How to Create a Rule Where NO Template is Called.

How to Create a Rule Where NO Template is Called.

I'm using VirtueMart. I have developed a report which itemizes the tax on orders and shipping. Ideally I would like to add it to the Reports menu.

If that is not possible simply giving it a hyper-link from within the VM sales Report page would do. When I attempt to add the hyper link approach, VM ignores the link destination and just takes me to my home page and template.

I have looked at MTP and it appears to require that  you specify a template. What I want is that VM does nothing and simply allows the page to appear as is.

Any suggestions how I just get my hyper-link to work properly ?   

thanks Vincej

Re: How to Create a Rule Where NO Template is Called.

Hi Vince,

I think I need some more information here.

Have I got this right:
- this is for sales reports, so it's just for an admin user, right?
- it's in the front-end
- you're creating some hyperlinks but they are not going to where you thought they should

Questions:
- what do templates have to do with this? Is it that you want to use a different template for your new tax page?
- can you give some real URLs so I can see what's going on?
- what's the URL that you *thought* you are sending people to for the new tax page?
- does this URL show up exactly, on the page where it appears? Or is it getting mangled somehow?
- I don't really understand this sentence: "I have looked at MTP and it appears to require that  you specify a template. What I want is that VM does nothing and simply allows the page to appear as is.". Can you elaborate?

Best regards,
Stephen
