Hi,

The best way is to modify the view and add a limitation where the product name is displayed (using "substr").

Hi,

Yes, something like:

<?php
echo substr($this->row->product_name, 0, 7); //To display 7 characters.
?>
or do that with "$this->row->product_description", depending on what you want
Be careful, in the string "$this->row->product_description" it could be html tags.

When trying to edit the product listing page

i.e

Click on a category and you see all your products in that category with add to cart button..

Which file edits this file via VIEW?

Hi,

The view to edit is depending on your configuration, if you set a display in Div with image and title displayed, then the view is "product / listing_img_title".

Right i now have five mins to implement the character limit

So we have product name listed here:

<!-- PRODUCT NAME -->
<span class="hikashop_product_name">
<?php if($this->params->get('link_to_product_page',1)){ ?>
<a href="<?php echo $link;?>">


<?php }
echo $this->row->product_name;
if($this->params->get('link_to_product_page',1)){ ?>
</a>
<?php } ?>
</span>
<!-- EO PRODUCT NAME -->

I need to insert the title limit and manufactures name at the start i.e

<?php $class = hikashop_get('class.category');
$manufacturer = $class->get($this->element->product_manufacturer_id);
echo $manufacturer->category_name; ?>

Any time i input the codes i get nothing, but it works fine on show_block???

I tried this code on my end, and it's working fine, try to add it just after the code:

<?php
echo substr($this->row->product_name, 0, 7); //To display 7 characters.
?>

Hi,

Yes I understood that you have solved the limit problem, and I was telling you to try to add the code:

<?php $class = hikashop_get('class.category');
$manufacturer = $class->get($this->element->product_manufacturer_id);
echo $manufacturer->category_name; ?> 
Before:
<?php
echo substr($this->row->product_name, 0, 7); //To display 7 characters.
?>

Because I tried the code:
<?php $class = hikashop_get('class.category');
$manufacturer = $class->get($this->element->product_manufacturer_id);
echo $manufacturer->category_name; ?> 

And it's working fine on my end. ;)

Hi,

<!-- PRODUCT NAME -->
<span class="hikashop_product_name">
<?php if($this->params->get('link_to_product_page',1)){ ?>
<a href="<?php echo $link;?>">

<?php
$categoryClass = hikashop_get('class.category');
$manufacturer = $categoryClass->get($this->row->product_manufacturer_id);
echo $manufacturer->category_name;
echo substr($this->row->product_name, 0, 30);
?>
</a>
<?php } ?>
</span>
<!-- EO PRODUCT NAME -->

PS : You can use the tag "code" for pasting your code, it would be easier to read :)

The code is the same there too:
<?php $class = hikashop_get('class.category');
$manufacturer = $class->get($this->element->product_manufacturer_id);
echo $manufacturer->category_name; ?>
