Product Descriptions on the main product Page

Recommended Posts

I am offering a fairly modest number of products.

 

Three categories - about 10 products total

 

how do i make the descriptions and attributes on the product ID pages to be discplayed on the Category page OR how can i edit the listings on the catgory page to include the descriptions.

 

Either way, this is a problem as i want to add a fairly heavy disclaimer at every purchase point. I do not have the need for all of these different points of purchase anyway. Simple category pages with full info is best.

 

thanks

thanks kym,

 

what i mean is simple though -

 

when you enter a "category" page.. fro the little box on the upper left -- it is different from the individual "product listing" pages -- the category pages lists the general things in that category, without the descriptions,, in the default store

 

I would like the "catehory pages" to have the product listing info, rather than the extra (unnecessasry) click to the other individual pages

 

 

 

 

Not sure exactly what you mean but there is a contribution that lets you display part of the description on the product listing page - go look

Still a little lost. If you click on a category that has subcategories you will see the subcategories. If you click on a category that just has products you will see the product listing. The default is one line per product with an Image, Product Name Price and Buy Now button. So if you want to also add descriptions here so people can decide whether to buy now or not rather than having to click on an individual product then you use that contribution I referred to. It won't have everything but it is a start for you.

Actually I think that contribution lets you specify how many letters. I believe it is in the SQL file, or in part of the code but you should be able to find it.

you are not "a little lost",... that is exactly what i am saying -

 

When someone enters the "category" page I want the full product listing to be there, rather than " The default is one line per product with an Image, Product Name Price and Buy Now button. " -- that is all..

 

It seems simple.. and strange that it is not just an option - that is defaults to a mantatory exra click link to the full product description page.

 

ALSO - i am not sure which copntribution it is... I saw one that just gives an option for a ONE page store option,, which may also work,, I like the catgories i just don't need it to link to ANTOTHER page from there.

 

UGH!,, always something!

Followed the instructions and now I have an error:

 

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare tep_get_products_info() (previously declared in /home/runningr/public_html/store/catalog/includes/functions/general.php:90) in /home/runningr/public_html/store/catalog/includes/functions/general.php on line 1259

 

Can someone please tell me where I went wrong?

Thanks a bunch
