I want to hide the Tax value on VM. On the checkout page, the name of my tax rule is shown and underneath the value is shown and i dont want it to show. When i hide it from the configuration->Pricing, It disappears from the table but again it shows on the table below after the total is shown with the label: Tax includes: Tax: 2.5% and amount. I want it totally gone.
How can i achieve that.

To funkyfela:

1. First You must learn how function Joomla and MVC and override - find on Joomla doc
2. Copy this file from virtuemart to your template and then edit  - new portal for Joomla!, Virtuemart and other extensions

To pinochico:

It seems you do not understand what i mean? I cant find the folder: cart\default_pricelist.php
at least i can read and if i see the folder i will know that its the folder/file before overriding.
i have searched all over, maybe my template has a different name for it



It is actually You that do not understand the override mechanism in Joomla. Not all files and folders have to be overridden in a custom template.
If the file is not there You will have to create an override for the cart in Your_template. See Joomla documentation if GJC directions are not enough for You to understand. GJC has given a correct file path for You to use.

This reflects current status when viewing old post.


If you don't already have an override for that file then you will find the default (original file) in components/com_virtuemart/views/cart/tmpl/

Download default_pricelist.php and edit it to your requirements. Then create the directory \templates\your_template\html\com_virtuemart\cart\ and upload your edited file. This will then override the default template and will not be overwritten when VirtueMart is upgraded.

Thank you all for your contributions.
@jenkinhill your directive was much easier for me to understand. I have done the override. I guess i will need to study more on the override.

Thanks all
