Minicart


The minicart allows customers to quickly view the contents of their cart from any page on the site. Without this page element, customers must go to the shopping cart page to see what they have in their cart currently.

NOTE: The minicart never displays on the main shopping cart page

Enabling the Minicart

1 - First, add the (!MINICART!) skin token to your site's skin.

2 - Configure the following AppConfigs according to your preferences:

AppConfig NameDescription
MiniCartMaxIconHeightIf ShowPicsInMiniCart=true (see below), this sets the height of the images shown in the minicart.
MiniCartMaxIconWidthIf ShowPicsInMiniCart=true (see below), this sets the height of the images shown in the minicart.
ShowMiniCartIf this is set to false, the minicart will not display, whether or not the token is in the skin.
ShowPicsInMiniCartIf this is true, icon images will display for each item. This can make the minicart display very long for sites where customers commonly have many items in the cart, and may need to be disabled.

Display

The minicart appears on the front-end of the site as pictured below:
