Graphics on Checkout

The checkout page doesn't show my graphics, even though the path to those graphics are correct. Any suggestions?

I'm also quite confused about inserting my logo into the cart. I've view the screencasts several times and added what I thought was the correct CSS revision and it didn't work. I'm going crazy, there must be a simpler way.

    Hi Rick.

    You have an example we can take a look at? You can whisper the URL if it's private.

    As for CSS, are you using the "text only" template? That's what we recommend as far as customization the cart/checkout. Either way, you'll want to make sure your CSS file is AFTER our css file to override styles there. Also, are you using the caching system to ensure all of the images, javascript and css are cached on our server to avoid SSL issues?

    Having a link to look at will definitely help us diagnose any issues you're facing. Also, what store is this for? What's the store subdomain?
  • My store subdomain is wetzelandcompany.

    Go to

    I changed the cart to text only. The "Your Cart" disappeared but my Logo didn't replace it.

    Click on the "Buy and Ship CD" button to view my FoxyCart.

    On my checkout page, my logo doesn't appear either.

    Here is the code on the check out. The path to my logo is correct and works on it own.

    <td width="110"><a href=""><img id="Logo5" src=""; alt=""; name="Logo5" height="33" width="110" border="0"></a></td>

    Hi Rick.
    Sorry, the store logo doesn't actually get inserted into the cart automatically. It never has, but it probably _should_, so we'll look into fixing that in a future release.

    As far as your image not displaying... that's odd. Ok, I just cleared your image cache and it's resolved. If this happens again please let us know and click the "image cache" link under "templates" in your admin.
  • I just fixed the problem, it turned out I had a rewrite in my htaccess file preventing hotlinking.
  • brettbrett FoxyCart Team
    Ah, that's good to know. Issues like this come up occasionally, but I'd never thought of hotlinking protection causing problems. Thanks for letting us know.
  • That took care of my checkout page, but my cart is is without my logo.
    Is this the correct CSS?

    #fc_cart_container {
    background:url( no-repeat top left;

    It doesn't show up

    Click "Buy CD & Ship"
  • FWIW, firebug doesn't show the background property on the #fc_cart_container element. Didn't have a chance to dig any deeper though.
  • brettbrett FoxyCart Team
    Ah, ok, so this is something that catches a lot of people. The cart is in an iframe, so it has its own CSS. The declaration you added is on the site, not your cart. Just stick that declaration in your cart template and that should get you started in the right direction.

    Make sense?
  • I've gone back and forth with the standard cart and text only. Neither works. Which to you recommend?

    Hi Rick.
    Sorry, I wasn't as clear as I could have been. You have your CSS on your own site, where you have all your other CSS. The cart, where you want the CSS to apply, is an entirely separate page, loaded in an iframe, with its own CSS.

    When you load up your cart, right click (in Firefox) and say This Frame -> Open in new tab. Then take a look at what CSS is there. _That's_ where you need to put the CSS for the cart, since it's an entirely separate page. You can use either the standard or the text themes, but you need to add your CSS to the cart template and not to your own site.

    Does that help? Sorry if it's confusing.
  • Success! Thank you.
