Cart cleared after checkout on SSL pages but not the rest of the site

Cart cleared after checkout on SSL pages but not the rest of the site

I added this code:

// Initialize the session.
// If you are using session_name("something"), don't forget it now!

// Unset all of the session variables.
$_SESSION = array();

// If it's desired to kill the session, also delete the session cookie.
// Note: This will destroy the session, and not just the session data!
if (ini_get("session.use_cookies")) {
$params = session_get_cookie_params();
@setcookie(session_name(), '', time() - 42000,
$params["path"], $params["domain"],
$params["secure"], $params["httponly"]

// Finally, destroy the session.

as suggested after the closing html tag on the checkout_success page. It clears the cart as intended on the checkout pages and all the pages on my secure site (SSL folder) but I also need to clear the cart on the rest of the site when they navigate away from the checkout_success page. Can you tell me how to accomplish that?

this sounds like you have the SSL server on a different domain then the main shopping cart.

it gets difficult to clear the sessions in both places since there is rely not a way to display the success page with the order number in it on the SSL Site, and also trigger clearing the cart on the none ssl domain.

you could add a click here to continue back to the site link:
<a href="">click here to continue back to the site</a>

on the continue.php page add the code to clear the session, and add redirect if cart is empty behavior after it to direct to the main site index page.

Thanks Jason... I think that is a good work around.
