There are several contributions that address this, however I find none of them THE solution. Check them out by clicking on CONTRIBUTIONS in my signature.

Thanks - will do

 

The problem is that I am writing this sub site. This site is accessed by people who have logged in to its mother site with an access id. This verifies that they can go to other sites within the community. They don't need anything more as an account as they already set this up in the mother site. But I still would like them to buy stuff from my site without needing to create an account. Would OSC be able to handle this?

Should I look at the contribs still under your signature?

hmm.. so they need to register on the mother site to get access to osC?

In that case you could possible adapt the application_top.php to check for that original mother-login and remove the need to login completely from osC. Once they checkout you pre-fill the form fields with data retreived from the mother-login.. something like that.

Thats kinda what I thought but there is a contrib for purchase without login which gives you an optiob to purchase without login. create an account or login - I count just action taht contrib but "I hate to say this" Hard code the purchase without login and carry on? Sort of retains the integrity of the design? Or Overkill??

 

Will try it out - keep you posted. If it gets too hard I'll just bypass the whole login thing in the first place - I have to report back to the mothership regarding transactions anyway so it seems the bypass way is the simplest - would you have an idea what I need to do to do this?

 

I am trying to weigh up as I type which is the best/fastest/safest way to go

 

Any advice?
