Online Bookstore - Book descriptions to show ISBN number
« on: February 08, 2013, 08:17:17 am »
I have to create an online bookstore. Using Joomla 2.5 and have installed Virtuemart. Can someone please help in telling me how I get the product description to show the ISBN number for the book. I don't have html experience and if I can buy an extension to support this it would be most helpful. It should also show the following descriptions: Title, Short Description, Image, Price, Currency, Published, Author, Category and Sub-category. Should also have a import/export feature as the lists that I have to import is very long. Can someone please help.  :-\

I think that custom fields would be the best option for ISBNs.  See this tutorial:

There is also information in the forum about their use.

Please mention your VirtueMart, Joomla and PHP versions when asking a question in this forum

IMPORTANT:  VM2 versions before 2.6.10 and VM3 versions before 3.0.8 are insecure. Updating is strongly advised.

Currently using VM3.0.10 on Joomla 3.4.4 PHP 5.4.29

Currently testing VM3.0.11 on J3.4.4
