Only show cart when logged in

Hi - I am working with an allocation that is 100% reserved for club members, so it is misleading to have a cart in the header when visiting the site as a non-member. I only want the cart to show up once you have logged in. Has anyone done this yet?

Assuming you are hosting the entire site on WineDirect and not a separate CMS like Wordpress?

Probably the most straightforward way to achieve what you want is by using javascript. You could see what classes are injected into a page’s code by Wine Direct once a user is logged in, and stipulate that the cart classes only show up when those are visible.

For example, once a user logs in to Wine Direct the class .v65-logout appears on the page (this is the user’s logout link). You can pretty safely assume if that class is present, a user is logged in. You can set up your cart to only show when that class is present (set display: none if it’s not).

The only thing to really worry about is how this will affect users with screen readers (disabled).

This could be done the way @another_redesign suggested, or a more simplistic approach would be to use the don’t show if zero attribute

<v65:modalCart display="dontShowIfZero"></v65:modalCart>

This assumes the store is fully secured, and club members will only see a cart once they’ve added a product to their cart.

Thanks for the quick and intuitive insights. We will look into it!

Quick question, doesn’t don’t show if zero also not display the cart in scenarios where the user is logged in, but hasn’t added anything? Because I interpreted the OP as wanting the cart to show to those logged in, regardless of whether product was added to the cart or not. (I know this is a use case that has come up for me before.)

Correct - dont show if zero will always hide the cart if it’s empty, logged in or not. Just an easier non JS solution to the presented problem
