HTML in product review? Is it possible?

Recommended Posts

I have a lot of testimonials from customers who are also business owners and have their own websites and I'd like to reward them with a link, but as it is now - the html gets stripped from the reviews. (This is from my pre-OSC website)

 

I realize that leaving it on could create security problems, is there a safe way of doing it? Maybe submit for approval?

 

Or maybe there is a contribution that addresses it and I couldn't find it?

Could it be made independent from products?

It could also be a completely separate entity - like another box.

Thank you!

The first one would be perfect if it addressed the html input - I may write the author. If I dream a bit - I could even imagine a possibility of the reviewer to have an opportunity to add their picture...an audio or video clip...

 

The second one is a completely different animal.

If u also added FCKeditor for Product Descriptions etc http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/2900 you could change the text area to fck edit area, I've not checked if there would be any issues at client side.

 

I posted the links as u said u wanted to add links & thats an easy way to do it.

It is my understanding Oscommerce does not allow insertion of html formatting in client parts. This is because of security reasons. If you allow "outsiders" to add their own information such as pictures, videos, they will be able to insert simple viruses, trojans and back doors. Viruses will not hack your site but they can/will hack customers/visitors to your site.

 

Just my .02 cents

You may have top update your installer as they changed the name (dropped the "F" in front) and it's version 3.0 now.
