Im stuck in D6 for now and I tried to use the Ajax Blocks module to see if it might help tie me over until a solution has reached. The advice about that came from this thread
Sadly, for me, that did not fix the problem. I still get the "click here to view shopping cart" prompt. Its an annoyance really but not enough that I want to risk trying to upgrade to D7 at this time (too many other key modules I use are still working the bugs in D7 or in alpha status on 7.x releases). Any ideas?
