Cart is not displayed on every page so difficult to check...

Have you tried using JotCache? I remember that some users found it to be a good plugin http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/site-management/cache/13155

I never use Cache with VM, since it kills the store for sure.

I added that product, but need the cart module displayed on the page to see how the xart works when I go back to homepage etc.

Although I have not seen this issue, I wonder if ensuring that the cart is only displayed on the VM pages is a sort of answer. I have seen something about that on the metamod forum. The Joomla plugin code fix by benm earlier in this thread has obviously helped some users.

If my servers weren't so fast I may have come across a page caching issue myself.

Sorry dint get you.
Do you mean, we need to have the VM Cart module active on all pages to ignore this issue ?

Yes, curious also. So far System Cache plugin does not work correctly with Joomla 1.5.21-1.5.22 and Virtuemart versions 1.1.5-1.1.7a that I've tried. benm's hack basically disables the cache when items are in the cart; slowing down the main thing we want the user to breeze through; the $$$ in the cart.

I'd sure like to get this fixed? What's the procedure for opening a bug report here?

OFFTOPIC - On a separate note, been reading up on Community Builder or Jomsocial and Virtuemart. wow - my next pet peeve . . . multiple user tables/schemas with both installed ;) Still using Joomla (and Drupal). They've both got some delicious features (and some warts).

Bugs can be discussed on http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?board=61.0

I agree with you about userfield complications caused by CB and Jomsocial. VirtueMart works in conjuction with Joomla's user table, but CB uses its own schema. I don't think it was considered when development of these components started that some people would want to install and use more than one component at the same time.

VM 1.1.8
Joomla 1.5.18

I am still running into the exact same problem even after making the change to the cache.php.  This happens with global caching on or off.  This happens with the cache plugin on or off.

Here is what happens.
Put item in cart.
Click "continue shopping" - the item is still in the cart at this point
Click on home page - sometimes the item stays in the cart.
Visit several other pages - after one or two pages the item is gone.

Any ideas?

I subscribed to this thread hoping that the VM peepz would eventually see this is a pretty big issue. Yep - this is almost a deal killer for Virtuemart. Many Joomla sites are slow with the cache turned off. The last ecommerce site I built I used a different cart because of this flaw. I at least got it to VirtueMart's cart to work by turning off the cache altogether.

I have been searching around and continue to find the issue popping in various forums on the web, but no one seems to have a real answer.

Here is another one http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=52825.0

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?
