Why is it that every time I try to add wa Ecart 5 to my pages I get a blank page?

I'm trying to add Ecart to pages built in dreamweaver cs6 and it's been driving me insane.
I've used both pieces of software, for several years, and this is the first time I've had issues,
but boy, are they issues!

the eCart include code is using the virtual function:
<?php
//WA eCart Include
virtual("/WA_eCart/starfire2_PHP.php");
?>


This is a problem with your Dreamweaver Site definition settings.

i the site definition there is a settings for "Create Links Relative to". When you use the Site option DW Will use the virtual funciton for include files. the virtual function is not supported in many versions of PHP. If you use the Document setting, DW Will use the require_once function for include file which is more widely supported.

Nope, my Dreamweaver setting is for Document relative, not site...checked that one last night. Any other thoughts? (I Hope!!)

all the links I see on this page are site relative:

<link href="/styles/starfire_style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

using the site relative links setting in the Site definition is the only way I have ever seen DW force the virtual function to be used.

you can manually edit the code to the require_once function:

<?php
//WA eCart Include
require_once("WA_eCart/starfire2_PHP.php");
?>

OK, tried it, now, in Live preview, I have:

GetContent();?> redirStr !=""){header("Location:".$starfire2->redirStr);}?>

across the top of the preview. Is that supposed to be that way?

this page is 2 directories up from the site root:
http://www.starfireswords.com/products/leather/1.25x14.php

so the link to the cart file:

<?php
//WA eCart Include
require_once("/WA_eCart/starfire2_PHP.php");
?>



should be:

<?php
//WA eCart Include
require_once("../../WA_eCart/starfire2_PHP.php");
?>

OK, that worked! Now, one more q, and I'll get out of your hair: Which file should the "View Cart" button point to?
