The item description is displayed in a new paragraph below the item name. This wastes a lot of space. I would like to remove the item description from both.

I would also like to have the SKU immediately infront of the item name on the Main Cart (not the Mini-Cart).

I need the SKU to be on the shopa_formatorder.asp page as well.

Can you tell me how to do this? Thanks.

For the item description that goes into the order item line (ie the description you see in the mini-cart item description and also in shopa_formatorder.asp), you can change that via the config option:


in that config option you type in the names of the columns from the products table that you want the system to put into the order-item description.

eg if you want to show the product code, then the product name, you'd enter:


If you want to change it so that it adds, say a space instead of a newlline between each of those values, then edit shopproductsubs.asp and look for:

Sub GetNameInCart

and a few lines down change this:

if nameincart<>"" then
nameincart=nameincart & "<br />"
end if

to something like this:

if nameincart<>"" then
nameincart=nameincart & " "
end if
