Add text to the inputbox box of a custom field.
« on: July 04, 2014, 13:46:12 pm »
I have encountered this problem - Info: To add this product into your cart you have to select a product variant on the details page. I found the problem. On my website we add personalizations which is a custom attribute. In the custom attribute if this left empty it won't be added to the cart. Howerver, if you type in any character it allows you to add to the cart. So I want to have text already in the customer attribute box so there is no problems.

a long while since I worked on VM1.1 but is there "default" value you can use in your custom field?
Or find the file that generates it (in theme somewhere from memory) and add a value="fill in option" or what ever to the text field
