In our previous tutorial we installed VirtueMart for Joomla 2.5. The next thing we will want to do is create a link in our main menu to our VirtueMart store.
To create a VirtueMart menu item in Joomla 2.5:
- Log into Joomla 2.5 Dashboard
- In the top menu, hover over Menus, hover over the menu you want to place your VirtueMart link in, and then click Add New Menu Item
- Next to Menu Item Type, click Select
- Under Select a Menu Item Type, find and click the frontpage link under the VirtueMart header
- Next to Menu Title, enter the text for the link. In our example, we entered Shop Online
- In the top right menu, click Save & Close
We will now begin adding products to our online store, and we will start with first adding new product categories.
