I got the previous problem to work but I've run into an issue on the shopping cart that is blowing my mind. What is happening is that if I create a session variable to display the color, size, etc when I create an if else statement the variable is recognized as 0. Which makes the if else statement not work properly. It should display Color: Green etc. Only if there is a value that is not 0 or empty. I'm sending the shopping cart page the code in question starts at line 298.
You can add an item to the shopping cart to see it run.
