I just installed Maian Cart 3.7. Everything works fine except that I cannot log into the admin area. (Entering correct or incorrect or even NO credentials and then clicking "Login" simply reloads the login page with no error messages anywhere.) While I can pretty much manage the settings and adding products via phpmyadmin, for some things it can be easier to use the admin area. It's a 100% fresh installation. I though that I would ask here because it may be something that others have encountered and been able to fix using "one simple trick", haha.

[A FEW HOURS LATER]

I don't know if this is a bug or something wierd on my end. The domain on which I installed Maian Cart was an existing site at https://example.com; the site is set up to force https (so that if someone visits http://example.com/chips, they will be automatically redirected to https://example.com/chips

I disabled this (by commenting out the relevant line in my root htaccess file), was then able to log into the admin area, found "force SSL" to be set to "off" (that's the default setting, it seems), set it to "on", restored my original htaccess, and now all is well.

Also, I see there are quite a few new features since the last time that I tried Maian Cart (a couple of years ago). Excellent work, Mr Bennett.

Usually it's a problem with sessions on the server. So, on submit the session doesn't get created and so the page reloads. Apart from the password file being edited incorrectly, can't think what else it might be.

Should't affect anything. I have it set to force ssl on my test setups and there are no issues.

Thanks, glad you like it. smile

I'm sure that it was something "hacky" on my end, as I haven't been able to duplicate the issue.

A small suggestion :

In Maian Music, if someone adds an item to the basket that's already in the basket, it appears as two separate items in the basket, which makes sense since a person would VERY rarely intentionally order two of the same music items, especially downloads. And so it's a simple matter of clicking an "X" to remove one of the two items from the basket.

In Maian Cart, if one adds an item to the basket that's already added, it's still a single line item but "Qty: 2" is noted, and there seems to be no existing way to reduce the quantity to "1" (clicking the trash icon deletes the entire item from the basket). (Or, say if a person is ordering four pillows and changes their mind after seeing the subtotal and wants three, they have to delete the item from the cart and then go to find it again.) I would suggest the added feature of a + and - icon to increase or decrease the quantities in the cart. Amazon.com's way of doing it is to have a tiny dropdown menu with 1 through 9 and "delete" in it.

Are you requesting what is in the checkout shopping basket ( the +/- feature ) to also be available in the "popup" shopping basket screen? Just curious.

Yes, the quantity adjustment is on the checkout screen. I'm not planning to add it to the popup. But you have raised a good point about downloads, the quantity should remain static for those, so I will update that. Thanks. smile

Yes.

That's reasonable; I had set up a particular link so that someone who clicks on it goes to the product page AND

mc_addToBasket('x')

happens (when they land on the page, it loads and then the modal popup loads and the item is added to the cart, all with just one click on the previous page). If a person already has product X in their basket, they would then suddenly find themselves with 2 of said product, and no intuitive way to reduce it back to one.

I'm also trying to figure out a simple way to do the following : (ignore the syntax, of course) : if cart contains product X then Y (e.g., don't show button). But that becomes unnecessary if you eventually add that feature (option to make a static quantity). Oddly enough, setting both "min purchase" and "max purchase" to "1" didn't seem to have the desired effect.

The min/max just checks that both criteria are reached. It doesn't restrict the quantity to 1.
