💡The General tab consists of various settings sections. Let’s get to know about the Basic Settings first.
The Basic Settings section has several control options for the side cart tray. Notable options are controlling the trigger, tray position, and closing behavior.
How would you like to open the Ajax side cart? You can control the answer to this question with the first two options.
- Open on AJAX Add to Cart
- Open on normal Add to Cart
You can either trigger the side cart once your customers click on Ajax enabled Add to Cart buttons or Normal Add to Cart buttons. Of course, you can select both options together.
WooCommerce generally offers Ajax enabled Add to Cart on archive pages and Normal Add to Cart on single product pages.
Hide Overlay Layer
Would you like to allow your customers to continue shopping while the side cart is also open 🤔️
Enable the option by clicking on the toggle switch. If the option is disabled, there will be an overlay layer. Your customers will have to close the side cart first to continue shopping.
Control the position of your side cart tray from here. There are five positions to choose from. The options are right, left, top, bottom, and center of the screen.
Here, you control how your customers will close the side cart tray. There are two choices:
First, clicking on the Close Button of Cart Tray
A Cross Icon will appear on the side cart tray, Customers will have to click on the Cross Icon to close the side cart.
Second, Clicking on outside of Cart Tray
If you choose this option, your customers will be able to close the side cart by clicking on anywhere outside the side cart tray.
Refresh Cart on Page Load
This option helps observe the instant effects of changes you have made to the settings.
💡Without refreshing the cart fragments, you may not see any visible changes. This will leave you wondering if you have done it properly or not. So, we recommend enabling the option if you want to see instant changes on the front end.
