Cart Link Displaying Large Totals

We have newly installed Event Expresso v3.1.32.2.P with Multiple Event Registration v1.0.4  at

We have put a link to the Cart on the homepage, however if you click on the link without having added an event to the cart previously, the cart shows a Total of $1000000.  Is there an easy fix for this?

Sorry about that, it was designed as a security measure but has been causing some issues recently, we are currently looking into the matter to resolve it.

In the mean time, the easiest way to remove the issue is to de-activate the Volume Discounts add on.

Thanks Dean, but I don’t believe we are using the Volume Discounts add-on. Is there another interim fix? Joe

Hi J,

When the add to cart link gets added to a page like the homepage, it really needs an event ID included in the shortcode so that it can actually add an event to the cart. It looks like the add to cart shortcode is being used here, but no event_ID’s are being passed so it’s basically trying to add an event that doesn’t have a price (which triggers the security stuff that Dean was referring to).

I checked the registration page on your site and it looks like you have events with the ID’s of 8, 9, 10.

So with those, you could do:

[ESPRESSO_CART_LINK event_id=”8″ anchor=”Register for NSW Legal Summit”]

if you wanted to make it add all three options to the cart:

[ESPRESSO_CART_LINK event_id=”8-9-10″ anchor=”Register for everything”]

If you’re looking to add a link to the page that does not add anything to the cart, but can be used to go to the cart to view it (doesn’t add anything to the cart). You could add an html link like this:

<a href="">Cart</a>

The above will take the user to the cart without adding anything to it. If they haven’t added anything to the cart it will display a message that they have not added anything to the cart.

Thanks – that has done the trick. Regards, Joe
