show cart page not in a pup up while not using product browser


Hello ecwid,

as you know, in case the page has only "add to bag" button or "mini cart" widget and there is no "product browser" widget, the cart opens in a dynamic popup.

is it possible somehow to control the cart container so it would not be styled as popup but would placed normaly like would in the product browser?

The recommended way to overcome this is to install the product browser somewhere on your site, and then point to that page using this option: http://kb.ecwid.com/w/page/15853260/...ductBrowserURL . Then the 'popups' will not appear, and instead the browser will automatically follow to the page you pointed to and proceed with the product browser in that page.

yes, I knew it and mentioned in the question. having product browser on a page eliminates any sense to have "custom" product catalog as don't see purpose to have both.

I know it's possible to hide button "continue shopping" that would lead to product list, but the page still would exist... I could block ecwid script on cateogy and product location modes, but it would look like a hack to me... why there is no some standard solution for this? Why not using certain token to tell you want to open it in a popup or put in a certain html container or to tell that the browser is used only to display the cart - not the catalog (aka cart widget instead of product browser widget)?

I was talking about embedding a product browser on another page and redirecting your customer there. That can be done with ecwid_ProductBrowserURL option.

However, if you want to have the bag and checkout on the same page, but the other parts of the shop completely hidden, you can do the following trick:

1. Embed a product browser widget onto the page in question.
2. Add the following code to your Ecwid CSS theme:
Code:
div.ecwid-productBrowser{
	display: none;
}

div.ecwid-productBrowser.ecwid-productBrowser-CartPage,
div.ecwid-productBrowser.ecwid-productBrowser-CheckoutShippingAddressPage,
div.ecwid-productBrowser.ecwid-productBrowser-CheckoutPaymentDetailsPage,
div.ecwid-productBrowser.ecwid-productBrowser-CheckoutPlaceOrderPage,
div.ecwid-productBrowser.ecwid-productBrowser-OrderConfirmationPage {
	display: block;
}
It will hide all pages of product browser, except for checkout steps. Generally, it will look like this: when the 'Continue shopping' button is pressed, the bag / checkout is just hidden.

3. I would also recommend to add the minicart widget to the page - this way your customers can proceed to the bag and checkout pages at any moment.

Hello,

Ecwid team is back with tremendous news!

We have changed the behavior of the ‘Continue shopping button’, if our Single Product widget is added on the website. The button used to open the whole store in the popup, but now it closes the popup, and leaves customers to browse your website.

Customer used to open up the popup with the content of their shopping bag, and having checked that, wanted to come back to browsing the website he was on. However, clicking ‘Continue shopping’ button, did not return the customer to the website. Instead of that, he would see the whole store in that same popup. That behaviour caused a lot of frustration, because the customer usually wants to come back to the initial website.


Moreover, among many reasons for using Single Product widget, was that merchants do not want their customers seeing the whole store at all.

We want to let you know, that the Ecwid developers team, working very hard, has changed the behavior of the ‘Continue shopping’ button. Now, thanks to your feedback, ‘Continue Shopping’ button closes the popup.

Check it out, and reach out to us, if you have any questions.

Thank you!
