We’re currently trying to work out a way to get a “Estimate Shipping Quote” link above our Cart icon to link to the Cart page and display the “Estimate Shipping Cost” pop up, as we’re having way too many people calling in asking about quotes when the functionality is already there, they’re just missing it.
If you check out http://test.poolsuppliescanada.ca you’ll see I’ve modified the cart_content.tpl file to display a link to a “getting a quote” page when the cart is empty, and a different link to the cart page when there is something in the cart (add any item and give it a try yourself!). That part is working.
Now, the problem is triggering the pop up/over window that lets you estimate shipping. I can trigger it by setting the link above the cart to /cart#opener_shipping_estimation_block, but there’s some bugs with this:
- Doesn’t seem to work every time
- Isn’t cross browser friendly
- If you close that pop up, and click that link again (without leaving the cart page) it does nothing
- It jumps the browser window to the bottom of the page
Any solutions to accomplish this without all the issues we’re experiencing? Any help would be a huge help!
