Our site http://topicalcovers.com/
is running on Vmart 3.0.16 & Joomla 3.5.1 & PHP 5.4.45-0 and using Joomla Art Purity II (T3 Framework).
All caching and JS minifying/compressing (from T3 framework and Joomla) has been disabled!
Here is what happens:
When buying/adding an item to the basket -> the cart gets updated (popup) -> go to the cart (Show cart)-> item is not there! -> hard refresh the page-> the item is there.
Same thing happens when you add an item -> the cart gets updated (popup)->click the home button (menu) -> the cart is not updated
But it doesn't happen when you click one on the categories -> the cart is displayed correctly on the right!
I can see that when clicking the HOME button in the menu there are no hits in the apache access log, so the site is served from local cache (which would explain this): but all caching is disabled and I need the user to really refresh the page so how can I force this hard reload/refresh on every click?!
This also happens with the Beez2, Beez3 and Beez5 templates. So it doesn't seem to be a template issue (hence posted in General Questions).
It seems the 2 views associated with the HOME button and Cart are option=com_virtuemart&view=virtuemart and option=com_virtuemart&view=cart. Is the problem maybe there?
