Can existing pages integrate with new PowerStore

Can existing pages integrate with new PowerStore

Hi There

I am coming in to a company put a store in to an existing site. The existing site is relatively simple and includes many of the products on the home page. I was always under the impression that the store was now a separate section within the site in its own directory. However I have been asked about having a cart on the existing pages.

Is this possible? Can a customer start a cart and then come out of the store (but remain on the domain) to the home page, and then select another product that they originally saw. This would then take them back in to the store and back to their existing cart.

I know it sounds a bit crazy but there is no harm in asking. Is there a way to do this? And would it be easy?

I pay monthly for all the webassist extensions. So I would have any of them if you say they are needed.

I suspect this is built in and the cart contents are stored in a cookie. So providing the user has cookie enabled it should work.

As to incorporating the shopping cart into existing pages depends on how much work you want to do and what your knowledge of CSS and Dreamweaver is.

PS3 is template based so you could modify the template with your existing design and that would apply to your site.

I think my prefered method would be to take take the exisiting design and save it as a template. I'd then cut and paste all the WA code from the supplied shop template into my new template (if you follow).

Once I was happy I'd then save my new template over the WA template and that would of course update the whole site.

Might be a lot of work but if you are confident I do not forsee any real problems.

What I would say is make sure it all functions before you start and take lots of backups

No doubt technical will come back to you but to me it's all possible.

Hi Ian

This guy doesn't want to part with any money at all. As my father in law used to say "pounds are prisioners in his hands".

So the cookie option sounds ok to me if it works.

I should be able to test this tomorrow.
