    Hi,

    When I insert any of the shortcodes through the user interface, not only does the shortcode get generated, but code/text is generated and placed onto my page. The following is an example of choosing a two column shortcode interface. This happens for all of the interface menu. I also can see the code/text listed in the interface.

    Hey Lyse,

    Can you check to see if you have the most recent version of Abundance theme (version 1.2.1).

    If you have any additional plugins running (outside of WooCommerce 1.4+) try disabling them and see if the issue goes away. If it does, you can re-enable the plugins one by one to nail down which one is causing the issue.

    #64471

    Hi Devin,

    I did as you recommended and there is a FAQ Builder plugin that is causing errors once I activate it. Any suggestions?

    Lyse

    #64472

    Hey,

    It seems to be a js conflict (because the shortcode generator is a tinymce plugin). Please use another plugin or write the shortcode manually. Here’s the complete list (not all variations though):

    Hi,

    I have another paid plugin I may try. I have been adding the shortcodes manually. Thank you for your prompt resolution to this.

    Lyse

    #64474

    Hi,

    Inserting shortcodes has stopped working. I deactivated all of my plugins but could not get it to work.I don’t get any error message.

    Lyse

    #64475

    Hi Lyse,

    Just checked your site and you still have 4-5 plugins active. Not sure if you turned them off then back on.

    I created a test page and the shortcodes are still functioning so it most likely is a plugin issue.

    #64476

    Hi Devin,

    I did turn off all of the plugins and ran a test adding shortcodes. There was no change. So I reactivated all of the plugins I need.

    Any other suggestions on what to look for that may be causing this issue.

    Thank you

    Lyse

    #64477

    Hi Lyse,

    You can try re-installing the theme in case one of the files didn’t get uploaded correctly. Its a possibility though not always likely.

    If you have made any changes to the core theme files, make sure to back up those pages/files so that you can re add them.

    #64478

    Hi Devin,

    I did not make changes to the core theme files but did make changes to some of the pages layouts such as the Shop. A question I have, will I loose my dynamic templates and styling?

    Thanks,

    Lyse

    #64479

    Hi Lyse,

    No, you shouldn’t lose any of the custom settings you have in place.

    #64480

    Hi Devin,

    I have reinstalled the Abundance theme twice. No change. I deactivated all of plugins again. No change.What shall we try next?

    Most appreciated

    Hi Devin,

    Any progress on this issue?

    Thanks,

    Lyse

    #64482

    Hi Lyse,

    I’m not able to actually reproduce the issue to diagnose what is causing it. With a new installation of WordPress, Abundance and WooCommerce, the additons to the visual editor will work without issue. I can really only imagine that a plugin is causing the conflict.

    #64483

    Hi Devin,

    Thank you for responding. How unfortunate that I have to restart from scratch, I was almost ready to launch. I will reinstall and try again.

    Lyse

    #64484

    I would recommend to maybe setup a quick dummy blog and test if it works, and if it does restarting from scratch might be the way to go. If it doesnt finding another solution might be smarter since you wouldn’t lose all your data

    #64485

    Hi Kriesi,

    I have installed a new WordPress in a completely different folder on my website domain. I have downloaded the Abundance theme, installed it, and activated it. I try to use the shortcodes on the sample page – no plugins installed or activated at this point. The shortcoldes don’t work except for the HR ones. Weird isn’t it? What do you suspect may be the problem at this point, my server permission are USER read, write, etc..? This is becoming so frustrating at this time because I am just about ready to launch, but would like this to work!

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi Lyse,

    Its hard to say. It sounds like an issue with the host but I really have a hard time thinking of what on the server could cause the javascript issues you are running into. You can try changing the folder permissions to read,write and execute for all temporarily just to test out the folder permissions but again, I’m not sure if that would have any effect.

    If you are uploading the theme with a zip file, try uploading the unzipped full theme via FTP and vice versa if that is the way you are currently doing it.

    Regards,

    Devin

    #64487

    Hi Devin,

    I see on Kriesi’s Twitter that version 1.3 is available. This version is not available on Theme Forest because I get the older one when I download from there. Please, where can I urgently get v1.3? I think this may fix my problem….

    Thanks,

    Lyse

    #64488

    Hi Devin,

    Found it. Installed and activated the latest version. Deactivated all my plugins. No change, problem remains. I’m sad…

    I was thinking of buying another version of the theme for another client, with much larger number of products, but I think I’ll have to look for another solution.

    Let me know if a solution is found.

    Thanks,

    Lyse

    #64489

    Hi Lyse,

    I’m sorry its not working out for you. I really can’t understand why only shortcodes are not working on your installations. If it was a widespread issue we might be able to identify a cause but so far I’ve only encountered your site where it continues to happen without a plugin being the cause.

    Regards,

    Devin

    #64490

    Devin,

    There is another report under topic: blank window on shortcodes generator, that has been reported and sound similar to my issue.

    I’m registered in a WordPress Bootcamp so discussed this issue with my WordPress mentor. I’d like to share with you the feedback I received about this issue.

    “In all the years I’ve worked with WordPress, this is the strangest and most puzzling issue I have come across… with a premium theme like this, especially, I would expect the developer to provide adequate support.

    The only possible problem I can think of is a conflict of some sort… When I look at the code, there is a placeholder for the content of that box, but the javascript is not generating the content. The support forums say that you could just manually enter shortcodes, but where is the documentation for that? I’m having a very hard time finding any documentation at all… very frustrating…

    So I guess all you can do at this point is contact the developer. If he won’t resolve the issue, he should give you some sort of refund or provide a workaround of some sort. “

    Is there anything Kriesi can do to fix this issue? I love the theme and would like to use it!

    Would much appreciate a fix.

    Thanks,

    Lyse

    #64491

    Hey Lyse,

    Thank you for sharing the response. Its definitely a difficult issue to tackle. None of us has been able to replicate it either which makes it even more difficult to figure out. The only step in which we are not a part of is installation and server management which leads my guess as to something being the cause there. When you install, do you upload the unzipped file via ftp or do you use the wordpress zip uploader? Whichever you are currently doing, I would try doing it the other way to see if this effects the issue.

    A full breakdown of the shortcodes is found in the Shortcodes page that is created when you do the dummy content creation. You can find the shortcodes on your site here: http://featherfactorycanada.com/templates/shortcodes .

    As always, you can request a refund from Themeforest as they handle the transactions for the theme.

    We have been trying to find a fix and workaround for you as well and there isn’t anything that has been held back until now that would immediately solve the issue.

    Regards,

    Devin

    #64492

    Hi Devin,

    I’m not giving up yet! I have been using the WordPress zip uploader. I will try the uploading from my FTP to see if I get different results. Is there anything on the server side that could be causing this issue? Anything I can ask my host that you can think of. I’m willing to give you temporary access to my server if you think you could help or see anything that could cause this issue.

    Thank you so very much for all of your support to date.

    Lyse

    #64493

    Hi Devin,

    Uploaded the theme via FTP and not change, the problem still exists.

    Lyse

    #64494

    Hi Lyse,

    Nothing I can think of. I’ll ask the rest of the support crew to take a look as I am out of ideas :)

    Regards,

    Devin

    #64495

    Hi Devin,

    Thank you. In the meantime I will contact my host to see if they can find anything.

    Lyse

    #64496

    Hi Devin,

    I have installed and activated Abundance on my localhost. All works fine! I have open a ticket with my host to help me resolve this issue.

    I will report back anything I find.

    Lyse

    #64497

    Hope they can help you out and let us know the resolution :)

    #64498

    Hi Devin,

    Here’s the response I got: “Unfortunately we are unable to provide support for third party applications. It is possible that it is a setting on our server causing the problem but there are infinite possible settings that it is impossible to try them all to see if it works. If you or your theme developer can determine what settings need to be adjusted we may be able to adjust them for you.”

    In a sense I understand that my host would need some idea of what setting to adjust. Any thoughts on which one(s) could be the culprit? Do you know of any debugging tool that could identify some kind of error code?

    Thanks,

    Lyse
