I have added VP-ASP to an existing website built using ASP. I would like to use the minicart. Is this possible? If so what code do I need to add to my pages to display the minicart? Thank you for your help

There are 2 formats you can use, and you just need to add the corresponding function name to wherever you want to show it (ie in shoppage_header.htm or shoppage_trailer.htm if it's a vpasp asp file, or wherever you want if it's not a vpasp file)

1) Big - add this inside your header or trailer file (or inside your main content if it's not a vpasp file) -
<% NavigateShowMiniCart "" %>

2) Small - add this inside your header or trailer file (or inside your main content if it's not a vpasp file) -
<% NavigateShowMiniCart "SHORT" %>


The colours/fonts etc are all set in shop$colors.asp in the Mini* settings.

If you want to tweak the logic/format, then it's in shopproductsubs.asp (just do a search for "Sub NavigateShowMiniCart" in there and you'll spot it)

If your asp is not a vpasp one, then just add this to the top line of your asp:
<!-- #include file="shop$db.asp" -->

(although if it is a non-vpasp file, then you'll need to ensure that it doesn't have a adovbs file included, as those values are already inside shop$db.asp)

Simon - thank you for your advice. I tried your suggestion but it did not work. I do use adovbs at the root so I tried eliminating the call to that in shop$db to no avail. Given the fact that adovbs is on the root level (and needs to be there) how can I add the minicart?

I'd do it the other way around I think; eliminate the adovbs include from the non-vpasp files and add shop$db.asp to the includes on those non-vpasp files. It'd have to be at the very top of the non-vpasp files, and you'll need to ensure that things like response.buffer and option explicit (if done) are coded above that and not re-iterated.
