Reply to "Using custom template within the listing template"

Hi limaje62!

Welcome to the forum!

The Auctiva Lister page doesn't allow you to leave the Item Description field blank, but there are different ways you can approach this.

One way, in your custom template, as long as you don't include the template tag "[DESCRIPTION]", then whatever you put in the Item Description field of the Auctiva Lister page will not actually be included in your template or listing.

Another thing you could do if your description is the same for all items you are selling is to use our Profiles feature. You can create an Item Details Profile that has the desired description and template selected, and load that information into your listing with just a few clicks. You would just need to remove the description from the template and replace it with the [DESCRIPTION] tag. And then, in the "Item Description" field, you would enter your description.

You can find out more information about our profiles at
