It would be relatively simple to add a "faux" product if there is no items in the cart at the start of the checkout. WOuld only take an extra "if" statement in one place.
OK, this was slightly more "problematic" than I envisaged. I had to;
1. Very minor recode of includes/boxes/shopping_cart.php to enable the donation to show as a monetary amount.
2. 1 extra "if" statement in checkout_shipping.php to add the faux product, and addition of "skip shipping" contribution as well.
3. Minor recode of shopping_cart.php to enable the donation box and update/continue/checkout buttons even if nothing in cart.
Works ok though as far as I can see. Tomorrow I will do a video and post on the blog.
