Problem when logging in during checkout process as existing user


    Using j1.5.5 and vm 1.1.2:
After adding a product to the cart, then logging in as an existing user,
I get redirected to a page that simply says:

Welcome to the registered user area of our site.

the url of the page: index.php?option=com_user

What could cause this?

PS: If I register as a new user instead of logging in as existing user, the process goes smoothly through the cart process with no glitches.


My workaround fix is to add a link to the shopping cart on that "Welcome to the registered user area of our site" doofy page:

ERROR [include_code_listing plugin]: File Not Found (C:/Inetpub/vhosts/joomlavm.com/httpdocs/display codes/shopcart.html)

How to remove quantity plus and minus button

Q: I don't what those 2 tiny ^ and v button showing next to my quantity box.  What file do I edit to remove that?  I looked in addtocart_form.tpl.php is themes/default/templates/browse/includes folder but I do not see codes responsible for those 2 buttons there.

A1:You can change the quality selection for each product on the Display Options tab - Quantity:
A2:edit theme.css

.inputboxattrib {
   float: left;
   margin-top: 0px;
   vertical-align: middle;
   margin-bottom: 2px;

.quantitycheckbox {
   margin-top: 6px;
   vertical-align: middle;

Lightbox / slimbox special characters patch

  The slimbox version included in virtuemart does not handle properly images with special characters, like (, [ and sometimes spaces.The bug can be solved editing the file /components/com_virtuemart/js/slimbox/js/slimbox.js,and replacing the line 139:
this.image.style.backgroundImage = 'url('+this.images[this.activeImage][0]+')';with:
this.image.style.backgroundImage = 'url("'+this.images[this.activeImage][0]+'")';
