Does anyone know of any way to add a section on the checkout page where a customer can leave a comment/instructions that can be tied to their order?

You could use Magemaven Order Comment for this.

  • Thanks @Fooman I am a big fan of your extensions! I actually installed the Magemaven Order comment extension you recommended and I'm wondering if you could recommend how to use this with one of your extensions. Specifically, "Fooman Email Attachments" which we are mainly using for the "Print Order Confirmation" functionality. I'm wondering how I could get the comments left by the user to show up on the Order Confirmations we print. Thanks Nov 2, 2013 at 22:34
  • Something like this $page->drawText(Mage::helper('ordercomment')->escapeHtml($order->getCustomerComment()), 35, $this->y, 'UTF-8'); $this->y -=15; added to /app/code/community/Fooman/EmailAttachments/Model/Order/Pdf/Order.php should get you close. As a sidenote our Pdf Customiser extension supports comments by the Magemaven extension out of the box. Nov 3, 2013 at 1:59
  • Thanks for the response. Are you saying it supports the extension out of the box for even for the PDF prints? Nov 4, 2013 at 17:23
  • EmailAttachments does not offer support out of the box - see the code change above. For Pdf Customiser support is included and no code edits are required. Nov 4, 2013 at 18:29
  • thanks. I just want to clarify that we're speaking of the same thing. When I go under Sales>Orders> and I bring up an order I get a "Print" button, compliments of your extension :). When I print this out I am not seeing the comments left by the customer. I'm not sure if the PDF that I get when I hit the "Print" button is the same as what is attached to an email.
