The short product description, as shown in the product categorie and for example in the new products list, is all in one line, no returns. See, what is wrong?

Well, such is usually done in the controller/category.php File,
by use of the strip_tags Filter element:

Code: Select all

'description' => (strlen(utf8_decode(strip_tags(html_entity_decode($result['description'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'))))> 80 ? mb_substr(strip_tags(html_entity_decode($result['description'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8')), 0, mb_strrpos(mb_substr(strip_tags(html_entity_decode($result['description'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8')), 0, 55, 'UTF-8'), ' ', 0, 'UTF-8'), 'UTF-8') : strip_tags(html_entity_decode($result['description'], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'))) . ' ..',
If you remove that (strip_tags( .......... )) command, the html tag <br> should work, I assume.
Check Google, if you want to find out more about such ways of filtering HTML Tags. ;)
And if you allow someone else, to create Products, one could add hidden script code, doing
bad things to your Site ! ::)
UNTESTED, as it comes!
PS: But it's purpose is also, to avoid, creating height oversized Grid-View Windows, by putting
the description content part into one single line.
