Hi all

Just like to introduce myself - I'm a web designer in the UK and have been 'doing the rounds' looking for the best ASP shopping cart to use for the platform for a client.

VP ASP is the best I've found, so I've decided to go with V.5 - my client has a pretty demanding brief, and many of the 'must-haves' are already in this software.

I've got a few very neat features to add and customisations to make, all of which I'll be happy to share.

I'm away for a long weekend but will be making a start next week - then it's full steam ahead and going for a mid August launch.

Any fellow developers out there will be welcome to pitch in, I think I'm going to need all the help I can get!

Welcome to VPASP
This is a member help member type forum so anything you need just ask one of us might know the answer and if not support is in the background waiting to help. The one thing I can tell you beyond everything is that VPASP Support gives 110% they are the best I have ran across in my years of Internet Development.

I welcome you - and look foward to chatting with you again

I too have a very demanding client and all his needs are covered in this application except one and I would love any help I can get on this topic---he wants a different shoppageheader for his 5 different main categories. That is the only snag I have left to launch his project.

[email protected] please email me any suggestions!

Hi

The feature you describe is also required by my clent - I have a few ideas on this and it should be straightforward to do.

I'll be making a start on my project tomorrow and will let you know a bit more in the next few days.

This is not abig project. The category id is passed to shopdisplayproducts.asp

You need need to replace
shoppageheader with
DoMyheaders cat_id

Create a subroutine at the bottom of the file

Sub domyheaders (categoryid)
select case categoryid
case "1"
%><!--#include file="header1.htm"--><%
case "2"
%><!--#include file="header2.htm"--><%
case else
shoppageheader
end select
end sub

This has not been formally tested

You cannot use include statements mixed with asp as the include files are included before any asp code is executed. Hence the case statement will not work.

Maybe you could just open shopheaders.asp and add extra sub routines for each category. Example paste this below the last line in shopheaders.asp:

Sub MyCategoryHeader1
%>
<!-- #include file="MyCategoryHeader1.htm" -->
<%
end sub
%>
Sub MyCategoryHeader2
%>
<!-- #include file="MyCategoryHeader2.htm" -->
<%
end sub
%>


Then use the subroutine in shopdisplayproducts.asp "support" posted above but twinked just a little like so.

Sub domyheaders (categoryid)
select case categoryid
case "1"
MyCategoryHeader1
case "2"
MyCategoryHeader2
case else
shoppageheader
end select
end sub

Just a thought, sorry but I have not tested this before making the post.

This is real easy provided you are using IIS5 or above.

Setup - make sure you have a default page "shopheader.htm" that will be shown when no categoryID exists. Then have a "shopheader[n].htm" for each categoryID. Here is the easy part:
<%
dim header
header = "shopheader" & categoryid & ".htm"
Server.Execute(header)
%>

You could modify this code to check categoryID for a value but if categoryID is null then the shopheader.htm would execute. Each shopheader page would have to be self contained (see http://msdn.microsoft.com help on Server.Execute).
