Can you pull in the description of a custom tax on pages other than the taxonomy-(custom-tax).php
i.e on the home page you want to show the description of a custom tax.
This works on the aforementioned archive page but nowhere else:
<?php echo term_description( '', get_query_var( 'taxonomy' ) ); ?>
Many thanks for any help.
Simply use the term id to replace
'' and the taxonomy name to replace
get_query_var( 'taxonomy' ).
echo term_description( $term_id, 'your_custom_tax_name_here' );
P.S. Have you ever heard about Codex?
