Mel's shopping cart setup need help

Postby badger » Sat Nov 07, 2009 7:16 pm

I first used Mels cart 5 years ago, and have forgotten how I did it. I need a few grafic pointers to get me started.
my hold up is what to put where in the Forms Edit Field Properties and the
Table ComboBox Properties boxes.

Could anyone send me a couple of images withe the boxes filles in
I would then know what goes where.

I need those first couple of steps spelled out for me

If there is anyone who would make a good teacher with graphics rather than
just point me a links

1. Do I create a Form area first yes or no ?

2. do I place a 3 coll table on the form, yes or no ? If not what

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN IN EASEY STEPS like 1 and 2 ???

I need those first basic steps for a NOF setup.

Thanks

Mal's.... not Mel's. :wink:

Are you trying to use the e-comm catalog component in Fusion or are you trying to add Buy links manually?

Sounds like manually using the form tools.

Do you have a URL I can look at?

Or, if you've starting putting a page together in Fusion, you could export a template and send to me via PM so I can see what you're trying to do.

Why are you using dropdowns when each item has only one option?

All you need is the add to cart button. And use add.cfm, not addmulti.cfm.

<form action="http://ww7.aitsafe.com/cf/add.cfm" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="userid" value="9711392">
<input type="hidden" name="return" value="www.memorabiliaaustralia.com.au/miscell ... orts_.html">
<input type="hidden" name="product" value="Name of Item here">
<input type="hidden" name="price" value="25.00"> (enter real price)
... etc... </form>

You're trying to add a product with the description and price combined in a dropdown value. Won't work that way.

If you have options, like a quantity field, you use product[], rather than simply product.

Then each option combo is named product[]

Any more questions, let me know.

Thanks for the help. Its all come back to me and I can now replicate the cart selection as per my web site.

I used drop downs because the client would somtime add /delete several items, differant size or colours ect
and I personaly found it easer to maintain in the Forms Properties box.
