The e-commerce.

"In Cart" should read as "Add To Cart"

I'm new to all this, but I tried to test page of version 2.2, and was confused by the term "In cart". I searched everywhere for the button to "add the product to the cart" and realised that "In cart" probably means "add to cart".

Yep, you are correct.

 

There is a contribution that does that and even gives you a button for it.

One of the things you have to keep in mind with OSC is that is being developed by an international group and for many English is not their native language. Many of the translations don't quite "jive" with the way I would say them as an American or that you would say as an Aussie. Luckily, because we can get in there and change things we aren't "stuck" with anything.....You can make the program say anything you would like. Enjoy! :D

While I understand where you are coming from, I find it hard to believe that in any language "In Cart" is as understandable as "Add to Cart". I imagine that anyone you ask, regardless of language or nationality, will take "In Cart" as meaning what is currently in the cart not adding to it.

Hi Jim!

 

May I make a suggestion? If you feel that it really needs to be changed, put together a formal proposal for the DevTeam.

 

Make sure it includes exactly what needed to be changed, the best way to do it and the reasons you feel it should be changed.

 

I can not guarantee that the proposal will be adopted but, it will be given much more serious thought than having a bunch of us gripe about it on the forums.

 

After the proposal is written email or PM it to one of the DevTeam.

Thanks for the suggestion Kim! I will do that.

 

I had figured that since just about every team member, except maybe Harold, had responded to this type of question an internal discussion would have already occurred.

 

Do you think that a topic in the Development forum would be a good place to start allowing everyone (meaning different nationalities and languages) to participate?

 

As an aside, welcome back! :)

From personal experience and not speaking for the Team, what has happened to me is; a suggestion get made during a meeting, along with 50 others, the ones more like to finally be acted upon were ones that were written down so that we had something to remind us of what we talked about. When there are so many other changes occuring, it is very easy to talk about something that should be done but, it doesn't get remembered. Am I making sense?

I don't see why not. You will probably want to be very specific about what you are looking for as far as imput goes and keep things from getting way off topic as you are "brainstorming" but, that might be a good place to start.

 

As an aside, welcome back! :)

 

Thanks!! It feels good to be back. :D

I also agree "Add to Cart" makes more sense than "In Cart"

 

I have been wanting to change that everytime I see it

 

I bet many will want this changed , so please make the suggestion :)

 

A voting system on here would do wonders for user opinion on suggestions and take a lot less reading through posts.

I always change "In Cart" to "Add to Cart" or "Put in Cart" in the catalog/includes/languages/english/images/buttons file.

 

I though until this tread it was just me! "In Cart" means it is arleady in the cart - which it isn't.
