Product description limit

ayrancdayrancd Member Posts: 3
The short description is cutting the end of it, I found it in my template:

<p class="description" itemprop="description"> {{ product.description | raw }} </p>

I don't see any tag to limit it, how can I increase or remove the limit?

For example, this is my description: hello world!!!

It's showing up: hello wo

    The product Description is used to display a short summary of the product and limited to 160 characters on the front end. If want to show longer content we recommend using the Product Content field.
    We are aware of the request for longer product descriptions so I will create a ticket to add you to the list of shops requesting this feature.
    Hope this clarifies the limit.

    Hi @Joey

    The problem is that in the product page we don't have any character limiter so the user can type as many as he wants but the website doesn't show up like he typed, so if you fix the product page field it will reflect exactly how it is in the

    The reason why I don't want to use product.content is because this field accepts html and the short description doesn't.

    I created a ticket for you in regards to handling larger descriptions and also a ticket to limit the Description field. I will notify you when there is more information.

    We would also like to be added to the list of shops that need longer descriptions.
