Is Virtuemart 3.2.4 Compatibility with Joomla 3.8.2?
« on: December 06, 2018, 09:31:07 am »
Hello. I've been developing a e-commerce website using a Shape5 site shaper template (template setup with content) but it was based on the older 3.6.2 Joomla. I updated Joomla to 3.6.5 and I think I updated one of the Virtuemart plugins and it was fine.

Then I tried updating Joomla to 3.8.1 and it seems to have gotten rid of Virtuemart in my administration panels and menus which has taken away my ability to manage it. The plugins and component are still there however and it is still functioning on the front end of the website. I looked at the VM website which really lacks in info especially regards to anything past 3.7.x Joomla and their website lacks https certificates currently so I can't even download and reinstall VM. Anyone have experience running VM on 3.8.x Joomla. Problems?

It will run fine .. 

all that has happened is the entries and VM admin module have been lost/unpublished

chk under J admin -> modules -> administration - look for VM - Administrator Module

make sure its published in the menu position

if not try reinstalling the VM AIO package
try reinstalling VM if the menu entries have disappeared for VM admin or search on here for the sql needed to remake them

And to answer the question about VM on J3.8.x, there are no issues, and no issues either with the current Joomla version, 3.9.1`
