VirtueMart 1.2 released, enable old VM shopping-cart into Joomla 2.5

Tagged under:
[SmartAddons.com] As we follow up the newest updates from the Projects relating to our products like Joomla, Magento, K2, VirtueMart, Zoo... we realized that many customers are still using some old versions and still not-update-able to the latest version of those Projects.
One of those products is VirtueMart (VM), the most important component in the world of "making benefit".


There are many reasons for that trend, such as: their old VM have been heavily modded, so they cannot easily turn to the newest version without changing many codes in the core. Remember that the new VirtueMart 2.0 is a new code base with some brand-new functions. Updating to this version will make you several benefit, but the most important is the compatibility with Joomla! 2.5!

With the guys using old version of VM (<2.0), there are two options for them. One option certainly is updating to the latest version, we mean the VM 2.0.x, now 2.0.6, so they can inherit all the new features from it, including compatibility with Joomla! 2.5. But this option is not good if it requires rebuilding modules inside?

VM 1.2 release

Thank to some geeks from VM team, now there is very NEW version of VM that not only continues the old code base of VM 1.x but also is compatible with Joomla! 2. 5. The VirtueMart 1.2 is actually 99% identical to the present VirtueMart 1.1.9 edition, not 100% simply because it is created for Joomla 2.5. If you have websites along with plenty of categories, products, product attributes, product types, customer orders, custom themes etc, and don't want to update to the VM 1.2 version, then this is right for you.

But most importantly, this is an unofficial edition! That means it's not supported by VirtueMart team. For those didn’t wish to update to VirtueMart 2.x, this VirtueMart 1.2 version really is an angel venture, good but with risk.

To our customers

Before you decide to start the actual updating procedure to this VM edition, make certain all of your 3rd party add-ons: modules, plugins, custom codes (hacks) are compatible with Joomla 2.5, NO ONE responsible for any 3rd party add-ons of yours. And remember that this is not official edition from VM team, use it with your own risk!
