Through the cafepress webite, my shop has descriptions under the section images.  But through CPshop, those descriptions don't show.   Is there any way to do this?

Actually, I was just wondering the same thing...without that you really only have the description next to each individual product. Kinda wish there was a way to pull up a description so it would show under each thumbnail or something.

I'd like to know about this, too. I've spent a lot of time writing section and product descriptions, but they aren't very useful for drawing people into the shop if they only show up AFTER people have reached the individual product pages.  I'm still getting stickier traffic through my CafePress storefront than though my custom shop, and I think the main reason for that is the lack of product descriptions in CPShop.  Is there a way to make them show on the section thumbs?

It's already in Cpshop.  Just use the <[teaser]> tag.

Only works for sections though and not products.  Would be awesome if it worked for products too.

Cool!  Now, how do I use the <[teaser]> tag?  I don't have a clue!

Place it somewhere in the Store Thumbnail Grid Layout.

Thanks for the simple solution Jellyfish!  

Never tought I'd be thanking a Dead Jellyfish.  

That inspires another question:  is there a complete list of tags that we can use in our templates?   I don't remember ever seeing one.

Yeah, that list is old though.  Doesn't include the teaser tag.

Appears that list is also missing the <[costconvert]> tag.

I've added those two missing tags to the list, and stickied the post.

That's great!  Thanks Marty.  I know for myself, I discovered those two tags a very long time after installing the script, and when I discovered them I was really disappointed that I hadn't known about them earlier.

Now that I've used the <[teaser]> tag, I have a new problem.  
In my cpShop store, http://www.caninecasual.com the sections appear to be centered in the cells, with descriptions of varying lengths forcing the the section thumbs out of horizontal alignment.
In the CafePress version, http://www.cafepress.com/caninecasual ,the section thumbs line up just fine. I'm guessing that there's a place in the control panel where I can change the alignment, but I've changed the alignment values to 'top' in the Store Thumbnail Grid Layout section, with no result. Anybody know how to change this?

Add valign="top" to the first <td align=center> tag in your store cell template.
