I've been battling with this simple problem for weeks and have gotten nowhere. This is a last stop for advice/help.
I am using the Magento appliance to set up an e-commerse site. I am selling material, and would like to allow the shopper to not only choose the material and quantity, but also to type in the length and width of the material he requests. For example 1m x 2m. The price should then be calculated by price-per-sqr-mtr X Area (LengthxWidth).
This seems like something so simple, but the problem is I have no experience in any web based language, and frankly have no clue how to do this.
I would be extremely greatful to anyone who could iether tell me what to do (keeping in mind that I am web-language impaired) or help me do it. I would be willing to pay a fair price for a solution to this problem.
