I am getting some special characters appended in the description. How do I get rid of it ?
Please make sure the opening and closing CDATA tags are present. If the closing tags are missing, you may see special characters.
Lets say, I listed an item-110100291005 in sandbox which has " ]]" appended at the end of the description.
To resolve this issue, this is what you can do.
1. Execute a GetItem api call and see the response. In this case for item-110100291005, in the GetItem api response you will see :
<Description>2 Secure zipped compartments<br/>Belt loop attached<br/>Detachable shoulder strap<br/>Made from water resistant Neopropene The Travel Pod is ideal for a camera, MP3 player, sunglasses and more. The travel pod has two secure zipped compartments allowing you to store a range of items in the pouch. The travel pod comes with a belt loop and a detachable shoulder strap. The travel pod is made of high quality and water resistant Neopropene and is available in black. ]]</Description>
2. Note the special characters added at the end of the Description " ]]" .
You will have to remove these characters from the description to get rid of "]]".
