The cart content is stored in the browser as session variables so I guess it would be possible to overwhelm the storage, but the cart info is still there.

I just tried on Amazon and was able to lose the cart content & reinstate it by adding another product....

Thank you for your reply.  Overwhelming the storage would be reasonable explanation if it didn't happen after only one or two pages being browsed.

Still the same problem for me for along time.  Global cache turned on or off it doesn't matter, it keep on caching even when the cache folder is blocked for wrting (CMOD 644), but when global caching is turned of it not caching all the time. but you never know when it is and when not

realy frustrating that there is no good solution for this.

I.m running:

Joomla 1.5.23
VM 1.1.8

Using:
JHC optimize
SH404SF v. 2.2.5.964
Rockettheme Mixxag site templae
Yagendoo VM VAmazing template

Man, what a pain!
All through my test phase, Joomla Server caching was switched on. Being the only person who ever placed test orders from my site, I never saw an issue.
It wasn't until orders significantly dropped, that I realised I had a problem

People complained that they:
* couldn't place an order
* had the wrong item in their cart
* couldn't clear their cart
* couldn't update their cart

I've now switched off all server caching (in both places, Global configuration and Plugins) and am a little hesitant to try out the other caching tools that are mentioned here.

Has anyone had 100% success with *any* caching modules for VM?

Hello,

I have been using VM 1.1.9 with Joomla Cache on for some days now. The system cache plugin is off. I am not using any third party seo components.

I have read in older threads that joomla cache in virtue mart should be off. I think in the latest vm release (1.1.9) this is fixed.

I haven't seen any problems until now, no duplicate products or wrong items in the cart.

What are your suggestions? Has anybody tried with the cache plugging on?

Thanks

What a pain that he VM team does not see this as a really mayor issue.
I'm checking to use other software for my new shop now. What a pain! For 3 years people report issues and still no solution!

Hi,It helped me:

virtuemart>configuration>security

In the security tab of the virtuamart configuration you will see to addresses: "Site URL" and "SECUREURL". If these addresses don't both use "www" then the problem exists. they should both have www.

Well, nothing helped for me unfortunately... Cache on or off makes no difference, Site URL is set to www... etc...

Can there something be set to refresh the entire page every time you browse to a different page? If I refresh the page everything looks fine...

I have turned caching back off, cleared the sit'e cache, and cleared browser cache but the site has continued to have this issue.

I have mod_virtuemart_cart posted on every page in the left hand column. After clicking "continue shopping" and browsing several pages, the modules appears empty and states "Your Cart is currently empty."

Here is the interesting part, once I add another item to the cart my old items appear as well.

Any thoughts?

Hello Cory1970
I had exactly the same issue as you.
I turned off the following plugins:
plg_gkcache
gavickExtCache
cache

In global configuration the cache is on
global conservative
15 minutes


My Problem was solved.

I see there's no solution yet for the problem of the cache turned ON and all images in VM repeating themselves.

I hope someone find a solution for this, Cache off is not an option, people want fast sites!

So every time you publish new products you have to clean the cache in order to be generated again and all pages must be opened once in order to get cached. First time of caching is so slow! Can we avoid this and somehow purge the new updates without need of regenerating cache pages?
Also does JotCache offers any more features than what joomla default cache does?

I have used Jotcache on Joomla 2.5 with VirtueMart 2 and it works OK, even though VM2 is already faster than 1.1.9 I think there is some benefit. This morning I checked JotCache 3.0.2 on Joomla 2.5.7 with VM 2.0.11d.  It does allow you to now exclude some modules from cache, useful for the cart and currency exchange rate display.

I have not tested it with VM1.1/J1.5 as I no longer have any old version sites, but my experience now suggests it could be worth a try.
