Update Cart goes to Checkout Success Page

Update Cart goes to Checkout Success Page

I created the cart originally with eCart4 and have since updated to eCart5. While in the shopping cart when I try "updating" quantities or removing items from the cart.php, I am taken to the Checkout Success Page (checkout_success.php). When going back to shopping cart by either clicking on the browser's (I tested in IE, Firefox & Chrome) "back" button or clicking on the site's link to shopping cart, the items have indeed been updated as requested. The site is wildbirdwest.com.

What have I done to create this issue and how do I remove/fix it?

I did search the forum the best I could and found no threads for this issue before I posted this so if I've missed one, please forgive me.

Thanking you in advance for you expert help!

Could you post up your cart.php page so I can take a look at it please? It seems the redirect for update has been modified to forward to the checkout_success.php page instead of the cart.php again.

cart page

The url is
wildbirdwest dot com

Not the url for the page, the code for that particular page is what I was looking for. You can zip it up and attach it to your next response.

Find this block of code:

php:
<?php

// WA eCart Redirect
if ($WBW->redirStr != "")     {
  
header("Location: ".$WBW->redirStr);
}
?>



and modify it to look like this:

php:
<?php

// WA eCart Redirect
if ($WBW->redirStr != "")     {
  die(
$WBW->redirStr);
  
header("Location: ".$WBW->redirStr);
}
?>



This will print out the redirect string to the page and stop execution. Can you post back with what is on the screen when you go through updating?

I get this on a blank white page after clicking on "update cart": checkout_success.php
I attached the code to be sure I've given you what you want.

Now here's something interesting...when I (inadvertantly) put a <br /> tag as shown below, it worked perfectly as did the "clear cart", but the "continue shopping" did nothing-no response at all:

?><br />
<?php
// WA eCart Redirect
if ($WBW->redirStr != "") {
header("Location: ".$WBW->redirStr);
}
?>

But then that creates this error message : Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/wildbird/public_html/cart.php:129) in /home/wildbird/public_html/cart.php on line 132

The reason you get the warning now is that you are forwarding the page when it is in the middle of writing out the page (where you added the <br /> tag). Adding the <br /> tag isn't the correct solution to the issue. Did you make any modifications to the cart pages after eCart generated them? The redirect is being written incorrectly as the checkout success page instead of the cart page.

I'm not sure what the attachment is supposed to show me.

I am sorry, I didn't make clear that I realized all of that about the <br /> tag...I just thought it was interesting.

I didn't intentionally make changes to the redirects but obviously I must have. Can you tell me how to fix the redirect?

Thank you.

OK, wel remove the br tag of course.

Then the error says:

  cart.php:129) in /home/wildbird/public_html/cart.php on line 132  



what is on line 129 and what is on line 132? Somehow those are the two lines causing issues, so I'd like to look at them to give a diagnosis.
