Developer News: Domain Split on the eBay View Item Page

eBay has released details of how item description HTML will be segregated from the rest of the site, a change announced at the eBay Developer Conference in June this year.

As part of the new View Item page release, eBay will host the user-generated description on a different domain and load it into an IFrame for display on the page. Scripts will only be allowed to modify and control the item description and the area it occupies.

The change may affect listing enhancements that are not tested and modified as necessary before the change, and could cause enhancements to fail if they try to access the area outside the item description .

eBay have released detailed requirements to make sure content appears as expected inside the IFrame.
