Editor and HTML in short description
« on: April 17, 2018, 17:35:11 pm »
Hello everyone!
I simply would like to add a text editor to products short description, or at least make it accept HTML tags.
I've tryed and HTML tags are removed, and searching through the forum i just found this: but it's very old and can't find help about what file to modify.
Anyone can help?
Thank you!

That was 7 years ago!!!  A superuser can type html into the short desc and it will be saved and displayed in the FE. I seem to remember that not all tags are accepted, though.

It certainly works with VirtueMart 3.2.14
