Its a lot different now, but you will be happier with the product, when you get used to it.

It took me a bit to get used to it, especially as it is has a redundancy factor.

But that is good too as you can now have multiple fly pages.

Keep at guys, you are rockin it!

Yes. The new template system may be more flexible. But that also means you need to start from scratch when upgrading. Will there be some guidance in how to upgrade to the current template system?

If you mean you have to start from scratch on general templates, that is not the case.

I am using a JoomlaXTC template specfically made for VM1 and I am able to successfully use it with VM2.

The key is remembering that flypages, et al are now stored as part of your Joomla templating rather than VMs.

You mean that all VM 1.1 theme templates can be used in VM 2.0 without changes, or just mean the Joomla templates?
Can you share how to move the theme templates to VM2.0?
