Is it possible to pass info from the content display to the cart?
Let me explain my situation so I can show why I need this. Maybe there is a better solution.
I am trying to develop a site for a photographer. He wants many options available to purchase. Different print styles, types of paper, styles of mounting, all of which will have size options as well.
Dealing with these attributes on Ubercart was a nightmare. There was no good way to organize them. After seeing the demo with the coffee mug, Commerce seemed like it would offer me a solution to my problem.
So I set up a product type for each print medium, and created a product for each size. Then created a display type as directed. The first difference from the coffee mug example is that instead of putting the image in each product so the pic changes when the product changes, I put the image into my content display. My reasoning is the image will never change, only the options.
Well anyone who knows commerce can guess what happened next. All looks okay on the product page, except when I add to cart it just adds the print style and size, with no reference to which photo was selected.
Is there another way I should I approach this? Or go back to Ubercart and deal with the attribute nightmare there?
