20.1. What if I don't want to use a template for my listings?

On SSB, a "template" is a framework that surrounds your listing description and contains variables to help our program interpret its contents. If our system doesn't detect an SSB template in your listing, you may not be able to edit your listing description via SSB.

Different templates have different appearances, and while the size, font, and color of description text can be changed when editing your listing, not everyone wants additional graphics.

PLAIN TEMPLATES:

If all you want is a template that functions, consider using one of the following templates, which can be found in our Template Gallery using the keyword "plain":

Blank - Only Text & Photos: No graphics. No section headings. Large text. (Template Options: Font, Text Color, Background Color.)

Totally Plain: No graphics. Text-based section headings. 14px text. (No Template Options.)

Plain & Simple: No graphics. Text-based section headings. Medium text. (Template Options: Color Scheme.)

Import Listing: Only graphics are section headings. 14px text. (Template Options: Description Graphic.)


If you're not satisfied with the template you've selected, you can always change the template while revising your listing via SSB.

Special Mention:

Make It Your Own (MIYO) Templates: Background graphics only if added. Text-based section headings. Medium text. (Template Options: MANY!)
