I just installed version 1.9.8f and mods_virtuemart_allinone.1.9.8f module, but the cart module refuses to show content, I put a screen to see the problem.

thank you

Hi Tee shot

I do have the same problem. But I am the only one in the team.

Can you give us more about your environment .. may vbe that can help us to solve the problem.

Tee shot

ok I'm not a pro, so here's the environment:

     Server: Localhost via UNIX socket
     Server version: 5.0.92-community
     Protocol version: 10
     User: @ localhost xxxxxxxx
     Character Set for MySQL: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8)

web server

     MySQL client version: 4.1.22
     PHP Extension: mysql Documentation

shared hosting Mavenhosting

Here is the list of components used, may be a compatibility problem?

DJ-Image Slider

Which version of php do you have?

And you are using Joomla 1.7?
Because for me it works for Joomla 1.5, but not for Joomla1.7.

Tee shot

yes, I'm using joomla 1.7.0, I did not test with this version of joomla 1.5.

I have another site on the same hosting or joomla I use 1.5.23 and virtuemart 1.1.9 and I have any problems.

Sorry if my English is not very good, google is my friend;)

missing image / components / com_virtuemart / assets / images / vmgeneral /cart-loading.gif.

It lacks any case, most images are in folder. I've found mostly in older version but not cart-loading.gif.

anyone have a link to a shop that works with joomla 1.7 and virtuemart 1.9.8?


I do not understand well what are the lines :<div class="total" style="float: right;"></div>
<div class="total_products"><img src="components/com_virtuemart/assets/images/vmgeneral/cart-loading.gif"><img src="components/com_virtuemart/assets/images/vmgeneral/cart-loading.gif"></div>
<div class="show_cart"></div>

and why the line


is noscript ?

I installed the version of joomla 1.6.6 1.9.8RC2F and the cart work. I'm looking, I do not. the problem would be in the file vmprices.js or chosen.css. But I'm not pro enough to find, I'm not even sure it comes from these files.
I would like to see a link or cart works with joomla 1.7



Hi Tee Shot

Our problem is to find out why it works for a lot of people, and not for some.

Hi Tee short,

I have write the most code of cart, the missing Gif can't break the module itself.
The <no javascript> is when you deactivate javascript, then the cart can't be update dynamicaly. for this i prefered adding a message , i find this better then a false display of cart.

You can't compare 1.1.9 and virtuemart 2, the code and javascript are totally different.

I had many little problem with Ajax update with joomla 1.7 , because sometime the returned json is not well formated but only with joomla 1.7.

The best where i had the problem on my servers then i can solve it im some minutes, but why now the returned values are not standard ??? Tks to Joomla member if he can always return the logical response  in XHR ;)

Best regards, Patrick

Ok Thanks for the réponse Electrocity.

alatak your version is the version FR?

I just made two installations with the English version and the cart work. I did the same installtion (virtuemart same file, same low sql) and the cart does not work. A problem in the French version? english version french version

[edit]Strangely the English version does not work anymore after installing the French version ??????

before :

[Re Edit :D ] Ok I put the same name for the SQL database, so I handed over the base french version
and it came back. The problem therefore lies in the database between sql French version
and English.



Hi Tee Shot

Patrick found the problem for the module. :)

Tee shot

Ha ok, I did not understand. :P

Why it worked on the English and not French? It will give the solution or I do not understand the message he has?

Sorry for my English, I have difficulty.



Don't worry about your english :)

I had the same probleme as you. Sometimes we found errors only when the web site was in french. It has to do with the way we loaded the language file.
