Module Positions don't work with VirtueMart
« on: October 28, 2009, 03:37:25 am »
For correct functionality of modules appearing on VirtueMart pages you must create a menu link to the VirtueMart component. Without this Joomla has no idea that VirtueMart is being used and can't, for example, change template or assign specific modules on VirtueMart pages.

If you don't want an actual menu link, just create a new menu and publish a link to the VirtueMart component. This will create a new Joomla menu module. Don't publish this module! The link has been published but the menu is not displayed.

REMEMBER - Joomla assigns modules to components, not to component pages. If you assign a module to VirtueMart it will display on all VirtueMart Pages. This is the same for all Joomla components that have multiple pages.
