"Droping items"

With the new cgi script the cart drops items when changing to another catagory. This was not happening with earlier versions. www.food-plots.com

John,

Does is happen every time? I went through your site a couple of times and no items dropped. You should see a test order.

I sent a more detailed description in an email. The problem seems to be that when someone uses my navigation menu to change catagories any items already in the cart get dropped. An example of how the navigation links are setup is as follows:

To goto the Specialty Seeds the link is:
http://www.food-plots.com/cgi-bin/suid/~wr/ustorekeeper.pl?command=goto&id=C2328096&rtn=&file=Specialty_Seeds.html

To goto the Tree section:
http://www.food-plots.com/cgi-bin/suid/~wr/ustorekeeper.pl?command=goto&id=C2328096&rtn=&file=Trees_and_Cover_Plants.html

If you use only the selection box the items are retained. This was not noticed in earlier testing. However this presents a BIG problem when we start getting calls from customers that tried to enter their $300 order online and give up in frustration.

It looks like I found the problem with what appeared to be dropping items when using the navigation menu on this site. With the original links there was an "ID" specified, when that variable was removed the navigation appears to work properly. My mistake.

An example of a first (bad) link is:
http://www.food-plots.com/cgi-bin/suid/~wr/ustorekeeper.pl?command=goto&id=C2328096&rtn=&file=Specialty_Seeds.html

a corrected version is :
http://www.food-plots.com/cgi-bin/suid/~wr/ustorekeeper.pl?command=goto&id=&rtn=&file=Specialty_Seeds.html

Perhaps this could be better explained in the reference section for creating links..

John,

I'm glad you got your site straightened out.

Thanks, Charlie Edmunds
