please help.......greenspun.com : LUSENET : S-Mart Shopping Cart : One Thread
Hi, This is probably something stupid, but, it's the first time I've tried to set up a shopping cart. I am just trying to get everything loaded so I can customize. I have all permissions set and transferred in ASCII. The problem I'm having is that when I try to test the script it loads a blank page to the screen...but if it can't find my header and footer it loads the form. any ideas why? you can see what I mean here: http://www.efxweb.com/southernwood/shop1/smart.cgi?command=review

Yes I know, I'm answering my own question, but I wanted to save anyone the trouble of looking. The problem came from the BODY callouts in the header file. It was corrupting the form post. cleared the callouts, and Wahla! no problem. Maybe this will help someone else since I was testing eith the default header that i downloaded.

Serious question for a newbie - "what are callouts?"
