Topic: WordPress Cart66 Lite shopping cart plugin
WordPress version: 3.2.1
Cart66 Lite version: 1.1.6

Problem: Unnecessary “PayPal Express Checkout Is Not Configured” error message is being displayed on the Checkout page. But it doesn’t need to be displayed because I’m only using PayPal Standard Checkout.

Solution: WordPress Admin > Pages > Checkout > change [checkout_paypal_express] to [checkout_paypal]

WordPress Child Theme – WP e-Commerce: Move Product Title to Description Column

Overview: Move Product Title from above the Product image, to above the Product details section.

Note 1: WP e-Commerce version: 3.8; WordPress version: 3.1.1
Note 2: All of the WP e-Commerce theme files were first moved to the Child Theme folder via WP e-Commerce’s backup option.

Solution: Move the H2 code from it’s current ImageCol section to the beginning of the ProductCol section.

Edit: root > wp-content > themes > eurolensbath > wpsc-products_page.php

Move the H2 block, lines 68-74:

[php]<h2 class="prodtitle entry-title">
<?php if(get_option(‘hide_name_link’) == 1) : ?>
<?php echo wpsc_the_product_title(); ?>
<?php else: ?>
<a class="wpsc_product_title" href="<?php echo wpsc_the_product_permalink(); ?>"><?php echo wpsc_the_product_title(); ?></a>
<?php endif; ?>

To just inside the ProductCol section:

[php highlight=”7,8,9,10,11,12,13″]<div class="productcol">
do_action(‘wpsc_product_before_description’, wpsc_the_product_id(), $wp_query->post);
do_action(‘wpsc_product_addons’, wpsc_the_product_id());
<!– Moved the H2 code from above the Product Image, to here – which is at the beginning of the Product details column. –>
<h2 class="prodtitle entry-title">
<?php if(get_option(‘hide_name_link’) == 1) : ?>
<?php echo wpsc_the_product_title(); ?>
<?php else: ?>
<a class="wpsc_product_title" href="<?php echo wpsc_the_product_permalink(); ?>"><?php echo wpsc_the_product_title(); ?></a>
<?php endif; ?>
<div class="wpsc_description">
<?php echo wpsc_the_product_description(); ?>
</div><!–close wpsc_description–>[/php]

@getshopped WP e-Commerce *live* shopping cart testing going great! Manual & CC purchases working beautifully

Had to make a minor adjustment to the paypal_multiple.php file in the merchants folder. When making a PayPal or Credit Card purchase I was receiving an “Order Pending” message on the Transaction Results page, as well as in the customer’s email notification. This problem seems to be solved. More info to follow if all checks out.

Here’s what I did to get things working with the WP e-Commerce/GetShopped plugin. Note: this info may be outdated by the time you read this.

*Live* shopping cart testing is working great so far for both Credit Card and manual purchases:) I haven’t tested any digital downloads yet.
