A few questions on istore configurations

Featured Lock Resolved
1. How do I change the currency symbol to show on left of the price (currently it shows in the right side)?
2. How to show the Indian currency symbol on the site?
3. Just added another product category (in left menu). After this, "Latest Items" tab is not showing anything. I have not changed any other setting.

I shall be most grateful if you could guide me on the above points.

Warm regards

in order to get the space between the price and the currency symbol go to the line 50 in
and add this
" ".

like this
$item->price = round($item->prices['salesPrice'], 2) ." ". $currency->getSymbol();

1. If you know module override then override the News Show SP2 module.
2. I think you already did that.
3. There is a settings in virtuemart configuration for latest products. Just increase the day limit.

Thanks for the help.

1. I couldn't understand the 'module override' part but got a post on this forum itself to do some changes in:


That did the job but, as it pointed out, cant seem to add a space between the currency and the value. Just to make it more presentable. Any ideas?

2. done
3. done, Can I keep the products under the latest tab showing endlessly without putting the days limit?

One more thing, can you suggest an accordion menu or a vertical menu for virtuemart that is suitable for istore template?

1. You need to edit the default.php file from the tml folder. Please create a folder in your templates "html" directory and name it "mod_news_show_sp2" and place the file there and edit.
