Downloads for Sale for VirtueMart

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Plugin development ceased, all plugins made available freely (GPL)

With great sadness we have to announce that we are ceasing development of all our VirtueMart, WooCommerce and Joomla plugins. Effective immediately, all our plugins -- even those that were paid downloads -- are made available for free from our homepage (GPL license still applies), but we cannot and will not provide any support anymore.

It has been a great pleasure to be part of the thriving development communities of VirtueMart as well as WooCommerce. However, during the last year it became painstakingly clear that in addition to a full-time job, a young family and several other time-consuming hobbies at professional level (like being a professional singer) the plugin development and the support that it requires is not sustainable and is taking its toll. It has been an honor, but it is now time to say good bye!

Das Plugin funktioniert soweit super, auch die Mail die an den Kunden geht ist okay, nur in den Rechnungen per pdf gibt es einen Bug, da wird die Plugininfo vom Pluginlink überschrieben.
Das sieht mehr als merkwürdig aus, anbei ein Bild.

Was kann ich da machen?
Danke im voraus.

LG Marinhio

Danke für den Hinweis. Ich benutze überall ein custom template, wo der Fehler nicht auftritt. Muss ich mir näher ansehen, wo das Problem in default Template ist...
Viele Grüße,

Dear Marinhio,

What you observe is actually a problem with how VirtueMart's default template handles custom field output. The same overprinting will also happen e.g. with a custom field from the textinput plugin. Basically, VirtueMart does not add a line break before the output of the custom fields. I don't see any way to work around this in my plugin, because adding the line break there will add an extra empty line when you have two downloads attached to a product...

I'm in contact with the VM core developers, maybe they find a proper solution.
For now, all you can do is change the VirtueMart file
components/com_virtuemart/views/invoice/tmpl/invoice_items.php (line 68):
echo $product_attribute;
echo '<br/>'.$product_attribute;

If you want to preserve that change across VM updates, copy the file components/com_virtuemart/views/invoice/tmpl/invoice_items.php to the directory templates/YOURTEMPLATENAME/html/com_virtuemart/invoice/ and edit it there. Joomla (and thus VirtueMart) will use a file in that location first before it looks for the default VM files. That's called "template override" in Joomla. If you update VM, that file in the template directory will not be touched, so you changes will be preserved across VM updates.

Best regards,

Update: This problem will be properly fixed in the next VirtueMart version (2.0.24a or so).
