Category Description - Phoenix

Recommended Posts

On my Category page(s), I include a lot of information. Text, pictures, links, etc. Several things I have noticed:

1) The Category Description is HTML text. But, there are limits to what HTML code one can include. I *used* to be able to use a <br/> to add a line feed, but it doesn't work now in Phoenix. Does anyone know how to add a line feed in Phoenix?

I have the Category Images add-on installed, which shows the Categories as small boxes on the home (index.php) page. While I was able to get some page formatting (ie: line breaks) of the Category Description by wrapping blocks of text in <div></div>'s and using <div class="clearfix">, it completely messed up the home page! So, this is not an option.

2) To display an image in the Category Description, I must include the actual image dimensions (width="xxx" height="xxx") (or some multiple of the actual image dimensions), otherwise the image is scaled to fit (ie: it is stretched to fill the width). Also, I must include class="img-fluid" in order for the image to be responsive (in BS3, it used to be class="img-responsive").

3) While it should be no surprise, one can not include PHP code in the Category Description.

TIA

@ArtcoInc For Category Description instead of <br/>, we wrapped each line in a div which seems to work - yes, the whole img-fluid is weird - we limited upper size with user.css .img-fluid {max-width: 200px; max-height: 200px;} which seems to work - cornishhoney.co.uk

Not sure I fully understand your problem but just added 3 <br/> to the first cat and worked fine, giving 3 lines.

Assuming talking about this:

html_cat.jpg.c54d6a03184c61599c47b3295b60b1a2.jpg

HTML (any, there is no limit)...works well.  That display is:

<p>Fruit contains <b>many</b> nutrients and vitamins essential to health.  Eating fruit is an essential part of a healthy balanced diet.</p>

<dl class="row">
  <dt class="col-sm-3">Description lists</dt>
  <dd class="col-sm-9">A description list is perfect for defining terms.</dd>

  <dt class="col-sm-3">Euismod</dt>
  <dd class="col-sm-9">
    <p>Vestibulum id ligula porta felis euismod semper eget lacinia odio sem nec elit.</p>
    <p>Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus.</p>
  </dd>
</dl>

<div class="w-100"></div>

<img src="images/store_logo.png" class="img-thumbnail" width="300"><br><br>
