Shopping cart empty bug – how do I fix it? Its an amazon affiliate website. on and off there is a bug where after clicking ad to chart then checkout it returns the page /checkout and says your shopping cart is empty. Ive tried many things. Ive removed all the plugins but still not luck. Ive re-installed them and turned them off for the min but still no luck. However if you then click around on the site e.g. "home" it re-populates the cart (in the bar at the top) and you can then click it and checkout...

    I have, but nothing is fixing the issue.

    I was hoping the theme developers could take a look somehow

    It’s when you click on checkout too quickly.

    It’s a hosting thing if you ask me, how the script is run and php sessions. If run using apache-mod_php all is tickety boo but using FCGld ( fast cgi ) this can happen.

    Hassle your hoster until they get off their butts and look at it and give you a positive answer.

    yeh some times the ajax is slow to click in so the user clicks so fast the site hasnt had chance to update the basket and they are already moving packages.

    Isn’t fact-cgi supposed to be ‘fast’?

    lol, apache-mod_php is faster but creates some possible security issues ( apparently )

    All my systems default to fast cgi and hardly ever a problem, just this empty basket quirk at times, it seems to come and go, the mind boggles.

    Nginx with fast cgi is meant to be faster but never tried it.

    I am having a similar issue. When a “guest user” adding items into the shopping cart, the shopping cart counter and price on the sub-menu are messed up. They don’t add up right. And when I click on the cart icon, it says my cart is empty. But It will still say I have something and price in my cart on the sub-menu next to the cart icon. I can’t get to it and delete them because when I click it, it says I have nothing in my cart.

    Any one having a similar issue?

    Are you using caching?

    Also are you adding to your cart and clicking checkout too quickly?

    I heard shopperpress and ajax requests to the server are the issue.

    I just turned off all plug-in and did a test. I am not using caching. The result is negative.

    As a guest user (not logged in), I add a few items in my shopping cart, they show up in my sub-menu bar, where the icon is, but only under a few main menu bar. If I go to another main menu, the shopping cart tells me I have 0 items. When I click the shopping cart icon, it says I have nothing. I can not remove them because I can not get to them.

    The other big problem is, when a guest user add items to shopping cart, another guest user from another computer can see the items in their shopping cart.

    Can you also explain what is ajax? I am kind of new to all these.

    How did you fix the problem on your site?

    There was a glitch in the wp-super-cache plugin. Deactivating it did not work. Removing it fixed the problem after all.

    Hi all,
    I fixed the problem.
    Just General Setup> Top Navigation. Select html view under Headert Layout.
    Then select menu+cart layout under Main Menu tab.
    Save and ok.

    If any problematic, then knok me here.
