Web development tutorial

Link to a detail page from your cart

Tutorial created by Team WebAssist

Categories: eCart


This tutorial will teach you how to add a link back to the detail page of a product on your eCart shopping cart page. We apply the dynamic link directly to the placeholder image on the cart created by the eCart Display Manager, but you can add it to the product name in the cart as well, or apply this technique to other areas of your website.
