    in the normal cart and when your cart is empty and the "your cart is empty" notice comes up, it provides a "continue shopping" button. i noticed, however, that when i use the i-frame, the "continue shopping" button is not there.

    this is only when the cart is empty, and only when the i-frame is being used.

    does anyone have any idea why that happens, and/or how to fix it?

    A continue shopping button shows in the cart when you have a return field in the review coding.

    You do not want a continue shopping button in your iframe or it is going to reload the cart into the iframe. With an iframe a continue shopping is not needed because they are still on your site so they can continue to shop from links on your site menus.
