E Cart 5 and your Free E Commerce Database

I am used to working in ASP and this is my first attempt at a PHP and MySQL site

I have set up my MySQL database locally and on the web server and set up the connection in Dreamweaver to the products page.

I have imported the Webassist free e commerce database into the web and local databases.

I have used DataAssist to make Add / Mod / Del pages - and have then inserted my products to the table via DataAssist.

All works perfectly

I have then added the recordset to the page and put the data fields in a layout for testing. All work fine

Now I understood that this version of E Cart had a wizard to tie it into the Free E Commerce Database which you supplied.

I know I can easily add the E Cart object to the product_details page but how do I invoke the Wizard for E Cart 5 please to ensure it logs into the e commerce mysql database as it should. I just dont want to mess it up at this stage

Hope you can help

John

On the detail page, you are adding the eCart add to cart button.

Go to Insert -> WebAssist -> eCart -> Add to cart.

Select the option to lookup the item ID from a recordset, select the products recordset on the details page and the ID column, on the bindings tab, bind each eCart column to the appropriate recordset column.


see the eCart getting started guide for more details:

Thanks - but ...

Thanks Jason

I undersood all of this part - it was the binding of the cart to the E Commerce database which I am unsure of. As I understand it E Cart 5 stores orders into the cart. How do I set this part up ( ie how will E Cart know which tyables to store which parts of the order in ) so it stores the orders correctly ?

in the checkout wizard, on the order management page, select the default preset. the default preset uses the eCommerce database table structure for the Order and orderDetails tables.
