Hey Guys,

Have just started working with the E-commerce module and have a few issues off the bat - hopefully quick fixes...
1) It appears that the end of the <a href> or <img> tags are showing up on screen in the cart and product listings... Below is a screenshot of this on the ProductGroup page

2) The example products function correctly when adding or subtracting them from the cart, but after adding a new product and clicking "add to cart" anywhere, the page loads but nothing happens...

Any Clues?

Using Silverstripe version: 2.4.5
Ecommerce Module: 0.8.1
Payment Module: 0.3.0

Thanks in advance!

# 2 solved - Any new products added just had to be published before the cart could interact with it.
#1 still a mystery...

No feedback on the end of the <a href> and <img> tags showing up...?? Please see start of Post,

Wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

If not, my thoughts are that it may be something to do with my local server environment.

Any clues?

My guess is that you have a typo somewhere. Have you looked at the page with firebug?

It's a fantastic tool for finding html or css errors.

Thanks Rog & Nicolaas,

The code is literally a fresh install of Silverstripe (v 2.4.6), as well as the e-commerce (v 0.8.1) and payment module (v 0.3.0). I have not touched the code anywhere...

I am using XAMPP Lite 1.7.3 for Windows as my local test environment...

So definitely seems like this was caused by my local dev environment as uploading the site to another server the problem does not appear...

Anyone have any clues on what adjustments I could make to my local XAMPP environment to fix this. Not too worried by it now that I know it will disappear once I upload the site, but would be nice to fix it...
