Erratic eCart Update(s)

Thread began 1/30/2012 11:09 am by deanmale2001272549 | Last modified 2/02/2012 10:01 am by Jason Byrnes | 1582 views | 3 replies |


Erratic eCart Update(s)

If I add to Cart the first time I have to reload page to get item to show. Once I do that however, It adds each time I press 'Add to Cart.'

Also, If I go back and forth between index.php and items_Detail.php it adds one item to Quick Cart on top of each page as I go back and forth each time. (Without pressing 'Add to Cart.')

Lastly, on my Quick Cart (index.php) it doesn't bring up any kind of detail when I press 'View.' I assume this is the code: onclick="MM_goToURL('plugins/parent',''). Guess, I'm not sure which is the parent? Quick Cart on top of items_Detail.php or Quick Cart on top of index.php

Hopefully, I've uploaded proper files, let me know if you need more?? Thanks!!!!

on the details page, remove the delete record server behavior, this server behavior should not be on a public page.

also edit the WADAItems recordset from:

SELECT ItemID, ItemCatID, ItemName, ItemShortDesc, ItemLongDesc, ItemPrice, ItemSKU, ItemThumb, ItemImage, ItemWeight
FROM items
WHERE ItemID = ParamItemID OR ( -1= ParamItemID2 AND ItemID= ParamSessionItemID)

SELECT ItemID, ItemCatID, ItemName, ItemShortDesc, ItemLongDesc, ItemPrice, ItemSKU, ItemThumb, ItemImage, ItemWeight
FROM items
WHERE ItemID = ParamItemID

and delete the ParamItemID2 and ParamSessionItemID variables.

next, find the following code block:


// WA eCart Redirect
if ($Dean_Test_Cart_1->redirStr != "")     {
header("Location: ".$Dean_Test_Cart_1->redirStr);

and move it so it is just before the doctype tag.

for the view cart, you need to add the cart page name to the second parameter.

Send Form in Browser, Auto- Updates Quick Cart Quantity

Thanks Jason for help!

Still- As I hit 'Add to Cart' the (first time) in item_Details.php, it does not add to quick cart.

If I go to the quick cart on index.php, it updates first time, on first click, from the page, item_Details.php.

Again, if I 'reload' item_Details.php in browser, quick cart will update. (By Qty. 1)
If I go to index.php (to check quantity update from previous page I was on, item_Details.php) and then go back to that page [item_Details.php], it then updates first 'Add to Cart' that did not work while on the page [items_Details.php] the first time. (Same as a reload, I guess.)

Also, anytime I get the drop down alert to 'Send Form' in Browser, it Auto- Updates Quick Cart Quantity by 1. (I get this alert as I ping- pong between index.php and item_Details.php.)

Lastly, I made a cart.php page to come up as I press the 'View' button on quick cart, index.php, no cart.php page comes up. Nothing comes up.

I assume I have to build a cart.php or cart_Details.php page from scratch, as I did not see it in the eCart Sample Store Original Files that I am obviously working off of. Either way, I built a dummy page (cart.php) with text, nothing comes up.
