Cart, Search, LogIn all on Home Page

Cart, Search, LogIn all on Home Page

I have a few working recordsets on Home Page. Including LogIn and Products Grid. As I add Cart (cart.php), I do not get a visual of cart contents. Just the 'cart is empty' message. I actually had it posting contents to the 'cart' on home page over the weekend, but functionally dropped somehow without touching code. Everything works if I go through the 'product details', 'add to cart', 'checkout', etc. On separate pages. But with all combined on home page, 'cart is empty' message only.

the problem is domain switching.

cart contents are stored i a session.

Sessions are based on the Browsing Cookie.

Cookies are based on the domain in the address bar.

if you visit:
funlifefoods.com

you start one browsing session

www.funlifefoods.com
is a separate browsing session, it cannot see the cart content form the non www address.


you are going to the non www address to add items:
http://funlifefoods.com/products_detail.php?ProductID=1

then trying to see the items using the www address:
http://www.funlifefoods.com/index_5.php

if you change that to the non www address you will see the items:
http://funlifefoods.com/index_5.php


you can use an htaccess rule to force all traffic to use the www address, see this tutorial:

Disables 'Checkout'

Thanks for speedy reply Jason! I used Ray's php method to strip out www. so Cart and Home Page have same address. Worked great, (although I've got that include on the top of Head tag on Home Page and at the bottom of Head tag for cart.php and product_details.php.) Otherwise, I was getting "Headers already sent" error message.

Any reason why that would keep one from advancing to checkout.php form? Checkout button doesn't send one to checkout form, now? (Just reloads page [It looks like?]) All the other buttons work. (Continue Shopping, Clear Cart, Update Cart)

Thanks in advance.

are you using include() to add the other pages?

That wont work as it adds php code to the body of the page which causes the headers already sent error.

instead you should use framework builder to add the other pages as plugins. framework builder is a part of Design Extender and Data Bridge.

No, I only added my www_exclude.php (To strip www. from pages) via 'include', as per tutorial. Should I use Framework builder to add checkout.php to Home Page?

on the checkout page move the following code to line 5:
<?php
$eCart1->GetContent();
?>

Moving code up to line 5 did not make the Cart's 'checkout' button work on the home page. No error messages. Just did not work. Is there a plan B? Thanks for your help!

The power store index page will have the code for showing the featured product, you should use the index page from power store.
