[resolved] WooCommerce 2.1 Missing Visual Editor (20 posts)

    After updating to v2.1 the visual editor seems to have been removed from the Product Short Description. Is there anyway to get that back?

    I personally like the placement of the text next to the image vs the description under it.

    Thanks!

    It should still be there...Try dumping your browser cache...

    Deleting woocommerce and reinstalling the plugin will probably fix it to. I had a few problems yesterday, not this particular problem, and the only thing that did work was deleting and reinstalling.

    If I delete it would I lose all my setting? I'm just getting started with this plugin.

    Also this is definitely an issue with the upgrade. As I noticed it only happened after the update on the very I was playing with.

    Roy, that is the problem. Before I had the same visual editor as the one on the top. Now it's like bare as it is in the screen you just shared.

    This shows you what I mean. You'll notice both are the same which is what I had before.

    Wait, perhaps I am not understanding you. I thought you're saying the content area for short description is missing.

    But now ( after you showed your screenshot ) I think would you mean is the tinyMCE buttons are missing? Is that correct?

    Also in your screenshot, you pointed out several other things. Are there any issues with those as well?

    Roy thanks for the response. I'm still a rooking with WP.

    The screenshot isn't mine, just one I found that showed the issue.

    If you notice the Visual Editor (TinyMCE) has a ton of icons and options under ADD NEW PRODUCT. However, those same icons and options are also available under PRODUCT SHORT DESCRIPTION. Basically it mirrors the TinyMCE. After the update there are only 4 buttons like in the screenshot you had. :) Ideally I'd like to get that back to the way it was in the previous version.

    I hope that cleared things up.

    Short description is exactly that - short. It shouldn't need headings etc, so the tinymce buttons were removed to clean up the interface. All of them won't be coming back, but I will look at adding list styles back at least.

    You can still use HTML there as always if you need more tags.

    Mike,

    Thanks for the response. I'm new Woo but I really like the feel of the text to right of my image. It might have something to do with my theme but the formatting doesn't look as nice other way.

    Hopefully there's away to have it on or off.

    cheers!

    I had exactly this problem but resolved it by deactivating the plugin:
    All In One SEO Pack version 2.1.4
    Shame because I'd spent a lot of time on the plugin before discovering the conflict.

    I have the same problem. While I'll bite my lip on the notion that "it shouldn't need headings, etc." I chime in here to add that the option to change the font color was also removed. When we advertise MSRP, MAP specials, etc. the ability to change the font color is quite important to draw a customer's attention. Moreover, changing font color doesn't make the "short description" any longer.

    This was my solution:

    In the file:

    class-wc-admin-editor.php

    comment the line:

    $arr['wc_shortcodes_button'] = WC()->plugin_path() . '/assets/js/admin/editor_plugin_lang.php';

    like this:

    /**
    $arr['wc_shortcodes_button'] = WC()->plugin_path() . '/assets/js/admin/editor_plugin_lang.php';
    */

    after that, the button for visual editing works again.

    Seems like a lot of people are currently looking out for that.

    well, that fixes it. But make sure you close after the return line. Otherwise, it will goes error. Freaking me out.

    /**
    public function add_tinymce_lang( $arr ) {
    $arr['wc_shortcodes_button'] = WC()->plugin_path() . '/assets/js/admin/editor_plugin_lang.php';
    return $arr;
    }*/

    Disabling, deleting and reinstalling Woocommerce did it for me.

    Woocommerce is a big file so make sure it's installed correctly.

    I have the same problem using the Flatsome theme since I updated to Woo 2.1 (and still in 2.2). I have a lot of products with incorrect short descriptions and no way of editing them.
    I've deactivated all other plugins and it didn't help.

    The only place I can find the file 'class-wc-admin-editor.php' is in the Flatsome parent theme folder. Is that the file to edit? And how do I close after the return line?
    I'm sorry, you may have guessed I have no idea what I'm doing :(

    I would delete and reinstall Woocommerce but it says all files and data will be deleted.

    Can anyone offer some step by step help to sort this please?

    I also have this error at the top of my dashboard (in case it could be related)...

    'Your theme has bundled outdated copies of WooCommerce template files – if you encounter functionality issues on the frontend this could the reason. Ensure you update or remove them (in general we recommend only bundling the template files you actually need to customize). See the system report for full details.'
