ReqText is a VirtueMart 3.x/4.x plugin to add the functionality of required customer input fields for a product. This is a feature the current version of VirtueMart does not have.

The plugin will catch the click on the "Add to Cart" button to check if a customer input field is required and shows a "This is required' message. The plugin can add radio buttons, checkboxes, text fields, textareas and dropdown lists. When multiple choices are set they can be presented with individual prices (extra costs) when needed.

Your customers must first enter a text or make a selection out of given choices before adding the product to the cart (only when the required option is set ofcourse).

Why do I need ReqText?

As stated above – the current version of VirtueMart does not offer the possibility to add customer input fields that must be filled (required) before ordering a product. Also missing is the option to add radio buttons or checkboxes. You can set the options for each product individually and this can be achieved using the Custom Fields option in the VirtueMart backend.

Form fields

Add required text or textarea form fields. You can limit to only numeric or alphanumeric input (or a combination).
Add required dropdown list form fields. Set the selection to only one or multiple choices.
Add required radio buttons or checkbox form fields. You can use multiple choices for the checkbox input.
Add required datepicker form fields.
Fields with multiple options can be set to use a seperate price for each selected option.
Use required custom color selections so your customers can choose a color when selecting a product.



Each ReqText form field can be set to required or not. When required a field must be filled before the Add to cart button van be used.
The Required Field message is shown using the Poshy Tip jQuery library (
ReqText is fully multilingual using the default Joomla! language system. The Dutch and English language files are already included.
After the license purchase a full manual is available for download which describes the plugin extensivly.
