Summary


It is not possible to enter (and insert into the Web page) a meta description for a Weblink category to replace the global meta description. The global meta description always appears in the header of the Weblinks page.

I suspect this has been resolved by https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/pull/4012

Unfortunately, the code supplied by Nicholas at https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/pull/4012/files does not fix the problem. As of Joomla version 3.3.6 at least, the revised code appears in the components/com_content/views/category/view.html.php file but a meta description for a Weblink category still does not replace the global meta description.
