    In what way are you wanting to link an ez page to a category description?
    Provide a link to go to a category?
    Have an ez page display the description of a category?

    Please describe the desired display, method of accessing the display, etcetera to provide an applicable solution.

    The second option is what I intend to do.
    I need to provide an accurate description of a category and the space allotted for description is not enough.
    So I thought to create an EZ page to provide a more accurate and complete description.
    Maybe an EZ page will not be enough because i would like to include pictures and sections maybe chapters.
    Can you provide guidance, please.

    Start at https://docs.zen-cart.com/user/ezpages/ and work your way through the pertinent bullets on that page.

    Create your EZ-Page (they can contain almost anything) and place a link to it in your product's description.

    65,535 characters is not enough for the categories description?

    Could change or increase the data type in the table, though really wonder what category can't be described in that many characters.

    As to alternative display of the description, yes there are alternatives such as has been suggested to use a clickable selection that goes to or pops up the desired content.

    @mc,
    Well, there are sections and I have already set subcategories, site not live yet.
    FYI the product is mate, a south american herbal infusion, not drank the usual way like tea in cups.
    Description must include health benefits, containers are wood or vegetable gourds, need to be prepared, special preparation of the leaves and straw used to suck it in, all those should have visual depictions, there is also a technique for drinking.
    Hope to have the best description of the drink since the vids I saw on Utube are lacking.
    Cheers,
    CK

    The category description is a summary, that information should reside on the product's page so that when purchasing it is there... People will not read it on the category index page.
