WooCommerce gives you the option to provide a shorter product description (like an excerpt) as well as a longer description. In most themes, the short description appears in the product summary area along with the product title, price and add to cart form, next to the images. The long description appears in the tabs underneath.
This is fine a lot of the time but often, especially if your product descriptions are quite brief, you don’t need two separate fields. And if you’re used to working with WordPress it’s quite unintuitive to ignore the main content area and add your product description to the short description field, positioned towards the bottom of the edit page.
It’s simple enough to remedy this by unhooking the short description from the product summary area and replacing it with the main content. Add this to your
functions.php file to avoid any messing around with WooCommerce template files.
/* * Remove excerpt from single product */ remove_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_excerpt', 20 ); add_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'the_content', 20 );
