Tried this with still no luck Also there is a different $cart that I can use, however... serializing the data is the hard part. I have no clue what that is. Reading the material about how to makes me go cross-eyed. Any suggestions on that?
just realize that your 1st Array didnt have any variable associate with it. the 1st line
$myvar = Array (
[num_items] => 0,
Also try using print_r($myvar) to see what's contained in an array.
Some notes on serialize, taken from php manual serialize() returns a string containing a byte-stream representation of value that can be stored anywhere.
This is useful for storing or passing PHP values around without losing their type and structure.
