Joomla is a very popular and extendable CMS (Content Management System) that is used by 10's of thousands of websites.
VirtueMart is the e-commerce component for Joomla.
We at GJC Web Design have used this system in many of our designs including this one. In fact we specialise in developing, modifying and adapting Joomla & VirtueMart websites.
If you need any help or advice just contact us.

Below are links to various tips, developments and examples.

New Joomla Show Images Module released

Today we released another free module.
A client ask for a module to show a set of images from a folder. There was nothing available from Joomla Extensions so we coded this.

Separate links for Briask ImageSlideShow module images Part 2
  • Joomla 1.5

The ImageSlideShow module from briask.com is an excellent and simple image gallery which shows any images from a designated folder and have one link from the images. Clients (and I see on Briask's own forum) have asked whether it would be possible to have individual links to individual images.
This hack allows you to link any image to any url.

Wrong currency symbol shown in VirtueMart Paypal checkout
  • VirtueMart 1.1

This is actually a major bug in the VirtueMart Paypal integration. In a multi-currency store the currency symbol is completely ignored by the Paypal payment module and is passed as the VirtueMart store default currency symbol
I found this solution in the VirtueMart Forums.

Disable Joomla php error reporting with @ (at) symbol
  • Joomla 1.5
  • VirtueMart 1.1

I have had a couple of occasions when uncooperative, client chosen hosts have overridden the Joomla error reporting setting.
In this case unimportant "Notice" errors can be disabled from within the code.

Change the VirtueMart Currency Symbols for Multi-Currency
  • Joomla 1.5
  • VirtueMart 1.1

The VirtueMart default currency symbol is configured in the Admin-->Store-->Edit Store-->Currency Display Style but in a multi-currency Shop you just have the default currency symbols like EUR and USD for the other currencies.
I found this hack to solve this in the VirtueMart forums.

Select VirtueMart Currency By Language

Have seen a few times the request for the VirtueMart currency to be set by the chosen language.
After a fair amount of trial and error I've finally got this to work.

How to Customize the VirtueMart Home Page (Shop Page)
  • VirtueMart 1.1

If you make a link just to the VirtueMart component as many do as a Front Page to their shop you get a rather boring list of top level categories and/or category thumbnails.
It can be made a lot more interesting and helpful to your visitor.

If you have different module layouts on different pages the thank you and other acknowledgement messages (subscribe, un-subscribe etc ) from ccNewsletter component won't return the correct module layout.
This is because the return urls are lacking an Itemid.
