Easy way to handle multiple variations (2 posts)

    I am seeking a fix for an apparent issue with wp e-commerce that becomes overloaded with multiple variations. I am needing to include several drop down options to my products such as size, color, thread color, font selection, design options, as well as a field for the user to enter his or her name for a personalized product. I cannot seem to locate anything that allows me to have the user type in their name or initials. This seems like a pretty easy request. So my two issues are:

    1) Need to create a field(s) for the user to type in a response and have it follow through to the shopping cart.

    2) How can I get the system handle multiple variations (up to 6 drop down options) without going into a perpetual update of over 1,000 variations?

    I wanted to followup by saying... my drop downs don't require any additional cost. So perhaps I can use attributes instead?

    Instructions for this are:

    1. Open Products > Attributes within the WordPress Administration

    2. Create new custom Product meta fields by clicking Add New

    3. Open Products and select a Product

    4. Fill in your custom Product meta value and copy the provided PHP snippet into your template

    I don't understand step 4. I am stuck.
