Adding multiple events to Cart – Not working as desired

Basically have a list of events with check boxes User checks all events he is interested in and presses Add Events to Cart

This is the onClick target URL:“‘+ VALUES_OF_EVENT_IDS + ‘”&name_of_event=

Instead of adding all events to cart (in the format of event ids 1-3-6 etc), it goes to the registration page listing all events

how can this be done?

Added to target URL string &

‘’+ c_value + ‘&name_of_event=’;

c_value is computed on_click from the checkbox selection

If you looks at the page source when using a shortcode like [ESPRESSO_CART_LINK event_id="3-4-5-6" direct_to_cart=1 moving_to_cart="Redirecting to cart..."], it has the classes ee_view_cart and ee_add_item_to_cart and an id of cart_link_3-4-5-6.

You can see that it creates a link like this:
<a class="ee_view_cart ee_add_item_to_cart" id="cart_link_3-4-5-6" href="" moving_to_cart="Redirecting+to+cart..." direct_to_cart="1" rel="nofollow">Add to cart</a>

You might want to add the cart_link_ somehow.

Also, it looks like your url is is outputting &amp; in the url:;regevent_action=add_event_to_cart&amp;event_id=1-6&amp;name_of_event=

Seth, Thanks it is clear.

We are building the URL for the form to submit, and replacing the href (document.form.action=’http://..’) based on event selections as above.
How would you pass the class and id paramters?

Is there any implementation you have done like this?

Thanks for your help!
