Hi there, I am just in the process of making my website and am sorting out the online store, is there a way of having the description displayed of the product when you click the photo of it or the description rather than having a big long description all over the page ?... as my descriptions of my products (generators and air compressors) are quite long and technical, so even doing one product the description takes up the entire page

Yes, I can see what you are saying about a description taking up an entire page if it is quite long. I would say that one thing you could do is create separate pages on your site with the descriptions of the products, and then in the description area of the Product (Widget) add a link to the page with the description on it. You could say something such as: "For more information on this product please click here." which would then take the person to the other page. Here is a link with more information on creating links: Creating links.

You would need to make sure that when you create the product description pages that you choose to not have them in the main navigation as this would really clutter the area up.

Hope that helps!

I have a background as a purchasing manager in manufacturing so I am used to looking for products that need great detail so I can decide if it is what I require or not.What many companies do is have a basic description of a product and then right after they have PDF file with all the detailed information.This would be easier for you and customers would have great detail if needed and even down load the file for reference.
