Description Paul Lindner 2000-07-15 00:50:51 UTC
Shopping Cart text needs to have personalized headings based on the user
when logged in.

I added this functionality from the engineering side.  There is now a new folder
in the 'store_cart' pane called 'cart_headers'.  All header files for the store
cart should be put here.  To include a header file in a cart style, a header
include function is provided.  You can include headers like this:

For a header file named 'my_header.html'

To include in a cart style add the line:

<% cart_header('my_header'); %>

just before the first bit of HTML.

Paul, for some reason I was not able to assign this bug to myself or change its

Update on previous comment;  my fix does not actually address the problem. 
Rather than needing a personalized *cart* header, a personalized *page* header
is need for a particular page showing the cart.  
This will require updating the site.rdf file to allow variable substitution and
adding a logged in page title and a logged out page title.

Comment 3 Garth Webb 2000-07-28 17:27:02 UTC
This has been fixed by adding code to the Apps::Nav module.  One can now
personalize the header pane for the logged in user.  This is done via the *.rdf
files in the header pane folder 'web/apps/panes/header/nav'.  There are 3 new
variables that can be used:

%u == replaced by the logged in user's username
%f  == replaced by the logged in user's first name
%l == replaced by the logged in user's last name

There are also two new tags:

<dc:userTitle> == the title used when a user is logged in.
<rh:userNavTitle> == the nav title used when a user is logged in.
