Unit Price on Order Page
Author ronharter on 03-13-2001 at 19:21 (EST)
Did the function to show the Unit Price on the shopping cart get implemented in the latest version or is that still on the wish list?

Also, I don't think this is your problem but maybe you could help anyway. Many of our customer don't enter our site from the home page. They get to the site via search engines and come in through the back door to a product page. Is their anyway to make the page look to see if the left frame is showing and if not load it?

As of the latest 3.4 release, no, the ability to show the unit price on the shopping cart was not added. In fact, I'm not sure if that option has ever been listed on our "Future Features Wish List"... I'll check and if it isn't, will add it for future consideration.

As for ensuring that an individual HTML page is always displayed in a frame (regardless of how the page is linked to)... I think there is a trick for doing that... unfortunately, I can't remember it right now. I'll try to do a little HTML research later.

You actually bring up a very important point as customers don't always enter one's web site through the front door. Often my statistics show my client's sites in up to 1/3 of their users enter in through other web pages. This can be a nightmare for an e-commerce site where you have secondary product web pages that aren't linked to your uShop frameset. Here's 2 possible solutions.

First, you can place a "Home" button at the bottom of your rogue web pages not plugged into your uShop frame. You can call the button anything, here's a code sample:


Another solution is this simple Javascript. Cut and paste:

You need to replace the section that says FRAMESET PAGE NAME HERE with the name of the master page that has the appropriate uShop frameset information.

Also, be aware that if you use this JavaScript tag, people will be unable to use their browser's "Back" button to return to the preceding page unless they hit it quickly twice in succession. However, once they navigate to another page within your site, the Back button will work normally.

Lastly, also consider that major search engines, the majority of them, don't recognize frames and thus they will only read and index your main master frame page. Have you ever visited Yahoo and seen web site listings that said only this:

"Sorry! You need a frames-browser to view this site."

This is because one needs to add some content to your meta tags NOFRAMES tag so that the spidering search engines can read-in your other links on your site. There's lots of good information on this subject. Just visit Yahoo and enter "frame resources" without the quotes.

I hope this helps.

It's very wise when making your frame to use the NOFRAME
