Firstly, I’d like shoppers to be directed to the cart page when they click ‘add to cart’.
I find the notification at the top let of a product added easily missable, but very cool none the less.
Secondly, 99% of my shoppers will only buy from my shop once so I’d like to cut down on a few things in the checkout.
I’d need the first section ‘Checkout Options’ where the shopper chooses if he want’s to log in or check out as a guest. I’d like that section gone and just assumes it’s a guest checkout unless logged in.
Then the Payment methods and Delivery methods sections to be combined.
Without these changes, I find the checkout quite needlessly long.
I’m not asking for the exact code here, just an indication of what file and pieces of code I should be looking at.
I’m surprised this hasn’t been asked before, I’m sure alot of people will find this helpful.
1) To redirect your customers to the cart page, when they hit “add to cart” button, open catalog/view/theme/shoppica/js/shoppica.js, find this piece of code:
You will need to register in order to post topics and read replies in the ThemeBurn.com support forums!
2) The templates are in catalog/view/theme/shoppica/template/checkout/. However the checkout functionality is a complex process and you could cut nothing, but some not required fields. We can’t help you much here and maybe OpenCart forums will be more suitable place to ask. The other options is to hire someone to do the job for you.
I have the same first question as stated above ”To redirect your customers to the cart page, when they hit “add to cart” button”, however I am forced to use the 1.4.9 theme (if only the auto_account.xml mod would work for the 1.5 version I would have upgraded right away……).
I noticed shoppica.js in 1.5 is different in the 1.4.9 version. I can’t find any clues where to add the ‘window.location=’index.php?route=checkout/cart’;’
Any clues would be greatly appreciated. PP.
@ppshop When you add a product to the cart in opencart 1.4, you are redirected to ‘index.php?route=checkout/cart’ so you really don’t need to modify nothing.
@James Pain We will get in touch with you as soon as we have a little more free time for custom work, but as for now it is extremely busy period and we really can’t take extra load. Very sorry for the inconvenience. I think there are quite a few people in the official opencart forums which do freelance – you could post your request there if you don’t want to wait for us.
