PowerStore4 Product Issues

I am running into some issues with the Product Categories & Product Descriptions.

Categories:
I have set up multiple categories and sub categories for the products (i.e. MEN,WOMEN,CHILDREN). I had set up a product (Daydreamer Logo | Zip Hood) to be in the MEN category but then realized it needed to be in the WOMEN category. I changed it in the Store Manager and now it shows up in both places on the website. This happened on another product and in order to fix it I had to erase the product completely and recreate it.

URLs:
Daydreamer Logo | Zip Hood is still here (but should NOT be): products_results.php?Search=1&ProductCategoryID[]=44

Daydreamer Logo | Zip Hood is here as well (this is where it should be): products_results.php?Search=1&ProductCategoryID[]=22


Product Descriptions:
In the product descriptions area of the Store Manager when I first navigate to the page the Short Description and Long Description areas are blank, even though there should be info there. In order to show what is there I have to click the Source button. It then displays the source code. If I click the Source button again it will then display the info in design mode, as it should when first navigated to. The Cart Description area at the top displays fine.

similar problem

I am having a similar problem with powerstore 3. If i put a <li> list into the source side of the long description box and click update it displays as intended. When i click on update a second time and then exit with making NO changes, the alignment of the <li> list is different. Not sure why this is happening but seems like the rendering of the code is causing it to change when it is saved a 2nd time.

the code i am placing in there is:

<ul>
<li><h3><b>Features</b></h3></li>
<ul>
<li>Patented Shallow Woofer System (SWS)</li>
<li>Direct Fit for most stock woofers to get better bass in a small space!</li>
<li>Warranty: 1 Year Manufacturer</li>
</ul>

<li><h3><b>Specifications</b></h3></li>
<ul>
<li>Peak Power: 2000 Watts</li>
<li>RMS Power: 1200 Watts</li>
<li>Voice Coils: 2 (4 Ohms Each)</li>
<li>Xmax: 3.5" (88.9 MM) Peak to Peak</li>
<li>Warranty: 1 Year Manufacturer</li>
<a href="javascript:toggleLayer('advSpecs');" title="Advanced Specifications">
<li>Click for Advanced Specifications</li>
</a>
<div id="advSpecs">
<i>
<li>Revc:* 3.500</li>
<li>Fo:* 30.394 HZ</li>
<li>Sd:* 22.000 msqM</li>
<li>BL:* 6.210</li>
<li>Qms:* 3.987</li>
<li>Qes:* 0.804</li>
<li>Qts:* 0.669</li>
<li>SPLo:* 86.7 DB</li>
<li>Vas:* 27.830 Ltr.</li>
</i>
</div>
</ul>
</ul>

and what changes is after 2nd save the "click for advanced specifications" line is indented as well as the lines that are displayed when clicked.

should i start a separate thread or is this good?

ok, found out that i dont have to click the update button to make it throuw the incorrect layout change. All i have to do is toggle to design and then back to source and then back (done in the long des. box in the admin panel)

how do i fix this?

it is not valid HTML to enclose an li tag in an anchor tag:

<a href="javascript:toggleLayer('advSpecs');" title="Advanced Specifications">
<li>Click for Advanced Specifications</li>
</a>


instead, the anchor tag needs to be nested inside the LI tag:


<li><a href="javascript:toggleLayer('advSpecs');" title="Advanced Specifications">Click for Advanced Specifications</a></li>
