Availability image/text not showing, need help
« on: August 22, 2013, 13:40:02 pm »
Hello,

I am using VM 2.0.20b on Joomla 2,5 I am trying toi submit my eshop to a search engine but they do not accept the submission because in some products availability is not displayed below add to cart button or anywhere else.  I have done this: Configuration-> Shopfront, at the top right Action when a Product is Out of Stock, select an option to handle stock.

The availability image is displayed only if in stock is set to ZERO in product status

Am I doing something wrong? Any ideas?

EDIT: Also the correct image/text is shown if Booked, ordered products is bigger (>) than in stock number

strange....

Why do you think that this is not correct?

You didn't say which search engine service you are trying to use - I guess something like Google's paid service 'Google Shopping'. Possibly the method to supply your data has to follow a certain xml file structure. So in your case you will probably have to display your availability in text form instead of (unreadable) images and you might have to adjust the availability text in the VirtueMart frontend language file.
