VM Migrator is brilliant!

Posted on 24 November 2015
I used VM Migrator to update an old Joomla 1 site to Joomla 3 with Virtuemart. And it all worked!
Ease of use
Pretty easy. Set up the old database and file paths, and new ones, choose what you're actually copying and go.
Support was brilliant. Thought a prob with VM was to do with migrator but turned out it was my fault. Support fixed my prob anyway!
Documentation to set up was all straightforward
Value for money
Saved me heaps of time and stress. Well worth it. I'm going to upgrade a store soon with 10, 000 products. Try doing that manually.
I used this to: I transferred a Joomla 1 and Virtuemart 1 to latest versions and will do a shop with 10,000 products soon from Joomla 1.5. Will also use to populate normal non VM joomla sites when upgrading because it does articles etc as well. Copies VM products, categories, orders, payment etc

K2 Fields anywhere!

Posted on 16 September 2014
I used this to put K2 fields within a K2 item. Like, in the middle of it. This was the only way I could do it. I didn't want them at the top or bottom, so I put in a load module command in the content and set split content to the module position Worked like a charm! I only wanted the k2 items but there are heaps of options. You can basically put k2 info anywhere. Had a couple of questions and got great, and quick support too.

Excellent Product and support

Easy to set up and use. I had one small prob with a display which was probably to do with my template. Developer helped straight away! Thanks a lot.


Simple and Excellent

I had a client delete a page today, so thought i'd look for a content versioning component. This one is simple to use and worked first pop. Had it going in about a minute. No front end probs. Brilliant.


Excellent Service

I wanted to be able to have a customer in the front end log in, choose products, choose quote instead of purchase, then the backend shop owner sees that there is a quote, and can edit the pricing and send back a revised quote. Then the customer can accept it and go through with normal purchase but there was nothing available. VMQuote was the closest but was only backend, so I contacted the developer and they made it happen for a very reasonable fee. Very pleased with the expertise and service of these guys. Happily recommend.

This is a necessity, can't get the redirection message to show though...still, better than redirecting to the home page. Thanks
Owner's reply: Hi & thanks for your kind review!
Regarding the redirection message - I've seen 2 possible causes for the message not showing up:

1) Your template may not have proper links to the system css files. If this is the case, your joomla site will not show any system messages.
Go to joomlaroot/templates/YOUR ACTIVE TEMPLATE/index.php and see if the following links are present (usually near the top of the file):
/templates/system/css/system.css" type="text/css" />
/templates/system/css/general.css" type="text/css" />

2)If the system cache plugin is enabled, joomla may show a stale page that does not include the redirect message. To fix this, enable the plugin parameter that clears the page cache on login failures.


Essential for Joomla

Posted on 06 June 2008
I've used JCE at least two, maybe three years and it was what made me decide on Joomla. It is essential. Ryan is quick on the forums. Just quietly, I probably wouldn't use Joomla without JCE, (Although Joomla is also brilliant) Now it is native for 1.5 and really good improvements like multiple upload and resize, group access and way more. Can insert Flash or mp3 files easy as. A must have under every tree at christmas.
