eCart add button and javascript form

eCart add button and javascript form

I have a form that I have used javascript to evaluate options and push a price into the input price form. Now I need to add an add-to-cart button so I can put the product into the cart. The problem I am running into when I go to add the button it will not allow me to add it to the existing form with the <form name="orderForm" ?> as I have it. It wants to use <form name="eCart_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_rsProduct["productid"]; ?>". Now I do not know enough about javascript to know what the exact form name is in javascript. Before I had document.orderForm.formPrice for the name in the form. So I need help in identifying the form name for javascript. I know this is not correct document.eCart_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_rsProduct["productid"]; ?>.formPrice or at least it is not working for me.

Your help is appreciated.

When it comes to the add to cart form on the page I don't think that the name matters. If you look at the add to cart code on the page it should be triggered on the button in the add to cart form. If you had a form with same fields and submit button it should trigger the add to cart behavior the same.

If you have any further trouble with this please post back with a page that has both forms on it and I can take a look.

I did replace the form name with the one I have already setup and it does seem to work correctly. I was just making sure that their is not something it is doing that I am not aware of.

On another issue, I have a menu setup with links and one of the links is to the administrative area. I have put all the admin pages in a folder so I do not confuse it with the main part of the website. The problem I am having is getting out of the folder once I am in it. (i.e. regular pages: pages on admin link: pages Now I am trying to get out of the folder but the link is pages which will show up as page missing) Right now, I have two menus set up. One for regular pages and another for the admin pages. Is this the only way to get this to work or have I missed something.

If you are using relative links to the pages then if the menu is on a page in a subdirectory it will not link to the pages properly. The ways to get around this are like you have noted, having two separate menus, one for the admin and one for the public.

Another way to get around this is to add the menu into a template file (.dwt.php). When the menu is part of a template the paths will adjust accordingly for the pages derived from that template.

Yet another way to do this would be to make all of the links absolute links that start with the /. This way it would not matter where the link was clicked on, it would go to the same page.
