Whilst using magento 1.8.1 i had a custom made HTML product description template set up which produced the following rendering on ebay:
I upgraded to 184.108.40.206 and noticed that the HTML table did not display correctly in ebay ie the HTML table background colours had disappeared. I created a new HTML table in mozilla kompozer. The komposer preview displayed as follows:
I copied the HTML code from kompozer and put it into the magento editor. The magneto editor did not display the padding in the tables ie see image below:
And neither did the table padding or text alignment display correctly on ebay. See image below:
I have tried tried opening the HTML file created in kompozer directly with a browser and it displays OK.
Does anyone know why the magento editor is not displaying the HTML table properties correctly? How can i get the HTML table to display correctly on ebay?
Below is a link to a live page:
The code will probably be messy as it was done with a WYSIWYG editor, however the last template was also done by a WYSIWYG editor (an old version of Dreamweaver) and it displayed as expected with table padding and correct text alignment within the table. Perhaps it would be better to do the table design in Dreamweaver.
Hi David, hope you’re well.
Looking at your listing link you provided and the screenshots from your first post I can see the issue i think.
Basically on eBay the html table has no padding/margins in the inline css, this is probably being stripped from the html when using the WYSIWYG editor within magento, personally I never use this as it isn’t great at all. I would recommend adding a CSS id to your table and adding some css to your m2epro listing template to correct the padding/margin issues you are seeing.
