Hey guys!

Not too sure if I should have started a new topic?
I have VirtueMart 3.0.7
Where would this bit of code be found so I can do the same as I can not find the button code in this file?

Thanks so much

Hi GrahamSA,

Rather than changing the code, you can easily remove the button with a language override...

Go to Extensions/Language Manager/Overrides

Find
COM_VIRTUEMART_PRODUCT_DESC_TITLE
add an empty string

NO!!  That would just remove the title "Description" from the product details page.

Removing the product details button in VM3 categories can be done by hiding it with a css override (eg   div.vm-details-button {display:none;}  for the default VM template )

or

Edit the file components/com_virtuemart/sublayouts/products.php  and use the edited file as a template sublayouts override.   The code block is annotated - <?php // Product Details Button

As I assume the majority use 3rd party templates this would do nothing until all templaters updated to use this switch

That argument seems valid to never add a new feature to VM. Of course templaters will have to add this.. thats what they are payed for.

I was not suggesting that new features should not be added

If it were added the templaters would also have to cater for such a thing

div.vm-details-button {display:none;}   seems so much easier...  ;)

or over ride the sublayout/products.php  both a couple of mins work

plus I see so many commercial VM templates for sale that haven't even caught up with using sublayouts or still hard code their price displays etc ...
