I have a regular 'update cart button' on my basket (button type="submit" name="update_cart"), which should obviously recalculate the cart when I click it.

The cart is reloading correctly, but any changes to quantity are being ignored and the original value reloaded.

Any pointers as to where this might be going wrong?

  • Is this a local site or on a staging server? I'm having a similar issue on localhost. – Stuart McCoy May 17 '13 at 15:38
  • When you say the cart is reloading correctly, what do you mean? Does the page just refresh? Try removing your htaccess file and see if it works using the standard index.php/template-group URLs. – Adrian Macneil May 18 '13 at 0:54
  • Check to see that you do not have a minimum quantity set to the product (something so simple ... has tripped me up before!) – Dan May 18 '13 at 12:48
  • It's on a staging server, I'm sure it used to work! The page refreshes, but the quantity hasn't updated. I had problems with the htaccess when I first moved to my VPS, but I thought I had fixed them all. Thanks for the suggestions, will try them out. – Martyn James May 20 '13 at 9:49
  • It turns out that there is no error with my site, just that 'limit stock' was turned on, and everything was set to '1' in the inventory !! – Martyn James May 20 '13 at 13:54

It turns out that there is no error with my site, just that 'limit stock' was turned on, and everything was set to '1' in the inventory! This means that only 1 item could be added to the cart anyway (but no error message meant that it wasn't clear what then issue was)
