Using eCart on pages with Tabbed Panels

Hello!!

Been using eCart with great success....

I recently decided to change the menu page a bit. Right now, the menu for this sandwich shop is for two weeks, and it is in one table on the page and working great.

I changed it to have one week's menu on one tab, and another weeks menu on a second tab. The first tab works fine, the second tab sends you to the first tab when you try to "add to cart"

Any ideas?

Thank you,
Rich

Does the first tab go to the cart display page?


do you have a link?

Can you send a copy of the page? I will need some more details on the problem to have an idea of what is wrong.

Jason,

Yes, the first tab will take you to the cart, and operates without error.

Attached is the test page...

Thanks,
Rich

Jason,

Have you had a chance to look at this? Any suggestions?

I haven't touched it in a bit, but will work on it tonight. I'll let you know if I make any headway or find more useful info.

Thanks,
Rich

Whith so many add to cart buttons on the page, it is impossible to see what may be going wrong.


To trouble shoot this, first simplify.

Create the page with 2 tabs, on each tab add a static add to cart button to take the recordset out of the equation, then test it.

If it is working with both as static add to cart buttons, create the recordset for each one and then change them to Dynamic add to cart buttons and test.

Once you have the first 2 working, add the next 2, one on each tab. and test. By adding them back one pair at a time, one on each tab, you can more easily pin point which one doesn't work for trouble shooting.


If you continue to have problems, please post a link as seeing the problem in a browser may help me see where the problem is.

BTW Jason, if you add to cart, then go to cart, then come back, you will go to the "actual" page, so make sure you change back to ourlunches2.php to continue testing.

Looking at the source code of the page,


this is the add to cart form that gets created for one of the items that works:

html:
<td align="left" valign="middle"><form name="teacherslunchbox_21_ATC_14" method="POST" action="/ourlunches2.php">

<p>Quantity:
<input type="text" name="teacherslunchbox_21_Quantity_Add" value="1" size="4" >
<input type="hidden" name="teacherslunchbox_21_ID_Add" value="14" >
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Bread:
<select name="teacherslunchbox_21_Bread_Add">
<option value="Honey Wheat">Honey Wheat</option>
<!-- <option value="Pumpernickel">Pumpernickel</option> -->
<option value="White">White</option>

</select>
</p>
<p> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
<input type="image" src="WA_eCart/Images/Pacifica/Btn3_EN_addtocart.gif" border="0" value="Add to Cart" name="teacherslunchbox_21_ATC" >
</p>
</form></td>



This is the add to cart form for an itwem that does not work:

html:
<td align="left" valign="middle"><form name="teacherslunchbox_1_ATC_" method="POST" action="/ourlunches2.php">
<p>Quantity:
<input type="text" name="teacherslunchbox_1_Quantity_Add2" value="1" size="4" >
<input type="hidden" name="teacherslunchbox_1_ID_Add2" value="" >
<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Bread:
<select name="teacherslunchbox_1_Bread_Add2">

<option value="Honey Wheat">Honey Wheat</option>
<!-- <option value="Pumpernickel">Pumpernickel</option> -->
<option value="White">White</option>
</select>
</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
<input type="image" src="WA_eCart/Images/Pacifica/Btn3_EN_addtocart.gif" border="0" value="Add to Cart" name="teacherslunchbox_1_ATC" > </p>

</form></td>





the main differance is that the one that does not work has a blank value for the ID:

html:
<input type="hidden" name="teacherslunchbox_1_ID_Add2" value="" >



The one that does work has a positive value for the ID:

html:
<input type="hidden" name="teacherslunchbox_21_ID_Add" value="14" >
