Integrating my LMS and VirtueMart with Helix Ultimate and Page Builder Pro.

Featured Lock Resolved Bug
Hi,

I am only a few days into trying to convert my old Yootheme themed site (https://www.certifiedinfosec.com/) to Helix Ultimate and Pagebuilder Pro site (https://www.certifiedinfosec.com/helix-home). It's taken me a while to catch up my ancient "joomla theme" thinking to recognize that joomshaper pages display in a Helix Ultimate world riding on top of joomla. I have found that creating a simple menu link that runs a JoomlaLMS LMS (http://www.joomlalms.com) system blows up since I am trying to get Helix to run a component in its world, which would require an integration middleware capability to port the LMS component into a Page Maker Page. The Joomla LMS launch page is actually run by the joomla LMS. The launch page has my old yootheme applied, and they co-exist okay - displaying the JoonlaLMS conponent alongside normal joomla modules all on the ame page (https://www.certifiedinfosec.com/e-learning-portal). Once the user logs in and chooses to launch a course, joomlalms applies its own template thereafter, so there are no compatibility issues. Unfortunately, trying to show a joomlalms launch page from a menu item themed with Helix turns into havoc!

Sorry for the extensive context. Here are my questions:


1. Does this mean I need to have my menu item to the joomlaLMS system run as a native JoomlaLMS system link with it's own proprietary theme applied?

2. Do I also need to run my Matukio event component in a "safe" joomla them away from Helix Ultimate? See https://www.certifiedinfosec.com/events.

3. Do I need to run VirtueMart 3 in a "safe" joomla theme away from Ultimate? I see the Arino template runs on Helix, but it is only compatible with J2Store. I have to stay with VirtueMart since it's the only ecommerce that is compatible with the LMS. I see that Mega Deals 2 works with VM, but not Helix Ultimate.

If the answer is yes to all of this, I think all I can really do with Helix Ultimate is make a pretty front page.

Thanks for your feedback.

Update:

I got the JoomlaLMS system to work in the component position of a Helix Ultimate of a menu link with the Helix ultimate template applied. Unfortunately, I need other joomla modules to run along side (login) and they have no colors or theme since the modules are not taken care of by Page Maker Pro. Ugly.

I tried to run my Matukio Event component the same way as a menu assigned link. It works half-way, but is mostly broken. List of events works, then try clicking on event details for any event. https://www.certifiedinfosec.com/events-helix.

Here is how it is supposed to work on regular joomla: https://www.certifiedinfosec.com/events.

I have not tried VirtueMart yet. So far, not response from the developer at all.

Hi there,

Sorry for the late response. Thanks for contacting us to use our product.

1. Your component view will display inside the Helix component area
2. If you want to place a module right or left side then you can do it easily. But, You need to apply CSS if you need
3. Specifically JoomlaLMS, Virtuemart is not compatible with the Helix Ultimate or Helix3. But, I can ensure that it will work perfectly. Just you need to modify some CSS code.

-Thanks

Hi.

Thanks for your support. Please clarify if VM3 will work in the component position of Helix Ultimate or not. You say it won't and then you say it definitely will. Not sure what that means.

Regarding the Matukio issue, please look at a subsequent post that Frank answered at https://www.joomshaper.com/forums/component-not-working-properly-in-helix-ultimate. My Matukio Events component will not run properly in the component position. The templet still conflicts and messes with it.

Here's how the component supposed to run: https://www.certifiedinfosec.com/events/event/146-grc-week/513-grc-week.

Here's how it doesn't run under Helix Ultimate: https://www.certifiedinfosec.com/events-helix/event/146-grc-week/513-grc-week.

Frank say conflicts caused by the template are not Joomshaper's problem. If this can't be resolved, I want a refund I am entitled to since I am within my 7-day guarantee period.

If I need CSS tweaks to run VM in the component position, what are the tweaks?

Hi Allen Keele,

Thanks for your feedback. Definitely you deserve details, what you can or what you cannot do.

Thanks for your support. Please clarify if VM3 will work in the component position of Helix Ultimate or not. You say it won't and then you say it definitely will. Not sure what that means.

Ans: Yes, the VM element will display inside the Helix component area. But, If you need to do modify CSS, then you have to do it by yourself.

CSS tweaks means, seems your button color doesn't match your site color and you want to remove some element from the VM items then you have to work inside the component.

Note: If you show me the problem, I will try to help you.

-Thanks

That's okay. I've learned what I need to know. Helix will make a pretty site so long as it's simple and doesn't actually support other non-JS extensions without a lot of coding and extra work, which defeats the purpose of a template for me.

Not a solution for me.

Thanks anyway.
