Tags

Return category info by passing in the category_url_title and channel_short_name.

A red-headed step-child of Low Seg2Cat.

Usage

{exp:segment_category_info segment="{segment_3}" channel="blog"}
	{category_id}
	{category_name}
	{category_description}
	{category_image}
{/exp:segment_category_info}

Caveat

If you have multiple category groups assigned to one channel, each category must have a unique url_title.

Works as described. Seems to not render any content inside the tag pair if no category is matched, however. Would be more useful if it did so that it could be used for more advanced error checking.
