Hi - thanks for a super addon!

I'm having problems getting the category_heading tag to appear, in fact thte tag refuses to work!

Desktop templates

--- index
--- browse

Mobile templates

--- index
--- browse

Heading tag, used on /browse, same tag in both templates

{exp:channel:category_heading channel="calendar_events"}
    {event_cat_description}/*category custom field*/
    {event_cat_icons}/*category custom field*/

Any ideas? maybe a bug?

    Hi Rob,

    Is that sample an exact copy of the code you have in your template? All I can think of is that you have a typo somewhere in the tag, because Mobile itself doesn't affect that tag at all...

    Just to be thorough... which version of Mobile do have?

    Hi Wouter

    Mobile version 0.9.5
    The code is exactly the same in mobile and desktop. I Just copied/pasted it here.

    If I use Low's seg2cat plagin it outputs Category name and Category description just fine, also if I view a category using a desktop browser the Mobile addon category heading shows, but if I test on a phone (iPhone4) it does not show.

    Hi there
    I'm having the exact same problem... EE v2.7.2 & Mobile v0.9.5
    This is my exact code:-

    {exp:channel:category_heading channel="promotional-pens"}




    currently displays nothing at all

    Can you replicate this behaviour and see if a resolution is available?

    Apologies - the code block didn't render well...

    {exp:channel:category_heading channel="promotional-pens"} {category_name} {category_description} {/exp:channel:category_heading}
