  • VM3.2 Cached and Optimized
    • VM3 Extensions
  • VirtueMart Version: VirtueMart 3 on joomla 3
The problem started with a small change to the Joomla updater, which required us to write a system plugin for third-party VirtueMart plugins. But of course a few third-party developers did the same thing (one of them gave us the code instead of providing his own) and so we encountered several plugins trying to load the VirtuemartConfig class before the updater could load the config class from the new installation files. So the updater got the wrong paths. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal as long as the correct SQL files are loaded, because most of the installation functions are based on those of the installation program.

But one of the big design changes in VM 3.4 was to use the Joomla class loader. The old VirtueMartConfig classes didn't register the new classes and all old 'if class not exists' constructions were removed, so some users had missing classes when they updated the core program. We are sorry about that.

We noticed this problem a few months ago and updated the system installer to check if there is an update and set the correct path. But we overlooked the point that third-party system plugins can already be loaded and that our system plugin is usually updated later (most people update the core first, then AIO). So users who updated got the problem that the updater loaded the wrong SQL files. The simple fix was to use the installation files to update again, or to run our tool (usually for developers only) "Install or if necessary update tables". This was the reason why we changed the installation files within 2 days of the release. The new installer now always uses the correct directory and it is no longer dependent on the loaded VirtueMart config class. In addition, the classes are re-registered in the Joomla class loader with the correct path. Third party vendors should update their system plugins by loading the VirtueMartConfig class in the same way as ours.

I did the update today and now when I log in to my Joomla administration site, I get the menus and a blank page.  there is the "Error 1242 subquery returns mor than 1 row" none of the menu options are working and VM is totally missing from all the menus.
I can't work out what to do, the front end of the website is working fine but I can't access anything on the backend including updating customer orders. 

Please help, I think this issue happened when the VM aio was being updated as it was all working well before that.

Please help, running Joomla 3.8.13 PHP 7.0.32 Virtuemart latest version updated today but can't access to tell you what version it is.  :'(

If you cannot modify the config, you should edit the configuration.php file in the Jomla root folder and set public $error_reporting = 'maximum';

Hi Guys.
im using a custombuild component to make the life of a shopowner easier. I have a controller in which i have tasks that all rely on this old
      if (!class_exists ('shopFunctionsF'))
         require(VMPATH_SITE . DS . 'helpers' . DS . 'shopfunctionsf.php');

Apparently DS is no longer defined, so i changed this to DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR
VMPATH_SITE is also not defined, so i cant get classes loaded correctly.

this means that:
$orderModel=VmModel::getModel('orders');
gives me a Fatal error.

Is there a place where i can see how its supposed to be done?
this probably means i need to change a lot of internal plugins to make them work correctly..
(Was working correctly in 3.2.14)

Thanks.
Best regards,
Wel

no, nothing is showing except the normal joomla menu but the menu options are not working at all.  The Virtuemart menu options are missing from the menu, they won't load. 

It is the update that broke it, particularly the aio update, everything was fine until then.

not sure how I can install the previous version without Joomla working. 

The only other option I can think of is to restore from yesterday's back up but I will loose my customer information and the orders that came through today. 

Any help at this stage would be great, please

I do something like this is external comps

      if (!class_exists( 'VmConfig' ))
      require(JPATH_ADMINISTRATOR.DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'components'.DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'com_virtuemart'.DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'helpers'.DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'config.php');
      VmConfig::loadConfig();
}

Max will probably have a fit though..  ;)
