Yes, this worked great! Thank you!

I certainly wouldn't mind a small logo and perhaps even a link on the outside edge of the template but especially with the "cart" there it made it very confusing.

Thanks!

Will this still work?
How, exactly, do I find this css file?

Thanks!

Code: [Select]
.vmCartModule div a img {
display:none;
}

in your css will do the same

YEEEEHAAA!  Finally!  A simple and quick fix!

For the mostly clueless out there (like me), just do this:

Within your Joomla backend, go to "Extensions" then "Template Manager". Choose your template and click on "Edit".  On your template, click "Edit CSS".  From the list, choose "template.css" and click on "Edit".  Copy that little snippet above and just stick it in at the top of that page.  Save everything.  Now just open up your site and it works!  You might have to reload the browser window (I did).

Thanks SO much for that simple and effective fix!

Sounds like a bad server setup. Try ftp using FileZilla to check file ownerships & permissions. I'd suspect a problem with ownership. If you have access to the server root then CHOWN the files/folders so they are owned by user.

I actually found it advantageous to change the logo image to a more generic one (there is one in the same folder) and to remove the link.  I also pasted the same code a few lines down so that it also displayes if the cart is NOT empty.  I think I pasted the complete modified file in another post a few days ago.

Hi your right, changing the image is a great idea, but changing the link of where it goes to, involves changing the core code.

This means hacking it, which will be over written when 1.1.4 comes out in public release.

You are also correct but it is an easy hack, even for a non programmer like myself.  The better solution would be to eliminate the link altogether in1.1.4. I cannot conceive why anyone would want it. Another solution would be to make it easy to turn this option off.

I personally like the cart image.  A site can be a little oveweleming with content and pictures and I like to make it easy for customers to where their cart is.  The small test used for the "show cart" link does not help.  I like my solution very much and  am thinking of also making the image a link to the cart module so the user can click on either the text OR image to get there.

You are all wrong!!!! You can remove it under your settings...

Go to VirtueMart Admin> then choose "Configuration" > Then "Site" > Then uncheck  the box called "Show footer"... that's it...

davemiami, the component footer logo is not the same as the logo image used in the minicart module, which this thread is about.

Further to my post above, I changed this feature to suit me.  I found a cart image I liked and uploaded it and made it an active link in addition to the "Show Cart" text.  The image shows all the time even when the cart is empty and clicking on it will take you to the shopping cart.  Frankly I think this is how it should work right out of the box, but it was not too hard to change.
