How to get rid of (fix) Virtuemart error "Info: Your browser does not accept cookies. To put products into your cart and purchase them you need to enable cookies"

Frustrating isn't it? When you get an system message like "Info: Your browser does not accept cookies. To put products into your cart and purchase them you need to enable cookies" and you know you have cookies enabled, so you know Virtuemart is going to show your visitors the same message. Have no fear, it's an easy fix.

Go to the Joomla administrator backend and click on Components>Virtuemart. Under the Admin section of the Virtuemart pane (on the left) click the option configuration. Scroll right down to where you see the subsection "Core Settings".

Deselecting the option "Enable the Cookie Check?" will stop the error " "Info: Your browser does not accept cookies. To put products into your cart and purchase them you need to enable cookies"from appearing. Now click "save" for the changes to take affect.

That's it done, it's that easy. That pesky "browser does not accept cookies" won't bother you again.
