I've been working on a CB Virtuemart plugin too - it was discussed in an older thread, but I finally think it's stable enough to warrant posting here. Note that this is definately *BETA* software and may well have critical bugs - test and test again before installing on a live site!

FYI all,

There's a new testing version out, updated to work with the newset versions of everything. Use with care as much as changed in the underlying components and I have been very busy, but thought it would be better to get this out for testing rather than leave it half-finished on my computer!

Project page is now here:

And there's some ongoing discussion here:

(copying the post I made on the VM forums):

Title: Community Builder integration
Hi all,

Sorry about the long delay, we haven't had time to keep the component updated as often as we would have liked. But we've found some time recently and I've got a version which may be suitable for testing - I was developing on

Joomla 1.5.6
Community Builder 1.1
Virtuemart 1.1.2

Due to some large changes in the components I've had to change the way the plugin works; at the moment, it doesn't replace the two virtuemart user information screens with the community builder ones, but it does allow for the same virtuemart tab in the community builder profile, and also handles synchronisation of users from virtuemart registrations into the CB user table.
At the moment it handles this in an inefficient way by running a CB sync-users command through a module which can be shown on any page the CB login box is shown.
One benefit of this change in architecture is that the plugin no longer requires hacking of any components; you install a CB plugin and a Joomla module, configure some options and it should be ok.

This hasn't been well tested at all, but considering the demand for this plugin I thought I'd release what's been done to the community and see if #1 there are any bug reports relating to different server/Joomla/component configurations, and #2 if there are any feature suggestions or ideas.

I'll be placing this on the JoomlaCode site right now, it'll be version 0.2.1. It should be treated as an Alpha/Beta release, please don't install it on your live site in case it breaks! Test it on a development site first and ensure that things work correctly for your particular setup.
