Custom Continue Shopping Button

Custom Continue Shopping Button


I have a cart which works fine but I've used the 'if ($lbp_Cart->IsEmpty())' to show another table with an empty cart. This works fine. So now if the user adds something to the cart then views cart and clears cart the cart, the page now shows the empty cart table.

Problem is the continue shopping button will obviously have the cart page stored in its variable using this method. I don't want to use javascript history back 2 as someone coming to an empty cart straight from clicking the view cart button could possibly go back too far, even off site.

Is there a solution? Can I change the variable?


(Sorry - I hope I didn't make that eCart)

the add to cart button creates a session named WAEC_ContinueRedirect that is used by the continue shopping button.

you could add the following code to line 1 of the cart display page to set that variable if it has not been set yet:

<?php @session_start(); if(!isset($_SESSION['WAEC_ContinueRedirect'])) $_SESSION['WAEC_ContinueRedirect'] = "/index.php"?>

Thanks, I've got it working now - I split the cart files up and used a <a href> to the cart.php in the view cart button. I'll send a link to the site when it's finished, the cart works terrific!
