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.

Customise the VirtueMart 1.1 Related Products display
  • Joomla 1.5 + 1.0
  • VirtueMart 1.1

The default layout for the VirtueMart 1.1 Related Products display is a maximum of 4 products displayed in a horizontal row.

It's quite easy to change this and also to display rounded corners i.e <div><div><div><div> layout but you need to change the core files.

How to enable line wrap in the Joomla Geshi plugin
  • Joomla 1.5 + 1.0
  • GeSHi Plugin

The default css for the Joomla GeSHi (Generic Syntax Highlighter) plugin prevents any line wrapping until the end of any code snippet. This can often break your page layout.

By adding these couple of lines to the template css the code breaks nicely to fit within your layout.

Joomla! E-Commerce with VirtueMart book review
  • Joomla 1.0 & 1.5
  • VirtueMart 1.1

I've had the chance to read Packt Publishing's Joomla! E-Commerce with VirtueMart by Suhreed Sarkar and as a complete "how to" for Joomla and VirtueMart it's perfect.

It really does contain all you need to get up and running a full e-commerce site using these components.

Managing Manufacturers, Vendors, and Product Categories with Joomla! E-Commerce VirtueMart
  • Joomla 1.0 & 1.5
  • VirtueMart 1.1

Managing VirtueMart 1.1 Manufacturers, Vendors, and Product Categories can be quite confusing the first time.
But thanks to Packt Publishing I can publish the relevant chapter from "Joomla! E-Commerce with VirtueMart" by Suhreed Sarkar.

Using the VitueMart 1.1 Popup (vmPopupLink function)
  • Joomla 1.5
  • VirtueMart 1.1

The VirtueMart vmPopupLink function can come in handy when you need a simple information popup in your shop.
An example could be a link to your data protection policy at registration time or on your product pages.

Joomla 1.5, VirtueMart 1.1 & Joomfish 2.0
  • Joomla 1.5
  • VirtueMart 1.1
  • Joomfish 2.0

There is a lot of confused posts about how to enable Joomfish 2.0 compatibility with Joomla 1.5 & VirtueMart 1.1
Here (hopefully) are the steps and files needed to get these 3 components to work together.

Allow html formatting in VirtueMart's "Terms of Service"
  • Joomla 1.5 + 1.0
  • VirtueMart 1.1

If your "Terms of Service" that shows on the last stage of VirtueMarts checkout is more than a couple of lines long then it can be quite unreadable.

With this hack we can enable the text area (the "Legal information text (short version)." as VirtueMart calls it) of the VirtueMart configuration page (first tab) to accept html formatting.

Display Meta Tags in your Joomla Content
  • Joomla 1.5
  • Template

To raise your keyword count in your Joomla content for the Search Engines you can use native Joomla 1.5 calls to display the meta-keywords and meta-descriptions somewhere on your page.

This is a similar technique as Tag Clouds but has the advantage of being totally controllable by the author, the input fields are already present in the Joomla installation and the content appears as full sentences rather than a series of keywords.

Joomla 1.5 Automatic Login after Registration
  • Joomla 1.5
  • com_user

This change will log your Joomla 1.5 users in to your site as soon as they have completed the registration process.

Joomla 1.5 Automatic Login in after Registration This works only if the user doesn't have to confirm his/her registration by email.
The registration welcome email will still be sent.
