i have 5 problems, if you can help for any of them, that would be much appreciated.
1. When i set up variations and click on 'add to cart' a white page comes up with the url 'www.mysite/product/add'
2. When a product is in the shopping cart, the name of the product is #0
3. When i click 'go to the checkout' (the link that replaces the add to cart link) i get directed to my homepage
4. When somebody purchases something, i do not get an email notification
5. When trying to remove anything from my cart, nothing happens

Thanks so much for any help

Nickt, you might want to make it easier to help you by adding same basic info, such as:
- SS version
- E-Commerce version
- Templates used (the ones coming with e-commerce or blackcandy or old ones from a Theme)?

Most of the issues you describe sound like template issues. let me explain:

There are different templates for each part which can be used, such as the product list, the product page, the shopping cart. In order to use the new ecommerce version you should not use a template which was built for an older ecommerce version. Too much has changed in ecommerce recently. Many of themes which have their own templates for ecommerce had been built some time ago, so if they contain ecommerce templates, then they fit for the older ecommerce versions.

Now your oldenglish theme was released 03 Sep 08, and it says that it is compatible with ecommerce, thus I assume that it contains its own templates for ecommerce. If so, they can only be written for an ancient version of ecommerce. In this case replace the oldenglish_ecommerce templates with the generic templates from the ecommerce module. You might need to adapt them to fit your oldenglish theme, use the old oldenglish templates as samples.

If your oldenglish theme does not contain its own ecommerce templates then check what templates are used, and make sure they are the ones from your version of ecommerce.

if i deleted the oldenglish ecommerce files, would the ecommerce 0.6 files be used instead?
