I couldn't agree more, also try the web developer toolbar too.

But I do wish you'd stop calling me Mike!!  :o

The name is Mark and it's clear in my sig!  ;)

oops... guess I was reading too many different posts :-)  I'll check out that toolbar too. Thanks again!

Life is too short to do things by halves...

Mark, thanks so much for ALL of your work! Customizing themes is the most time-consuming part of installing VM, for me and this really helps clarify things.

I find I'm installing a lot of Virtuemart systems lately, so I'm drafting a base theme that strips all inline styles and break tags from the default theme templates, replacing them with classes and/or ids  that can be better controlled from the stylesheet. I think that's going to cut down on a lot of style issues, for me, anyway.

Hi

Very nice guide! Short and sweet and to the point! One thing I am missing, as in all documentation I have found so far on VM, is something regarding fonts. I am not a very professional programmer, but I have been around since we made webpages in HTML on Notepad, and fonts have always been a pain in the ... to handle. Now, with WYSIWIG formatting it is pretty nice. On VM, however, the formatting you can do in the WYSIWIG editor is not that much. So to get the formatting correct, and in tune with the template you are using on Joomla, there is evidently some hacking needed. My guess is that this is pretty easy, but the file structure and the relationship between the different CSS and PHP files in Joomla and VM makes it complex to understand when you come in from the outside.

If you could add just a short paragraph about this in the guide, it would be sweet! After searching the forum for several days, I see that a lot of newbies and a few veterans run into trouble when it comes to formatting fonts, and many of these questions remain unanswered in the forum.

Well I've just done a bit of an update which should give a better idea of the overall look of the pdf.

Comments would be appreciated as to layout, content etc. 

Hi Mark

It's great that you're doing this, but I'm still having trouble finding the file I need to change. All I want to do is change the text displayed on the "Thank you" page that is displayed after a purchase is made. At the moment it says "thank you for your Paypal payment" even though I have a Moneybookers option installed as well.

Please could you direct me to where this text can be found so that I can change it to something that would apply to either payment option?

I think this guide is great! Since you are so familiar with VM and its templating system could you answer something for me?

Why aren't all of the same fields available for all of the templates? ???

I have experience with php and usually can sort out files in order to get the display the way I want, but for others it is so crazy that all the available variables are different.

The template system should have a clear standard set of field variables that can be applied to any template. ;) Is there any plans for future development of this feature in VM?
