ecart questions and problems

ecart questions and problems

I have several questions I haven't been able to find answers for.

1. How do I get to the Dreamweaver receipes for the free button download? I coudn't find them so I downloaded ecart but am having fits trying to get it to work

2. If I am ONLY going to use static buttons do I have to have an application server?

3 I downloaded MAMP and configured it and it appears to be working according to the quick start. But when I build my page and then try to display in live view all I get is a blank page in design view. What am I doing wrong?

4. I would like the word quantity to appear before the quantity field is ther a way to do that?

5. Will the cart take fractions in quantity? I sell fabric and it is not sold in whole yards. Paypal wrote me a script for my original website and I might have to go back to using that.

1) The Dreamweaver recipes are for a discontinued product.

The recipes do not apply to the new "Payment Buttons for PayPal" extesnion.

2) eCart uses php code whether the items are static or not, so yes, you sill need an application server.

3) when a php page displays blank it means a php error has occurred but error reporting is turned of. you can add the following code to the page at line 1 to turn error reporting on:



4) You can type quantity next to the quantity filed to accomplish this.

5) it will not allow fractions "1 1/2" for the quantity, but it will allow decimals "1.5"

Thanks for the reply I'll try them all. I already had the app server installed and up but hoped I might not need it.
