Hi Danno, I totally agree....I am NOT using any info from the store...this is the html from the desciption/edit box inside of the listing...the code is showing up, I didnt put it there aslo it didnt post all of the html either. The original html was from the actual template created in Auctiva. Did I click in the wrong area? Like I stated I copy/pasted at the top left corner of inside the ebay description/edit box under revise your listing, no other alterations were done. I wonder if it is pulling code from the listing frame/as it matches my store header?? When I post to practiceboard what you see is not what I see in ebay. Is there another way ...perhaps to alter the template you created earlier & add the background text to it?
