i don't mean to beat a dead horse here but i am having similar issues with the fly-to-basket where it shows up with unspecified in the cart area and NaN for the total. i know that it's obviously not reading my string coming back from the addProduct.php file but nothing in this post seems to work for me. each item, even though numbered differently, shows up in the cart in the same row. for example, you click item 1,2, and 3 and they all show up in 1 row as a count of 3 unspecified items. is it correct to assume that you can query an existing recordset with the variable $_GET['productId'] and return a string like echo "$id|||$name|||$cost"; where these are 3 fields from my database? any assistance is appreciated.
