Do i lose products if i uninstall virtuemart?
« on: March 04, 2014, 19:01:05 pm »
Hi!

I am setting this multilanguage site: http://topwineandfood.com/
I had some troubles setting the Italian language for it (I didn't do it correctly, but by changing components names not by using overwrites - so my virtuemart went crazy) and the only way to make virtuemart working correctly again was to update virtuemart.
It worked.
But now there are some incompatibilities with my template and my cart is not working as it should. More specific, when I add a product directly to cart, a pop-up should appear to notify me that I added a product to the cart; but now it doesn't show up anymore.
As well, the cart in the upper right corner it`s not updated automatically, only if i refresh the page.

And I`m thinking about uninstalling virtuemart and installing again the older version.
So, does anybody know if i lose products if i uninstall virtuemart?

Thank you!
Arthur

You will lose product and store data if you uninstall. The only way to try to roll-back is to ftp all the older version files over the top of the current version. Test on a backup copy of the site, of course. And do not go back further than VM2.0.22c or you will then have issues with site security.

The error given by your add to cart (checked on http://topwineandfood.com/shop/metodo-classico/dolce-di-creme-detail ) is
SCRIPT5009: 'vmCartText' is undefined
File: dolce-di-creme-detail, Line: 68, Column: 8

Which could be a JavaScript, language or template issue.
