Default 3.5.4 Mini Cart gives wrong number of items

I saw this mentioned before with regards to earlier versions. Mini cart is showing groups of items as one item e.g. added 3 x product to cart and mini cart says 1 item. Is this by design?

Thanks

Dan

Well it doesn't look right. If I have a total quantity of 6 items in my cart I expect to see "6" in the mini cart -what's the point in having the mini cart if it doesn't match up to the main cart? I've mailed X-Cart about this.

Thanks

Dan

Please let us know what x-cart tells you for a fix on this. I've never noticed it in all the stores I've done, but it's been there as far back as 3.3.x

Thanks,
Cameron

It's the total number of different products not the total quantity of individual items in the cart.

3 x Red Balloons is only 1 item.
3 x Red Balloons and 2 x Blue Balloons is 2 items.

This was done with 3.5.4, customer/minicart.php:

Code:
x_session_register ("cart"); $MINICART["total_cost"] = price_format(0); $MINICART["total_items"] = 0; if (!empty($cart)) { if (!empty($cart["total_cost"])) $MINICART["total_cost"] = $cart["total_cost"]; #$MINICART["total_items"] = ((!empty($cart["products"]) and is_array($cart["products"]))?count($cart["products"]):0) + ((!empty($cart["giftcerts"]) and is_array($cart["giftcerts"]))?count($cart["giftcerts"]):0); if(!empty($cart["products"])) { foreach($cart["products"] as $key => $value) { $MINICART["total_items"] += $value["amount"]; } } } $smarty->assign("minicart_total_cost", $MINICART["total_cost"]); $smarty->assign("minicart_total_items", $MINICART["total_items"]);

This code actually loops over the cart array products index, and finds the amount and adds them up to return a true number of items.

Thanks Boomer, I'll give that a shot. I still think the mini cart should show the total quantity of items by default. I'll see what X-Cart say. I think they must be busy at the moment as they've not replied to my mails for a while.

Thanks again

Dan

Hi,

This doesn't include gift vouchers in the total no products though, so you need an additional line after the loop ....

after ...

Code:
if(!empty($cart["products"])) { foreach($cart["products"] as $key => $value) { $MINICART["total_items"] += $value["amount"]; } }


Put in this line to fix this ....

Code:
$MINICART["total_items"] += ((!empty($cart["giftcerts"]) and is_array($cart["giftcerts"]))?count($cart["giftcerts"]):0);

I used this in 4.0.4 (Thanks Boomer), but my "Total" still says $0.00 no matter how many items are in the cart.

This changes when you "View Cart" or "Checkout", but I don't want to redirect to cart for the customer as our average order has 8-10 items.

Does anyone know how to get the total (sub-total) to show in the minicart?

Thanks,

Mike
