Strangeness with Simple Options

I want to add some simple options for some products. I've done so here:

On the detail page, why is is showing ellipses? My field names are not long and should fit. (Although I'd love to be able to have longer field names).

Then, if you fill them out, on the cart page, the field names have the word "here" concatenated on them. What's up with that?

Thanks for your help.

simple options are limited to showing 12 characters in the name by the following code on the webassist/plugins/shopping_cart/add_to_cart.php page:

<?php echo substr($row_AddedOptions['OptionGroupName'], 012); ?><?php if(strlen($row_AddedOptions['OptionGroupName']) > 12) echo "... "?>:</label>

you could increase that by editing the 12 to a higher number:

<?php echo substr($row_AddedOptions['OptionGroupName'], 018); ?><?php if(strlen($row_AddedOptions['OptionGroupName']) > 18) echo "... "?>:</label>

If you set it to show to many characters, it can break the display though.

to fix the problem of adding "here" to the entered value, edit the following code:

<input type="hidden" name="SingleOptions[]" id="SingleOptions_<?php echo($row_AddedOptions['OptionGroupID']); ?>" value="<?php echo($row_AddedOptions['OptionGroupName']."here"); ?>">


<input type="hidden" name="SingleOptions[]" id="SingleOptions_<?php echo($row_AddedOptions['OptionGroupID']); ?>" value="<?php echo($row_AddedOptions['OptionGroupName'].""); ?>">
