Thread: Using Manufacturer's dropdown list resets cart to 0 items

  1. #1

    Default Using Manufacturer's dropdown list resets cart to 0 items

    Quick background.... I just spent over 30 hrs integrating the new Max 1.7 into one of my client's sites... only to find what could be a programming bug (I'm not say I didn't cause it).

    I'm at the point where I'm doing usability testing... I picked a bunch of products and add/remove them from the shopping cart... appears to work fine. Now for the problem... whenever I use the Manufactures dropdown list to filter the product listing the selected shopping cart contents empties... not good *LOL*. If I back-browser and refresh the cart is back to "full" again and I can add more to it. BTW, refreshing the page (same filter name), of course, did nothing.

    So I know I've been changing code all over the place so I dump the modified site's database into a "clean" Max 1.7 setup... and, surprise, it happens there to. I'm thinking it's my data. Ah but now the interesting part... on the raw Max1.7 I test the manufacturers dropdown in the sidebar box... and it works fine! Again and again I try it... not a problem.

    Any suggestions? Why does one work and not the other? Oh well, I'm thinking about moving the sidebar Manufacturers 'filter' code to the top of the index_products page to see if it will work there. I know a bit about PHP programing so I can make changes... I did look at the code but I couldn't see where it may be flushing the shopping cart.

    More clarification... the "top" Manufacturer dropdown filter unwantingly resets the session id to nothing... while the "side" manufacturer dropdown filter does not. Paulo
