I've been working on a few VP projects - and have wanted the flexibility to use different header/trailer templates on different pages - i.e. on the products page, cart page, and on different bespoke pages.

How it's done:

1. Open shopheaders.asp and add a new sub - e.g:

Sub ShopPageTrailer2
<!-- #include file="shoppage_trailer32.asp" -->
end sub

(note - ShopPageTrailer2)

2. On the page - i.e. shopaddtocart.asp

Locate the sub that loads the header/trailer :-

' Sub display form
Sub DisplayForm()
If Serror<>"" then
shopwriteerror serror
end if
arrCart = GetSessA("CartArray")
scartItem = GetSess("CartCount")
end sub

Then change ShopPageTrailer to ShopPageTrailer2

And that's it. You can add multiple subs for headers/trailers and get much more flexibility on the design - instead of using the same files for all pages/sections.

Hope this is useful.
