    Question offline shopping cart?

    hi all,

    Need some possible technical solutions to my current project. Im in the middle of creating an 'offline' photo gallery website (on CD). Quite simple, but the challenge is how I can build an offline ordering process which

    1) Allows the person browsing the cd photo gallery to select various photos, 2) Generate some sort of page/file which can then be printed then faxed, or even emailed if possible.

    Does anyone have any tips on the best way to do this? Thanks for your time and help.

    The problem you are going to have is where to store the selections that the customer wants. Since you are going to be on a CD then you cannot write to any files, that only leaves you cookies.

    A cookie could contain a list of products and the quantity requested for each. The "Order" page would simply read the contents of the cookie and output it in an order layout.
