 Virtuemart 1.0.15 Drop-down Product List SEF Joomla 1.0


Now modified to be SEF (Search engine friendly). I have used this mod_product_list on more than one site and it is very useful indeed providing functionality that is missing from core Virtuemart. However, on the original there were two problems, firstly, the URL's the mod generates are not SEF friendly and are ignored by tools such as Artio SEF. This is the module's fault as the original generates the URL's in a hard-coded fashion rather than using the vm_parser to generate the URLs as a VM component would normally do. Secondly, the hard-coded URL has the item id set to 1 which causes the pathway to be missing the 'home' link. This caused formatting problems on my templates that have a pathway showing. I had the code changed so that this version is now fully SEF compliant and will work with SEF packages that generate human-friendly URLs such Artio JoomSEF. This updated version is now a good module and indispensable on a VM shop.

The module only works in conjunction with Artio's JoomSEF so please don't raise support queries until you have installed Artio JoomSEF.

If you have long product names put it in a wide module position, preferably an inset module above your core content.

See live example here:

It will take the width of your widest product name so please bear in mind that it will not fit the left or right hand columns if your product names are long!

The joomla 1.5 version is here
