My order status in the order summary taple is not being set to pending so I may have missed a step.
Update: added "Pending" to the status field using the store summary behavior. Now the order confirmation page won't appear for the user (blank white page, no error message) but the summary order is being inserted. Currently have details behavior set to button trigger to prevent connection error. Using DW CS3, Win7. Uninstalled and reinstalled eCart extension and deleted DW cache file.
