Fibromyalgia Charity site - VM2
« on: May 22, 2012, 17:05:11 pm »
I started Fibromyalgia Support N. Ireland shortly after my own diagnosis with the condition way back in 1994.  First website was in 1997 but have come a LOOOONNNGGG way since then and now manage a nice Joomla site with a small but super Virtuemart shop for it.  I had to resign as Chair about 10 years ago owing to my own health deteriorating and being unable to really undertake the workload involved any longer (I was running it entirely from home with just a small group of others helping), but continue to work on as webmaster, IT speshitpillt, and intermittent fundraiser.

That is a good simple store. Easy to navigate and a clear layout.

Hi Tikkiro,
I just clicked on your VM2 site and selected the books category. Looks to me like you got your tax setup wrong. There is no VAT on books in the UK. And if you sell something to raise funds for a charity, I'm pretty shure that in most cases a reduced VAT rate of 5 percent (normal rate 20%) or a 0 rate is applicable.

All my support for your website. Fibromyalgia is a condition poorly understood which needs more information about. Good job!  :)
