VM Mod Controller not showing on VM pages 6 months 22 hours ago #843

I am new to the VM Mod Controller - and believe I have followed instructions correctly, yet fail to achieve the desired outcome.

(1) Without VmModControl - my module (an ajax drop cart) will display on the default VM category view & initial instance of the product list - but not when I go to product detail. It is lost on product list page after I add to cart & `continue'.

The forum suggests that one of my issues might be beyond this product? Where I am attempting to have a cart module appear on all Virtuemart pages including the product detial page. I was under the impression that this module allowed location of modules on all VM pages including product detail page?

There are the only two pages I need these modules to load on.

(2) My second module that will not work is located in the breadcrumbs position. It is a login/out button that disappears when entering VM pages. Under normal Joomla control it also will only display on the category & product list pages (not on product detail) - becoming unavailable after adding to cart/continue. This I would also like to display on product list and product detail pages

I have attached a sequence of screen shots to dipslay the normal behaviour of my page.

Using Joomla 2.5 / VM 2

Looking forward to any advice you can offer.

Unfortunately the screen shots don't seem to be attached, so this does make it more difficult to answer your question. However I took a look at your site, I think that the answer depends on why these two modules disappear when the product details page is entered.

Are these definitely two normal Joomla modules, ie do they appear as modules in the Joomla module manager, assigned to module positions? If so it ought to be possible to use the VM Modcontroller to do what you want.

Or are these actually part of the Virtuemart template? If so to make them appear on the product details page you will need to copy the code from that category template that generates these two modules to the product details page. That is not something you could control through the VM Modcontroller.

Or there may be something in the code of the modules themselves that makes them only appear on particular pages, it is really tracking down the source of the problem that will solve it.
