    Myriad J3.4.4 / Virtuemart 3.08 - Statues Fountains Store

    Posted 4 years 7 months ago
    • Rockettheme Myriad Template
      Virtuemart 3.08 Store (free open source, great once you are farmiliar with the code and what does what)
      Joomla 3.4.4


      As you can see there's been a lot of mod's gone down on this Home and Garden site.. We tried to display a lot of information but without it being too crammed for the user when on a tablet or mobile device.
      Using RT Mosaic on the home page for the product catagories keeps them under control for all devices and using RT showcase & feature, we can bring in multiple pictures of the key main leading products - Concrete Balustrade and Large Water Fountains.

      On the product catagory pages the Roksprocket tabs work out really well for displaying a lot of info for the catagory and getting the right seo but not pushing the products half a mile down the page with tons of text in one block. We played it so there was a short intro, then all the main content is available if you click on the tab 'Information'.
      We followed that idea on in Virtuemart html and css overides, where we show further information, buying options etc in spry tabbed panels. We moved the code in the Virtuemart defaults for the products into the tabs, meaning we could just update from the VM back-end and it would go into the tab panels, nice..
      Other plug-ins include Chronoforms5, CustomFieldsForAll and one for connecting to Barclays.

      Check out the new updated Earthtools Home and Garden Store selling balustrade, garden statues, large fountains and much more http://www.earthtools.co.uk

    • Sorry it's taken me ages to get back to you, I just logged in for another issue on another site..

      Using Virtuemart html overrides. Adding the spry tabs into the VM product pages, then moving the VM php code into the spry panels meant updating in VM back-end would put that information in the tabs I'd added for info, full description and options/custom/ fields and buy in each tab.. Again trying to condense things for a cleaner, better user experience, especially when you get to mobile size..
