Need help with some code.

I have been practicing with my WordPress site, and I want to know how to put a short description below the products.

I'm using WooCommerce and I'm 1/2 way.

I have the descriptions under the products, but I want to take only 4 of the descriptions, instead of all of them to be below the product.

What code can I use to do this?

4 Answers

I'm using:

"<?php echo apply_filters( 'woocommerce_short_description', $post->post_excerpt ); ?>"

Is there nothing I need to change in this code?

Hi, I'm not sure what you mean by you have 4 descriptions and you only want 1.

Sorry, Zac. I should had been a little more specific.

I did a dummy product with a list of numbers that go from 1-8

When I wrote the post_excerpt code, all of the numbers were outside of the products, as it should be.

But I want to know if there's a code that would allow me to only make 4 out of the 8.

Right now, I have it as: -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 -7 -8

Want a want is a code that would allow me to keep the 1-8 inside the product, but only see the 1-4 below the product

As you can see, I'm not the best explaining lol.

Hopefully, you can understand what I tried to say
