Please help - Default text for product description

Recommended Posts

I worked it out if anyone is interested :

 

Put this at the top and add the string $default_description to the text area value.

 

// default product description

if(isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['pID'])){

$default_description = "";

} else { $default_description = "<b>Some default text</b>";

}

File: admin/categories.php

 

After line 18 (approx):

 

Add:

 

// default product description
// you can put anything instead of the HTML code I have entered
if(isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['pID'])){
 $default_description = ""; 
} else {   $default_description = "<b>Dimensions:</b> <br>
<b>Length:</b> <br>
<b>Width:</b> <br>
<b>Height:</b> <br>
<b>Depth:</b> <br>
<b>Diameter: </b>"; 
}

 

 

Then around line 538:

 

Replace:

 

<td class="main"><?php echo tep_draw_textarea_field('products_description[' . $languages[$i]['id'] . ']', 'soft', '70', '15', (isset($products_description[$languages[$i]['id']]) ? stripslashes($products_description[$languages[$i]['id']]) : tep_get_products_description($pInfo->products_id, $languages[$i]['id']))); ?></td>

 

With:

 

<td class="main"><?php echo tep_draw_textarea_field('products_description[' . $languages[$i]['id'] . ']', 'soft', '70', '15', (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['pID']) ? tep_get_products_description($pInfo->products_id, $languages[$i]['id']) : stripslashes($default_description))); ?></td>

Thank you so much, it works Great! I can't thank you enough, I was also wondering if you knew a way to add several drop down menus, just in the admin and when a selection is made while adding a new product from the drop downs it would show in the description, any help or direction on documents that can help me do this would be great if you know of any, Again THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!
