Forgive me if this is a question question that I should have already found but I could not find what I was looking for so here we are...

I installed Joomla 1.5.7 and then installed the "Your Store" template. I would like to be able to upload products in a database format. Is this possible? Could someone please help or point me in the right direction?

Also, I expected to see the shopping cart on the page when I opened it but it only has the Joomla sample stuff. Do I need to clear that off first or am I missing something else?

Thanks in advance,

Hey Dave,

You need to grab the component called VirtueMart for Joomla.  This is the eCommerce plugin that will give you the shopping cart functionality.  It can be download at
