h1. Some words about testing
2 10 Max Milbers
3 10 Max Milbers
It happens quite often that people say there is a bug, but they just misconfigured vm.
4 10 Max Milbers
When you test the template system, please read [[Hints for the use of the template system]]
5 10 Max Milbers
When you want to test the checkout, be sure that you configured a paymentmethod, a shipper and a shippingrate.
6 10 Max Milbers
Often people think that VM calculates wrong prices, but forget to consider that the product costprice, the calculation rules and displayed prices can have different currencies.

_When you tested a feature or view completly without finding a bug, please note the used revision behind the headline. For example [[Manufacturer]] (view=manufacturer) last tested rev. 3068_

h1. System Requirements:
11 1 Max Milbers
12 16 Jörg Kiekebusch
It is useful to test virtuemart installed in a subdirectory of your http directory. For example localhost/vm2. This is for testing if the pathing is working correct.
13 1 Max Milbers
14 15 Max Milbers
Use joomla 1.5 (latest)
15 1 Max Milbers
16 1 Max Milbers
As tester you should have installed your joomla with a custom prefix (not jos_) this quite important to find tables with hardcoded prefix.
17 1 Max Milbers
18 1 Max Milbers
Use different browsers. Virtuemart should work without glitches at least on IE8, FF, chrome, safari and opera.
19 15 Max Milbers
20 15 Max Milbers
Remember that testers and developers must install jdump*

Test the frontend with java script enabled and disabled.

Test what happens, when you change the post data. For example when you remove it, or enter a product which is not published.
31 6 Max Milbers
Test the frontend as anonymous and registered shopper.
32 12 Max Milbers
Consider testing with SEO enabled, that the bug maybe in the SEO feature. So when you find a bug with SEO enabled, test it also without SEO enabled. Consider that,
33 12 Max Milbers
* SEO is a cosmetical feature and can be broken and fixed again easily
34 12 Max Milbers
* It can easily happen that a feature is working, but just not with SEO

h1. Backend Testing
38 1 Max Milbers
39 4 Max Milbers
The relative url /administrator/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=config means that it points to the Backend (/administrator) and that it points on the view named config.
40 4 Max Milbers
41 4 Max Milbers
Most backend views have a "list view" and an "edit view"
42 4 Max Milbers
43 4 Max Milbers
list views have always the buttons: New, Edit, Publish, Unpublish, Delete 
44 4 Max Milbers
New => create new item
45 4 Max Milbers
publish/unpublish => make selected items accessible (or not) from frontend
46 4 Max Milbers

47 4 Max Milbers
