Attributes - forcing a customer to choose an attribute


Recommended Posts



Has anyone come across a simple way of forcing a customer to choose a specific attribute from the drop down list in the product description in order to reduce incorrect orders?

look for 'must select' contribution


I do not use the responsive bootstrap version since i coded my responsive version earlier, but i have bought every 28d of code package to support burts effort and keep this forum alive (albeit more like on life support).

So if you are still here ? What are you waiting for ?!


Find the most frequent unique errors to fix:

grep "PHP" php_error_log.txt | sed "s/^.* PHP/PHP/g" |grep "line" |sort | uniq -c | sort -r > counterrors.txt

Just installed Dynamic force attribute selection (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5208) on our website at www.custompowertools.co.uk and it is just what we needed!

Makes no change to products that don't have attributes but adds a "select option" entry for all attributes and if the buyer does not change the option when they click on buy now, they get a warning. Even tells them which needs updating. Perfect - Thanks Mika Alhainen, Lildog and wilderfalk!
