I don’t understand how to make the “Product Description” appear on the product page. I have added a complete description to my product in the database, but it doesn’t appear on the product page using the Default attribute set.

Make sure the description has been entered in the store you are viewing on the frontend

The product is mapped to a category in the store that I’m viewing in the front-end. I can see all other information for the product except the Product Description.

I think the problem is the difference between “Description” and “Short Description” when creating a product?

As far as I can tell, only the short description is actually shown on the front-end, so I guess the question is, where the “Description” is used then?

Cheers,
