Using WiX to create e-commerce website
Hi I am using WiX to create an e-commerce website. I wanted to create a form where user input their height and weight and when they click submit it accesses a table and return them their size. Can someone please help me figure out how to do that. Thanks

I'm not familiar with Wix, other than the idea is that you don't have to code. I'd image something like this is out of the limits of a WYSIWYG web editor, or it'll cost you a ton for the feature.
Do you have access to edit the hard code of our site?
Hi Kevin.. thanks for the reply... by "our site" do you mean teamtreehouse ? If so then yes, i am a member. Also to answer your question, I don't think that they let you change the code at Wix, but their competitor Weebly does allow access to the code. I could always switch to them if there was a way to create this functionality.
Thanks for taking the time. So it sounds like that I won't be able to create this. As a next step, If I wanted to create an e-commerce website, what would you recommend .. I mean I can learn whatever I need to learn at treehouse and use it. I believe for things such as shopping cart I can use the third-party add-ons etc. Appreciate your help.

If you're looking for a paid service to run your online store, Shopify is by far the easiest and probably cheapest (if you're a small shop). They also just acquired a firm of 25 designers so you can expect some incredible templates coming out. For shopping carts and payment processing, the best documentation and support I've found is with Stripe. They have insanely awesome tutorials, FAQs, and docs, as well as live chat support with their engineers. I haven't used Wix, but I've seen they do have "wix experts" you can hire for extra if you have specific questions.
FYI, I'm not associated to Shopify, Stripe, or Wix. This is just what I've used/heard about. Cheers!
