I have upgraded magento to via magento connect from and now whenever I try to add a product to the cart it says shopping cart empty. I added <?php echo $this->getBlockHtml('formkey') ?> to all the form sections recommended to my theme (intenso theme) but that didnt work so I tested with both RWD and default themes and both of those behave the same and show cart as empty.

I have checked that <?php echo $this->getBlockHtml('formkey') ?> is in the form sections of both RWD and default themes and it is,so that is not the problem.

I have tried with both formkey validation on and off in the settings and get the same result. Ordering worked before on version

I have cookie lifetime set to 86400, have tried different cookie domain settings and the cookie path is /

Im not sure what to try next as reading through other posts with the same problem they are all resolved by adding <?php echo $this->getBlockHtml('formkey') ?> to the relevent forms.

  • Open your browsers developer tools and check your frontend cookie before and after adding to cart. I want to make sure that your session is staying consistent. – Tim Cieplowski Aug 3 '17 at 19:32
  • I cleared cookies, tried a cart add with dev tools. There was just 1 single frontend cookie created throughout the process. The cookie was from .mydomain.com (I have cookie domain setting to this) and the url of the site is new.mydomain.com (currently a dev site). Not sure if that effects anything - ive tried clearing the cookie domain part out also but nothing changes. – boliviab Aug 3 '17 at 20:11
  • additional - tried changing the cookie domain setting to be new.mydomain.com to test but same result – boliviab Aug 3 '17 at 20:20
  • Have you tried to turn off Block Caching ? The forms might be cached server side? – giolliano sulit Aug 4 '17 at 4:22
  • I havent and currently I cannot log into admin area even now due to form key issue I have tried completed deleting the cache and session folders under var though (which are successfully recreating proving they can be written to) so that would eliminate that I would believe? – boliviab Aug 4 '17 at 8:36
