Guest Posted September 12, 2007 Share Posted September 12, 2007 (edited) I have been installing contributions to a clean install os osCommerce. This is provided by my hosting company and installs itself with a few clicks from my control panel. According to "Server Info" this is osCommerce 2.2-MS2. I thought I had been testing everything as I installed each contribution, but now KI realize that I can no longer use HTML to format my product description field. After some searching on the forums I found this post: http://www.oscommerce.com/forums/index.php?s=&...st&p=692841 which suggested the problem was in catalog/includes/functions/database.php I replaced the tep_db_prepare_input function and everything works fine. But, when I look back thru the milestones I took after each contribution install, I find that that was modified when I installed Ultimate SEO. Now, I can use HTML in my product description, but I am wondering how that effects Ultimate SEO and what it will do to the web site's rankings in the search engines. If using HTML in the product descriptions is a bad thing for the way Ultimate SEO massaging things for the search engines, how does one format the product descriptions so that doesn't happen? Thanks in advance for any suggestions and help. Ken Edited September 12, 2007 by kloomis Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
