Hi all once again,

I try it once again, because I want to have this issue solved.

After checking another 3 days all my multishop configurations, I can´t find the reason why the products short description is not displayed. Neither on products list view, nor on products details view. Though it is inserted in products edit panel.

It´s not displayed on with the default, not with default_v2 and also not on tab.php layout script.

Am I the only one having this problem? I am nearly getting desperate about that.

Could it be the reason, that the "simple xml module" is not enabled like recommended in documentation?

But I do not know where to enable it. Chequed the installtool but could not find anything like that.

You can change the PRODUCTS_LISTING_TYPE to "grid_with_detail_button".

Otherwise create your own one:

To create a custom listing page (with short description), copy the file scripts/front_pages/includes/products_listing/grid.php to fileadmin and update your settings (PRODUCTS_LISTING_TYPE) to the relative path (ie fileadmin/myfolder/grid_with_description).

In the PHP script use the following variable to display the short description:
