Strange, my first post on this disappeared. Joomla 2.5 Virtuemart 2.

Problem is many of the inventory control functions of VM are disabled in the eCommerce template. The Notify Me link, Availability message and other checkable options in VM don't work and don't show up on the product details pages. Instead, the Add To Cart Button stays showing even for products with zero inventory.

The reason this is a template issue is that when I switch to the Beez template, the Notify Me and Inventory Availability functions start working.

I have to have the inventory functions working for two eCommerce sites with hundreds of products already entered where the client sells some products in the cart, but many are on-of-a-kind where the Add To Cart has to be replaced with a message (the Notify Me function), which is the way VM is supposed to work.

How can I get this template to stop disabling VM inventory functionality?

Thank you for the response. While this brings back the functionality, it changes the view. The client has been working with your override layout and loves it. Are there files or portions of php that I could move into your product details html file to keep your template formatting and also have the inventory functionality?

Thank you so much. It works GREAT!

I spoke a little too soon. While this does restore the inventory functionality, it introduced a new problem. For products that have custom variation pricing (like Size), the drop down variation box is showing twice. You can see it here: www.ebug.biz/gallery/wall-art/laura-lee-.../on-the-rocks-detail

Regular prices, without the variations, are not doubled. It is also not due to the settings in which prices to show - I checked.
Edit: From the html/default.php file, I removed the "product-fields" div that runs from about line 172 to about 190. That looked like it was duplicated down lower. With this removed, there is only one instance of the custom size ordering drop down now. It also seems the Notify me, add to cart and drop down all still work. Please let me know whether this makes sense or if I may have broken something else.
Thanks again.
