This Joomla content plugin allows you to embed your Virtuemart 2 product information in a Joomla article. This is the ‘Pro’ version of the plugin, with extra layouts, the ability to display additional images for the product, and a more sophisticated add to cart button. 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.
In the latest release it is possible to list multiple products, by product id, sku, category, manufacturer, or product groups such as featured, latest or popular products, all with a simple line of code.
This plugin is similar to the product snapshot plugin that came with Virtuemart 1.1x. It optionally embeds a product thumbnail, plus product name, price, short and/or long description, add to cart button and link to the Virtuemart 2 product details page.
The plugin should work with the core Joomla content component articles, also with CCKs and articles extensions that support Joomla content plugins.
