Magento amazon theme short description problem


Magento amazon theme short description problem

Hi folks

I need some help fixing some php code for the small description in magento.
We use the Amazon theme from cmsmart.

The problem is when using html code like (with WYSIWYG Editor or manually coding)


<table border="0"><tbody>

the code interferes with the theme code on the frontend of product page and gets all tangling up.

Here are some images on how it can looks.


This is a images of how we want it to look.

This is the php code for the theme frontend.


<?php if ($tmpHtml = $this->getChildHtml('block_product_primary_bottom')): ?>

                <div class="block_product_primary_bottom"><?php echo $tmpHtml; ?></div>

            <?php endif; ?>
            <?php if ($_product->getShortDescription()):?>
                <div class="short-description"> <!--<h2>This is the short-description</h2>-->
            <?php $des = $_helper->productAttribute($_product, nl2br($_product->getShortDescription()), 'short_description');?>
                <div class="std">
            <?php if(strlen($des) > 1800) {
                echo substr($des,0,1800).'...</html>';
                } else {
                    echo $des; } ?>
            <?php endif;?>

If someone can give me some tips on how to make the short description code to not brake the theme front end code?

I really appreciate it.

You need to make sure that all your tags have closing tags and they are correctly nested.
