The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

VirtueMart and I had a rocky beginning, but that was mostly due to the fact that I started out on joomla 1.5 and tried to make it work with the lastest VM. Now that I have updated my Joomla to 2.5 VM2 is working perfectly. I'm not a programmer so I wanted to find a solution that I could handle.

I never used VM1 so I can't compare, but VM2 seems pretty easy to setup get working. There was one hiccup at the end of my setup where there wasn't a good solution for calculating taxes in States like WA and CA, but they recently contracted with AvaTax and now my tax calculations are super easy.

Highly recommend this product if you are using Joomla 2.5!

It is interesting that you did not use VM1, many people who used VM1 maybe expect VM2 to be the same when it is not, and this has caused confusion. Thank you on behalf of the whole VirtueMart community who equally deserve your kind words.

ActiveHelper LiveHelp
I was looking for a simple live chat solution for Joomla. Activehelper was super easy to install and configure and the support panel has many powerful features that not only allow you support your online customers, but also to give you insight on the visitors that are on your site.

The technical support is Excellent and the $99 premium support package is well worth it.

I highly recommend this product for anybody who is looking to implement live chat on their Joomla website.

I have been using the AllVideo pluguin on my Joomla 1.5 site for a few months now and I love how easy it makes it to show a video on my site. The plugin installs easily, the documentation is great and even I can adjust the settings :) If you need to have video on your Joomla site, it doesn't get any easier than AllVideo. I highly recommend this plug-in.
