count($_SESSION['itemdata']['totalitems']) will always return 1, because you are trying to count elements in non-array variable.

BTW, to check how many items you have, you dont need to use count. $_SESSION['itemdata']['totalitems'] keeps that information.

for($a=0; $a <= $_SESSION['itemdata']['totalitems']; $a++) <--- if you have 5 items, this loop will go through 0...5 (6 iterations).

But doesnt that Zero seem to throw things off should i be setting it to one on the first item ?


>>for($a=0; $a <= $_SESSION['itemdata']['totalitems']; $a++) <--- if you have 5 items, this loop will go through 0...5 (6 iterations).

ok so take out that = then GOT IT...

>>count($_SESSION['itemdata']['totalitems']) will always return 1, because you are trying to count elements in non-array variable.

Right but when i first setup an item should i check for isset on itemdata totalitems then if it is set it as one

if(isset($_SESSION['itemdata']['totalitems'])){

    $_SESSION['itemdata']['totalitems']=$_SESSION['itemdata']['totalitems']++; //increase it    

     }else{

    $_SESSION['itemdata']['totalitems']=1;

}
