Product description

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I want to show product description at product listing page.

 

I have seen some contributions about how to add a short description at product listing page.All of those contributions involved some modification of the database structure.

 

But I don't want to change the database structure.

 

Could anybody tell me how can I add a description at the product listing page without modifying database structure!

Thanks in advance

That depends. If you want to show something different from your normal product description you are stuck to something new. If a part from the orignal product description would do then you can just add that underneath the product name in your product listing. You can see a very rudimentary example on my shop as I kept it simple and just show the first 60 characters from the normal product description without checking for line breaks, if I am in the middle of a word or anything.

Look in your catalag/modules/product_listing.php for

          case 'PRODUCT_LIST_NAME':
           $lc_align = '';
           if (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id'])) {
             $lc_text = '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'manufacturers_id=' . $HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id'] . '&products_id=' . $listing['products_id']) . '">' . $listing['products_name'] . '</a> <br><br> ' . substr($listing['products_description'],0,60) . '...';
           } else {
             $lc_text = ' <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, ($cPath ? 'cPath=' . $cPath . '&' : '') . 'products_id=' . $listing['products_id']) . '">' . $listing['products_name'] . '</a> <br><br> ' . substr($listing['products_description'],0,60) . '...';
           }
           break;
