Mootools still used?
« on: May 08, 2019, 12:31:10 pm »
Hello,

We are trying to optimize our store, using a popular 3rd party template, and we noticed it relies a lot on mootools + mootools-more libraries.
e.g. I cannot display the Add-to-Cart popup with mootools removed.

I also checked the official VM3 demo store: https://demo.virtuemart.net/dress-shirt-with-tie-detail
and indeed, both mootools libraries are loaded.

Mootools has been deprecated by Joomla for a long time, and it adds a considerable weight to the page size. What gives?



[Joomla 3.9.x/ VM 3.2.15]

the demo is "obsolete" and use old updated beez template from Joomla 2.5.
I dont know why. You have to check why the team dont use default Joomla 3 protostar template or a more modern template to verify the mobile render.
