Product Descriptions

You can edit the description, meta description, URL and additional properties of a product in the 'Catalog -> Product descriptions' option of the Sana Commerce backoffice. The description as well as titles and URL can be multi-lingual. The core product data like title, price and visibility are all managed in the database depending on your provider.
The catalog manager in the Sana Commerce backoffice provides an HTML editor for the better text enrichment. By default the Sana Commerce backoffice main description is shown in the webshop.  
Open 'Product descriptions' in the 'Catalog' module of the Sana Commerce backoffice. You can search for an item by the item number and title:

Page title If a page title is specified it will override the title of the product at the top of the product details page. In the products catalog the product title shown in the 'Title' field will be still used.
Main description The description of a product. Using image and document managers you can add images or link any other files to product description.
Meta title Meta title is shown in the Web browser on a tab of the opened page. If the 'Meta title' field is empty, the title of the opened page and the name of the webshop set in the general settings will be shown on the tab of the Web browser. If you enter a meta title, you can also use the [SHOPNAME] replacement tag. This tag will be automatically replaced with the shop name set in the backoffice general settings.
Meta title and meta description should include keywords relevant to the content of a page. They are read by the search engines but are not displayed on the page. Meta title and meta description are important factors for a successful search engine optimization of your webshop.
