Working with Multiple Products on one page

Hello! I seem to remember the documentation for this being in the eCart area once before - but it's disappeared in the most current version.

I have a page that lists multiple products in a table. Each table row is a different product that is dynamically drawn from a database. Each product has a unique item number and a field for the user to be able to enter in the quantity of each product desired. Then at the bottom of the page I would like a submit button for this to go to the Shopping cart page. There will be 6 category pages like this in my store. Each with tables of multiple products - all going to the shopping cart.

This store requires users to be logged in and we also want these logged-in users to view their Order History. Each User has a pre-assigned unique User ID.

How can I have multiple product items on one page go to the shopping cart, and how can I work with the logged-in users with already existing User IDs see their order histories? (Your Order History instructions has us assigning them a user ID based on a session variable, but they already have User IDs pre-assigned.)

Many Thanks!

Carlene

See the "Building a Multiple Item Add to Cart Interface (eCart 3)" Tutorial in the Archived Documentation section of the eCart support page:

ecart/



For the order history, when a user logs in, their ID should be captured in a session variable, this session variable is used by the Order History tutorial to retrieve the users past order, it is not assigning the value, rather using the value ti get orders the logged in user has placed.

Thank you so much for the link Jason. And thanks so much for the clarification.

I saw in another post that you had said that putting in a quantity for multiple items was impossible in this iteration of eCart?

I'll try to find a work around - but please ask someone there to look in to this as well!

I've tried finding a work around on a few different occasions and walked away with a massive migraine.

Sorry, but with the way the multi item add to cart interface works, it cant be done.

Can't find Multiple Item Add to Cart Link

I'm trying to find the tutorial on how to add several products with one "add" button. But I can't find on the site, and there is no Archive section that I can find either. Can someone please provide link to page?

I'm using eCart 4 with static products.

Thanks Jason!

Perhaps you could add that on a wish list for future upgrades?

Adam,


The Multi Item Add To Cart tech note can be found here:
ecart_multiple_atc.pdf

The archived documentation section was removed temporarily, it should be back soon.

Multiple products

Thank you for the link. Is there not a simpler way to do this with a static site?

No, it cannot be done with a static site, you need to have a dynamic product catalog to be able to accomplish this.
