Let me guess, you’ve got a Joomla/Virtuemart site up, but your visitors aren’t seeing any helpful error messages. Am I right? Say I try and log in with a bogus username, you’d like to see that error message down there.
Username and password do not match or you do not have an account yet.
…but instead you’re just getting a page refresh. Confusing, huh? Well, lucky for you it’s a simple template fix.
- Log into the Joomla admin panel and navigate to “Extensions->Template Manager.”
- Click on the name of your “Default” template (it should be starred).
- Click the “Edit HTML” button in the upper right.
- Add the below code to the template file right above the
<jdoc:include type="component" />line.
<body> ... <!-- Display Error Messages --> <jdoc:include type="message" /> <!-- End Messages --> <jdoc:include type="component" /> ... </body>
