In my store, I need to save certain shopping preferences for an order before the checkout process. For example, if a user selects a certain customization for their product, it needs to be saved and associated with that order. I'm handling the data in a custom table that's organized by uniqid to seperate the orders ( $objSiteSess->getUniqId() )
I've noticed that if I try to call the uniqid function above and use it on the detail page (where my customization is happening), that it changes to a different value once the user hits the checkout process.
Is there a way to maintain the same uniqid for a shopping session before and during checkout? I hope that makes sesne.
Thanks in advance!
