Can I make a miniature "View Cart" display on my own web pages?

You can use this to create a mini view of the shopping cart contents in your website. Or to create a mini version of the shopping cart add buttons.

This requires you to add a little extra information to the regular cart buttons.

That information is written in red below:

<a href="">View Cart</a>

Or in a form add these lines
   <input type=hidden name="ShowMiniView" value="3">
   <input type=hidden name="ShowHeader" value="1">

1Display with a content-type text/html. Useful for IFRAMES and Pop-Ups. Uses the browser default colors.
2Display with a content-type text/html. Useful for IFRAMES and Pop-Ups. Uses the colors you've chosen in your Color/Layout Settings
3Activate the style.css file which can be uploaded using the Upload Custom Images tool
