Im a Drupal themer looking to streamline the process in which people can view and add products to the cart. While it is my belief that people should click on a product and read all of the info before buying something, I still see need to have the "add to cart" section on listing pages be more elaborate than it is "out of the box".
Im attaching an illustration that may better explain what I need, in case. Basically, Id want the attributes (options) dropdown seen on individual product pages to be present on the product listing page as well. Then, if they already are familiar with this product and just want to proceed to filling their cart, than they can do so. Below the product attributes dropdown woudl be the "add to cart" button. This is because my products require an option to be selected before they would be able to add it to their cart (we need to know how many years of a sub that they want it for).
Any suggestions if this kind of modification needs to be done via the views backend or hard coded into the tpl.php of that view?
