Adding Products

:thumbsup: Hi Can anyone help me?

 

When adding products to my store I always have to add <BR> tags in order for the text to go on a new line.

 

For example if im stating various point about the product.

 

Is there any way that OScommerce can be formatted so that when a new paragraph is typed it reconises this and when saved looks like this;

 

KEY FEATURES

 

- The USB Power Adapter makes it easy to recharge your iPod anytime and anywhere.

- Automatically adjust to all voltages and frequencies,LED power indicator and changeable plug, perfect for use in your international travel.

- This USB Power Adapter allows you to charge your iPod when connected to a CAPCASE Hotsync & Charge Cable (not included).

- Input, 100-240v~50/60Hz 0.35A.

- Output, 5.2V-2A.

- Other iPod, mini 4GB,/6GB, 4th 20GB/40GB, Photo 30GB/40GB/60GB.

 

 

Instead of this;

<br> means line break, you have to use them to put things on a new line.

 

 

I know that thats what <BR> means, but is there any way something can be changed to that I dont have to add this tag everytime to a new product description. Is there anyway that it can be set up so that oscommerce can reconise a line break?

 

For example the way this forum works? We dont have to use the <BR> tag to get new lines/Paragraphs as it can do this for us.

 

Thanks. :thumbsup:

That's because the forum s/w is translating the linefeeds into <br>. You're working in pretty much straight code with osC. It could be modified but it's not a small task.

I think what you're trying to accomplish could be done using an ordered list, a la old skool HTML

 

I tested this - and in my product description I added these lines of code. I think it'll get your list of features for the product formatted in the way you're wanting. Play wiht the CSS to get the hyphen instead of the bullet and you should be good to go.

 

<ul>
 <li>one</li>
 <li>two</li>
</ul>

Actually installing one of the WYSIWYG editers is a good choice if you want to do more.

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1347

is a great one I install in all of the shops I make.

It allows people who do not know HTML or don't want to have to write the code over and over just type in what they want and it will appear as they see it. Change fonts, sizes, colors... etc. Works great with information pages unlimited which I also always install. lol
