change description to short description field

Currently this module uses the "Description" field of the product information. Some of my products have a very long description and it doesn’t fit in the slideshow.

My Question:

How do i change it so that the slideshow module shows the info from the "Short Description" field of the product information?

Dear jetproductions!

Here is the solution to resolve this issue:

Please open the file:
\app\design\frontend\default\jm_rasitetemplate\jo omlart\jmslideshow\list_products.phtml

and try to find the following code:

PHP Code:

<?php echo nl2br($_product->getDescription()) ?>

and replace:

PHP Code:

  <?php echo nl2br($_product->getShortDescription()) ?>

or you would limit characters displayed:
You ‘ll replace by :

PHP Code:

<?php echo substr(nl2br($_product->getShortDescription()), 060).'...';?>

GOod luck
