Was this information Helpful?

After fruitless searching in the fora and much cursing and pulling of hair (something I can ill afford) I have discovered the following rules for specifying cart links messages, which I hope will save others the same grief.

1. To stop the default "xxx added to your shopping cart" message, use the specification "_m0" (NB the underscore). For example ...cart/add/p23_m0?destination=cart.

2. To insert your own message, first define your message in the Cart links messages panel on the Cart links settings page, by entering for example "99|My message text", then use the specification "-m99" (NB a dash, not an underscore). For example ...cart/add/p23-m99?destination=cart.

3. Note that just specifying "-m99" will display both your message 99 and the default message. If you want to display only your message, use the specification "_m0-m99". The _m0 must come first.

4. For additional messages, use dashes, eg "_m0-m99-m1337".

Re: Thank

Indeed, it did save me grief. I wish this was in the documentation. I note too (I think) that your message ID has to be two digits--is that right? It can't be 0075 it has to be instead, 75. (for example)
