Support » Plugin: WP eCommerce » Shopping Cart Widget just shows "Loading…"

  • Resolved PaulCutcliffe


    Store URL:
    WordPress version: 3.5.1
    WP e-Commerce version:
    Gold Cart version: 2.9.7
    Theme: Artisteer Generated Custom Theme

    I did this: I upgraded WP-Ecommerce to the latest version this morning.

    I expected WP e-Commerce to do this: I expected the shopping cart widget to display correctly, as it did previously.

    Instead it did this: Instead, it just displays “Loading…”. When you add something to the cart, it displays correctly until you switch pages or reload the current page, then it goes back to displaying “Loading…”

    Hi Paul,

    I’d be happy to help you investigate this issue – shoot me an email at and we’ll go from there.


    Same problem here with MIO theme

    kmg454 – if you’d like to email me a link to your website, I’d be happy to see what the issue might be.

    The issue was a compatbility problem with WP e-commerce and the MIO theme. Interactive pixels has updated the theme and everything is working fine now.

    Thanks Justin, although I’ve now realised it was because of the caching plugin I was using – WP Super Cache. If I disable the caching plugin, the widget displays fine. 🙂

    I guess WP-Ecommerce sites aren’t ideal for use with caching?

    E-Commerce and Caching in general is a mix of art and science – we do our best, but we’re always trying to improve here. Any actionable bugs and issues should be reported on GitHub, we’d love the experience and general compatibility to be as awesome as possible.

    Hi guys,

    Having the same problem…

    @justin – Did you find a solution for this that you can share?

    Update: After reading the Github post regarding the cache, it seems to be a complex problem to fix.

    If by any change there’s a viable solution for this, it would be great to know.

    Thanks a lot!



    BobbySlingShot – I just disabled caching. Luckily I ruin a dedicated server that performs okay, so it’s not too much of an issue for me.

    Update: Actually, whilst I have been known to ruin servers before, I actually meant that I ‘run’ a dedicated server, rather than ruin one. 🙂

    (Could just have corrected my typo, but since it actually me me snigger, I thought I’d do it this way!)
