Shopping cart has vanished

Shopping cart has vanished

My eCart 5 shopping cart is no longer showing up. It has worked beautifully up until this weekend. I've attached a zip of my cart.php page code. I'm not getting an error message. The page renders but nothing appears between the deader and the footer.

I can see everything in design view, but nothing appears in either live view or on my server. Same thing for all my other eCart pages.

I'd love to know what happened, but more importantly, I need to get this fixed so that we can continue to process orders. Thanks in advance.

it sounds like a php error is occurring.


Add the following code at line 1 of your pages to turn error reporting on:

php:
<?php
error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>




and post back a link to your site so I can see the issue.

Additionally,

When I run the page I get the following error message:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING in /home/davcow9/InnerchoicePublishing.com/cart.php on line 27

I've attached the code for line 27 as a screen shot.

sorry, there was a typo in my original code.
change:

php:
ini_set('display_errors',on');


to:

php:
ini_set('display_errors','on');

Jason, Made the change you indicated and put the page up. It renders just as it did before. Am I giving you what you need?

the issue is being caused by conflicting styles in the main.css file.


if you edit:
#wrapper {
margin: 0px auto;
padding: 0px;
width: 960px;
text-align: center;
border-right: 5px solid #969D85;
border-left: 5px solid #969C85;
z-index: 500;
overflow: hidden;
background-color: #FEFABA;
}

to:
#wrapper {
margin: 0px auto;
padding: 0px;
width: 960px;
text-align: center;
border-right: 5px solid #969D85;
border-left: 5px solid #969C85;
z-index: 500;
/*overflow: hidden;*/
background-color: #FEFABA;
}



you can begin to see the cart display area, you will need to troubleshoot the other styles in the main.css to find any remaining conflicting styles.

Jason, Tried this and I get the following error message in all of my test browsers:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING in /home/davcow9/InnerchoicePublishing.com/WA_eCart/eCart1_PHP.php on line 15

the change I had you make was to the main.css page, not to the cart. you must have made a change in the cart object as well.

send a copy of the WA_eCart/eCart1_PHP.php file so i can see whats at line 15.

Jason,

Here you go. I hope this is what you need.

When I made the /*overflow: hidden;*/ change, My index page went crazy in IE 6&7 with a major compatibility issue.

When I removed the /**/ all was well. The overflow declaration was already in place when the cart issue arose. Anyway, here's the file you requested.
