Rob. The text you are talking about I assume are the attributes as shown in the tutorials?

If you are not that familiar with HTML, one trick is to add the text (such as title) you are talking about into the WYSIWYG editor and the look for it in the HTML.

For example, if you need to know where to put the title attribute, enter TITLETITLE in the WYSIWYG editor where the title would go, then switch to the HTML and look for the TITLETITLE in the HTML. Replace the TITLETITLE with the title attribute as shown in the tutorials. Do the same for any other attributes you want to add to your template and that should give you a simple way to find the place where to place those attributes in your template HTML.

Using a repetitive upper case placeholder like TITLETITLE or BULLET1BULLET usually stands out nicely in HTML making it easy to find.

Hope this made sense.


You have to start with a plan to know what you will be deviating from.

Hi Rob,

Richard’s suggest is a good one, if you go through the raw template and replace any of the info that you want to be dynamic with the CAPS version, then when you paste in the template into M2E, you can find the right keyword and replace it accordingly.

See these tutorials on listings templates as they’ll get you on the right lines quickly as we start with a basic listing template.
