Add Continue Shopping button to Product Detail page?

Add Continue Shopping button to Product Detail page?

How do I add a Continue Shopping button to the Product_Detail page? I tried adding one with eCart 4 on the basic PowerStore page and it displays another Product Detail page item (with a different ProductID) rather than the Product_Results page.

Thanks - Joe

The continue shopping button generally goes back to the last viewed product's product detail page. To get a button that will link to the product results page, you could create a form with a button that posts to the products results page.

<form id="continueShopping" name="continueShopping" method="post" action="Products_Results.php">
<label>
<input type="submit" name="continueShopping" id="continueShopping" value="Continue Shopping" />
</label>
</form>

Then you can style the button the way you want.

That would work if you had just a continue shopping button on a page with no other forms, but this is on the Product_Detail page which has an Add to Cart button--and form-- on the page. Any other thoughts on how this might be done in the PowerStore Product_Detail page?

Having another form on the page doesn't affect the action of this form. It will post to the product results page. I just tested it on a PowerStore I set up and it forwards correctly to the product results page. Were there any other modifications you made that may affect the way the form action would work?

Thanks for the reply, Jimmy. No, I don't think I've made any modifications that would affect the form action. I guess I'd stymied by already having the Add to Cart form on the page. Did you place your form after it?

Yes, I placed the form at nearly the bottom of the page. Make sure you don't put it within another form's form tags.
