IKEA chooses VirtueMart !

Written by k0nan on .

As spotted by Steve Burge at joomla.org , IKEA uses Joomla! and VirtueMart to power his Kuwait and Saudi Arabia websites.

 

Just take a look at how flexible is VirtueMart about templating issues.

This is the kithcen page at ikea.com.kw , an example of custom theme for the browse page

 

 

 

 

While under here we can see the customized flypage

Found virtuemart easy to use e-commerce package, client in Cardiff have found it easy to use where we have used it, surprised ikea didn't use it before, though i agree with the above point, don't think they use it anymore, can anyone confirm this?

It also has dozens of bugs all over the place, the same which I've seen in every VirtueMart installation I've had to deal with:

- Everything is misaligned, cut off, or otherwise ugly
- The "Suggest product to a friend" feature doesn't work (always returns "Sending failed", see link)
- The "Return to product" link on the "Ask a question about this product" success page doesn't work ("Product not found")
- The "Search" results page has all the mysterious "Categories", "Sections", "News Feeds" etc. checkboxes from the default install
- The URLs are ugly
- The "Save" button on the cart page doesn't do anything

I like IKEA and their products, but I'm doubtful that using an Open Horst CMS for their Kuwaiti Site will be good publicity for them.

Sorry if I ruined your party.
