Topic: Update to Custom HTML in Product Descriptions
Liz Posted: Tuesday, March 1, 2016 6:19:47 PM
Hi Designers,

With our new Collections feature in full swing, we’re looking to make even more incremental improvements for the best experience on Zazzle for both our Designers and our customers.

To fully show off the functionality of displaying Collections on our product pages and make our products pages as attractive as possible to customers, we will be moving forward with a small update to product descriptions such that HTML will no longer be displayed in this field. If you have used custom HTML in your products’ descriptions, here is what you can expect to see:

Starting approximately Friday, March 4, HTML will not be accepted in the description field for any new products being published going forward. Beginning approximately Wednesday, March 23, existing HTML in product descriptions will be removed from the site. Rest assured that any initial text-only paragraph will remain in your product descriptions, with only HTML removed.

If you have products which currently use HTML in their descriptions, we suggest that you review these products to save any information you may wish to keep related to the HTML used for your own reference, and/or remove this HTML yourself to ensure that your product descriptions will display exactly how you would like them after this update.

We also highly recommend that you take full advantage of our feature that displays your Collections on product pages! Take a look at our blog post here to learn more about how to make sure that your Collection of related products appears on your product pages to show off other products from your store that your customers would be most interested in.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated as me move forward with this small improvement for our product pages.

Thanks as always for designing with Zazzle!

Your Friends at Zazzle
