When I push the addtocart button from shopexd.asp, the shopper is always directed to shopaddtocart.asp.

Is there any possibility to avoid this?

I would prefer to go to the shopdisplayproducts.asp page related to the ordered product. If this is not possible, I would rather go to the shopdisplaycategories.asp page instead of shopaddtocart.

Are there any thoughts or workarounds about this or some hints to tweak the code? Has somebody already succeeded in realizing this?

xproductstayonpage Yes or No
If Yes, when a product is ordered from the shopdisplayproducts page, the current page remains showing. If you are using the mini-cart display, that display will be automatically updated to show what is in the cart.

I wanted this too, as if you're trying to cross-sell products from the extended description, there's a chance the opportunity will be lost when the page changes to the shopping cart.

I had a poke around and came up with this mod to implement stay on page from shopexd.

Open shopfileio and goto line 1112 (approx), which is the start of the sub Handle_FormEnd. Insert the following before the line WriteForm "</form>":

'DH: add stayonpage to extended description
dim stayonpage, url
If stayonpage="Yes" then
url="shopexd.asp?id=" & catalogid
Response.Write "<input type=""hidden"" name=""returnurl"" value=""" & url & """ />"
end if
'DH end stayonpage mod

Seems to work fine, but no guarantees - I'm not really an asp programmer.

Hi Windsurfer

you caught me there - couldn't remember this. Anyway, tried it on another site I'm working on and it worked fine. This site's still v6.5, though I can't immediately see why this should matter.

You have set Xproductstayonpage to yes? (sorry if that's too obvious)
