Cannot edit category description

Hi,

I am trying to edit the description for of my categories, but there exists no “edit description” button.

We have deleted all the default “About the XXX category” topics because they don’t fit with the style of our forum. In fact, we have also tried manually posting these topics back in to try to change the description, but that doesn’t have any effect.

I have attached a screenshot to show the relevant category settings window.

Thanks in advance,
Max

P.S. a little off topic but… does anyone know if the category description on discourse relates to the pages meta description for search engines?

That shouldn’t have been done. Category descriptions are part of every category and can brake things down, like in this case. Perhaps, if there aren’t any posts in the site feedback category, try deleting it and making a new one?
