No difference when changing category browse page
« on: March 17, 2008, 19:03:32 pm »
I am running Virtuemart 1.1RC2 on Joomla 1.5.1

When trying to modify the category browse page or the product flypage in a category, there are no
visible difference in the display of the page.  Changing the number of products/row does work, however.

What am I doing wrong?  How can I get the different browse templates to work?

thanks!

Check to see if you have some sort of cache enabled. Just my 2cents

I don't think this is a caching issue.  Caching is not turned on in Joomla and the page still does not change when trying to view in a different browser.

Solution is already posted on Vitumart forum. But needs to be extended. This is what I fixed and it worked for me.
here is the fix:
In all these lines change flypage to CAPS: FLYPAGE
Code: [Select]
administrator\components\com_virtuemart\html\shop.ask.php (24): $flypage = vmGet($_REQUEST, "flypage", '' );
administrator\components\com_virtuemart\html\shop.basket_short.php (30): $flypage = vmGet($_REQUEST, "flypage", null);
administrator\components\com_virtuemart\html\shop.pdf_output.php (20): $flypage = vmGet( $_REQUEST, 'flypage');
administrator\components\com_virtuemart\html\shop.product_details.php (115): $flypage = vmGet($_REQUEST, "flypage" );
administrator\components\com_virtuemart\html\shop.product_details.php (422): $tpl->set( 'flypage', $flypage );

the idea for solution was taken from this post:

My problem was same, every time I changed category browse page, there was no difference. So I tried to change PRODUCT LIST STYLE located in Configuration -> Site(tab) -> Layout(group) -> and click on Configuration under Select the theme for your shop.  After changing Product List Style from Flat Product List to Product list(no table, div-base) I was able again to change category browse pages. Hope this helps.

I am working on my first VM install.  It was going fine until I ran into this issue.  Some categories displayed as intended and some not.  Driving me nuts!
Then I found this post. Wahoo! 
THANKS FOR THE POST!

Hi,

I have followed these instructions which works great, so long as I follow a category to display the product, but if I simply click on a product from that featured on my homepage it still uses the default flypage.

The cache is off and I have my admin, configuration, site, FLYPAGE and Category Template all set to the new one as well as all the categories set to Browse Page and Flypage matching?

URL not working:
Code: [Select]
http://10.0.1.40/joomla/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=21&Itemid=53
URL working on exactly the same page but directed via the categories
Code: [Select]
http://10.0.1.40/joomla/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=yagendoo_VaMazing_2.tpl&product_id=21&category_id=10&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53
Help in advance much appreciated.
