Thanks for posting this!

I get a bunch of undefined variables: selectspecial, font_weight, sep_der, and more. Does this assume register globals is ON (not recommended for Joomla).

So line 54 should read ?
Code: [Select]
$query = "SELECT $sqlselect FROM #__vm_product WHERE  product_publish = 'Y' LIMIT 0,".$limit." ";] or  ?

That is already 1 error, now the other ones.

I took screenshot of your webpage, i will publish later this week a new version of this module with less errors.

Thank you for such a great addon. Great work!

I wish to know, does it work with coustom atributes?
and
I wish to make a feature request:
-every category must have specific tags, that I can set in the back-end;
-when browsing a category, only those tags assigned to it will be desplayed, and when browsing another category, you can see it's tags as well;
-a user can click on multiple tags, and the module remembers those tags, and filters products based on the tag selection made by user, and this will need a reset button for tags as well.

Please advise and thanks for any reply

Hello all,

the feature request from korb would be a nice addition to this modul. For a shop with many products it would be a great solution to filter out and get the right choice for the customer.

Thank you very much for this cloud modul.

Best regards, Urs

Not yet....

-every category must have specific tags, that I can set in the back-end;
Not possible, because i don't want to hack VM.
Quote
when browsing a category, only those tags assigned to it will be desplayed, and when browsing another category, you can see it's tags as well;
Show only tags from the actual Category the customer browses in will be implented soon ... ( based on automatically select manufacturers in the mod_virtuemart_manufacturers )
Quote
-a user can click on multiple tags, and the module remembers those tags, and filters products based on the tag selection made by user, and this will need a reset button for tags as well.
it's possible to send 2 keywords to the shop.browse page ($keyword1 & keyword2 , see also advanced search in VM ) but don't know (yet) how to create a function that remembers the first keyword....

Hello World, today it was a good day to extend the VM_Cloud more :)

New in 1.2
  • New ordering : Random (shuffle)
  • Show only tags from special and / or discounted products
  • Show only tags from specific category(s)
  • Make more use of the VM search options ( $search_limiter in shop_browse_queries)
  • Choose to use the custom CSS or not (or add your own Class name to the DIV)
  • Create tags from child products name
  • option to show only tags from the actual category the user browses in
  • Don't create tags of products that are not in stock (yes/no)

Ok, looks very nice BUT one BIG BUG, and don't know yet a solution:
When SEF is enabled and there is only 1 match (you go straight to detail page) it doesn't include the index.php so you get an error... any ideas ?
