If you are among many PrestaShop fans, you will be very excited to upgrade your 1.5 store to the new 1.6 version. While upgrading via the 1-Click Upgrade is very quick, there can be a few tweaks needed to your storefront. One of the more common issues we are seeing is the Cart block is sitting out in the middle of the page. It should be in the upper right of the page as it was in the 1.5 version. Follow along below as we describe how to fix this issue.

Repositioning the Cart Block

  1. Log into your admin interface.
  2. Click on the Modules tab on the left side menu then click on the Positions tab.
  3. On the Positions screen, scroll down until you locate the displayTop section. Note that the position of the Cart Block is under Top horizontal menu. Move the Cart Block to be above the Top Horizontal Menu. You can do that by either clicking on the arrow images or by clicking the row and dragging it to its new location.
    Just moving the Cart block above the Horizontal Menu Bar worked but there was some alignment issues between the search bar and the cart block. Moving both up to the top solved this issue for us, aligning them both correctly. You may need to experiment depending on what you have displaying on your page.
  4. Now you can visit your site and see that the Cart is now in the upper right instead of the middle of the page.

Hello, Js Marcotte.

If you don't read English, please use Google Translate to translate my response below.

As mentioned in this guide, you may need to experiment with the positioning based on what else you have displayed on your page.

Looking at the source of you page it appears you have a Block user information module NAV that contains your Contact Us, Language, and Sign in menu links.

It looks like you don't have your store logo, or the search box modules active, so your cart module is showing up towards the left of your page.

It seems you could edit your /global.css file around Line 703 where it has this:

.col-sm-4, header .row #header_logo {
width: 33.33333%;

You could add these styles to that to move the cart block right under the nav bar you have setup:

.col-sm-4, header .row #header_logo {
width: 33.33333%;
top: -50px;
left: 68%;

Please let us know if you had any further questions at all.

Hello, Js Marcotte.

I'm currently looking at your /themes/default-bootstrap/css/global.css file, and I'm not seeing those changes in it. I'm still seeing Line 703 just look like this:

.col-sm-4, header .row #header_logo {
width: 33.33333%; }

Did you make sure to save this file after editing it?

Hello Jean Sebastien,

I see that the cart block is now near the top of the page next to the logo block. I am confused as to what you are asking currently. What is not appearing on your page correctly?

Also, unless absolutely necessary, do not manually modify the css files. Most things can be adjusted by working within the back office.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M

In your previous comments, it looks like you were saying that you did not place the last "}" symbol into your code. Ensure that the block of CSS if fully closed as without it, it will lead to errors.

Hello S.Dong,

Thanks for the question. It appears that your site is set in catalog mode. No prices are showing for your products and there no cart - which is indicative of catalog mode. Please check this setting. If it is NOT set, then please provide a little more information. Did you run an upgrade? Have you seen the cart work before? Have you loaded any 3rd party extensions?

I hope that helps to clear up the problem. Please let us know if you have any further questions or comments.

Hello Roberta,

We do not have an article on how to change your logo size as by default, OpenCart does not resize the logo. According to the OpenCart forums, you simply need to upload the logo at the size you want it to be.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
