VM Product Snapshot Pro
This content plugin for Joomla and Virtuemart allows you to embed Virtuemart product information directly into a Joomla article, the custom HTML module and other extensions that support Joomla content plugins, such as K2.
This is the commercial version of the plugin. It is similar to the free version but contains many additional features: including the ability to display multiple products and a choice of layouts. You can see a summary of the product features for each version here.
This version of the plugin comes with a variety of extra layouts, the ability to display additional images for the product, and a more sophisticated add to cart button. It allows you to display a product thumbnail with a link to a lightbox full size image. This pro version supports a choice of lightboxes: the Joomla modal lightbox; slimbox and JCE mediabox. You can also specify the image sizes as parameters rather than being limited to the default Virtuemart thumbnail sizes.
The pro version allows you to list multiple products, selecting by id, sku, category, manufacturer, or groups such as featured, latest or popular products. It can display custom cart fields, and is compatible with custom plugins such as the stockable variants plugin.
The product information is embedded into the article with some very simple embedding code, it can be as simple as the following:-
The id parameter can be a single value or a list. In addition to selecting products by id, in the pro version it is possible to select products by sku, category or manufacturer, plus groups including featured, top or latest products can be displayed.
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.
Joomla 2.5.x or greater and Virtuemart 2.0.x or greater
Joomla content plugins are supported by the Joomla core content component, also by many other CCKs and articles components, such as K2. If you have any doubts about whether your preferred component will be compatible with the plugin, we suggest that you download the free version of the plugin and check for yourself before buying.
