    ok

    The main image tag hasnt got a target=”blank” on it, this need fixing

    also all the product thumbnails are a href html tags and are being flagged as external links by ebays bot

    these need to IMG SRC html tags as these are allowed by ebay

    This is critical as the offending listings will be removed by ebay

  • Hello albertramsbottom.

    This is wrong because the <a href="https://codex.wordpress.org/product_main_image">product_main_image</a> shortcode only produces the <img /> tag that points to the main product image – it is not a link to the target attribute is not valid here. You can create your own <a> element using the <a href="https://codex.wordpress.org/product_main_image_url">product_main_image_url</a> shortcode with the proper target attribute like so:

    <a href="<a href="https://codex.wordpress.org/product_main_image_url">product_main_image_url</a>" target="_blank"><a href="https://codex.wordpress.org/product_main_image">product_main_image</a></a>
    

    As for the thumbnails, this is how we display thumbnails using our default thumbnails_nojs.php template:

    <a href="<?php echo $image_url ?>" target="_blank">
       <img class="wpl_thumb thumb_<?php echo $i+1 ?>" src="<?php echo $image_url ?>" alt="..." />
    </a>

    As you can see, there’s a target attribute in the <a> element so I’m not sure what you are worried about. I think we need you to create a ticket on our site so we could get sample listings from you/admin login credentials/dashboard URL, and then examine them for you.

    Kind regards,

    sorry folks but http://www.isdntek.com/ebaytools/ActiveContentEditor.htm

    Is still flagging 263 of my listings as non compliant with ebays new link requirements, this figure is exactly the figure outlined on my seller hub page

    Here is a screenshot of the code in my listing

    With the orrange hightlight the href links and the yellow flagged non ssl links. My whole site is forced https

    cheers

    Hello albertramsbottom.

    Well it looks like you are serving the images using http URLs, right? I think that’s what eBay’s complaining about. The target attribute you were worried about got sorted out it seems.

    Could you please supply us with a sample eBay Item ID and the eBay marketplace that we can run on isdntek.com?

    Kind regards,
    John
