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.
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.
Now 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).
