Virtuemart Dead or Alive ? Whats the roadmap and future ?
« on: December 17, 2020, 15:50:12 pm »
Hi, so the subject would also be my question.

A few years back, with Joomla 1.5, 1.7, 2.5 etc. I followed the virtuemart path, with a great shopping system and a great support forum.

About 2 years ago, or longer, we had to switch. Template providers, Plugin and Extensions just took out virtuemart support completely, well and we had to follow.

I know all this sounds like a provocation, but I'm just stating the facts.

Would like to know if you guys plan to get back to the top competing with the other popular shopping systems.

You are clearly stating your facts. Others have other facts. The people with other facts stayed, because they didn't face your facts. And if there were some that lost support for something, they found another. The choice to leave needs other motivations.
Nowadays people are migrating their shopify shops to VirtueMart, because they realise that VM is the better solution for their needs, because these fixed shop systems are not as flexible as VirtueMart is. But for some these fixed shops are good. Nice shops out of the box, looking all a bit the same but that's fine for some businesses. So all have their purpose and their right to have a share.

We are using Virtuemart for more than 10 years and it's better than even before with many 3rd party extensions, no way we would change now.

 ;) that's right, I agree with this statement
