Hello all
I am new b2evolution.Can any one tell me how can i integrate b2evolution with shoping carts.

Waiting for a reply!

That depends on what you mean by integrate. Do you just want to make the shopping cart cms and b2evolution look similar? What shopping cart are you going to use. A shopping cart and a blog are two pretty different applications, so I don't really know what you're going for. Can you describe what you would like to have?

I just asked this question [url=]over here [/url].

I want to create posts that contain the picture of my product, the form code, and the submit button. I will be using paypal to take care of the cart through a pop up window.

Is this possible? I don't see why not. I'm thinking of disabling any XHTML and CSS prevention.

<form action="submit">
<input>how many</input>
<input type=submit></input>

Test it out and become the expert!

my only concern is with the security of disabling the XHTML and CSS Security - so far I haven't gotten a conclusive answer - those settings are only a concern if you have 'more bloggers' in your system, right?

completely right!

In my blog I disabled this 'check' for the admin.
All my other user still got blocked when they use 'strange' code
but the admin can use whatever he wants.
Offcourse then you need to trust the admin completely

Thanks guys.

As a summary, I've spent a few hours and i'm stuck on this one:

After creating my post with this paypal code

Add to cart
<form method="post" action="paypal">
<input name="">
...more inputs ...

View Cart
<form method="post" action="paypal">
<input name="">
...more inputs ...

b2evo replaces the opening <form> tag for the second form.

It also replaces one of the <input name > tags... for the second form only

If i use only one form, then all is well.

I'm thinking it has to do with the _formatting.php or my skin but I'm not sure.

For this particular experiment, I'm using the evoCamp skin.

What do you think?

have you tried with realy customized names for your inputnames ?
I know tht b2evo change the names at random from the comment form, so spammers have less controll on the forms..

Thanks Topanga,

I did some reading at the paypal support site and found out that you can use URLs instead of forms. That has solved my issue. I was a bit worried for a bit.

That said, I was thinking this <form><input> thing could've been solved by a plugin where I just enter the produt ID, Price, and business name, and then the plugin would render the HTML form.

Would that have worked?

Should we work on such a plugin for other ecommerce stuff that uses forms ?

Form is loading...
