I added this into my function.php file of our child theme to have the description under the price in the listings page. It worked great, however then by boss decided she didn't really want this function and I deleted the code and saved the file. Since then I am seeing half of the description, I can't hide it with css or figure out how to get rid of it. Any help would be great, thanks so much!
