Short Description and Long Description Duplicating

Solved

Hi guys, 

 

So I'm working on a custom-theme I did not develop. I recently encountered a problem that I'm not quite sure how to tackle exactly.

What is happening is I have a short product description, and a long product description, which is great. The problem is, the short description is just as long as the regular one, so it appears they are just duplicated... 

I haven't had any luck except maybe just hiding the short description with display:none 

I've attached a screenshot to show what I mean.

Live site is: https://www.sourcecaps.ca/

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Thanks for post.

1. Go to Online Store->Theme->Edit code
2. Asset->/style.min.css->paste below code at the bottom of the file.

.Shopify-product-details__short-description p.p_des_ex {
    display: none;
}

Hi @KetanKumar ,

 

Thanks for answering, do you know of a solution how I could possibly get the short description to show only so much? like a character limit? after the character limit it would post in the full description at the bottom? 

 

I hope that makes sense, thanks.

It looks like it already has a limit in place: https://www.dropbox.com/s/je85h4s5qj7hjxk/Screenshot%202020-06-23%2014.59.02.png?dl=0

 

Okay, would I add this in CSS as well?

 

Thanks.
