    Having the items permanently switch to sold just from going in the cart is a problem for me. I know when I shop online, I put everything I might consider in my cart, then I compare those items, pick the one I like best, and remove everything else. I'm likely not the only person who does this. Or if somebody accidentally deleted something from their cart, they couldn't put it back.

    Is there a way to make it so that rather than the quantity going down when something is added to the cart, have it go down when the cart contents are sent to payment processing? You know like how some sites have a note about putting an item in your cart doesn't reserve it for you and it can still go out of stock until you've completed check out? Is this possible?

    And I think it's wonderful that you're helping people customize with your scripts; they're really clever.
