Generic Child Variants broken in category view
« on: October 31, 2015, 00:25:11 am »
I’m trying to set up Generic Child Variants in VirtueMart 3.0.9 with Joomla! 3.4.3.
But having  trouble with category view.

The variant drop down list works fine in detail view, but not in category view – the drop down list and ‘product details’ buttons are missing and ‘choose a variant’ has become a broken button (select hand appears on mouseover but unclickable)  As shown in the picture….

How to troubleshoot this?

Download our last version please,

The reason is that you use the position ontop as in our example. But the browse view only gathered all customfields with position "addtocart". The new version loads both positions, so you get the dropdown also in the category browse view.
I should fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member
