Problems with currency carrying over


Recommended Posts

I'm having problems with the currency selection carrying over from page to page.



User selects 'Euro' on the first page. The page reloads showing prices in Euros. When the user clicks to the second page, the currency defaults back to USD, showing prices in USD.


I tried a fresh install, and that didn't solve it.


What could the cause be, and what solutions are there?

and in the catalog/includes/languages/english.php around line 36


// if USE_DEFAULT_LANGUAGE_CURRENCY is true, use the following currency, instead of the applications default currency (used w$



Change it to whatever you need

Thanks, I've actually changed the default current in the english.php file to SGD, as my client is based in Singapore. However, if an overseas client, say one from the US, or someone who wants to look at the prices in US dollars browses the site; when they select US Dollar from the dropdown, when they click to the next page, the dropdown returns to Singapore Dollar.
