Hello, this is my first post! I am setting up vpasp (6.50) for a client and of course they need some customization. I'm not sure if this can be done. I currently have a search that will bring all products back for a vehicle (motorcycles) and I added the "shopaddtocart.asp" link which works fine. My question is would I be able to make a form on my page (which is outside of vpasp) to gather everything they checked, and send it all over to the shopping cart. so far I can just add one Example: catalogid=415&quantity=1
So it would need to take for example:

and they click "add all checked items to cart. I'm assuming this will be custom if at all doable?
Thanks in advance for any help!

it's possible to do that; what you can try is to switch on the productselect config option (which allows you to tick multiple products on the shopdisplayproducts.asp pages), and then do a view-source when displaying more than one product on shopdisplayproducts.asp; from that point you can see what the form tags and field names should be that can then get posted to shopaddtocart.asp

Another possibility could be to have something like this:
but that's only relevant if your customers know the product codes
example product codes to try that out with are:

Here is a simple form that adds multiple items to the cart. The information could be on query strings also.

<form name=testform method=Post action=shopproductselect.asp>
<input type=hidden name="quantity" value="2">
<input type=hidden name="quantity" value="1">
<input type=hidden name="processed0" value="7">
<input type=hidden name="processed1" value="8">
<input type=hidden name="prodindex" value="10">
<INPUT type=submit VALUE="Submit" name="Submit">

shopproductselect.asp handles multiple adds
Quantity is quantity for each product
Processed0 the value is catalogid for first product
processed1 the value is catalogid for next product
prodindex is maximum number of products (can be larger than really adding)
