Support » Plugins » woocommerce add to cart issue with child theme

  • Hello everyone,
    I have set up woocommerce plugin on Responsive theme and made some changes under its child. However, I am having some problem with “Add to Cart” function. I have checked “Enable AJAX add to cart buttons on archives” and “Redirect to the cart page after successful addition”.

    When I click on the Add to Cart button on Products page, js makes its trick and shows a spinning effect. When it is redirected to Cart page, there is a big surprise “Your cart is currently empty.”. However it works fine when I add the item on Single Product page but this time at the bottom of Checkout page, the payment options division freezes. The same spinning effect never disappears.

    I made some experiment and tore my hair off and finally I realised that it works fine when I switch to the original theme. I presume the child theme causes a AJAX problem. Is there anyone who can come up with a solution.

    P.s :I am working on my localhost.

  • Hi! Don’t know if you have already get that to work but if you don´t, here’s what happened to me and what makes the “Your cart is currently empty.” message appear.

    The problem is generated by the product cart template page, so make sure that:

    – You don´t have a file called “page.php” within your child theme folder (that will cause that all the pages, including the cart page take that as template)

    – The page is created and has the shortcode, go to: pages > cart, open it, it must contain the shortcode:


    Only that is needed! You don´t have to put anything more inside the page.

    Hope you can fix your problem, if it has not yet fixed, and sorry about my english, it’s my native one!
