I am trying to find a way to add products to cart using from a CMS page using a foreach loop which displays the list of products from a specific category. The problem is that my add to cart form will only submit one of the products to the cart.

Could anyone point me in the right direction, I've been here for hours!

I'm not sure if it is my form or if this is even possible in Magento but I'd appreciate som advice...

<?php 
$category_id = "49"; // category_id for "products"
$_productCollection = Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/product_collection')
->addAttributeToSelect(array('name', 'price', 'small_image', 'short_description'), 'inner')
->addCategoryFilter(Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($category_id));
?>
<?php if($_productCollection->count()): ?>
       <?php 
       $products = array();
       foreach ($_productCollection as $_product) { 
        ?>
<form action="<?php echo $this->getSubmitUrl($_product) ?>" method="post" id="product_addtocart_form"<?php if($_product->getOptions()): ?> enctype="multiadd/form-data"<?php endif; ?> class="form">

          <a class="fancybox static-thumbs pull-left" href="<?php echo $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($_product, 'small_image')->resize(500, 450); ?>" alt="<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($this->getImageLabel($_product, 'small_image')) ?>" title="<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($this->getImageLabel($_product, 'small_image')) ?>">
            <img class="media-object" src="<?php echo $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($_product, 'small_image')->resize(150, 125); ?>" alt="<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($this->getImageLabel($_product, 'small_image')) ?>" title="<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($this->getImageLabel($_product, 'small_image')) ?>" />
          </a>

       <h4 class="media-heading"><a class="view-item-button" href="<?php echo $_product->getProductUrl() ?>" title="<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($_product->getName()) ?>"><?php echo $this->__('Order'); ?> <?php echo $this->htmlEscape($_product->getName())?><?php echo $this->__('&#8482;'); ?></a></h4>

        <p>
            <?php echo $_product->_data['short_description']; ?>
        </p>


        <h2 class="product-name"><?php echo $this->__('Price:'); ?> <?php echo Mage::helper('core')->currency($_product->getPrice()); ?></h2><?php if($_product->isSaleable()): ?>

  <p class="product-name"><?php echo $this->__('Quantity:'); ?></p>
   <select name="qty" class="span1">
  <?php $i = 1 ?>
  <?php do { ?>
    <option value="<?php echo $i?>">
      <?php echo $i?>
      <?php $i++ ?>
    </option>
    <?php } while ($i <= (int)Mage::getModel('cataloginventory/stock_item')->loadByProduct($_product)->getMaxSaleQty()) ?>
</select>

            <button type="button" title="<?php echo $this->__('Add to Cart') ?>" class="btn btn-danger" onclick="productAddToCartForm.submit(this)"><span><span><?php echo $this->__('Add to Cart') ?></span></span></button>
                <?php else: ?>
            <p class="availability out-of-stock"><span><?php echo $this->__('Out of stock') ?></span></p>
        <?php endif; ?> 
        <?php } ?>

 </form>

Don't use a form, use this link instead:
{link to your store directory}/checkout/cart/add?product=" + sku + "&qty=1"

Hi,

Thankyou for your response. Although the code you posted is correct I am trying to use a slightly different method.

I have used catalog_product_list_related and included an add to cart button and dropdown quantity chooser.

The problem now is that I cannot add more than on +1 item to the cart even if I select a quantity of 5. However, only the last product in the list allows me to choose a quantity....

Any idea why?

Well, essentially you are using the code I posted by using the getAddToCartUrl(). It produces code very similar to what I posted it just uses it as a form action.

I'm not going to object but in the spirit of this site, you should have accepted my response instead of requesting deletion.
