« on: July 02, 2015, 16:19:25 pm »
Hi guys i am trying to add a product short description to my frontpage/featured items. Can anyone tell me how i can do this? I have created my own template @modules\mod_virtuemart_product\tmpl

I would like to add the short description to the featured items. Does anyone know how to do this?

Versions + build:
Joomla:            3.4.1
Virtuemart:      3.0.9
PHP:                5.4.24

Other information:
Website URL:        LOCALHOST

Kind regards,

Hi Patrick,

Initially this did not work. I got it working by ripping the source code from the product page, there are some additional parameters in there that need to be used in order to make this work.

Thx for your help, i thought i was using a function that was not avalable in the FP page you answer pointed me in the right direction. +1 m8
