Customers customize product with typed text

Looking for a solution where customers can customize a product. I have had quite a few custom shirt/mug/hat/etc companies contact me to help them with their websites (no idea why that industry keeps picking me lately). I love using Shopify for most clients, but was wondering if it has the ability to allow customers to type in some text so they can customize a product.

Hi,

It’s dead simple… look for cart.note and cart.attributes to send text back to the admin with an order.

There are plenty of posts on this.

Not dead simple. Not all products need customization. Apparantly you either allow every product to have attributes or none – I need some. I found the documentation on cart.note (not what I need) and cart.attributes (close, but no cigar)

Hi,

When you are in cart.liquid, you have access to every product in the cart via liquid. What is so hard about examining each product and deciding “Hey, this one, product ABC needs customization, I think I will deal with that using javascript and cart.attributes. On the other hand, this one here, JKL does not, I will ignore it.”? You can combine liquid with javascript. You can customize each and every product as you wish.

So, if it is not dead simple, perhaps I will change my opinion of it to a walk in the park.

I know this topic is over a month old but chastising posts are pointless and drive off potential Shopify users. Most of them aren’t web developers. If they were they’d be using an ASP or PHP shopping cart on their own web servers. I don’t know many people that know liquid and new users won’t know their way around the Shopify templating system either.

The search function of this forum is hardly user-friendly, if you don’t type exactly the right wording it comes back with no results. In fact, when I typed customize product this is the only topic that came back at all.

Simply restating the existing posts or providing links to them is much more helpful than saying look it up… most people have already looked, which is why they post in the first place.

@Dane, Unfortunately, when you donate your time and advice for free, for all to benefit… you can get a little testy when folks take your advice and then fail to really dig it.

Shopify is a system that to my continued amazement has a % of users who know nothing of Ruby, Liquid, HTML or Javascript and yet they run stores, a % who can actually manipulate and customize the system, and others who just pay people to do it for them…

My point is.. you have to do the work. Like anything worthwhile, you have to invest time and effort. In the politest of terms… RTFM applies to Shopify just like it does to anything else…If someone shows that they have done that to the best of their ability, and posts a question, you can bet they will get the help they need to get over the hump.
