Your site works just fine on the Beez template.... apart from the bad display.

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



I use IE8 and it doesn't work or am I blind, or is it just my laptop with IE8? I also tested on a different laptop with IE9, also doesn't work

Please advise in how to debug.

the image carousel causes problems

YOUR image carousel has problems.

add to cart works for me in IE EXCEPT the ajax part does not work. I have to refresh page.

also, dont use google external js
<script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>


I'm having massive dramas with this as well (see website where if I switch off the 'Using the Virtuemart jQuery' the cart functionality works but adds nothing into the cart!? Any ideas out there?


Thank fek got this to work! Go into configuration.php file and change the entry:

public $dbtype = 'mysqli'
public $dbtype = 'mysql'

Would be good to know why this worked though, any explanations out there?


yes, dont use mysqli with j1.7 or better said php5.3 and j1.7, because php5.3 is using with mysql already mysqli by default... or other way round,. .mysql does not exist anylonger...

yehh confusing, but that is the reason behind it.

Hi All,
as a VirtueMart 2 newb I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who contributes to these threads.

My problem 'was' the same as everyone here, Joomla! 2.5.6 VM 2.0.8, and Add To Cart was playing up, no Popup modal, etc.

Simple search through this forum taught me to look at the HTML code and see what versions of JavaScript and JQuery were being loaded.
My conflict was BT Login module, and when I set it to 'Auto' determine load it resolved all my problems.

Kind Regards,
