Short Description Not Showing

Recommended Posts

Hi all

i am new to cubecart but like what i am seeing so far

i have installed the latest version 6.2.2, i dont seem to be able to get the short description text to show up even though it is typed in the box

do i have to enable this? i have looked all through the admin but i cant see a setting for it

regards

Welcome steve! Glad to see you made it to the forums.

There is no setting to enable a short description. The short description is given to the template rendering engine (Smarty), but then it depends on the storefront skin to show it.

For the stock Foundation skin, the short description will only show in the "list" view of the View Category page.

That is correct and I dont think any other third party skins do anything with it except our Retail Therapy skin (https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/skins/retail-therapy-skin) which, in combination with our free Skin Configuration plugin, (https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/plugins/havenswift-hosting-skin-configuration) gives you the option of displaying the short description under the Latest Products on the homepage.

If you are interested in that skin but would like the short description displayed somewhere else,get in touch and I am sure that it can be added

Thanks

Ian
