Can Chameleon help me + how?

Can Chameleon help me + how?

I use virtuemart 2.6.6 on Joomla 2.5.28. I use VM as a store but want to now add a catalogue section (a special category with several subcategories) with redesigned category list pages and product detail pages. How can chameleon help me here? (What do I need to prepare and how do I implement it with Chameleon?)

Re: Can Chameleon help me + how?

Hi tap21,

I am assuming that the redesigned pages can be achieved through a different template or "style" of template. If it relies on different "settings" inside VM then that's something that Chameleon can't achieve so easily.

So at a basic level you could:

1 - create a new style on your current template, or a new template, that has the desired design elements
2 - in Chameleon, create a new rule. Enter the category ID of the special category into the "Ancestor Category id(s)" box, then in the Succeed Action select the new template/style that you created. This will cause that template/style to be used for your particular VM category and all its subcategories, and all the products in those categories.

Cheers,
Stephen
