We actually have a working version but have had some trouble with the ajax, which is why WP Ecommerce hasn’t yet been released. Everything works, but if you add an item to the cart you’ll have to go to another page before it updates. If you’re okay with that, I can upload a version for you to test.
Hey Patriot Ghost,
Here’s the beta version for you to download, this includes the WP Ecommerce integration. Let us know if that works for you!
Thanks Ewout! So I installed it but on my plugins page at the top, it shows a red banner that says “Menu Cart requires a shop plugin to be active” I have ecommerce upgraded to Gold cart installed and running perfectly. ?? Thanks for any help on this!
Looks like Ewout may have accidentally uploaded the wrong test version. How about this one instead? 🙂
Thanks, got it installed but it doesn’t give me the option to place in main menu under header, just on sidebar. My client REALLY wants it on right hand end of menu. Thanks for any help!!
Here are a couple things to check:
1. Make sure you’ve set a menu under the WordPress menu’s area and that it’s associated with the menu area of the theme underneath the header.
2. If that’s already the case, make sure that your theme is using the WordPress 3.0+ menu system.
Also, if you can provide a link to your site that would be very helpful for troubleshooting. 🙂
Okay I am using WP 3.5.1 for this site. I don’t know how to associate a menu to the area under the header as it already exists there. ?? Please advise and by the way, this forum/support is the BEST I have ever experienced. You guys rock.

I’m glad you appreciate our support. Feel free to give us a rating. 😉 Also, I think I may know the issue. Did you build this theme with Artisteer? Artisteer doesn’t properly register the menus with WordPress, therefore rending this plugin useless. However, I do know of a fix that I can send to you if this is your issue.
Yep nailed it – Artisteer. I figured. Yes please send the fix. And just point me to where I can give you a rating:)
Great, glad we got it figured out!
Start with this article: http://budstechshed.com/make-your-artisteer-menu-compatible-with-wp30/
The other guy that had this issue ended up sending me this response:
The only change I made was to replace the Artisteer menu function with the WordPress wp_nav_menu function in my themes header.php file, and now your cart icon is displayed! I went further and parsed the Artisteer style classes in the function, and now the menu renders exactly how I have set it up in Artisteer!
Hopefully these will get you started in the right direction. I’ll be unavailable for the next couple of hours but I’ll check in later to see if this worked for you.
Also, if you’d like to leave a rating you can be the first to do that here.
Okay 5 star rating is up and well deserved! I read the article and made the first change, but the second one worries me a bit because my header php code is a bit different than what the article shows and I don’t want to screw anything up. Not sure what do to next…?
Thanks PG! Do you have FTP access to your site? If so, could you download your theme that you created with Artisteer, zip it and email it to email@example.com? I can take a look at it as the change you need may not be in your header.php, but possibly in your functions.php.
Also, PG, here’s a link to another users issue with Artisteer that may help you understand it a bit better: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/problem-adding-custom-menu-function-to-artisteer-template?replies=2 Also, this is the article by WordPress: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_nav_menu
And it should be your header.php, so never mind sending the whole zip file. Just send me your header. 🙂
