Add to Cart button

adding a cart to a web page. It is the only cart on the page and the only cart listed in the server behaviors.

select where I want the page to redirect to.

Changed the color of the add to cart button.

Save and put.

Button is old color and didn't change.

Selected add to cart button and the screen is not redirected - stays on same page.

what's going on?

I would suspect that the upload to the server did not work.

Sometimes Dreamweaver is not very reliable when uploading changes to the server.

To ensure that your changes are being uploaded properly, make a visual change to the page like adding todays date to the title.

If you continue to have a problem, send a copy of the page and a description of what button design type you are trying to use.

Renaming didn't help.
I copied all files that I could think of for you to look at. The page file is Tags_RD.php.

The add to cart button on any page is not redirecting. It stays on same page.

I have included my shopping cart page as well for you to be able to look at....

the code for the add to cart button form action is not correct.


<form name="Nitrodog_1_ATC_90088" method="POST"  action="<?php echo $_SERVER["file:///C|/Users/L. Ofiana/Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5/ecart/PHP_SELF"]; ?><?php echo (isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] != "")?"?".$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]:""?>">


<form name="Nitrodog_1_ATC_90088" method="POST"  action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?><?php echo (isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] != "")?"?".$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]:""?>">

Thank you Jason

So do I open any file with an ecart object, select an add to cart button, go down to properties and select form, find the code and paste in the new selection?
I did this for the 2 add to cart buttons on the webpage and it still is not directing to go to the shopping cart.
I also pasted it into the checkout button code. Now that button redirects to the index page!

If not, what would be the steps I should take?

Every add to cart button is not working, even on newly constructed pages. Will this fix the root cause?

Also, what do you think happened to make this change in the first place so I can avoid doing so in the future?
