 2.2 which will run on Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 2.5. JEvents 1.5 is therefore no longer actively supported - you should upgrade to JEvents 2.2+ as soon as possible.
Forum rules
Please include as much detail in any test or bug reports for JEvents 1.5 as possible.

First of all, check if you are running the latest available version of Joomla! and JEvents. Posts for issues, where both systems are not updated, will be ignored.

We need the following at least:

* PHP version (e.g. 5.2.5). Note: Support for PHP4 is discontinued.
* Joomla! version
* JEvents version
* Web Server software (Apache or IIS with version number if possible)
* Server Operating system (e.g. Linux, Windows, Solaris, Darwin ...)
* Database version
* memory_limit from your phpinfo
* Web browser and version

Please enable error reporting and include any error messages in your posting. You do this via the Joomla Configuration - set "error reporting" to "maximum" on the Server tab.

Finally, please describe the steps required to recreate the problem and also please enable error reporting and give us any error messages generated.

I added a link in the Category Description field and do not see it appear in the Event anywhere. Can this be done?

I think it could be done with a template overrides. This documents provides some hints about doing templates overrides in JEvents:

I've attached a zip file containing a template override to make this work as expected. ie. if only one category is specified in the menu item, the category description is shown (and the category selector is not shown).

This is a bit of a hack but it seems to work fine with jEvents 2.0.11.

I'm really struggling to think of a reason why this isn't the default behaviour.

Thank you a lot for your contribution!!

I guess it's not been implemented because no one has requested it yet.
