On the older Virtuemart you installed different modules so you could add menu`s on the front end. How do you do this in the new virtuemart ? I wan`t product categories, shopping cart, login and search on the front-end. But in the modules page in my joomla installation, it is nowhere I can do this. I also checkt inside of the virtuemart component and don`t find it there either. Thanks for your help in advanced.

P.S Sorry for my English. :)
