VirtueMart on Iphone, IPad and Android?
« on: November 23, 2011, 23:14:14 pm »
How to show a Virtuemart shop on the mobile devices?

Anybody with hints or experience...

I don’t really care about managing the shop but have some control on how the shop is presented on those devices and what mobile visitors can do.

Any plugins?

What about IVM —> http://www.ivmstore.com/

On my Android phone and Eee Pad I use normal web browsers and have no problems with my VirtueMart sites, both back and front-end, I can select products, complete purchases etc. Display is really down to the Joomla template used and the identification string sent by the mobile device. I have my browsers set to use desktop strings.

There are apps available, though, for those require them for store management, including one for VM2.

Please mention your VirtueMart, Joomla and PHP versions when asking a question in this forum

IMPORTANT:  VirtueMart versions before 2.6.10 are insecure. Updating is strongly advised.


Currently using VM3.0 on Joomla 2.5.27 PHP 5.4.21

Currently testing VM3.0 on J3.3.6

Thanks jenkinhill
I’m trying to grasp how exactly the web world show in those device and how, as webmaster, I can build rich adapted content from/with Joomla.

So far, without a really clear idea of the process, I can see :

1—The native ability to display web site, as is, without necessary a special “mobile template”
2— Ability to switch on a Joomla template adapted to “mobile”
3—importing Joomla content inside mobile apps — That mobile Apps replacing the joomla framework.

As a webmaster, I’m trying to choose how I can add to my normal joomla sites a pro mobile experience. I like to keep the CMS idea where the mobile Site will have most of is content control by the Joomla administration as normal content/module/component.

I’m not sure where to go from there,
