[resolved] Adding a hyperlink in "description" in product box (10 posts)

    It seems any time my description has a hyperlink, the box breaks and none of the content displays. Is there any way to place a hyperlink in the description part of the product box without it breaking.

    Hello nahbois, adding a hyperlink to the description is not controlled by the plugin.

    You might have a plugin or theme conflict.

    Can you provide a link to the product page so that we can check.

    Kind regards

    Right now there is no hyperlink in the description as it causes the description to appear blank.

    Here is a link to the page where I am trying to place a hyperlink into the product box description:

    http://sweetspotvoiceovercoaching.com/wordpress/classes/

    Thanks for looking at this.

    Hi nahbois, thank you for your link.

    It would be great if you could add the hyperlink code to the description of one item so that we could investigate it further or maybe create a test page for us to check.

    If you can't can you share with us an example of the hyperlink code you added which caused the issue?

    Kind regards

    Sure thing...

    Here is how the page displays
    http://sweetspotvoiceovercoaching.com/wordpress/test-hyperlink/

    Here is my code:

    [creativ_columns structure="33|33|33"][creativ_col position="a"]
    
    [wp_cart_display_product name="Name of Seminar" price="35.00" thumbnail="http://sweetspotvoiceovercoaching.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/class61.png" description="THIS IS A TEST <a href="mailto:nahbois@gmail.com">email</a>."]
    
    [/creativ_col][creativ_col position="b"]
    [wp_cart_display_product name="The Webinar Name" price="25.00" thumbnail="http://sweetspotvoiceovercoaching.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/class4.png" description="THIS IS ALSO A TEST <a href="http://wordpress.org/support/topic/adding-a-hyperlink-in-description-in-product-box?replies=4">LINK TEST</a>"]
    
    [/creativ_col][creativ_col position="c"]
    
    [/creativ_col][/creativ_columns]

    Thanks again!

    Hi can you try something just to see if it works. Can you add the hyperlink outside the square brackets for example.

    [wp_cart_display_product name="The Webinar Name" price="25.00" thumbnail="http://sweetspotvoiceovercoaching.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/class4.png" description="THIS IS ALSO A TEST"]

    LINK TEST

    What plugin are you using to create the columns?

    Kind regards

    I have actually already done that and the link will work outside the product display box shortcode while inside the column shortcode.

    the plugin I am using for the columns is creativplugins
    http://pixelatedminds.com/plugins

    Here is a sample test for you

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi nahbois, can you try to add the plugin code and the hyperlink just I mentioned above without adding the column shortcode?

    Thank you

    Hi nahbois, there must be a conflict between the two plugins.

    Try to disable creativplugins plugin and only run Simple Paypal Shopping Cart plugin and try again?

    Kind regards
