HTML in osCommerce Product Descriptions

By | November 16, 2009

Rob asks;

If you don’t mind me asking, what are the current limitations with HTML in the product descriptions? The reason I ask is that I currently utilize HTML tables within the product descriptions to provide a matrix of dimensions for variations of a common product (length, width, unit weight, etc). Is this detrimental without a special contribution? Thanks.

There are not any limitations, other than the fact that in a new install of osC there is no editor present to allow someone who knows no HTML to insert into the product descriptions. In other words, that person has to learn HTML or use a wysiwyg editor, then copy/paste the HTML appropriately.

There is no detrimental effect to what you are doing. But wouldn’t it be easier to be able to do it all from the product adding screen? There are contributions for this…
