How to debug what is the root causes of the problem?


as per this line in Magento_Checkout/templates/cart/minicart.phtml (take this from firebug)

<span data-bind="css: { empty: cart().summary_count == 0 }, blockLoader: isLoading" class="counter qty">

empty class added when cart count is zero, but it is never add empty class for the above scenario

If I remove item from minicart window instead of browser, it works and empty class also added.

Debug Magento Mini Cart

If we want to debug the Js Mini Cart, you find the js - minicart.js, for example: pub/static/frontend/Magento/luma/en_US/Magento_Checkout/js/view/minicart.js.

We can debug with Chrome.

Try with the latest Magento version

I checked with Magento 2.1.1 version, seem they fixed this problem. The new function getCartParam('summary_count') will be used.

data-bind="css: { empty: !!getCartParam('summary_count') == false }, blockLoader: isLoading">

This is css, you are missing a standard part of the magento.css

.minicart-wrapper .action.showcart .counter.qty.empty {
    display: none;
  • no! this is not an answer. I thought, when cart is empty above css automatically get call. we don't need to force anything. I have this problem in staging system only, In development system it works. If you need any further details, please feel free to mention in comment. Oct 5, 2016 at 16:41
