VM-Users/Customers = Joomla-Users/Customers?
« on: January 15, 2012, 20:06:18 PM »
joomla users get extended by the vmuser table.
Additionally to that missing data gets completed:

no shoppergroup assigned, when anonymous jUser =>anonymous, else default shoppergroup.

no perm assigned, =>when admin or superadmin jUser =>admin, else shopper perm

So a joomla user can login,.. is automatically a recognised shopper and just need to add his address.

Some people say, vm is not using the joomla account information. They mix joomla account information with the information of a contact detail (com_contact).
