Hello anamari,


To change the name virtuemart-store you have to change the menu item alias that points to your virtuemart Front page.


On joomla backend go to menus and pick up the the right menu...

I haven't got a menu item that points me to the "frontpage" og my VirtueMart store, so there is no alias to change. What should i do then, to remove the "virtuemart" part of this URL "/component/virtuemart/cart?Itemid=0"?

Thanks for any help

Yours sincerely
Anders J.

Hi Ihateit,

That menu item is very important as it creates the SEF for all the products ad categories... (and other VM related pages).
