New Year, New eCommerce Bundle

Posted in Latest News

joomla_logo_160x44.pngNow that we all have welcomed the new year, we from the VirtueMart Project can also thank all of *you* who have helped out or donated to VirtueMart. 2009 will be a great year for VirtueMart, that's for sure.

 Joomla! 1.5.9 has been released today and you're advised to upgrade, because it fixes a security issue. That's why we have also updated our VirtueMart eCommerce Bundle to Joomla! 1.5.9 today. You can download the 9.5 MB package from our Developer Portal.

Also an important maintenance release - VirtueMart 1.1.3 - is currently being prepared for release (next week), so stay tuned.

Development + Extensions Site - Server Maintenance

Posted in Latest News

Yesterday I was informed by our Server Hosting Company that one of our Servers must go offline for 5 hours from 11 p.m. (Thursday December, 4) - 4 a.m. (Friday December, 5). They are renewing and reorganizing the Central Power Connection for their Server Center.

This means that for at least 5 hours the Extensions Site, the Developer Portal and JAdCenter are not available. Most of our users worldwide will hopefully not even notice the short outage.

VM Affiliate 4.0 - Affiliate solution for Joomla! & VirtueMart

Posted in Latest News

I recently wrote about Jafilia, an open source affiliate solution for VirtueMart + Joomla!.

VM Affiliate Logo I think it's more than fair to also mention one commercial affiliate solution, which supports VirtueMart+Joomla!: VM Affiliate . It's is a complete affiliate solution designed specifically for VirtueMart and Joomla! It is J!1.5 native, and VM 1.1 compatible, yet supports any older version.

It is completely built upon the VM and Joomla! framework, easy installation via a Joomla!-like installer.

It's nicely integrated into the site's frontend, and also uses VirtueMart's administration style in the backend.

Due to its integration in VirtueMart, many tasks that are done manually in ordinary affiliate software, become automatic in VMA, such as commission approval/removal and so on.

VM Affiliate is easy to use, but yet very powerful - making affiliate marketing a much more simple job for any VM shop owner.

You should give VM Affiliate a try.

VirtueMart eCommerce Bundle now with Joomla! 1.5.8

Posted in Latest News

Joomla! LogoNow that Joomla! 1.5.8 has been released, I have updated our VirtueMart eCommerce Bundle to this new version. Not only this, but as announced earlier, this new Bundle includes new Sample Products and a new default Template (JoomlArt Larix, specialized for VirtueMart - including a custom VirtueMart Theme).

Another useful component will also be included for the the first time with the new Bundle: CustomQuickIcons. It replaces the default Control Panel with custom Links (one to your VirtueMart installation, of course).
