Initial coding seemed straightforward and entered onto my first "product page". Site is Frame based (upper & lower)
and am using IE8. On clicking the "add to cart" button, the cart page opened full screen on top of the "product page" -all fine. On selecting button to continue shopping a pop up window appeared "do you want to close this window?" - Yes - pop up disappears and a full screen copy of the "product page" appears ontop of the original. This had to be closed to proceed. PayPal Tech. tell me this is because I am using IE8 and give amendment to one line and a new line to insert. Now when I click the "add to basket" button I am taken to a PayPay Error Page! PayPal Tech. say they have tried my site on IE7 & IE8 and it works perfect, there for it must be my browser settings. I have told them I have tried on 3 seperate computers, and all take me to the Error Page. And thats as far as we go! Has anybody come across this before? I have no great knowledge, all I have done for the past 6 years is follow passages from a good book, and crib a few things from other sites.

I might be wrong with this suggestion, but it appeared to me you might have more chance to have your problem solved at the PHP forum. I once had an osCommerce webshop which I customized, so I remember some things about how a webshop is organized. As far as I remember the buying process involves interaction with the server and is handled by PHP. Of course HTML is used also for text that is displayed on the computer screen. Reading back my own comments, I think to start with it would be useful if you copied the code you or at least PayPal suspect to cause trouble (one line and a new line to insert ...).
