Title: Shopping cart causing problems
Post by: 0graham0 on January 04, 2009, 16:48:31 pm
Hi,

I cannot get virtuemart to work correctly if I have "Show mini cart" enabled for the virtuemart module. When I attempt to load a page from any section of the site (within the virtuemart store, or outside of the store) I get a blank page in Firefox 3 or the message "The website cannot display the page / Most likely causes: The website is under maintenance. / The website has a programming error." in internet explorer. The same problem occurs if i have "show mini cart" turned off, but I enable the VirtueMart Shopping Cart module.

I am using Joomla 1.5.7 with virtuemart 1.1.2. This is a clean install of virtuemart with sample data installed, nothing has been tampered with other than turning "show mini cart" on and off.

Any help is greatly appreciated

HI,

I was wondering how did you setup the "Shopping Cart".
I am just a starter, but i am not able to add a Finisched Shopping Cart.
So after i collect the products i want to go to a "Shopping Cart", but i am not able to create such menu item.

Please help me, or guide me where to find such information.

Best regards Marcel

Sorry snoeckm, I never used the shopping cart extensively since it would not allow my website pages to be loaded.

In Joomla administration have you gone to "Extensions->Modules" and then selected "mod_virtuemart" and selected "Show Mini-Cart"?

Also, you could try using the other shopping cart module? From http://virtuemart.net/documentation/User_Manual/Automatic_Installation.html:

"In Mambo/Joomla! 1.0 click Installers ⇒ Modules. In Joomla! 1.5 click Extensions ⇒ Install/Uninstall in the Top Menu.

mod_virtuemart_cart

    "Mini-Cart Module"

    Displays the mini-cart for the customer with a link to the cart page."

Good luck.
