eCart Shopping cart summary only showing "Order Total"

eCart Shopping cart summary only showing "Order Total"

Hi All,
Ive got the site on the server testing everything, i came across the eCart shopping cart summary after i add a product everything updates as should except

the table containing :

Sales Tax:
Order Total:

only displays Order Total.

I have replaced the cart.php with a fresh one, i thought maybe it was an edit in css so i backed up my modified css and replaced with fresh css folder.

im looking at the code on cart.php and i see the lines:

if ($WA_Store_Cart->GetTax() > 0)     {
<th>Sales Tax:</th>
<td><?php echo WA_eCart_DisplayMoney($WA_Store_Cart, $WA_Store_Cart->GetTax()); ?></td>
//WA eCart Merchandizing Show End

im thinking its stating that if GetTax is greater then 0 display the table row.
i just cant think why it would not display the rows?

any ideas

btw:all products are in DB and mysql connection work perfectly

This means that the rules for applying the tax to the cart have not been fulfilled yet.
In the eCart object, how is the tax rule defined? Usually, it is based on the billing state. The user does not enter the billing state until they click the checkout button and fill in the checkout form.

In most cases, you will not see a tax rate on the cart page, the tax rate will be calculated on the confirm page, after the user has filled in the checkout information.

Hi Jason,
I just found that if i edit WA_Globals.php
and i make the state variable nothing:
// Tax Setting
$WAGLOBAL_TaxRate = 0.825;
$WAGLOBAL_TaxState = "";

the sub-total and sales tax area shows on the cart.php order summary.

if i place a state it blanks the table rows!

eCART tax setup is shown on image 3

if i comment out the if else statements controlling the display of the table rows everything shows: image 4

i have so far replaced folders with fresh ones:

im lost

In your last screen shot, the tax value that is displaying is 0. do you want the tax value to display even if it is 0? if so, you will need to comment out the if else statements controlling the display of the table rows.
