Displays the sidecart layout as defined in the [[sidecart.php template file]].

shopp('cart', 'sidecart', 'options')

@param string $object the object or object.tag combination, if object.tag is used, the tag parameter can be omitted
@param string $tag the tag, can be hyphenated or not. Prefix with 'get' as shorthand for the return=true option
@param mixed $options associative array, or url-style name=value pairs separated by ampersands (&). Each pair is passed to the theme api tag as an option.
@returns string Markup from the Shopp sidecart.php content template

Renders the markup and code included in the Shopp sidecart.php content template file.

If you are using AJAX behaviors with this tag, be sure to wrap the tag in a container that has a class of widget_shoppcartwidget. If your sidecart does not exist in a container with that class, the AJAX update handler will not be able to properly update the cart. When the sidecart is called as a WordPress Widget, the class is automatically added.

This tag will not display anything if the Shopping Cart setting in SetupPreferences is disabled.


Universal Options

All Theme API calls have these options.

  • return: when set to true, 1, or on, this option forces the tag to return the value instead of displaying/echoing the value to the page. Alternatively, prefix the tag parameter with get to get the same effect. All theme api tags that return a boolean value will return by default.
  • echo: when set to false, 0, or off, this option forces the tag to display the value to the page. This is the default for all non-boolean tags.
  • is: when set to true, 1, or on, this option will evaluate the return of the theme api call as a boolean true or false value. See how values are converted to boolean.
