November 13, 2008 in Free Zen Cart Templates
Is this useful? Like it.
Some users have told me that most free Zen Cart templates or even commercial Zen Cart templates are just too narrow for their liking. It seems that there is a demand for wider (fixed-width) templates. Here’s one I created — 1000px width. Good enough to accommodate the left and right columns at 200px or more, and still leave enough room to fit 3~4 products per row in the center column comfortably.
Installation instructions (this is also included in the ZIP download):
- Extract to appropriate location:
- Login to your Zen Cart admin to enable the template:
Admin > Tools > Template Selection > Click ‘Edit’ button
- Reset the side boxes:
Admin > Tools > Layout Boxes Controller > Click ‘Reset’ button
- Set the column width:
Admin > Configuration > Layout Settings > Column Width – Left Boxes (set to 200 pixels or whatever you like)
Admin > Configuration > Layout Settings > Column Width – Right Boxes (set to 200 pixels or whatever you like)
Zen Cart Version: 1.5.0, 1.3.9 and 1.3.8
