So, I wanted to build my own simple SS webshop with a session shopping cart.

Getting quite far with adding and modifing quantity in the session cart.

But when I want to remove an item from the array SS keeps falling back on the old session vars. Using a regular $_SESSION does work....

The cart items array is like:

$item = array($productid => $quantity);


Example which won't work:

function remove($productid){
      $cart_items = Session::get('cart_items');
      unset ($cart_items[$productid]);
      Session::clear('cart_items'); //even this will cause SS Session to pick the old array with the rmoved item.
      Session::set('cart_items', $cart_items);   //this works when modifying quantity, the new array is used correct   
      if(!$this->isAjax()) Director::redirectBack();
   }


Example which do work:

function remove($productid){
      $cart_items = Session::get('cart_items');
      unset ($cart_items[$productid]);
      $_SESSION['cart_items'] = $cart_items;      
      if(!$this->isAjax()) Director::redirectBack();
   }


Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Hi again,

thanks to Martijn yesterday I discovered that this was problem due to I didn't use serialize and unserialize.
