On September 20, 2019, Google launched an automatic breadcrumbs check on sites that are registered with Google Search Console, sending out alerts to Rich Snippets for errors on the site - specifically Breadcrumbs.

According to the Google specification, the last item in the navigation must also contain information about the item:

  • @type
  • name
  • position
  • item @type
  • item @id

In VirtueMart 3.4.3 10014, we found a bug in in the Question about product function. After using this feature, an email subject with strange characters will come: 

Rudolf Baláš recommend to you: Související produkty rozšířené pro Virtuemart

For the new e-commerce application PhocaCart from the Czech programmers Phoca we created a plugin for displaying meta tags - Rich Snippets for Phoca Cart.

The plugin works with microdata and creates complete mandatory and recommended meta tags for Product type information. At the same time, it allows you to display meta tags for breadcrumbs for the entire site (if you don't use the appropriate module from administration).

We have created a new portal www.minijoomla.org with e-shop for Joomla extension, Virtuemart, PhoCa Cart, Form2Content and other applications.

We have decided to capitalize on the many years of experience in developing websites and e-shops on opensource Joomla and Virtuemart, and to allow those interested in these systems to use our extensions and share our experience.
