Hi… I’ve got a somewhat unique situation where specific input from the user is needed in order to make a purchase. Specifically, they have to enter their own particular attribute in order to ship the right part, so to speak. For instance, let’s say the store sells bed liners (and this may not be the best example). The customer has decided on which one he wants. The store owner, however, needs to know what size his truck bed is in order to ship the bed liner (again not the most practical example, but does illustrate my point). Is there a way to add text fields to allow the customer to input width, length, depth (as opposed to say a drop-down menu)? Admittedly I haven’t spent as much time with Magento as I’d like so I apologize if the answer is obvious.

Thanks!
