    Default HTML code in Product Description

    Have been adding in products to the cart and in some cases going back in to alter the text of the product description via (Product in category). Up to now the description was always PLAIN TEXT as entered by me.

    Tonight now for some reason when I go to do this the Text for ALL PRODUCTS has some HTML coding embedded in it. I think I have by mistake turned this option on to show this. What did I do wrong and how do I get it turned off not to show this ?

    What's the easiest way to do back ups ?

    Default Re: HTML code in Product Description

    Hmm... if you entered plain text, there would be no HTML code whatsoever in/under it. Did you mean that you entered text as you want to see it (WYSIWYG)? Then there would be something to toggle. Do you have an HTML editor installed or active for text entry? What does the text with tags in it look like (post an example)?

    Here is what I mean. I never used any of the coding or any < > in my description.

    <center><b><font color="#009933" size="2" face="arial,helvetica,sans-serif">Black & White Landscape of Clifden Bay in Ireland</font></b></center><p><font size="2" face="arial,helvetica,sans-serif">Here you will find a Fine Art Black and White Landscape of Clifden Bay in County Galway by Photographer Neil McShane, L.I.P.P.A. Neil uses high-end digital cameras to capture the images and then converts them to black & white. </font></p><p><font size="2" face="arial,helvetica,sans-serif">During this conversion process the image is transformed into the prints he had visualised before releasing the camera shutter.

    Default Re: HTML code in Product Description

    You entered your text in an HTML editor, which has since been toggled off to reveal the code the editor added to make it format as you instructed. There will be a small selection field in the product editing page to toggle the editor on or off. Failing that, you can set the default in admin > Configuration > My Store > HTML Editor.

    There is an option HTMLArea or Plain Text. Changing it to the latter doesn't make any difference.

    OK... "plain text" means displaying without the aid of HTML rendering (which will show any HTML code embedded in it). What you want is not really plain text, but the HTML editor version which shows all the text formatted for final display.
