Support » Plugin: Amazon Product in a Post Plugin » Product in a post plug-in: Amazon-Description does not disappear

  • Resolved jaymesbond


    Hi to all,

    I’m just trying to post an Amazon product and want to write an own description instead of using the Amazon product description. Therefore I made a check at: Post Text becomes Description – Post text will become part of the Product layout. But if you look on the post there will be first the product description and after that my own description. Has anybody got an idea what I’m doing wrong?
    Greetings, Jochen

    You are not doing anything wrong.
    If you read the FAQs, the meta box method (which you are using), currently does not have an option to get rid of the amazon description. We hope to have a new version out soon that will fix that, but until then, you will have to use the shortcode method to get the functionality you want OR you could just hide the amazon description with a style.

    If you want to just hide it, add the following to your styte.css or the the plugin styles (in the options):

    .amazon-description {display:none;}

    That should hide the amazon version for you.
    Warm regards,

    Thanks a lot! Actually it worked with the style.css but not with pip-option. However now my text is no longer going around the picture but the picture-border seems to be the border for the text. Could you please have a look at it again? If I like to get rid of the amazon title and the line below, does it work in the same way? Thanks a lot for helping me!

    Ps: i have tried the shortcode Version too but it did not work as i had to choose between a picturesize of small or medium. Small was to small and Medium was too big. My theme seems to take a picturesize in between.

    I think if you use the shortcode method you will have an easier time of styling the look.

    The current way you are adding the product is very limited, so there is not much you can do about the layout.

    I would suggest using the shortcode with the medium image and then use CSS to make a max-width for your theme that works well.
