In our previous tutorial we installed VirtueMart for Joomla 3.x. The next thing we will want to do is create a link in our main menu to our VirtueMart store.

To create a VirtueMart menu item in Joomla 3.x:

Step 1: Log into Joomla Dashboard

Step 2: In the top menu, hover over Menus, hover over the menu you want to place your VirtueMart link in, and then click Add New Menu Item


Step 3: Next to Menu Item Type, click Select

Step 4: Under Select a Menu Item Type, find and click the frontpage link under the VirtueMart header


Step 5: Next to Menu Title, enter the text for the link. In our example, we entered Shop Online

Step 6: In the top right menu, click Save & Close

Congratulations, you have successfully created in Joomla 3.x a VirtueMart menu item that links to your store front page!


We will now begin adding products to our online store, and we will start with first adding new product categories.
