    This has been fixed in version 2.12. Now, if any filters other than category are applied, the category description text will not appear.

    That should fix part of this problem, but I’m flummoxed as to why the title is appearing twice for you. That seems very odd – please can you update to 2.12 and let me know if this is completely fixed? Otherwise I’ll need access to your server to figure the duplicate title part.

    2.12 will be released in an hour or two.

      I have updated to version 2.12 and the issue is still present. It now seems that when I select one attribute the duplicate text appears, but if I then select another attribute the text disappears. When I click on the X to remove one of the attributes the duplicate text returns again.

      I have added your SSH key to the server, 188.166.9.230

        Hi – sorry for the delay in getting back to this. I’ve re-opened this bug and I’m working on it now along with other bug fixes for FWW.

    Hi – can you please check against 2.14 and confirm this bug is fixed?

    I had real difficulty reproducing it, and I suspect the main problem was auto-update not working.

    I’ve found that the text is NOT duplicated if you use the permalink URL:

    https://foundthru.com/product-category/dogs/barbecue/

    That’s the equivalent to https://foundthru.com/product-category/dogs/?filter_flavour=160

    However, if I disable pretty-permalinks on foundthru and then reload the URL you provided, things actually get worse, not better – now the category text is listed *twice* with 2 separate titles.

    Dogs
    Dogs are called a man’s best friend for good reason. If it weren’t for dogs, our population would never have exploded after we left Africa and we wouldn’t have destroyed the neanderthals.

    For thousands of years, they’ve been by our side helping chase and tire down prey, cleaning up our scraps, warning us of approaching predators (their sense of smell is 200,000 times better than ours!) and now all they want is a little love.

    Buy your dog a toy, a bed, a treat, a rope to tug on – it doesn’t matter, you know your dog will love it.

    I’ve got a fix in the works and it should be out in today’s release if testing goes well.

    Fixed in 2.18, shortly to be released. Here’s the relevant part of the changelog:

    • Removed category description text when any filters other than category are applied
    • Fixed double category description text when using non-pretty-permalinks and category + attribute were selected
    • Fixed bug causing inaccurate title to be displayed if user visited non-pretty-permalink with pretty-permalinks enabled. Now the attributes are correctly collected and titles correctly displayed, even if you visit an old style non-pretty-permalink URL
    • Fixed bug causing duplicate titles to appear on some pages with some themes
