I've noticed that the "add to cart" links in OC use javascript links. Is it ok to use a more simple link like this?:

Code: Select all

<a class="button" href="<?php echo $product_id; ?>" title="Add to Cart" ><span>add to cart</span></a>
Are the javascript add to cart links there for a reason? for example, preventing search engine crawlers from going to the checkout, etc.??

Yes links like that are fine, I would add a rel="nofollow" for search engines though. It is done like that as 'add to cart' is typically an ajax post (not requiring a page reload) ~~ doesn't need to be done that way though.
