product listing with truncated title


Recommended Posts

we recently upgraded to the cubecart 6 and really liked the foundation skin.

One issue we just noticed is that the product listed under a category all have truncated titles when viewed on a mobile device or when viewed with the three columns on desktop.

How can I change it so that the full title is shown, especially for mobile device?

thanks in advance!

The CubeCart programmers decided that 38 characters would be the limit (40, if you counted the '...' added at the end) for the product name when being displayed in a "panel". A panel is what you get in a "grid view" of three by however many rows is needed. (This is opposed to the "list view" of wide blocks in a single column, where there is plenty of room for a long title.)

In the template content.category.php, near line 143, begins a <div> block having the class "product_grid_view". A few lines later is an <h3> heading tag holding the $product.name , but with a modifier to truncate the phrase to 38 characters, plus the ellipsis.

You can customize the skin template by changing that value, but realize that a customized template will get overwritten on the next upgrade.

Also realize that the "panel" is only so wide. But it will get to be as tall as needed.
