I can't find any documentation on how the ^^cart^^ in receipts can be modified.
We have five people fulfilling orders in our organization. The items have categories, and different people mail items in different categories from different parts of the country. To make their job easier, I'd like the cart or be ordered by category, and then within each category the items should be ordered either alphabetically or by code (item number). Shouldn't this be a basic bit of functionality? Or am I going to have to do some more coding (please say no!).
Next, we have one category that may have hundreds of ordered items. In the cart template received by email, each item requires at least four lines, where one could easily suffice (simple table). I'd like to modify this. Is it possible?
Of course, all this would be ideal functionality for the on-screen cart as well. It is mentioned a number of times in the forums and Wiki that you can use jquery and the json thing to modify the cart, but for this example (and other basic formatting issues), wouldn't it be better to offer some gui-style choices? In the meantime, perhaps you guys could post a few examples of how to do the mods, or a complete tutorial. Hey, maybe start with my example!
