How to hang vm mod_virtuemart_featureprod on a seperate menuitem

How to hang vm mod_virtuemart_featureprod on a seperate menuitem

Hi,

I'm using joomla 1.5.15 with virtuemart 1.1.4.
What i want to make is a special menu item names 'SPECIALS' connected to mod_virtuemart_featureprod.
So when a user clicks on this menu item the use is show the featured products on the middle div (this div is the main div where also the articles are shown. The menu is shown in the div 'MENU' called.
On the forum of virtuemart a user says it is possible with metamod.
Hopefully someone can help me into the good direction (even if it necesary to by the PRO version.

Thanks.

Hi Klaasjan,

I don't think you need MetaMod for this.
Here's what I would do:

- make an Article in Joomla. give it the text: {loadposition featureprod}
- make a menu item that points to this article (type: Content Article link).
- make a new mod_virtuemart_featureprod module, and assign it to the new page (menu item) that you created. For the Module Position, type in "featureprod".

Now when you click on the menu item you are taken to the article. Inside the article you should see the featured product module.

If you just see the text  {loadposition featureprod} then you need to enable the "Content - Load Module" plugin in Joomla.

Hope that helps,
Stephen

Re: How to hang vm mod_virtuemart_featureprod on a seperate menuitem

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your reply.
I'm new with Joomla. So if i understand you correctly :
1. A new article (standard type) with only the text {loadposition featureprod}
2. A menuitem pointed to this article, I understand.
3. I have already installed mod_virtuemart_featureprod, can i use this one (i think so, but ask a question could not hurt :-)) But how do you connect it to a menu item (I think it is very simple, but i miss a point I think).
4. Change the module position, i did not know that i can manually change the values?

I new that the sollution was this simple.

Also I want to point out that the MetaMod extension is beautifull extension. I keep it in mind, I know i need to use it in the near feature.

greetings,
Klaasjan

3 - to connect it to a menu item, look for the "Menu Items:" option when you are editing the module. Set it to "Select Menu Item(s) from the List", then select the menu items from the list provided.

4 - just click on the name of the position in the "position" box, and you can edit it directly.

Cheers,
Stephen
