"Weight Total"
Posted by ronharter on Aug-21-00 at 04:06 PM (EST)
I wonder if it would be possible to put a column that would show the total weight of all items in the cart on the display_cart.html page.

I could then put a link to the UPS site where the customer could compare shipping costs such as UPS ground or UPS second day air.

It would also be nice if the customer could then enter this cost as the shipping charge manually.

Thanks

The only option available right now is the ability to display a column with the weight for each individual item in the cart....but there is no option to display a new row with the total weight of the order at this time.

I'll add it to our future features wish list and see if we can get it into a future update.

Thinking about it some more, I thought I might mention a couple custom options that you may want to look into yourself:

1) There is a JavaScript API called "getTotalWeight()" that can be used to get the total weight of the order. To use it, you would basically have to add the "uShopJSI" applet to your store pages - possibly the page with the "uShopOrderButton" applet on it - and then write a JavaScript to access the total weight via the call:

document.uShopJSI.getTotalWeight()

...and then display it. But again, this would have to be done on the same page as the "uShopOrderButton" applet - which is the point just before the order process begins - but not exactly the most ideal place for it.

2) The other option is to customize the ushop.pl script as needed. You can access the total weight in that script via the global variable:

$totals_total_weight

...but I'm still not sure exactly where in the order process it would be displayed nicely such that the customer can perform a UPS rate lookup. Perhaps, just via a popup window on the order form...

3 . "Remove the weight column"
Posted by Heather on Feb-16-01 at 02:57 PM (EST)
Hi Bill,

You guys have solved my problems on how to define certain products free shipping by entering the "subtotal table" into the "weight table" and entering the price in the weight parameter.

This works great.

Now all I have to do is remove the weight column after they "begin the order process".

How do I do that?
Am I overlooking something somewhere?

You can hide the WEIGHT column after the customer "begins the order process" by setting the "cart_show_weight" parameter of the uShopOrderButton applet to "NO":

< PARAM NAME="cart_show_weight" VALUE="NO" >
