I am working on my catalog now for www.fastshafts.com/catalog/default.php and, we make driveshafts for cars...and we custom make certain lenghts for them. Thing is I need to have a manual imput field for the user to define what length that they want...so we know to build it this certain lenght. I also want to have a user comment field at the bottom somehow....

Patrick,

 

There is a contribution called "Option Type feature" (I think). It is available in the contributions section. I have it installed on MS1 and it works well. It is an easy install however.

Ah Patrick......It should be your catalog/includes/configure.php and all you need to add is this part:

 

// CLR 020605 defines needed for Product Option Type feature.

 define('PRODUCTS_OPTIONS_TYPE_SELECT', 0); //TO DO: move to configuration table in db.

 define('PRODUCTS_OPTIONS_TYPE_TEXT', 1);   //TO DO: move to configuration table in db.

 define('TEXT_PREFIX', 'txt_');             //TO DO: move to configuration table in db.

 define('PRODUCTS_OPTIONS_VALUE_TEXT_ID', 0);  //Must match id for user defined "TEXT" value in db table TABLE_PRODUCTS_OPTIONS_VALUES

:lol: :lol: When I read your post the first time the sun was hitting my monitor just right and I didn't see the line between the two parts....I was trying to figure out what you had done... :lol: :lol: :lol:

 

Okay.....Using your phpmyadmin....Delete the all the entries in that table except the very first one.

Then open your admin to the attributes section.

Okay.....I'm now stumped......Did you chose TEXT from the Options Values section AFTER you clicked the insert in the Products Options section?
