Joomla 2.5 has reached its end of life as for 12/31/2014. Please be advised this may be a security risk to your website. You can view more information about the end of life here.
Our VirtueMart for Joomla 2.5 tutorial series continues, and in this article we’ll discuss uploading category images. In our previous article, we added our first product category, Operating Systems. As Category Name was the only required field, that’s all we entered. After saving the new category, you can see that VirtueMart shows a PRODUCT Image Unavailable image. After creating a new category, you can add or change the category image at any time. We’ll show you just how to do that in this VirtueMart tutorial.
