[solved] State of the art fully responsive VirtueMart template
« on: September 24, 2016, 06:42:59 am »
Hi all!

Can anyone recommend a VirtueMart template, that is ...
... state of the art in technology and design?
... fully responsive (also cart, order list and my-account)?
... well maintained and up-to-date with current VirtueMart and Joomla versions?
... multilingual?
... multi-vendor ready?
... markup valid?
... maybe even accessible?

Thank you very much in advance for your hints!

Kind regards,
Gerald

I agree with GJ. I'd suggest https://www.olympianthemes.com/virtuemart-templates/hera-virtuemart-template.html  - not only is it a good template, but the developer is also a member of the VM dev team so is able to keep the template compatible with VM updates.

Hi!

Thank you very much for your input!

I already had a closer look at Spyros' templates for the same reasons you mentioned - and I'm really fond of both of his templates!

I am just wondering, how up-to-date they are:
- VirtueMart 3.0.16 is the version of April this year - current version is 3.0.18 (well, it's been released just some days ago...).
- Joomla 3.5 was released in March this year and replaced by 3.6 in July - the current version is 3.6.2 (from August).
Please understand me right - I am not pedantic, I just need to find out, which template provider can provide with a well maintained, up-to-date product.

The other topic is validity:
I know, it is difficult to provide totally error free templates.
i.e. Hera 3 has 57 errors and Horme 3 has 20 errors (according to W3C validator), without regard to warnings.
And this already without me adapting anything  :P ;D

Also very important to me is multi-language and multi-vendor support - I cannot find anything about that in the product descriptions...

Why I am so accurate?
Because I've been struggling with some VM template provider already for 2 years - all the points mentioned in my initial post either led to difficulties or were even not provided in the VM template I bought from him.
It is hard to get support by him.
And many updates implicated troubles.

I really need a high quality template and a reliable provider.
If that is olympiathemes.com, I will be really happy!
If that is someone else, I will be happy, too.  :)

So I invite everyone to lead me on to the right track!

Kind regards,
Gerald
