I seem to have a kinda tricky problem since the whole google-world doesn't know about this. I really really hope, someone here might have stumbled upon the same thing, because it's driving me totally insane.
So, our customer wants his shop to accept guest buyers as well, so we activated "optional account creation". That means, the shop visitor can choose wether to create an account or to buy as a guest, right? Thing is: with "optional account creation" activated, no one gets through the registration form without entering a username and password combo. VirtueMart says something like "check if the form is filled out completely and correctly" (I don't know the exact error msg, since the shop is in german, sorry!) even if everything is filled in.
What's happening there? Is VirtueMart mistakenly missing the user/pw-combo? Or is there more to set up than just activating "optional account creation"?
Thank you for any help!
PS: Oh, and I'm using VM 1.1.8 and Joomla 1.5.23 (yeah I know, newer would be better, but, alas, the customer's server is running PHP4)
PPS: Please excuse my so-so english, I unfortunately have not been to an anglophone country for AGES!
