Default Custom text box at top of specific category?

How can I add a custom text box to the top of an individual category? Don't want to use the 'description' box, as I want to add an image and a clickable link.

Thanks in advance.

Hi

You will need to create a new view under CATEGORY PAGE, assign that view to the specific category you want to target and then add the text box to the top of the page of the new custom view. Then, anytime your specific category is displayed, the text will appear.

Exactly as I thought. Would I assign the view as:
view>view properties>custom css id>view=23206?

Then I just copy the code that I want from my universal category page, correct?

Thanks again!

No, you don't need to touch the CSS stuff.

Yes, you'd copy the layout and modules from the default category view.
