Not working on category pages in WooCommerce (7 posts)

    I have installed this plugin because I want to use HTML on my product category pages eg. http://www.vinhit.dk/kategori/vintype/

    I am able to add the HTML via the rich text editor in the backend, but it seems that the HTML is stripped in the frontend.

    I'm using WooCommerce and the Canvas theme.

    Any suggestions for how to fix this?

    I have installed for the same reason but in my case the HTML is being retained.
    The major problem however is that some category descriptions can no longer be edited once created. The description text exists in the frontend and it appear as an excerpt in the Woocommerce category screen, but the moment you click on "Edit" the description briefly flashes on the screen and then it's deleted. If you save at this point, you lose your description.
    This is only happening with some categories and I have not been able to find a specific trigger. I am having to deactivate the plugin each time I want to edit the description text, but this is no good to the client whose website I have designed.
    A solution would be appreciated as I can't find another plugin that will deliver this much needed functionality.

    I have the same issue Woocommerce and canvas theme.
    Editing back end looks fine then no formatting front end

    I had the same issue – editor shown correctly on WooCommerce taxonomy/product-page, but the text was gone when I reloaded the page.

    I've found this plugin to work: Rich Tax Description Editor using WP 3.6.1 and WooCommerce 2.0.14

    Hi, I am experiencing the same issue as webrightnow above. I tried the suggestion plugin above but it doesn't even give me a rich text editor.

    I switched to the suggestion from cabgfx above and that plugin works well in my case.
