Multiple Items / Add to Basket / Continue Shopping

Newby Question...

I’ve just searched the forum and not been able to find a complete answer to my problem so if anyone is able to help it would make my day.

I’ve been checking out the demo store front end at index2.php and it appears to be impossible to add multiple products from different categories to a basket without the laborious round trip of hitting the ‘Add to Basket’ button for each item followed by ‘Return to Shopping’. It there a way to keep on adding and adding products without visiting and updating the basket each time?

Cheers,
Pete

On the product detail page, there is one line of code that tells it to go to the cart.php page after the item is added to the cart.

find the following code:

php:
$ATC_RedirectAfter = "cart.php";




and change it to:

php:
$ATC_RedirectAfter = "";

Thanks Jason Ill give it a try.

Since you’re in a helpful frame of mind I’m also about to post another question that you may be able to answer;

Is there away to save browser sessions / shopping cart contents so that users can log on again and get access to a partly completed order after a browser restart?

the only way to accomplish that is to set the cart object to use cookies instead of sessions.


The problem with using instead of sessions is that there is a limit to the maximum size a cookie can be. This will limit the number of items that can be added to the cart, it wont pose a problem in most cases, but if you have a customer that tries to put say 75 or 80 items in the cart, they may not be able to.

Cookie Limit

Thanks again Jason. That news is disappointing. The facility to save the contents of a cart is important. I was hoping to use Power Store in the context of an engineering parts ordering shop.

Looks like I may have to look elsewhere although Ill probably get Powerstore working as well as possible first.

Very grateful for your help.
