Adding a Link to top of pages for Checkout or Shopping Cart

I think I had already asked this question or possible suggested it but can't seem to find it.

I would like to see (especially on the products pages or other pages that are produced via Marketpress) A Checkout or Shopping Cart Button that would take you to your Cart as well as a continue Shopping Button on the checkout page that would return you to the Store

Any and all help is appreciated.

    Greetings Dean,

    Regarding the Checkout or Shopping Cart Button, this could be handled by simply coding in the button or link or using the short code where applicable [mp_cart_link] - Displays a link or url to the current shopping cart page.

    Personally I would consider coding it into the header of my theme so it appears on every page or maybe even get wild and code it into the Floating Social plugin like I have done with our Live Support script:

    The continue shopping button would be even easier since there would be only one page to have to code it into with a link back to the store.

    However, I will go ahead and alert the lead developer of the Market Press plugin to these what would considered to currently be Feature requests and move this ticket to feature requests.

    You may also want to voice your request here:

    The more popular a request is and the more votes it gets, the more likely it will be considered.

    It might have already been suggested. It is worth a quick search to add your votes before submitting a new suggestion.

    Alternatively, you could see if there is a developer available at wpmu jobs who could get onto it right this minute.

    Cheers, Joe

    Normally it's excpected you have the cart widget enabled. This has those quick links. Without it you will definitely need to do some customization. You could put it in your navigation as a custom link too.

    In a future version I'll see about adding some in some places.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
