I used virtuemart with sucess some years ago but i do not know what happend to it because i got TONS of red lines when trying to install the latest package on 2.5
And the errors kept comming LOTS of them so i decided to trash it all before it completly destroyed my site.
Never again !
Thank you for taking the time to share your comments, VM2 is quite different
from VM1 in the same way as Joomla 1.0, 1.5 and now 2.0.
I agree there are some small issues that, we as a community need to address,
however these take time and never appear when first installed. We have found
many people presume VM2 is much like VM1 when it is not, like a 1960's mini
and a mini made in 2012, they are different, If you do a fresh install into
a fresh Joomla installation everything works, then you need to dedicate a
little time configuring it, this required configuration is slightly
different than the previous version, so people presume it does not work.
A prime example would be the strict error message you get when you first
install, demanding you create a directory for your invoices and downloads,
this is annoying, but in place for the shop owners safety and many people
ignore this, but it is there to help people, it's an important job to carry
out, yet some people have complained about it. If you have any problems, the
community forum is full of help, please head over there and you will find
your answers or community members that are prepared to help you.
