  2. You have to open product.tpl file with File Manager in the CPanel or with the editor like a Notepad++ or Dreamviewer on your computer.

  3. First of all we have to save original file in order to make a back-up in case of need to restore default settings. Right-click and select Download button.

    After such step we can start editing. Right-click the file and select Code Edit item:


  4. Find location where you would like to paste it. In our case we will locate it after price area. Copy this part of code and paste it into the area where you would like to see short description on the product page.

    {if $product->description_short || $packItems|@count > 0}
             <div id="short_description_block">
          {if $product->description_short}
             <div id="short_description_content" class="rte align_justify"> {$product->description_short} </div>


  5. Save changes and upload the file to the following directory: themes/themeXXX. Notice that you have to allow overwriting in order to save changes in case you are uploading the file again.
