ecart select to add cart

ecart select to add cart

Hello,

I have a list of products. Next to each product is an "add to cart" button.
I also added a text link to "view selections".
If they add an item to the Cart. The page stays the same (no redirect). If they click my link "view selections" it takes them to the cart display page.

The issue.
If the user is on product number 10 at the bottom of the page and they click on Add to Cart. The page refreshes, and positioning moves back to the top where product number 1 is.

How can I adjust the page so after the user clicks add to cart button when they are on product number 10, the positioning of the page stays the same and they can continue to scroll down through the remaining products 10, 11, 12 etc.

Thanks for your help,
Danielle

add an anchor next to each add to cart button:

<a name="id">Product 10</a>


and modify the add to cart form action to pass the anchor:
<form action="<?php echo ($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]."#id=10".(isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"])?"?".htmlentities($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]):""));?>" method="post" >



see this page for details on using the anchor name attribute:
html_links.asp

Hi Jason,


I am using anchors next to the product names. The products are dynamically listed on the page.
My code is attached. I should have attached this the first time, sorry.
Do I also need to anchor the add to cart (in my case select to print) buttons?

See attached.
Thanks for the help,
Danielle

you need to edit the redirect of the add to cart button code to include the anchor:
change:

$ATC_RedirectAfter = "";

to:
$ATC_RedirectAfter = "#".$_POST["PrintCart_1_ID_Add"]."";

your page is missing this code:
<?php
// WA eCart Redirect
if ($PrintCart->redirStr != "") {
header("Location: ".$PrintCart->redirStr);
}
?>



that should be just before the doctype tag.

Hi Jason,

I added the code.
When I view the page in my web browser. Nothing displays but a "Catchable fatal error:"

See attached for code and details.

Thanks,
Danielle

at line 64:

php:
$ATC_RedirectAfter = "#".$_POST["PrintCart_1_ID_Add"].""; ;



there is a double ; at the end, there should only be one:

php:
$ATC_RedirectAfter = "#".$_POST["PrintCart_1_ID_Add"]."";



and the redirect code:

php:
<?php

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



should be:

php:
<?php

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