Pricing Total Shortcode

  1. Is there a way to add the price total without using just the field label? Like a shortcode? Looking for a way to add on one of my pages...Thanks.

  3. Can't you just hide the label via CSS?

  4. I would like the total to at the top of every multipage in wordpress...right now it's just on the last page when they checkout...but I don't want to add more pricing total fields...

  5. Currently there is not. The Total Field is the only thing that can be added to calculate the Total. However, your idea is intriguing.

    Do you see this as a shortcode that is strictly for use in HTML fields on a multi-page or is it something you'd like to use outside of the form itself... such as somewhere else on the page or in the theme via the shortcode in the page content or a function call in your theme?

  6. Thanks Carl...I was thinking more about using this somewhere else on the page or maybe within a php file (example in header.php). Not sure...I was just thinking of a way for my customers to see their total throughout the order form process before getting to the end of my 6 page form yet looking professional...thanks and let me know? Cheers.

  7. Right now the only way to do this is will be to add a Total Field to each page. How many pages is the form? The Total field is pretty simply so it shouldn't be too cumbersome to add that to each location you want to display the Total.

    It is possible to use jQuery to display the Total elsewhere on the page by hooking into the pricing related JS that updates the Total. But it would require custom JS to implement and adding a Total Field to each page may be just as easy.

    We can look at creating some sort of shortcode in a future release that can be placed either outside of the form itself in a page/post, in a theme template file or within an HTML field and update along with the Total field when the price is changed. It is a cool idea and could have some interesting uses.
