I've got one of these situations which now is taking me already 2 days but I cannot get my head wrapped around it. I just cannot find out why on two different subcategory pages, on one the description is shown, and on the other one, no matter what I do, it will not whow.

Here it works: https://www.persempretoys.nl/seo/kidkraft-poppenhuis all the way down on the page is the standard description for this category. But here it doesn't: https://www.persempretoys.nl/seo/kidkraft-keuken And these categories are built up in the exact same way.

So in the

there is this section which invokes the description:

<?php if($_description=$this->getCurrentCategory()->getDescription()): ?>
        <div class="category-description std">
            <?php echo $_helper->categoryAttribute($_category, $_description, 'description') ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

It is a Magento shop, but I cannot get this one solved quickly. Any ideas from you ? Or anymore people who have encountered this ?

Edit: Background info added

  • Share Code that you are Using to fetch and some other info will also be useful Oct 15 '15 at 6:32
  • Hi Vishwas, it is all the default Magento stuff, nothing special. But I will add it, no problem. Oct 15 '15 at 6:36
  • Did you tried flushing Cache ? checked the store view which you have entered short description and trying view ? Oct 15 '15 at 6:50
  • Yes, flushed all caches and manually cleaned out the var/cache directory but that's not it. All the 'easy' things I have tried :) Oct 15 '15 at 7:23
  • Store View ? compilation ? Oct 15 '15 at 7:27

Admin - System - Index Management - Category Flat Data - Reindex data. That should do it.

  • Nope Vishwas, sorry but I tried all the apparent and easy things. Even manually cleaning the var/cache dir and deleting all sessions etc. Oct 15 '15 at 7:24
