The EPiStore cart item attributes (defined in XML) are great for fixed choices like clothes' sizes. But how can I store free text attributes like the contents of different text fields of a business card or the engraving of a ring?
Also, will EPiStore understand that different variations (attributes set differently) of the same cart item are not the same? If not, adding a size M t-shirt and a size L t-shirt will result in "merging" the two to one row in the cart. Or is there another way to stop the cart from merging the items?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I disassembled the Dll and found out that:
If you are using standard admin site for delivering orders than you will get a "Cannot find name for attribute value" exception when you try to open them. because epistore expects the values to exists in the options list.
Ah, too bad, I never did that. Actually the solution I was sketching back then never went into production.
