Is it possible to enter custom text as an attribute?  i.e. for making personalized goodies?
My shop has 100’s of those products and I want to switch to Magento ASAP wink !

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Thanks!

hi
yes it is possible, you can create the attribute and under
Catalog Input Type for Store Owner you choose TEXT FIELD

at the bottom choose Visible on Catalog Pages on Front-end -> YES

with this configuration under Manage Label / Options you have a text field to put your attribute name

add this attribute to your favourite attribute set and go to create a new product with this new attribte set

you will see a text field and here you can write whatever you want

this text wil be displayed at the bottom of your item in frontend

I think viepie is talking about a user-customizable text box. Such that when they are viewing the item on the front end, they can add a customization text to their item. It seems like you’re talking about something to be customized by the store owner, chiaraweb.

It will be available in 1.1 at the end of this month:

Or if you search the forums, someone created a Made To Order module that works pretty well.
