Product Options 2.0 for Ajax Themes


This article only applies to Product Options Version 2.0. It requires technical knowledge and prior experience with JavaScript and Ajax. If you are not comfortable with this, Request an Ajax Install.

Shopify themes that use Ajax for certain features don't automatically function correctly with Product Options 2.0 because they update the cart dynamically without reloading the page. When this happens the changes that Options 2.0 has made to the cart are erased. To correct this, it is necessary to trigger Product Options 2.0 to redo its changes after the Ajax cart reload has completed. Follow these instructions to do this:

  1. From "Shopify Admin", select Online Store.
  2. Select ...
  3. Select Edit HTML / CSS.
  4. Under "Assets", select theme.js.

    Note: If this file doesn’t exist, your main JavaScript file may be named: app.js, ajaxify.js, the same name as your theme or something similar.

  5. Look for the function that draws the cart, like refreshCart or buildCart.


  6. Add this code immediately after the opening of the function:
    if(window.BOLD && BOLD.common && BOLD.common.cartDoctor && typeof BOLD.common.cartDoctor.fix === 'function'){
        cart = BOLD.common.cartDoctor.fix(cart);

    It should look like this:


  7. Scroll down to the end of the function.


  8. Add this code right at end of the function before the close:
    if(window.BOLD && BOLD.common && BOLD.common.eventEmitter && typeof BOLD.common.eventEmitter.emit === 'function'){
      BOLD.common.eventEmitter.emit('BOLD_COMMON_cart_loaded', cart);

    It should look like this:


  9. Select Save.

That's it!
