Multiple options under each item in shopping cart

Multiple options under each item in shopping cart

I am going to be using ecart as a service based shopping cart for a training site. What it needs to have is :

Course name Location Date Price

Course #1 New Jersey 10-5-10
Student dave $1995
Student Bob


Course #2 Orlando 10-20-10
Student dave $1995
Student Bob


How would i go about adding these students or options to each product (or course) to the cart? I know it would probably be session based. But i would like to have courses be highlighted and then students appear under each course..

I would also like a popup where i can add a student to a course and it would refresh the page and show up under the course.

What would be the way you suggest to accomplish this ?

what defines the order of the shopping cart?

As my earlier post describes i need a way to have a product, and then sub products under each product, though my parent product will not have a price as it is a place holder for the items under it. And i will have multiple parent items in the cart with multiple sub products under that one. How do i define the order of the cart so that when i add a new sub product it would still show in the correct parent product instead of at the bottom of the cart?

Does this make sense?

I'm not entirely sure i understand what you are trying to accomplish, but have a parent - child relations ship is something that eCart does not support and it will require some custom coding.

Do you have a url that i could see as an example of what you are trying to do?

A shopping cart might not be the best solution.

Or maybe just use the shopping cart for the students and maintain the selected course in the session.

You may want to use DataAssist and maintain it all in the database instead.

The short answer is that we don't have a tutorial or product specifically designed for the scenario you describe, so you will probably be on your own for the most part in deciding how you want to do it.

Once you decide that and give it a try and get stuck you can post here for more specific feedback.

ok

Ok, yes i understand, is there a way we can group the items in the cart under the course (session) ? So they appear like on the example i uploaded?

You would probably need to edit the php by hand to achieve it. There is always a way to do anything if you are familiar with the underlying technology, in this case PHP. Thre is not a feature or wizard in the ecart that would allow you to do that without hand coding.

Great

Is there anyone you would recommend that could do this coding in the forums? Or that knows ecart?

You could post to the jobs board on this forum, or just find anyone that knows how to code php and they should be able to figure out what you are talking about. It comes down to re-ordering arrays it sounds like so anyone who is comfortable with php should be able to do it.
