Shopping cart not clearing after checkout

Shopping cart not clearing after checkout

When the checkout process is complete and the emails have all been sent, the next person trying to place an order finds all the products from the previous order still in the shopping cart. It doesn't matter if this is the same customer placing an additional order or someone new visiting the site. There is no site login.

What additional code do I need to add to get the cart to clear? Do I add it to the checkout_success page?

Ideally, the trigger here would be a return to the index page or leaving the site.

I know this is a simple task, but being so new to PHP it is still beyond me. I checked out the previous thread from pmait97856, but it was not clear to me what to do.

Thanks for your help.
