How to Use the HTML Editor

Last Updated: Jul 10, 2014 09:37AM EDT
ProductCart includes an advanced HTML editor published by InnovaStudio as well as the HTML5 Video Add-on. This complete HTML editor contains a large number of features. Covering all of them is beyond the scope of this User Guide. You will find detailed product information on the InnovaStudio Web site, including a demo and documentation.

Without knowing any HTML, you will be able to create professional looking product descriptions for you store. You can use the built-in HTML editor similarly to any Word processing application that you are used to.

You don’t need to set font type and color when you create a product description, since ProductCart allows you to set a font type for your entire store via the pcStorefront.css cascading style sheet. Keep in mind that if you set any font properties here, they will take priority over your store-wide settings as “in-line” styles have priority over styles set in a separate CSS document (such as pcStorefront.css).

When using the HTML Editor, use the View Source Code option located in the top-right corner of the toolbar (the ”<>” button) to load a separate window called Source Editor where you will see the HTML code associated with your description, which is automatically formatted to make it easier to understand. Use this feature not only to edit any of the code manually - if you need to do so - but also to paste code from your favorite HTML editor.

We recommend that you do not paste HTML code directly into the product description field, since that could cause some conflicts. The HTML editor will validate the HTML code that you paste into its window, and format it so that conflicts are avoided. After you have edited or pasted your code, click on Apply to see the changes reflected in the main window. Click OK to close the Source Editor and return to the main window.
