Hi,
This is the first time i am working with magento, on creating an ecommerce website, which i am testing on localhost. In this website i need the user to select the attributes on the product.

e.g. I have a product called Blackforest Cake, and the admin has set the attribute with Shape = Circle, Topping = Chocolate Flakes, etc.

Now the customer comes in and he wants to change the shape from Circle to Rectangle and Topping from Chocolate Flakes to Cherries. He also wants to specify one more attribute, Message, which is a textarea, where he can put the greeting message, like Happy Birthday.

Is it possible to do this in Magento? How should I go about it?

Thanks

No, customers cannot changes attributes, that`s the wrong way, you have to use product custom options.
