Product Description in E-Com Template

My E-Commerce template won’t allow my product copy to appear with any line breaks only in one paragraph. How do I fix this?

Thank you,
Karolina

Hi @Karolina,

Product description by default are plain text fields or rather they can be connected by way of a text block or paragraph element. To increase line spacing you would check the height of font line height of the paragraph element itself. Video Reference (https://university.webflow.com/article/line-height)

Hi Brandon,

I know how to setup the text block but when its inside the CMS management system for my e-commerce product descriptions I have no options at all. You just drop the text inside and it automatically just forms a paragraph. None of my line breaks appear.

How do I fix this?

@Karolina,

Can you show me where on your site this issue is happening?

I couldnt find it in my first walk through.

Hi Brandon,

Can you please help me with updating my POP-UP window for Black Friday for my e-com?
I looked but can’t figure out how…

I have a similar question - is there a way to enable rich text formatting for the product description section in the e-commerce template? Currently its not allowing me to separate the content into different lines as its not respecting line breaks. I would also like to style the text in the description field - bold, italics, etc. How can I do this?

Hi @adel

The default Description for Ecommerce products is a simple multi-line text field, but you can add a custom Rich Text field to the Products collection and use it provide a more detailed description of your products.

Please let me know if you have additional questions!

Thanks for the tip Maciej. I added the Rich Text field to the Products template. How do I connect it to the description field. The inner text settings dropdown is not allowing me to connect to the description field.

Hi @adel

default Description field that comes with Products is a plain text field, so it won’t work with the Rich Text Block on the canvas. What i meant is that you could add a custom field of type Rich text to your Products, and then you’ll be able to connect it in the menu you’ve shared above.

Hope this helps :slight_smile:
