    I’d like to have a page in my blog where I could write a little introduction and just after it, to show all the posts I’ve written under a Category, and that it will be showing automaticaly all posts I will write under that category in the future. I think this is not possible right now with a blog hosted at wordpress.com. You just can create a menu item that shows all the posts of a certain Category, but I will like to enrich that with some extra text and some images either. If there is no way right now to do that, maybe should be considered as a future functuionality.

    The blog I need help with is homogastronomicus.wordpress.com.

    I agree that the functionality to add the extra “intro” text in category pages would be a cool feature on all themes. However, I have read that some themes do make use of the category description to do just that. Will poke around and see if I can find a reference, but at least we have a lead on how to do it.

    I had thought that a category specific “sticky” post would be a nice thing to incorporate to accomplish what you are describing.

    This post seems to describe how to do what you want using CSS:

    Ah, here is the source I was remembering about the category descriptions and the themes that use them:

    Thank you very much, but this is not working for the theme I use. Otherwise what I’m looking for is a little bit more complex than that and I have finally assumed that is not actually way of doing it in wordpress.com hosted blogs. It’s only possible on self hosted ones.
    I still think that should be an available functionality to create a page where to display all posts written under a category with some intro text or/and images.
