Great service and great program. Thanks


Thanks Igor!
Hands down the best support from any developer I have had since using Virtuemart and Joomla. Igor was on hand when I needed him and did not question what I wanted to achieve - he just helped me achieve it. The plugin itself is a great and easy to use program that makes the basic VM functions look much better in product pages. I would without a doubt use magic tool box for any plugins that I needed and they provided - 5 star all round from me!


excellent outil utilisé avec virtuemart. Simple et efficace. Bonne réactivité des auteurs en cas de question.
