E Cart great but ......

Feature Request:

I have built around 5 e carts now - and very pleased with the product.

However - all I have done each time is to import your std SQL database into localhost and exported as Excel. I have then had to put my product info into your columns leaving the original Column names in the same so the orders all get stored correctly - as I am not sure how the cart would store orders if the Products table had my chosen table headers ?

Is it possible to change the Table Headings on the Products table in your supplied database - and if I did this would the cart work as regards storing orders ?

If not my suggestion would be that you make an extension - to Create a custom MySQL database from column headers entered by the customer ( so if I had ProductDesc | Price | PricePreCarriage | Carriage - as I moved through the wizard this would create tables to store orders etc based on the product fields entered by the customer.

Maybe MySQLAssist ? I am realtively new to this and do not understand it enough to
put in my own data headers - so I end up using your std database - running data assist for the admin pages - and then I go into the Text fields on the admin page and rename them to what I want to store ( eg as I dont need ProductWeight - On the cart I am building I will change the text on the admin pages to PricePreCarriage )

There must be others like me who would like you to write a scipt that converts an Excel Sheet to My Sql and writes the customers column headers as it converts to MySQL

What do you think

you can use your own database with eCart, or use the one we provide as a starting point.

also, you can edit the column names in the database we provide if you like.

If you want to do this, i would suggest doing it before you use eCart, not after. If you do this after using eCart, it will break the code because it will be referencing the old column names not the new ones.


When running the checkout wizard, the Section for store order information allows you to use one of the presets, or if you prefer, to use you own table.

If you select to use your own table, you will need to bind the columns of your table to the columns of eCart.
