I'm trying to integrate Cartweaver into SS. It's an ecommerce solutions that I've used for a while on static sites, but never in conjunction with SS.

When I try to add it into a, I get this:

[Notice] A session had already been started - ignoring session_start()

It identifies this file as the source of misbehaving session_start:

I've tried to just suppress it with @session_start(); - the error doesn't
return but the pages don't load either :(

I've also tried this, with no success: if(!isset($_SESSION)) {
session_start(); }

I did a search for all SS files that call up session_start(), but I don't know what's at fault or how to fix it.
Cartweaver obviously is trying to start a session after SS already has.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help!
