Could you use native X3 image descriptions for this?
Oh, I wasn't clear enough: I meant comments that site visitors can add to the items. So they can for example say which size they want a print in or in a proofing situation talk about processing they want done.

You mean be able to include one comment for each item in the cart after it's added?

Exactly.
I have to admit, this is reaching insane interface and contact form levels. Auto-expanding comment input-fields would have to find space in the already-crowded cart interface, and all this needs to get sent through the self-hosted contact form emailer. If I was going to make something like this, I would consider a separate dedicated app made specifically for client/owner orders purely from a functional perspective ... Something looking more like ourFiles.gallery. Now that I am 60-70% complete with this complicated plugin, I'm actually not 100% sure what it's doing in X3.

Nevermind then. I never know how complicated to implement something is, so I am happy to accept that my ideas are unrealistic. But I'd rather mention them and learn that than not mentioning them and later on learning it would have been easy.

I didn't mean to sound negative. I think for now, "comments" will not make it for first release, as I need to make some priorities, but we can always build upon this cart later.

Here are some more screenshots [incomplete design]. When user clicks "order" a custom form (from cart options) appears, which needs to be validated before the order gets sent. Everything needs to be customizable, translatable and has to work across all skins, layouts and font combinations. As you may understand, there are quite a few layers of technicalities.

  • Open the folder of the shooting in Lightroom’s Library mode.
  • Press the "<" key (to the left of the Z) to display the filters at the top.
  • Select the "Text" category there.
  • Select "Filename" and "Contains" from the drop-down menus.
  • Paste the filenames from your clipboard into the search field.
  • Now you will only see the images you have saved in the selection
Kind of a stupid question especially in this topic but is there or will be a Lightroom plugin in the future?

Also you've asked (first post) why would you do a limitation on number of items  in the Card. I've run into a situation that the client or the family had "X" amount of images for further editing or free print out options. That's at least my case might be stupid but still worth asking.

Thanks for the great work !

Will consider it for X4 which I might start later this year (X4 will be a free upgrade and build upon X3, but with a new core, new concepts and new panel, I don't have more info ...).

I have already added "limit" as an option for the new pending cart plugin.

This cart plugin is quite generic, so users will have to make the best of it. In regards to limit, what happens when you navigate between pages with different limits? Global cart vs per-page cart? It's a bit messy to be honest, but will have to deal with it ...
