I would like to see the product short description in the drop down cart after the item title and url link.  I know I need to modify two files but what to put in "mod_virtuemart_s5_dropdown_cart.php"?  I know just enough to locate what needs to be modified but am no good at php.

I have modified "minicart.tpl.php" at line 140:

<?php echo $cart['quantity'?>&nbsp;x&nbsp; <strong><a target="_blank" href="<?php echo $cart['url'?>"><?php echo $cart['product_name'?></a></strong>

And just inserted after this a call to short description:

<?php echo $cart['quantity'?>&nbsp;x&nbsp; <strong><a target="_blank" href="<?php echo $cart['url'?>"><?php echo $cart['product_name'?></a></strong>&nbsp;-&nbsp;<?php echo $cart['product_s_desc'?>

So what would I need to add in "mod_virtuemart_s5_dropdown_cart.php" to achieve this?  There is the following code at line 559 that calls the product name and url so something similar to this should be added I am assuming for the ['product_s_desc']

$minicart[$ci]['product_name'] = shopMakeHtmlSafe($ps_product->get_field($_SESSION['cart'][$i]["product_id"], "product_name"));

Thanks in advance!

I am sorry but something like this would require quite a bit of custom programming which we do not provide.
