Joomsef to Virtuemart Patch/Fix for SEO & SEF URL's
As I have already spoken about in one of my other code snippets; Joomsef is one of the best SEF components available for Joomla. It converts URL's from the base installation of Joomla into more readable search engine optimized URL's.
Unfortunately the makers of JoomSEF want to charge to extend the SEF and SEO functionality to work for certain other components, one of which isVirtuemart. In most cases the URL's are not english and readable, so this affects the ranking and recognition by search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN.
Download the file below and follow the directions contained within. Works on Joomla 1.0.12 stable, Virtuemart 1.1.10 & JoomSEF 1.5.0 (get the hacked copy from my site www.kangainternet.com.au, hacked because I removed the Artio hidden tags!!!)

1. Extract the zip file locally
2. upload the extracted contents, "com_virtuemart.php" file to your "<webroot>/components/com_sef/sef_ext" folder.
