Hello, all,

I have developed a component to act within the shoppers area of the Virtuemart administration application. It is basically one controller and one view, with its corresponding template.

My question is: how can I create a package and the manifest file to be able to install these files under "administrator/components/com_virtuemart/controller" and "administrator/components/com_virtuemart/views", please? Is it even possible?

Never tried this particually - but maybe a simple plugin install that runs an install.php to place your files under the com_virtuemart?

Marciopati, you shoult not do that. You can either create a plugin to add custom views, or create a component. There is no need todo it the dirty way and copy it into. Use the trigger "onVmAdminController"
