[Resolved] Conditional based on Content in product-category description

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem: I would like to create a conditional that checks to see if the description of a product category term exists.

Solution:
In a View of the Product Category taxonomy, you can use the wpv-taxonomy-description shortcode:

[wpv-conditional if="( '[wpv-taxonomy-description]' ne '' )"]
  Description is not empty. Description is [wpv-taxonomy-description]<br />
[/wpv-conditional]

It's possible in a View of the Product Category taxonomy. There is a shortcode wpv-taxonomy-description that can be used in a taxonomy View to access the term description. You can use it in a conditional like this:

[wpv-conditional if="( '[wpv-taxonomy-description]' ne '' )"]
  Description is not empty. Description is [wpv-taxonomy-description]<br />
[/wpv-conditional]

This is only possible in a taxonomy View. Here's the shortcode definition:
