  • Read through the Getting Started to get a better sense of how the control panel, Database and Front End store interact.

Coding instructions

Step 1: Open the header template

Navigate to the header template /httpdocs/assets/themes/[THEME-NAME]/templates/cms/headers/template.html.

Step 2: Add the code into the header template

Find this line of code which outputs the total number of items added to cart:

<span rel="a2c_item_count">[%format type:'number' dp:'0'%][%CART id:'total_items'%][%/CART%][%/format%]</span> Items

and replace it with this code which outputs the total cost of items added to cart:

<span rel="a2c_sub_total" id="header-subtotal">[%format type:'currency'%][%cart id:'product_total'/%][%/format%]</span>
