Order History Pages??? Having Troubles implimenting!

Order History Pages??? Having Troubles implimenting!

Hi,

I went through the "creating an Order History page for customers" guide, this seems to have gone well!

But now I have two pages which I have no idea how I "fit" them into the site. I would imagine that they could be "linked" from the customers profile page.

Is this how it's done normally?

In any case would someone be so kind to help me impliments this feature?

Thanks for any assistance someone can give.

Creating an Order History for your site

At the end of the tutorial you should have the following two pages:

customer_order_history.php
This is the Order History page for your customers. If set up correctly, it should display all the orders for the user that is currently logged in.

customer_order_detail.php
This is the detail page for each order. In many cases, more than one item is purchased in a single order, so this page will list all of the items for the particular order.

As far as implementing into your site, you should just add a link for 'Order History' somewhere that makes sense - Perhaps in the main navigation. This link would go to the customer_order_history.php. If you followed the SecurityAssist steps that are in the tutorial, a customer who is not logged in yet, should be required to log in to access this page. Once logged in, they will only be able to see the orders associated with their User ID.

The customer_order_detail.php should be accessible only from the Order History page, and this should already be set up by the DataAssist wizard.

Thanks for your assistance

Hi Neil,

Well I did follow the "creating an Order History page for customers" to the letter when I went through it and it appeared the pages were created properly. I entered some test transactions into the data base plus I had some real transactions in there already.

But when I open the pages in the browser it would say "No results for your search". As to the linking, I added a link to the "order history' page and that worked but it didn't link to the "order details" even when logged in.

I don't know why it hasn't worked! I will start again and see what happens!

Since the order history will be filtered on a particular user you must be logged in with a user that has orders associated with them in order to view the order history page properly. For the details page you should be able to just link directly to it with the identifier in the link.
