-- HikaShop version -- : 3.5.1
-- Joomla version -- : 3.8.11
-- PHP version -- : 7.2

I have been asked now by several clients to be able to put some HTML, like <br>,in the PRODUCT NAME.
The reason for this is fairly obvious for long product names:

How it is showing now on the front end:

How to Mix Colours When Painting with Artist Gerda
Smit

How it would be more appropriate to show by using a <br> in the name:
How to Mix Colours When Painting
with Artist Gerda Smit

RocketTheme does this by default for the Titles on all of their plug-ins. Can add css classes too. It really helps make the site a lot more professional looking.

Thank you.

Hello,

Since product names can be displayed elsewhere than an HTML page, that other fields can be relied on that name ; no we won't allow that.

OK, I understand that.

How about a separate Product Name field that allows basic HTML for displaying on the Category and Product Grid/List only?

This would fix a lot of visual issues with long product names.

Hello,

You're free to create product custom fields and customize your views accordingly to your needs.

I have created a product custom field alright and have modified the correct view.

However, adding a <br> is working correctly in the product display, but not in the Products Listing.
The <br> is being ignored. It is there in the page html though.

OK, I did a hack to fix the issue.
Changed the data field to WYSIWYG instead of Text.
Added hard <p> breaks instead of <br> then changed the line-height to compensate.

This works most of the time, but screws up when screen size is portrait for pad, but definitely a better look than the original wrap-around text.

The <br> approach would work in all cases, but I can't get it to work.

Hello,

You might want to see the advanced options for the fields, like the "input filtering" one.

INPUT FILTERING was off.
The <br> was present on both pages, so HTML was not being filtered out.

Hi,

Then, it means that you must have had some CSS either in the template, a module, or some custom CSS, which would hide the br tags ( with a display:none; ).

Your are correct! AND it is the HikaShop style_default.css!!!

.hikashop_subcontainer br {
    display: none;
}

I changed the 'none' to 'block' and it is now working!

Thanks! The product listing is looking great now.
