Is there a shortcode for me to display up on top of the site how many items in the shopping cart? here is an image example:

    I suppose I want to know if there is a widget for VIew Shopping Cart that displays number of items in cart and total amount thus far. Is this not a feature. I notice that there is a pluggin that does something similar, that plugin is Marketpress floating Cart, but I just don’t wnat my item to float. I just want it to be there on top of the page.above the header such as the screenshot that i submitted above.

    This is the link to the Marketpress floating cart that you guys offer. I want to put something like this in my widget area that I already have anywhere I choose, how do I do this. I am a newbie and not used to code.

    i want this without the floating part, just static. thanks.

    Hiya @marketpress9

    Nice username :slight_smile:

    The Floating Cart plugin was created and is provided by another member. It is not a WPMU DEV product.

    MarketPress does come with a shopping cart widget that you can use anywhere you have widget area.

    Unfortunately there is not a shortcode for that function. To add thethat to your theme, you would need to dive into the code. Are you comfortable doing that?

    Hello Patrick.

    Thanks for the response. I would be comfortable doing that. can you tell me how to add that widget that displays that information. Which files do I need to modify and can you give me more details please. So long I have you guys to ask questions, I am up for the challenge.

    Thanks and looking forward to the response.

    if you have marketpress with just barebone basics and want to allow us to customize it, you guys have to give a little documentation, i don’t find documentation for marketpress no where on the site. why would i hire a developer if i can do it. but if you don’t give documentation how do you want me to expand on marketpress to make it suit my needs.

    Hi again @marketpress9

    Sorry for the delay in response to this topic… we’ve been a little short-staffed these past few weeks. :slight_frown:

    There is actually a function built-in to MarketPress for that. The GridMarket child-theme of FrameMarket displays it dynamically in the header. If you like, you can download the theme free here:

    To add the shopping cart to your current theme, simply call the mp_show_cart function where you want it to display, like so (edit the div class to anything you like):

    <div class="my_cart_widget">
    <?php echo mp_show_cart('widget'); ?>

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
