New stable Release Candidate 3.0.18 released, please anyone test.
« on: September 13, 2016, 20:05:50 pm »
This is the rough list of the changes in vm3.0.16 to vm3.0.18

Important for shops with overrides:
The new js for using ajax for reloading product content uses now always the same class. The class is "product-container". Just search for the div with "productdetails-view productdetails" and add product-container.

In case you want the ajax reload within a product modul, you need to adjust the overrides here also. Just search for
Code: [Select]
<li class="<?php echo $pwidth ?> <?php echo $float ?> ">
and change it to
Code: [Select]
<li class="product-container <?php echo $pwidth ?> <?php echo $float ?> ">

Just search for
Code: [Select]
"echo vmJsApi::writeJS();" in the default.php of your cart overrides, replace it by
Code: [Select]
?><div style="display:none;" id="cart-js">
<?php echo vmJsApi::writeJS(); ?>
</div>


For a correct setup of some payments using their own layout, you need to move the main opening div a bit lower than before. Just search for
Code: [Select]
<div id="cart-view" class="cart-view"> in your default.php of your cart view and place it above the "getLoginForm

Code: [Select]
<div id="cart-view" class="cart-view">
<div class="vm-cart-header-container">
Here cut the first div and set it here

Code: [Select]
<div id="cart-view" class="cart-view">
<?php
$uri vmURI::getCleanUrl();
$uri str_replace(array('?tmpl=component','&tmpl=component'),'',$uri);
echo shopFunctionsF::getLoginForm ($this->cartFALSE,$uri);

Demo data is not imported in the full package.
Sample data installation setting as visible on attached screenshot (ss.jpg).
After installation and logging in, this screen appears: ss2.jpg
When I click on the left button, I get this: ss3.jpg
And no products are created.
What's the matter?

Kind regards,
Gerald

In Joomla user options turn on  Allow User Registration  - in new Joomla versions it is disabled by default.

Hi,
I have a problem with ajax product reloading in product details page that is not working after upgrading from vm 3.0.17 to 3.0.18.

I tried the patch suggested in this post but it does not work.
I've been searching for the string "product-container" in all VM files hoping to find it and understand how to trigger the reload event but I couldn't find it.

Is there something else I could try?

Thanks,
Bruno

What i don't understand, it's why VM for wordpress?
I understand WM for drupal but not WP.
If someone will a complex shop then he can use Joomla too, If he will a simple shop then he have allready WooCommerce.
if he need a complex shop with a simple design and blog, you have  prestashop.

Have someone already customers that want VM in Wordpress?

I think it's not about if someone have a customers who wants VirtueMart on WordPress. It's more about CMS usage and growing WP market and it's natural evolution where great ecommerce solution will be avilable for other popular CM Systems. Of course we can give a 100's good reasons for why people should use Joomla however the facts are as follows:
https://www.google.com/trends/explore?q=joomla,wordpress
https://www.google.com/trends/explore?q=joomla%20shop,wordpress%20shop
If it's not enough just take a look at http://dev.virtuemart.net/projects/virtuemart/files and compare downloads values, for example:
VirtueMart_1.1.9-COMPLETE_PACKAGE.j15.zip    2011-06-20 15:12    2,284 MB    657043
and
com_virtuemart.3.0.14_extract_first.zip    2016-03-11 15:57    4,212 MB    75402
where in 2011 VM has been downloaded 650.000+ times and in 2016 only 75.000+. We can't explain these differences only by new ecom extensions available for Joomla but also by falling Joomla usage trends.

I know it might be not entirely reliable data but it's clearly visible that WordPress became more popular than Joomla. It seems to be obvious that VirtueMart must to be avilable for WordPress. Aside from obvious benefits I think that moving to WP will allow to grow up VM community, will bring new authorities who may designate new trends in VirtueMart development process and much much more you can only imagine.

So, again it's not about "Have someone already customers that want VM in Wordpress?" it's more about 'We can get more customers by providing VirtueMart for other content management systems like WordPress or Drupal'.

Thanks,
Jason.

Agree Jason,

clients often ask me for WP sites because someone told them it is "better" .. I try to set them right and normally succeed but the pressure is always there

I also had the misfortune recently to work on a WooCommerce site ...  am lost for words.. a cobbled together ext. with huge overhead re queries etc as soon as u get past a few 10's of products.

So offering VM for WP is another possibility to extend VM's popularity ..  although will certainly continue to push Joomla as the solution as it is "easier" to achieve any out of the ordinary requests.

I had a customer that wanted worpress for the blog part, i simply installed wordpress for Joomla and the customer is happy.
I manage some WooCommerce solution too and i can say that the integration in WP have same problem as VM in Joomla, each update need some Template rewrite for the woocommerce part and you have many other problem mixing SSL, because many widgets are badly written. And i think that wordpresss can be nightmare and is hard to optimise becasue most use function that cannot be overiden without hacks.
So i think that using virtuemart can be a nightmare in a nightmare  because conflits, eg currently VM use function as "logInfo" not namespaced and all this shiould be renamed and well structured before trying to do a compatible release.
Another problem(perhaps not for templater) is to rewrite all the addons for Wordpress. If you have only 500 WP sites using WM, i don't think that spending time to write something for WM for WP is viable.

For the problem of number of download, i have a 3 real explain:
1. Many WM user do not want update because each time they spend to many time on update.
2. Most of the extension for VM3 are now paid release and you had great free tools for VM2(and more for vm1).
3. some user dont follow the direction given by the code progress because all "member release" and private features.
So i think you have part of the answer, why only 75402 downloads
I tried myself some of my site with vm3.0.18 but had trouble too and had to revert to old release, because some customer don't want pay 1 day debugin time.

So i think you have part of the answer, why only 75402 downloads

Like you mentioned - it's only a part of the answer and we need to see whole picture. I think the key part are trends. Looking at the stats I attached we can see Joomla going down where WordPress sits quite stable. So, even if this would be a nightmare in a nightmare (it was funny btw ;) +1 for you ;) ) I still think it's worth to move VirtueMart to WordPress to keep this project on the surface. Like I already mentioned we can give 100's reasons for why to use Joomla and the same number why WordPress. We can also give 100's reasons why to use Magento or OpenCart or even shopify instead of VirtueMart. It's all about what people like to use, what they need to use or what they go with when they think about running an online shop on exisiting websites. In some cases it's also a budget issues. One thing is sure now - WP user probably won't use VirtueMart for his shop at the moment because this would mean he would need to install and learn to Joomla. Unless he will really need some functionallity which is not available in other ecommerce solutions he can choose from.

About your points - I agree and disagree to be honest:
1. Yes, they don't but many of them think this way: "why should I fix something what actually works and brings me money". In this point we should mentioned about security issues, important improvements and bug fixes. From my expirience many people install updates only if they really have to or someone let them know "Hey buddy, you are using outdated software. Are you sure it's safe?". And this is visible in forum posts where some users still using VM 1.1 or some very outdated versions of VirtueMart 2.
2. Many extensions (and the same WP plugins) are payable. If someone runs an online shop is aware or should be aware of that NOT ALL is free and to run an online business he need to pay to someone (not only for domain, hosting, nice looking design or SEO).
3. I think this point can be attached to point 1.

Another problem(perhaps not for templater) is to rewrite all the addons for Wordpress. If you have only 500 WP sites using WM, i don't think that spending time to write something for WM for WP is viable.
No one said that "migration" from Joomla to WordPress will be easy but from the other side addons developers will get customers from new quite huge market. I'm sure it will be worth to spend a little more time to adapt ;).

clients often ask me for WP sites because someone told them it is "better" .. I try to set them right and normally succeed but the pressure is always there
And this is another reason of why VM should be available for WordPress ;) WordPress is not better or worse than Joomla. It's simply different. We need to remember that orginally WP has been developed as blogging system and till today nothing changed ;). I guess it was a WP community pressure or evolution or yet something else to make WP to be ... everything (?).

Thanks,
Jason.

I only mention this in the sense that although I do WP sites I much prefer Joomla..  so often I see them start with a "simple WP site" but as they expand or they have new ideas WP struggles to fulfil
