I would like to display the “Category View” in CMS pages.  Basically the view of the Category’s name, picture and description, and have it link to the category page.  I though I would try bringing in the view block by trying:
{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="your_category_id" template="catalog/category/view.phtml"}} but I get a pretty bad error, any thoughts?

The block type I am putting in is actually:
{{block type="catalog/category_view" category_id="13" template="catalog/category/view.phtml"}}

Does anyone have an idea on this?  I am looking to do something similar to this.  I want a custom page that lists the category pictures and descriptions of some selected categories.  I thought I could do it in the CMS, and I thought the code above would work, but it doesn’t seem to.  I can get products in these categories displayed but not the Category Description. 

Any thoughts?

Thanks Rick
