I went ahead and created another cart page. I thought it went smoothly, but once again the SpecialInstruction session variable refuses to function. I am missing a key something for making this work.
confirm page: <?php echo((isset($_SESSION['SpecialInstruction'])?$_SESSION['SpecialInstruction']:"")); ?>
Is this correct on the confirm page?
I did not run the wizard, only replaced the cart page.
Attached are the pages.
