Virtuemart Product Snapshot - Example Layouts

This content plugin for Joomla 2.5 and Virtuemart 2 allows you to embed Virtuemart product information directly into a Joomla article.

The plugin comes in two forms: a free non-commercial plugin and a 'pro' version with extra layouts, the ability to display additional images for the product, and a more sophisticated add to cart button. Both versions allow you to display a product thumbnail with a link to a lightbox full size image. The pro version supports a choice of lightboxes: the Joomla modal lightbox; slimbox and JCE mediabox. With the pro version you can also specify the image sizes as parameters rather than being limited to the default Virtuemart thumbnail sizes.

The product information is embedded into the article with some very simple embedding code, it can be as simple as the following:-

 {product id=51}

Most options can be set through adding additional parameters to the embedding code. All the output is controlled through templates (which can be overridden in your site template), making it easy to customize the layout as you require with some basic knowledge of html and css.

Default Layout


The default layout, available in both the free and pro versions of the plugin. This optionally shows an image thumbnail, the product name, short and/or long description, a link to the Virtuemart product page, the product price and an add-to-cart button. In the free version there is a simplified layout for the add to cart button. In the pro version you can also customize the image size.
