Shop configuration


Displays configurable options which take effect on all vendors.
This is hard test case, because we must test the effect of every option.

Tab Shop

Shop is offline => Should display the shop offline layout, regardless which view is choosen. Test for all frontend views
Offline Message => Message to display, when "shop is offline" is checked. Test if html-tags work in the message
Use only as catalogue => Show prices, but disable "add to cart", cart and checkout. Search for links pointing to them (shouldnt displayed), test if you can use the cart/addtocart and so on, with direct links.
Show Products that are out of Stock => Show products with stock in inventory = 0. Display "ask a question" or "add to watinglist" or simular. Test if you can set yourself on the waiting list.
Select a currency converter module => Select a module for the dynamic currency exchange rate.
Order-mail format => Send mails in html format or in plain text? Test both mail methods
Enable content plugins in descriptions => This function is atm not enabled.

Show the Number of Products => display all products in the shop. Atm there is an unsolved question how to count child products without own stocking.
'no image' image => When no image is set, which image to show as placeholder
'no image found' image => Should never appear within normal testing and points to but in the mediahandler. To test this option, you must upload an image and delete it then manually.
Show footer => Atm unused. We will add here a possibility to choose a layout from the virtuemart view tmp folder, so that it is overridable by normal joomla template. Footer will work then with a simpel include.

more Core Settings
