VirtueMart – Terms-of-Service Checkbox Field Shows Up With ToS Disabled

I’m having troubles making the TOS (Terms Of Service) on my cutomers web site work. After much troubleshooting and research on Google, I discovered that the issue has already been reported  on this forum https://forum.virtuemart.net/. There I found the solution and decided to post it here for future reference. Maybe this might help someone else.

This web site in question is using VirtueMart 2.0.18/Joomla 2.5.9

Problem:

After configuring the “Terms Of Service” (shop –> vendor) and making sure the following are activated, the TOS simply cannot be viewed. On the checkout page, the link to the TOS is same as the main index page. (example: http://www.mysite.com/)

a) Must agree to Terms of Service on EVERY ORDER? [checked] (Configuration –> Checkout)

c) agreed (Configuration –> Shopper Fields –> agreed – checked and click required)

Solution:

As there is not fix at the moment, I decided to disable this feature for now by unchecking option “a and b” above. While the TOS link is removed from the checkout page, the checkbox will remain untill you perform the option “c” make sure “Not Required” ist clicked this time.

 

Summary:

VirtueMart v2.0.18 / Joomla 2.5.9

To disable the “Terms Of Service”, do the following:

a) Must agree to Terms of Service on EVERY ORDER? [unchecked] (Configuration –> Checkout)

b)Show Terms of Service on the cart/checkout? [unchecked]

c) agreed (Configuration –> Shopper Fields –> agreed – checked and click Not Required)

I hope this will help someone in search for solutions to these problems.
