Support » Plugin: IDB Ecommerce (wpStoreCart 5) » [Plugin: wpStoreCart – Ecommerce Plugin for WordPress] Basic Functions Not Working

  • Resolved lexymonster


    To give a short timeline of how my error occurred:
    I have a plugin to help control the Check Out Widget with WPStoreCart (Widget Logic).

    I simply went into the admin to adjust the pages it is displayed on.

    Then I decided to go through the Store Settings to make sure it looked alright to me. The only thing I changed was added a page to house View Orders, and disabled the Add to Cart buttons to automatically redirect.

    Now with a few standard settings changes, the store page is no longer displaying the categories to which the shortcode is telling them to (instead it is just displaying all the products), and if you click on Checkout, the Checkout page is actually displaying all of the products… not showing any of the actual checkout fields.

    As a quick fix, I’m using the widget’s checkout button as the Final Checkout, to bypass the checkout page all together.

    It looks like the shortcodes aren’t working correctly and not pulling the right information.

    I’m absolutely confused.. and any help is greatly appreciated.

    If you have any other suggestions for a simple store solution that you can see would work for me.. that is even more appreciated.

    Here is the website:

    Here is the checkout page:

  • When working with shortcodes, disable the WYSIWYG editor and then redo your shortcodes. It will then function correctly.

    Yes, as jmerrit alluded, your shortcodes stopped functioning correctly because the WYSIWYG editor is stripping out your parameters, such as category id, etc. You need to disable the WYSIWYG editor when working with shortcodes, and anytime you will be saving a POST/PAGE that uses shortcodes.

    Wow. That is a very good thing to know. Hah. I installed the WYSIWYG so others could easily update their site with updates. I had no idea it would affect short codes.

    Thank you so much for helping!
