    Hi all. Can anyone point me to a little more instruction on creating an HTML template for the cart (not the customer email). Perhaps a sample? I cannot locate advanced technical instruction on Mals site, is it there? Thanks in advance.

    It all depends on what you want in the form/button. See my forms site.

    Having trouble with a form or need one building?
    Fast turnaround, but I do charge :)

    Mal's Forms / Scripts and the syntax are here.

    take a look at www.suzet.net

    the template is a page like all other pages without products
    and includes the {head} and the {cart}

    Thanks GT, I use your scripts extensively in my cart process. Suzet you directed me to your site. Right now, I do not have an HTML template for my check out page. So the products are in the top of the page and the "Checkout" buttons are way at the bottom. If I create a template as you did, then the default layout of the cart contents, shipping fields, etc. would "squeeze" into a more narrow area?

    MB the best thing to do is play with it until you get a look you like. Many people copy their website code and insert {head} and the {cart} where they want it to show up at.

    I think I am getting it now. So, I cannot control the layout of the cart fields, correct? I can't move the "checkout button" up closer to the cart total, etc.? But I can design above, below and side to side of the {cart} guts?

    Thanks all, I have now successfully employed this template. With the help of your advice, my work on this was complete in just a few hours (design fussing). On to my next question!
