How do I add a quick cart?

Reading through threads I found the option to add a quick cart to a page. I would like to do that, but I can't find how to do that. A search in the documentation didn't bring up anything. Could anyone point me in the right direction? Can I use eCart to do that?

Yes, this would be done using eCart. You would do this by adding your eCart object first. Then you would use the Display Manager and change the Display type to Quick Cart. There are also a few other display types to choose from there if those would fit your needs better.

Thank you, Jimmy. I overlooked that.

I inserted a quick cart on a test page, which works excactly as I like it to. I then tried to copy the code to the template page, but once I save the template page, the top part of the php code is not copied to all the other pages with the result, that on all pages everything after the quick cart is gone.

Is there a way, other than pasting the code to every single page, to get the template page to carry the php changes over to all pages?

One more question

I think my question might have been overlooked.

I am using a template page, and I would like the quick cart to become part of that template page. But the php code is in the top section of the code (above the document type), and that part of the code is not copied to the pages that are attached to the template. Without that code everything on the page after the quick cart is gone.

Is there a way, other than pasting the php code for the quick cart to every single page, to get a template page to carry the php changes over to all pages?

The PHP code should be included in the template. How are you creating your template? If you open up your template page, make sure that the includes and PHP code are included at the top, then try applying the template to your page.

Hi Jimmy,

I have been using the template page for all pages in the site. I created the template page as a regular php page, and then made it template with insert - template objects.

I modified the template page to hold the quick cart (not the entire quick cart, I am just using the number of items and the amount), and this is the code that is added to the top:
<?php
//WA eCart Include
require_once("../WA_eCart/cartname_PHP.php");
?><?php
$cartname->GetContent();
?>
<?php
// WA eCart Redirect
if ($cartname->redirStr != "") {
header("Location: ".$cartname->redirStr);
}
?>

I had deleted the behaviors regarding the buttons.

Now, when I open a new page based on the template, the code appears at the top. But the existing pages do not have the code even though they were updated. Also applying the template does not get the code on the pages.

I don't have that many pages, so I decided to go ahead and paste the code to every page that does not have the code. The cart and the checkout pages have the code already.

I had opened a new thread, because I thought the question was overlooked. Eric suggested a solution that worked.

I moved the code right behind the html tag, which applied the change to all pages in the site. And it works, the quick cart looks good.
