  • Short Description on Featured Items?

    Is there any easy way to add the short product description to the featured items on the homepage?

  • #2
    I saw that the short description is being displayed on the search page. You should be able to get the tag from there.

        If you did it right you will need to clear the cache in:
        setting, general, store setting to see your results

        I did a test for you. You can see were I placed the code in red:
        Code:
        <!--START: ITEM_TEMPLATE_0-->
                <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5" border="0" width="99%" class="alternative">
                  <tr>
        						<td align="center" height="150"><a href="product.asp?itemid=[catalogid]"><img src="thumbnail.asp?file=[THUMBNAIL]&amp;maxx=0&amp;maxy=150" alt="[name]" border="0"></a></td>
        					</tr>
                  <tr>
        						<td class="item" align="center" height="60"><a href="product.asp?itemid=[catalogid]">[name]</a></td>
        					</tr>
        					<tr>
        									<td class="item">[description]</td>
        								</tr>
                  <tr>
        						<td class="price" valign="top" align="left"><!--START: ITEMPRICE-->
                      <b>[product_yourprice]&nbsp;</b><span class="price">[ITEMPRICE]</span>
                      <!--END: ITEMPRICE-->
        I should confirm Yes this is on the home template

        Enjoy!

          Yes, I actually called tech to see what the heck was going on. I even deleted my home.html page and it still showed normal. They informed me of the cache settings and then all was good. I appreciate your help as well.

          This would explain why I was having tons of issues seeing changes on other pages as well.
