My project is to create a way to have a standard template for the descriptions of each item. The difference is the way it fills the information in.
This is my product (*attribute*) and it is made of (*attribute*). We offer this product every day. End of example.
Basically, the text would be the same for each product EXCEPT the attribute would be pulled from the product data. This way we can have a team focus on filling the attributes in and not each and every auction/listing.
After the listing is finished we want to send the items to eBay using our M2E pro extension.
I need this to work on my other websites as well. If there is an easy way to add the code to the other sites it would be great.

I attached an image to clarify what the description would look like in the template.
The text between the # is a reference to the attribute. This would be filled in on the magneto front end. This would allow one basic template for the text. I would set the attributes for each product myself.

I want to start over in explaining the project to you. I will list below the steps I want to be able to use.
1: I have the Magento store set up and ready to post my products.
2: I have all the product attributes entered into the attribute set. I have entered data such as color, size, metal, bracelet, etc.
3: I have a new product I want to list.
4: I go to the Catalog, manage products page and I add new product.
5: In the product, I have the options to select the attributes for each part of the product I want to sell.
6: I set the attributes for the product.
7: Below the attributes, I have a section to add the description of the product.
8: Instead of entering all new text to make the description I will use a template that I have to quickly paste to the description section.
9: The template that I paste into the description are has code that calls certain attributes from the attribute set that I created.
My template text would look something like this:
#short_description#. This Rolex #rolex_model# has a #case_size# case size and #bracelet# bracelet with #clasp# clasp. An #color# dial with #hour_markers# markers covered by the #crystal# crystal and #bezel# bezel. There is an #movement# automatic movement. Quick-set and water-resistant. #condition1# Included in the purchase price is #includes# This Rolex has a current MSRP of $#msrp#.00
10: Everything between the hash tags is called from the attributes.
11: The result will look like this:
AUTHENTIC ROLEX IN PRISTINE CONDITION. This Rolex DateJust has a 36mm case size and Authentic Rolex Jubilee bracelet with Authentic Rolex Traditional clasp. An Authentic Rolex White dial with Arabic markers covered by the Acrylic crystal and Authentic Rolex Fluted bezel. There is an Authentic Rolex Quick-Set 3035 automatic movement. Quick-set and water-resistant. Pre-Owned and in excellent condition, we guarantee that this Rolex is in pristine condition and provide a three-year warranty that ensures complete, dependable function. Included in the purchase price is Box, Rolex books, and Watch Chest's three-year warranty. This Rolex has a current MSRP of $10900.00
12: Here is a break down of what happened with the template paragraph:
#short_description# = AUTHENTIC ROLEX IN PRISTINE CONDITION.
#rolex_model# = DateJust
#case_size# = 36mm
#bracelet# = Authentic Rolex Jubilee
#clasp# = Authentic Rolex Traditional
#color# = Authentic Rolex White
#hour_markers# = Arabic
#crystal# = Acrylic
#bezel# = Authentic Rolex Fluted
#movement# = Authentic Rolex Quick-Set 3035
#condition1# = Pre-Owned and in excellent condition, we guarantee that this Rolex is in pristine condition and provide a three-year warranty that ensures complete, dependable function.
#includes# = Box, Rolex books, and Watch Chest's three-year warranty
#msrp# = 10900
13: Above: On the left is the code that calls the attribute -- On the right is the actual attribute.
