Hi to all  ,  :)

considered the big quantity of troubles and websites death  :'( :'( :'(  ,
based on joomla+virtuemart (..and other cms too…) ,

because no solution able to fully recover without many troubles a website from the old cms version to the new one ,

despite various migration good tools available also for free , 

which unfortunately very often does not fix all properly , with consequent necessity of an expensive  :'(  :'( :'(  expert web designer involvement ,
and lot of dedicated threads many of which (too many..) unfortunately unresolved  :'( :'( :'(

it is really not possible a relatively simple "option" inside VirtueMart or an equal free  specific tool 
for export in a VirtuMart new version compatible :
-the full products section (images included) , categories , daughter categories , product descriptions , price , etc…

that can be imported to the new version of the cms without "kill"  :'( :'( :'(   the website ?        (and "owner" too ..  :'(  )

Ok, it is also true that many issues are also caused by the not availability or not compatibility
of the same template for new version of the cms ,(..other "shame"… ) ,

and more issues are generated by joomla new version not 100% compatible ,
almost always (but not always  :'( ) subsequently fixed ,

And about :
why not a Joomlaless independent Virtuemart proper essential simple platform free home page , 
with follow layout :
1- a display frame in the center , for new products or special offers-sales ,
2- a section with an horizontal products rotating slide , under the top Store logo frame  ,
or a vertical slide opposite to the vertical products browse column,
and a bottom side for fast links , or website map ,

(obviously shop Logo top frame with : Home , Contacts email-skype-whatsup-facebook-twitter... , bread combs, bar included)

?  ?  ?

As last :
After checked the latest versions of VirtueMart , i noted that it include very extended options for large e-commerce web stores
where so expert web designers work on it all the day ,

things that a single person small shop cannot do for sure !!! (most part of online web shops)
that also do not have finance possibility to pay a wed designer engineer .

Why not a "Lite"   "simplified" version of VirtueMart more easy to maintain , overall for single person webshop,
and most important easy to upgrade by not so expert web design engineers,
with a webshop "simplified" home page easy to setup , as above described  ,
and as well with some (3-4) decent specific webshop template a bit graphic easy customizable like : txt colors , zone-frame edges colors , zone-frame background colors ,
fully compatible with new versions of Virtuemart that include the same "core" templates , tested ,
custom "colors" settings apart , re-customizable by webshop owner with copy paste of styles code or better more only replace the colors style sheet,

able to run without Joomla ? ? ?
(for reduce the number of issues , webshops deaths  :'( :'( :'( , owner death included, …. no moneys no life !!! unfortunately  )

Thanks all in advance for post about !

If you really need a light shop system, you should use amazon or ebay for eg.
This is very stupid to use a CMS+a component if you have only 3 or 4 products.
If you need to follow your compagny design, the you need to redesign any existing system(virtuemart or other e-shops)
My advise for your cases(no money, no design) is to forget to do a shop and use ready to use shop with all limit you have.
If you want to do money, you have to invest in the project(time,money design) or have a unique exclusive idea.

See my shop http://shop.st42.fr/en/, its very light, no need to modify something only specific modules and some overides.
If you want a slideshow, you have many modules to do this.

thanks for post ,

checked your website (sales shop)

and it is good for the job you do ,
also quite simple too…
but why no popup menus ?
(and just as well it is not visible by safari 6)

so:
for a webshop success (small or large )
is essential that the software "tool" reply much as possible to the sales / marketing techniques needs

...not simple as saying it….
because almost always the software programmer it is not a marketing / sales techniques expert

but about ,
ebay is one of the main examples (and copied ), and also amazon … , of a good interaction of the 2 "world" involved
because 2 of the most updated "dynamic" sales techniques web "platforms" ,

for sales market customers ,
the price is the first essential thing (reason why the success of ebay, amazon, and similars )
reason why  on the home page of a webshop
is very important have that "Main Display " multislot  products cells  with new products + special sales-offers (end of line , etc..)
and the "Rotating Slide" under the "Main Display" for other products , like related products , "you may need also" , "buy this and you receive this gift" , special offers , and related ..

better showed on the above V3 attachment

Here a link about another shop with a "dynamic" sales optimized template layout as described above
don't consider the number of languages, currencies , available , and good products sizes option list,
just focused on the layout of  pages and option fields)
https://www.sportsdirect.com/SearchResults?DescriptionFilter=Gel%20Flux%20&promo_name=fos-gelflux-r1

really impossible to do ?
("if - > then" option)
