[Plugin: WordPress eCommerce - MarketPress] Problem with checkout/cart function not working (13 posts)

    I just recently downloaded the plugin and love it -- it seems to fit everything I want to do. I have had a few problems that I was hoping someone could help with.

    1) When I get to the Cart page, nothing seems to be loading

    2) It says it's having a problem connecting to my paypal 10002 - Security error - Security header is not valid

    3) The icons seem to overlap with the font in some places

    If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it. I really love what the plugin seems to offer but just would like some assistance. Here's a link for you to take a look:

    Hiya,

    The first two errors are most likely related. Make sure you have your information set up correctly in terms of being on a 'live' or 'sandbox' install.

    As for the icons overlapping, try adding the following wherever you're adding custom CSS for your theme:

    .mp_cart_contents th.mp_cart_col_product { padding-left: 25px !important; }
    .mp_cart_contents th.mp_cart_col_price { padding-left: 25px !important; }
    .mp_cart_contents th.mp_cart_col_quant { padding-left: 25px !important; }

    That should fix it for ya.

    Let me know how it goes! :)

    Hey Mason,
    That first changed fixed it perfectly, thanks!

    As for the CSS, I went into edit the plugin, but couldn't figure out where to put that. Would I be editing the code of the plugin?

    Would it be this file? wordpress-ecommerce/marketpress.php

    I also wanted to change the background color for the "buy now" and "checkout now" buttons because they blend in with the background color of my site. Which file in the plugin should I go to edit that?

    Sorry, a few other questions.

    Would I be able to create a dropdown menu that allows people to choose the size of the shirt they want to buy?

    Also, where can I delete the "have a user account" option? I think that somewhat confuses people since we don't have those.

    Sorry for all the questions. The help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hiya,

    Would I be editing the code of the plugin?

    We wouldn't advise editing the plugin code as that would get overwritten during each update. Many themes provide a spot for custom CSS or the use of a child theme can be helpful.

    Your main themes style.css file can also be used, but would be the last option as it, too, would be overwritten during a theme upgrade.

    Wherever you decide to do this, you'll also simply include styling for the buy now and checkout now buttons as well.

    Would I be able to create a dropdown menu that allows people to choose the size of the shirt they want to buy?

    Product variation is available in the admin for each product. A dropdown display on the front end is not something we provide for in MarketPres (yet). You'd have to have something custom developed for that. Someone familiar with CSS should be able to assist you with that fairly easily.

    Also, where can I delete the "have a user account" option? I think that somewhat confuses people since we don't have those.

    Within the plugin we make the signup portion optional, but we don't provide the ability to completely disable the signup/login form in the plugin options. For now, this would have to be custom coded either as an add-on to the plugin or blocked from displaying on the front end.

    Thanks!

    Hey Mason,
    I just updated the plugin last night, and all of a sudden everything on the left sidebar got wiped out and instead just the shopping cart appeared. My guess is a new setting with the plugin adds a shopping cart widget to the left sidebar. All my coding on the left sidebar is manual, with no widgets.

    Do you think that's what's going on? Is there anything I could do to fix it?

    Thanks

    Hiya,

    I just went to your site and didn't see the plugin there any longer. I really have to see what's going on in order to diagnose the issue.

    That being said, the changes released in the latest version were all pretty minor - I can't imagine it messing up your site that way, but again, we'll take a look with ya.

    Thanks!

    Hey Mason,
    Thanks so much for the help. I just re-activated the plugin. You'll see everything was wiped out from the left sidebar except the shopping cart. Here's the homepage link:

    And the product link:

    Thank you so much for the help

    Hiya,

    OK, I can now see the issue on your site. I'm not able to recreate it on any of my test installs though - so I'm betting it's definitely something to do with the theme.

    Is there a link to this theme somewhere so I can download and test it? It looks to be based on the Daily Digest theme:
    http://www.wpthemes4free.com/664-wordpress-theme-daily-digest-2/

    But I'm not able to re-create the issue even with this theme. Also, I'm correct in assuming you do NOT have a MarketPress widget loaded in the left-hand sidebar in admin, correct? (gotta check).

    Thanks!

    Hey Mason,
    It's the Daily Digest theme 3.0. Here is a link to it:

    http://wordpressthemesbase.com/detail/931.html

    Correct, I do not have a widget loaded in the sidebar.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hiya,

    Yeah, I've got that same theme loaded up without any issues. Mine does look a little different, however. I don't have a top nav menu for instance.

    Have you made any custom modifications to this theme?

    Yes, the nav bar was a customization. The left sidebar also is all hand script, no widgets.

    The previous version of the plugin worked perfectly. Do you suggest uploading that one instead?

    Thanks Mason

    I'm not able to recreate this issue on my install - so it's difficult to diagnose.

    If the older version worked for you, that may be the result. I'm still thinking there's something odd in the theme that is causing this... I mean, why only that left sidebar?

    Up to you though, if the old version get's the job done you can just rollback. Otherwise, we'll need to continue digging a bit into what's causing this for you.
