How To Fix PayPal's 'Continue Shopping' Link

Have you incorporated PayPal's shopping cart into your website?

Have you made it so that PayPal's shopping cart opens in a new window?

Are you annoyed and frustrated when you click on their "Continue Shopping" link on their shopping cart page, and it closes the new window, just like you want it to, but it ALSO redirects the original page and sends you to your site's homepage?

Here's what you have to do to stop that.

Just add this line to your shopping cart HTML:

<input type="hidden" name="shopping_url" value="javascript:void(0);">

That's it. The new window containing PayPal's shopping cart will still close, and much to your surprise and delight, the page that launched the new window WILL REMAIN right where it is.

Give it a shot. If you're anything like me, you'll be overjoyed about how it works.
