    Default How to MAKE customer select an option before checking out?

    Hi all....Just spent 20 hours setting up attributes and options for each of my products and realized after the fact, a customer can add the product to his cart without selecting any options.

    Is there a quick way to make the options/attributes mandatory? In other words, I have say 5 product option dropdowns for each product. I want to be sure all 5 dropdowns had a selection made before a customer can add a product to their cart. so in the end, they can only add a product to their cart that is fully customized to their needs. If a customer is able to skip the adding options process, my orders will be all messed up.

    Any ideas? Im hoping its simple but Im a bit burned out today from staring at this computer.

    Thanks!

    Phil

    You can add one more value to the option
    Xall it select - pick - choose - - or what ever you like
    Add it to the option list for a product
    Make it default and display only - give it lowest sort order
    Check that it is first and in the dropdown
