Problem with some categories not showing in the backend.
« on: October 01, 2018, 10:45:07 am »
I have a very strange problem with my website.( VirtueMart 3.4.0, Joomla! 3.8.3 Stable )
I  Go to  Virtuemart --> Product Categories-->Search for Miele categories --> The system shows that there 19 results but only shows one ( see screenshot) --> I am therefore unable to edit or change or find the rest of the relevant virtuemart categories in the backend . However the categories show properly in the front end.

Can you please suggest what might be going wrong.

Regards

P.

Do You have html tags or js in the category description ? This could break the the back end view.

Thank you so much for your answer ...
I have inline css in the category description
<style type="text/css">.orderby-displaynumber {
    display: none;
}.even-odd.container-fluid {
    display: none;
}.vm-pagination {
    display: none !important;
}</style>

and also Links from the category description lead to articles where I have javascript .

Any workaround ??

I found a way to access the categories through product view ... but this is not really a good solution.

I think this is under discussion within the VM team ( the shortening leaves tags unclosed) and may be fixed in the next release
