Account Maintenance
« on: October 02, 2009, 17:06:49 pm »
I'm having a problem with my 'Account Maintenance' link not showing up for Registered users. Seems like it only shows up if I login with my Admin account. Has anyone seen this problem before? Thank you for any input.
Joomla - 1.5.6
VirtueMart - 1.1.3

It turned out to be quite easy. My problem was that regular users couldn't access account maintenance while admins can.

After taking a look at the user list in virtuemart, I figured it out. Only users with a minimum access level of "shopper" can access account maintenance. On the other hand, users who are only registered can't.

In order to convert a registered user to a shopper, you'll have to enter the user's shopping details through virtuemart, or register through virtuemart's login form instead of joomla's.

Hope this helps.
