hi , i am using an app which automaticly import all the items i need from my supplier , but the problem is the items title in my supplier website is too long and the app puplishe it in my store too long , and by looking at it , it makes you feel uncomfortable with the store !!
any idea how to make the titles shorter ? or make it as this style : example : product titl........ ''first to words and then dots....'' ?
Alex here, from the Shopify team.
If you need to update all your product titles as once and you have more than 50 products, the most efficient way to accomplish this would be to export your products via CSV File, which would create a copy of your products' data into a spread sheet layout. Then you could edit your product titles in a program like Excel or Google Numbers, and then import your updated CSV File back into your Shopify Admin.
Rewriting your product titles is still something you'd need to accomplish manually, but it's unlikely there is a program out there that can tackle this task without requiring you to go through and correct program errors after the fact.
Keep in mind that the way in which your titles are being cut off might depend on the theme you're using. If you're open to exploring other theme layouts, you can always check out the Theme Store for other options. But with this being said, if your product titles are exceptionally long, the best course of action is to shorten them for a better customer experience. :)
Hi Alex Roo,
I have about 8000 products and I followed your steps but once I upload there were 3 errors:
The title was missing even though it was there.
File Was too heavy, hight than 20mb (But that was what I extracted, shouldn't Shopify extract only what they can import again?)
What do you reckon should I do to fix that ?
