Chapter 1. The VirtueMart Engine

In this chapter, we will briefly review the Joomla!/VirtueMart file structure. We will then continue to explain the presentation framework of Joomla! and VirtueMart. A high-level view of the VirtueMart engine will be presented and we will see how the VirtueMart theme and template fits in the whole system. After that, we will be able to understand the various ways to customize the VirtueMart shop and provide a list of items we need to consider before heading on a customization project.
