Hi again

If I enter the coupon code, the value is updated in the shopping cart,
but as soon as I click on proceed
it's lost in Ajax...

(i've stitched some screenshots together; see attached image)

I've tried in Opera 9.25, Firefox 1.507 and IE 6.05, so it's not because of some browser specific bug.

I'm sorry guys, but now I cheated!

I manually edited the cookie
And proceeded with the order flawlessly.

Please check your cookie script,
it doesn't update on changing the coupon code.
(Value stays N)
I think you have to add a line in cart.js
but I didn't look closely to verify where you set the cookies at all.

Oh btw: the whole javascript system is not a good idea,
because of various reasons:
1) javascripts are userside script that run on the client computer,
therefore they can be edited or don't run at all.

2) javascripts tend to make different things with the same code, depending on the users operating system, browser and javascript compiler

3) visible source code, lets people step over or in lines of interests

And now the shopping cart cookie
That's not a good idea too
You know I just edited the cookie to gain access to a discount.
I do think, that I could do this twice or three times with the same coupon code (without trying of course.)

keep your eyes up Wink

Thanks

Hello. Where did you get this coupon and how much discount are we taking about?

Hi svenpb,
that's none of your business Wink

I deleted the couponcode in the picture, to prevent any infringement.

You can see what discount we are talking about on the image itself if you're interested.

That being said and to satisfy curiosity:
I do have that coupon because of a previous printjob I already paid, that was unprintable (although stated otherwise)

Is that what you wanted to know?

Nosiness is tedious

Coupons are awarded for many reasons, and sometimes people who qualify to receive one don't find out about it. There's no harm in asking. Smile

Hallelujah!
