Variable names for tracking code

P: 3
Hi, I have an online shop that uses Sunshop php shopping cart and I have attempted to get help through their forum but no-one responds with assistance. I need to install a tracking code on my site and I was given the tracking code and told I need to insert the variable names for the order total and sales id. But I have no idea what these are where to find them. The tracking code looks like this

<img height="1" width="1" border="0"src="https://secure.getprice.com.au/affsale.asp?shopid=1314&price=400&sid=1981">

and the 400 is the price of the product which should be entered by my system dynamically for each product

and the 1981 is the sale id in my system which should be entered by my system

Stupid as I am I thought it was a simple matter of grabbing the variable names from my own checkout page code (that's what the people who supplied me the tracking code said) but I've been told by Sunshop to install another affiliate tracking program, locate the variable names there and then add them. I did that but still don't know where to find the variable names and Sunshop forum has not responded to me.

Please I need help. If I paste my checkout code here will anyone be able to help me?

Thank you,

Jenni

Wow all these php experts and not one that knows anything about variables. I'm a mother of four on a disability pension trying to get a business off the ground. I don't have the money to pay for a php developer to help me and I was under the stupidly false impression that someone on a forum somewhere would know something about variables. Thanks for nothing people.

the cause is probably that there are no experts fit in using sunhop shopping cart. and what its developers call variables.

I know a lot about variables. I know a lot about different programming paradigms and programming languages. I do not, however, know how you could be selfish as to bring your personal (sop-story) life into this. This is a developers forum. Developers. If you're not a developer, teach yourself to be one and stop demanding that others do something for you just because you're a mother with n children.

As Dormilich said previously, the lack of answers is due to 0 of the experts here using the software you use. One question, when you ask a question to the developers/community of this software, and not one person responds, what does that tell you about the product? Tells me not worth the time.

Would you like to tell us the purpose of your site, and we could possibly offer some different software for the job.

Thank you for the replies. My obnoxious comments were to see if I could generate a response. I know, not the right thing to do and I apologise sincerely. I don't really live the 'sob story' that I told. (I can feel a forum ban coming on here but I'm not a developer so I don't need to come back anyway).

Anyway, all someone had to do was say "there are no experts fit in using sunshop shopping cart. and what its developers call variables."

No, I'm not php savvy but I didn't realise that the purpose of this forum was to only share information between developers. Alright, so I didn't read the /bytes/about

Oh, and one last thing - I thoroughly agree with your comment "when you ask a question to the developers/community of this software, and not one person responds, what does that tell you about the product? Tells me not worth the time." But there are a myriad of forums where questions remain unanswered. I happen to think it's rude and ignorant to not even give a single line response in acknowledgement. We're all human with feelings and being ignored isn't nice.

Then you should know that this is a forum of volunteers. We are not paid, given holidays, etc. Most of us having working lives and take time out of those lives to help answer questions in the forums. That being said, I think you can see why a question may go unanswered for any amount of time. Furthermore, it happens sometimes if the forum is busy, that a new question can be overlooked.

We do our best, and, as the saying goes, this is a privilege, not a service.

Good day,
Mark.
