are you looking to have a minimum order of 6 cupcakes in total, or 6 of any particular kind ?

Hello Craig,

6 of a particular kind

Thanks

Ok, here's the next question.

Do you only want to sell in multiples of 6, or would a customer be able to add, for example, 8 to their cart ?

The customer can order any number more than 6, so say 6, or more - but no less than 6

Do you have validation toolkit or one of the WA apps which include validation toolkit?

you could try adding server side validation to your page with the add to cart form, checking for the quantity value in the add to cart form.

you would also need to do something similar on your cart page, so if the customer removes items from the cart to below 6 of any one item, they get a similar warning

Yes we do have Server and Client validation webassist tools, can you provide me with an examples of:
Validation trigger
Validation type
server variable

Thanks again

ok.

Assuming you are on your page with an add to cart form...

the validation trigger would be either any form post or cartname_ATC_button press

the validation type would be number

the server variable would be the add to cart form quantity field.

when you add the validation, set the minimum number to 6.

you then need to add the validation show if code

there is a validation toolkit guide here

Do we use "server" or "client" validation? We have attempted both without luck. In the last post you stated to choose the quantity field from the server variables, we are not seeing that as an option.

Any direction is appreciated.

Thanks Erick

i modified cupcakes.php as you had a lot of duplicate code in there.

I set up server side validation for add to cart form 3, which is for all simple cupcakes.

i also changed your recordsets so all data comes from a table called cupcake1, (as i had this table with all of your items which i used to help you with your image display in an earlier post) and just filtered by product type

if you take a look at the code, it should be clear.

attached is the updated page
