refreshing shopping cart

Recommended Posts



is there a way i can refresh the shopping cart once the quantity has been changed?

i would like to implement some code so when you click either the add or subtract quantity button the cart will change the quantity and then reload.


i tried reloading the page however this took too long so i figured reloading just the cart would be easier however i have been unable to do this and i can't link this with the button click.


my site is http://telephoneheadsets.net/


If i could get help quickly I'd appreciate it my site is being indexed pretty well and i want this sorted before too many people get put off by its inability to function properly

what you describe is a normal behavior when ajax cart is enabled in the back office.


did you change something in cart process?

yes, I have asked for help before without success.


I have modified the shopping cart to display prices without tax, however, when you use the buttons to change quantity the prices revert to including tax.


I would like for those changes to be permenant. so far all I have been able to do is add an update cart button which refreshes the page.


I would like for this process to be included in the pressing of the button or a fix for showing prices without tax permanently.


I would really appreciate your help!

I am going to move this to the development section.


Sat., you will need to provide more information, i.e. catch code or somehow convey what you have already done...hopefully someone in the development forum can help you.

ok, all i have done so far is go through the shopping-cart.tpl file and swap and bits that are tax inclusive to tax exclusive.

i.e. here i have my site set to use tax. the tha cart shows products tax inclusive as default. i have changed it to be tax exclusive and changed the displayed word from tax to VAT. I moved the "_wt" from one to the other.

similar changes were made throughout the document.

	{if isset($product.is_discounted) && $product.is_discounted}
					<span style="text-decoration:line-through">{convertPrice price=$product.price_without_specific_price}</span><br />
				{if !$priceDisplay}
					{convertPrice price=$product.price}
					{convertPrice price=$product.price_wt}
