The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

VirtueMart appears to have been around for a while and up until the security risks that are appearing on the Joomla site, it doesnt't appear to be having satisfactory reviews like many. I had no problems downloading and installing it, but when it came to its implementation, a lot more is desired. We live in a digital age whereby a lot of people require digital downloads and I am quite suprised that the suppliers of the software do not correct the issues related to this requirement. I have spent a total of 45 hrs trying to configure the digital download functionality with paypal payments and the same prob - able to configure paypals and receive a confirmation from paypal and virtuemart - but yet still no Download Id. Searching for solutions on the forum seems to be pointless as these issues appear to be around since 2007 and I would be concerned that such fixes have not been thought of since then. I have 2 sites to deliver using VM and both intend to use digital downloads and physical shipping of goods. Since it wont effectively meet this requirement (and I am a site developer - and not programmer) then sadly I will be looking for another product.
