I have created a custom taxonomy view. When it is disabled, the taxonomy vocabulary term description shows at the top of the taxonomy page for that term, but when my view is enabled, it does not. How do I include in my taxonomy view the description?
Edit your taxonomy vocabulary.
Add the field (or fields) that you want. (Hint: The existing field named "Description" doesn't work, so create a new text-area field if that's what you want. I called my replacement field "Definition".)
From the List tab, edit each term's value for the new field.
Create a new view.
Show: Taxonomy terms of type: your_vocabulary, with a page display
Continue & Edit
Configure the view to display only your new field(s).
Use pager: Display a specified number of items | 1 item
Add a Taxonomy Term contextual filter
Edit the existing Taxonomy Term view.
Click on the "add" button in the Header section
Select Global view type header
Select the new view you created above
Check the "Inherit contextual filters" checkbox
Now when you visit the Taxonomy Term view, your new fields view will be included at the top.
