Last week I was speaking to a Magento user, and he said he wanted to not only have the Product Title listed in the Magento Checkout, but also the short Product Description there.  Most people would perhaps not have the neccessity to do so, however, for those that do want it done, there is a solution about.

If you go into FTP and navigate to /app/design/frontend/default/default/template/checkout/cart/item/default.phtml, you simply need to add the following around Line 27…

            $custom = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load($_item->getProductId());
            echo $custom->getShortDescription(); 

This will successfully echo the short description for each product purchased – job done.
