    We are having our webpages converted to mobile pages via the Duda platform. We've had good success with the page conversions, but the Mal's shopping cart return URL creates a problem returning the shopper to the originating webpage. Our page sends the shopper to Mal's cart with: http://www.ourcompany.com/ourwebpage.html
    Here's the issue, the (empty) shopping cart sends the shopper back with this Return Shopping URL which confuses the mobile page: http://www.ourcompany.com/ourwebpage.html?qty=0.00&sub=0.00&shp=0.00&dis=0.00&vch=0.00&tax=0.00&tot=0.00&unt=0&sd=
    Is there a way to strip out this bit from the Return?: qty=0.00&sub=0.00&shp=0.00&dis=0.00&vch=0.00&tax=0.00&tot=0.00&unt=0&sd=
    We need a Return URL like this: http://www.ourcompany.com/ourwebpage.html

    Thanks any help.

    If a customer orders a product and decides to continue shopping, then the cart contents are passed back to the website. This information is used by many different scripts by countless websites. I have not seen anyone complain about it upsetting a mobile website before, in what way is the return doing this?

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

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

    GT,

    DUDA considered these URL as 2 different URL.
    URL added on mobile site - http://www.ourcompany.com/ourwebpage.html
    Return Shopping URL - http://www.ourcompany.com/ourwebpage.html?qty=0.00&sub=0.00&shp=0.00&dis=0.00&vch=0.00&tax=0.00&tot=0.00&unt=0&sd=

    The uncontrollable result is the shopping cart isnít returning to Dudaís set up mobile page (the page we want it to return to), as it would if it was simply going back to http://www.ourcompany.com/ourwebpage.html

    This and I would image itís iterations if there is content in the shopping cart are routing back to a page, but not well designed mobile page we want.

    As I asked in the original post, is there a way to strip out this in Mal Cart on the return?:
    ?qty=0.00&sub=0.00&shp=0.00&dis=0.00&vch=0.00&tax=0.00&tot=0.00&unt=0&sd=

    In Google Analytics Iíve seen these Return pages, also treated as a new or different page than their original sending URL.

    Ask DUDA if they do .htaccess, if they do, you can put a mod_rewrite in place.

    If they don't, ask DUDA support how to work around this issue.
