Default Continue Shopping -> Redirect to product

Let's enable in General Settings -> Redirect customer to cart after adding a product.

If you want to come back to the product you just added to cart, after pressing Continue Shopping, do the following modifications:

In XC 4.4.2 root find product.php. At the end of the file, before:

Code:
func_display('customer/home.tpl', $smarty);

add the following code lines:

Code:
define('STORE_NAVIGATION_SCRIPT', 'Y'); $smarty->assign('navigation_script', 'product.php?productid=' . $productid);

We can go further adding in General Settings a check box: Redirect to product page.

if (redirect to cart enabled && redirect to productpage enabled)
pressing Continue Shopping go back to product page

This is the place you should make the changes:

$smarty->assign('navigation_script', 'product.php?productid=' . $productid);

that productid has associated a categoryid and a manufacturerid. Change product.php with category.php ...

I don't see it relevant to go in Manufacture page after pushing continue shopping button.

Default Re: Continue Shopping -> Redirect to product

What did you use for replacing this 'product.php?productid=' . $productid"?

Here is what QT replied inside the bugtracker (http://bugtracker.qtmsoft.com/view.php?id=38084)

*****************
As a result of discussion it was decided to implement this as follows:

- customer adds a product from the home page -> it redirects him to home page
- customer adds a product from the search results page -> it redirects him to the same search results (with page number and search conditions as it was before)
- customer adds a product from the category page -> it redirects him to that category (page number is kept)
- customer adds a product from the product details page -> it redirects him to home, category, or search results page the customer was browsing last time

We do not see any reason to forward a customer to the same product page when click on the Continue shopping button. That product is already in cart.
*****************

My personal opinion is X-Cart should let the administrator to decide from a few options where to redirect the customer.

Default Re: Continue Shopping -> Redirect to product

Wouldn't just replacing the onclick javascript code from

Code:
onclick="javascript: self.location = '/DEVELOPMENT/xcart/home.php?cat=7&sort=orderby&sort_direction=0'; if (event) event.cancelBubble = true;">
to
Code:
onclick="javascript:history.back()"
for the continue shopping button?

I'm sure sure what your button code is exactly in the version you are using but it worked great in 4.1.8 and I was going to edit it in my 4.4.5 test version as well to see if it works.

This actually is not good as in some cases will not work as intended. For example - customer adds to cart and then logs out or session expires. Customer logs in again and XC will redirect him/her to the cart because cart is not empty (default XC behaviour). Customer hits the "continue shopping" button - using the js history function customer will be redirected back to the login screen - not good at all.

That is a very good point. Didn't think of that at all.
