Integrate CS-Cart into WP

24 February 2012 - 01:19 PM

Howdy forumites. I have a website Oceanadrycleaners.co.uk - which I'll be outfitting with a small shop. Now since the template stays the same for the Wordpress theme and the actual shop - I want to integrate the WP-Header and footer into the CS-Cart install - keeping one dropdown ('Shop') with a list of all the categories in the Wordpress and CS-Cart install.

Now so far the only solution I can think of is to create a custom foreach loop for WP and/or CS-Cart - if time-savvy I think I'll create a WP version which loads a stripped down shop (via a get variable - like ?wp-ver or summit).

Of course I'll need to back up the Shopping cart with similar code so that anyone who accesses the cart directly will see the same thing - maybe use a .htaccess to redirect any attempts to get directly to the shop.


I'm open to ideas.

General Intro Rant

Hi everyone - in the spirit of community-dom I signed up for the Cs-Cart forum. To me CS-Cart is a deliciously flexible system which constantly gives me trouble (howz that for an oxymoron XD!) but it has helped me so much with two projects..with the aims of using it with a third.

I hope I can contribute to the forums somewhat and likewise look forward to helping out.

A couple of questions - like tbirnseth mentioned in a previous post..why is CS-cart so hidden? Even x-cart (a total cs-cart looking clone) gets more exposure...

Anyone got any web guides or book recommendations in getting started on shopping cart design (like infrastructure etc...)?
