  1. Move your mouse at the top of the page and hover it above the title Extensions.
  2. In the dropdown menu which appears select the Plug-in Manager.
  3. In the displayed list of plugins it could be hard to find the ReqText plugin, so enter ReqText in the Filter field and click Search.
  4. If the installation went well you can see one item which is called ReqText For VirtueMart. Check if the status is set to published ( man publish ). If not click man unpublish to publish the plugin.
