  • You set it up as any regular Joomla module. There are 3 parameters you can tweak: one is mandatory to be set up, the other two not.
    The mandatory parameter to set is choosing a product type from the list. You need to select ONE type, the module works only when a product type is selected.
    Obviously, prior to set up the module you need to set up at least one product type in VirtueMart and to assign at least a product to it. See the manual on how to do this:
    Manual 1
    The other 2 parameters, which are optional, are self explaining:

    1. Text above is the optional text you can add to be displayed before the module's content.
    2. The ItemID is the Joomla ItemID which will be added to the result pages - useful if you set up the site with full use of this feature of Joomla (for example you associate modules, templates with various menu items.
    You can leave both at default values.

    I highly recommend Denes for any Joomla related work. He has deep expertise, does what he says he'll do, and shows you how to do if he feels it will save you money. He's the only Joomla technical resource I plan on using in the future!
