A few days back I installed Store Manager on my PC and played with it for some time. You can access almost all VM items in a normal Windows (Mac, Linux too) program wich is so much faster comparing with the VM backend... After entering FTP settings and root folder Store Manager download a copy of the database to your PC, you can add, delete, clone or change products, prices, categories, manufacturers, shoppers, alter their attributes and when you're finished you just "Post changes to Web" and you're done... So much faster and no more fights with the silly Joomla editors anymore but a verry stable HTML editor (raw (code) and WYSIWYG) wich is a pleasure to work with. You can import, export, edit DB tables, backup DB with just a simple click... The program is not cheap but you can do the job about 3-5 times faster so the money is well spend and comes back within days. You can try it for free for 30 days and when you're not satisfied there's a 30 days money-back guarantee too... I just worked with it for a few days now, I have millions of extensions but this one is my new number one... A must have!!!
