Title: VirtueMart 1.1.2 on Joomla 1.5
Post by: creatormusic on January 14, 2009, 11:50:55 am
Hello,

I've installed Joomla and VirtueMart. Everyting is installed ok. Now i want to show some articles on my home page. I have sample data installed. I've installed and enabled the modules and with the jdoc tags it is possible to show the modules. None of these modules however will show articles. Does somebody know how i can show articles? I have tried this code: {product_snapshot:id=7,showname=y,showimage=y,showprice=y} , but it doesn't work. I got this error message: : Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ':' in… on line 5. I've searched forums for hours, but i cannot find the answer.

I dont need a complete answer (i would appreciate howerer), but can someone put me on the right way? I am relative new on Joomla.

Greetings and many thanks
Richard

You will not be able to use jdoc tags with VM as they are for templates, unless I'm mistaken. http://docs.joomla.org/Jdoc_statements

Your example is not very specific. Just exactly where are you trying to put your code? Are you building a template?

VM doesn't use articles, there are specific places in the products, such as the details.

Joomla does use articles and you would have to look for an extension specific to VM to publish shop content in articles. or, you can copy and paste shop-items (sometimes) into an article in Joomla, if you know what your doing.

Let me know if this helps.
