There are more powerful, feature rich ecommerce systems out there that are both easier to use, less buggy and with better documentation. Your clients will thank you.
One VM2 project was one too many.
Also, I have not found a way to hide selected module positions for smaller screen sizes which would make the templates much more suitable for mobiles.
Having said that, I have not found a better template creation tool to date.
thank you for your review.
I'm a bit surprised, are you sure that you have used the responsive layout manager ? because you can select to not show a module position on each 4 mobile resolutions, and the mobile css automatically resize the images as requested.
Next time, ask me :)
The latest site is a subscription site combining Docman, Akeeba Subscriptions and Metamod. With this combination I can present a different subscription module with Metamod to charge different subscriptions for different countries without subscribers knowing their is a difference and automatically restrict access to some documents (via subscription groups) for subscribers in countries where we don't have publishing rights.
Can't thank the publishers enough.
Having said that, the free "Community" version already has a number of advanced features that for other longer established ecommerce extensions are either not available or are commercial addons. These include related products, stock control on unlimited attribute combinations and much more. In my experience the software is also very stable and development is active.
Yes, if you want support you have to pay and quite rightly. Having said that the forum is active and helpful and the code is well written and easy to follow.
This is an extremely feature rich product for a free extension and not suitable for someone who wants a shop in a box without some serious configuration. On the other hand if you are prepared to take the time to learn the product you can have a very powerful ecommerce site. 4 stars because it is still a beta release and by definition is not perfect (yet).
So often an extension is almost right if it only had one more parameter to suit the specific need - this one has more than you need but you can pretty much ignore the ones you don't want. I had this up an running in minutes.
