Quick View Lightbox Add to Cart Button + Quantity Not Working

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 


Seeing some funky behavior on my "Quick View" Light box. 
Essentially, I have links in my product description which is causing the quantity and add to cart button go to those links vs. behave correctly. Any help you can provide would be MUCH appreciated b/c I have over 200 products with links in the description so I can't feasibly go and remove all the links.

See the tip about issues with Quick View text formatting. SS basically says hey we know your text is screwed up. So instead of us making it work, change your text. Nice SS.

Here is another thing I observed. Quick View does not render all the product detail. It tries to ellipses the description. Apparently they just take so many characters. And apparently will cut at inappropriate places causing spurious results.

I was able to reproduce the fouled up DOM on my test site using the description from the product detail page you showed. It looks like various tags aren't being closed properly and so the DOM goes wild.

I don't think there is any help we can provide in the way of a fix. This is a job for SS.

You could turn off the excerpt or write enough plain text at the beginning of the description to work around the issue.

Wait wait! Scratch just adding some text to pad it out. SS couldn't even handle ellipses on the following so the issue seems more fundamental.



Ah but it can handle some lorem ipsum.

Thanks @creedon

Given the issues, I'm going to remove the quick view but I'll share a vid on this thread of me walking through the problem with some things I've tried incase anyone comes back to it.
