messed up files in webassist/plugins folder

I'm doing some fairly extensive customization of a PowerStore installation, so I'm working with the files in the webassist/plugins folder. It was coming along well and then I made some errors that are messing it up. I'd like to start with fresh copies of those pages, but I see they're not in the version I download. I gather they're generated on installation. Is there no way to get back to the starting point without reinstalling fresh?

add to cart behavior

Bless you, Jason, that answer made my day. I think I've restored the damaged pages and most is well again. But I'm having the issue that when someone adds something to the shopping cart, it doesn't take them to the shopping cart. I thought that this morning before my goof up it was doing that, though I'm not actually positive. It adds the item to the cart, just doesn't actually show them the cart unless the visitor clicks to see it. Is this something I could change simply somewhere? When I make an add -to -cart button with ecart, I know that's a simple toggle.

theres probably a php error occurring that is preventing the redirect form working

add the following code to line 1 of the product_details.php page to turn error reporting on:

php:
<?php

error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>



once we know what the error is, we will be able to troubleshoot the cause.

OK, now I've got a big question for you. I'm working on a site where I installed PS months ago but only used the backend to allow the customer to enter data on the courses they offer. I did a lot of monkey business to give them a front end that displayed the courses but didn't give them ecommerce. You can see what I did here
courses.php and here
courses_category.php?CategoryID=8 and here
courses_instructor.php?OptionID=3

So the next step was to finish configuring PowerStore and skin it to match their site. They're not happy with the progress I've made with that because it looks "too commercial".

They had been very happy with how things were looking and don't want it to change. So I could just put some register now buttons on the current pages and only have people entering PowerStore proper at checkout.

Does this seem like a terrible approach? What would be the easiest way to go about it?

yeah, this seams like a bad way to go, and will prone to too many possible problems.

You would be better off either modifying the look of power store to suit your needs, or creating a new cart system from the ground up, including the back end admin section.


power store is not intended for the type of piecemeal usage your attempting.
