Display product details with the (P) Description element

In this article, you will learn about the (P) Description element and how to use it to best showcase your product information.

About the (P) Description element

The (P) Description is a child element of the Product module, designed to show the description of a particular product on your page. The description should be previously set up in the Shopify admin following this article.


To show the description when designing with GemPages, please follow these steps:

Step 1: From the GemPages dashboard, open your preferred template to edit. You can quickly find the (P) Description element on the left sidebar of the Editor, under the Product section. 

Step 2: As a child element, the (P) Description element should be located in a Product Module to work correctly. Drag & drop the Product Module, then nest the (P) Description element inside if your page doesn't have them.



Click on the element to view its configurations in the left sidebar, including Settings and Design tabs.
