I have added in my MySQL Table "Category" a new field called "Description2" and now i would like to at a global (not sure if I can add this to the global?) so i can call the field in the templates files.

So I would like to add to the category.html (the template file) the following code:

<%if Description2%>

and it should show the information of the "Description2" field from the MySQL table "Category".

It would be very nice if somebody could explain me what i need to do.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for my english. I hope everybody understands what i mean.

I have also added extra fields in my category/links table
In Links-SQL 2.0, you are able to add the tag directly into the subcategory template

What do I need to change in the Category.def file?

The first thing i need to do is to ad to the "'cols' =>" the code for the new field:

'Description2' => {
'pos' => '10', #because it is after the field footer
'type' => 'TEXT',
'form_type' => 'TEXTAREA',
'form_size' => '30',

The next thing i need to do is change all the "'pos'" to the new position of the fields.

Then what do i need to do?

And how did you do that?

Could you please post an example.

That would be really nice!

No, you don't want to edit the def files manually. Go to Database->Category->Properties and click on Add New Column. You can enter your information in there.
