Hi David,

how can I add a custom description to a product that is mapped by unique id (ean)?

Best regards,

You could create a new config file config.descriptions.php with your custom descriptions in the format $config_descriptions["EAN"] = "Description"; for example:

  $config_descriptions["123456789012"] = "Blue Widget";
  $config_descriptions["567890123456"] = "Green Widget";

Then edit includes/admin.php and at the very top of the script just after the opening PHP tag add:


Then look for the following code at line 344:

    if (!$importRecord["merchant"]) return;

...and REPLACE with:

    if (!$importRecord["merchant"]) return;
    global $config_descriptions;
    if (isset($config_descriptions[$importRecord["ean"]]))
      $importRecord["description"] = $config_descriptions[$importRecord["ean"]];
