Support » Plugin: Front-end Editor » Editing categories shows [Empty] instead of the inputted categories

  • Resolved Jaya


    Hi 🙂

    I’ve been using the alpha version that allows editing categories through input box instead of drop down menu for a while. Today i saw the change log and it says that the feature made it to the stable version. So i updated to it.

    My issue is that when I edit any of the categories, they reset and show [Empty] when I save. What could be causing the issue?

    Thank you very much for the help!

  • Also, I tried to go back to the Alpha but that didn’t help either.

    Same problem here. Any help?

    Hm… it would be helpful if you could post the generated HTML markup, i.e. the <span class="fee-field"... bit.

    And also the underlying PHP code from your theme, i.e. the_category( ... ). The entire loop surounding that code would be nice, actually. Put it on if it’s too long.

    After editing the categories and then clicking save it shows [Empty]. If we reload the page we see that the post got the Uncategorized Category. It resets all the categories.

    <span data-type=”terminput” data-post_id=”1178″ data-taxonomy=”category” data-before=”” data-sep=”, ” data-after=”” data-filter=”the_category” class=”fee-field”>Uncategorized</span>

    I’m using the Thesis theme.

    I’m listing the categories by using

    echo get_the_category_list(‘, ‘);

    but I’m not finding where that function is.

    Ah, ok, I can reproduce it now. Stay tuned for a fix.

    There, the Development Version (2.1.2-alpha) should work.

    Works like a charm. Thanks! Great work!

    I think I found another bug.

    When using the plugin, the titles in the main page are appearing twice.

    For a post named “this is a test post” the title in the main page is displayed:

    This is a test post”>This is a test post

    In the post page there’s no problem but all the titles in the main page appear like that. Hovering the mouse on the title there’s an alt text:

    Permanent link to <span data-type=

    Any help?

    If that doesn’t help, please start a new thread, as this one has been resolved.

    Yes,it worked. I fixed my theme. Thanks a lot, once again. Everything is perfect now.

    Sorry for the delay in response. I’m glad that you were able to reproduce and fix the issue (Thank you rpOliveira!) . The fix worked great!

    Thank you very much!!!
