I am building a site using CS-Cart to power the e-come side of the site (obviously) and using Wordpress as a CMS to build out the other pages (i.e. About, Contact, Blog, etc)

The client's current site is being run on Wordpress, so it would be easier just to add CS-Cart in a sub-directory (e.g. domain.com/store/) to the existing site instead of re-building the entire site in CS-Cart (a big part of the site is a blog, another reason why I'm sticking with Wordpress).

My question is, how can I add the quick-cart (small cart icon w/ items in cart, etc) to the Wordpress theme? Is there a widget available? Or does anyone know of another way I can go about this?

Thanks!

Why would you need to also implement Wordpress. CS-Cart provides content pages for your (somewhat) static content and a 'news' section which could easily be used as a blog.

The site is already built on Wordpress. I am adding CS-Cart to add e-com functionality. I don't want to rebuilt the entire site using a different platform.

Any suggestions on adding the quick cart as a widget outside the cs-cart platform?

wordpress has lots of functionality that cscart could never beat. On my wordpress site theres a module to show my ebay products, another to allow people to tweet the posts, another to translate all the post into different languages, another to show a calender.

It now built like cscart with blocks you can move by dragging around the screen.

Being technically inadequate I just have the two things totally separate. Wordpress is just in a subdirectory with links to each other on the front page of each. Sometime I will link a Wordpress post to a product page, but thats as far as i go. It did seem to improve my sales as when i stopped blogging my sales decreased. This could also have been to a couple other thing i did to the site at the same time though.

I took a couple hours and experimented with incorporating CS-cart and WordPress, and I think I've got it pretty seamless. Have a look and let me know what you think.

Looks pretty smooth but it doesn't seem to be working correctly except from the home page. For example, if you click on the blog from a product page, you get a missing page error.

Still, what you show is pretty much what I'd like to do.
