Mike. many thanks for everything you'd done. It's been a painless process for me which has been a joy.
Marie Wolman,

Mike has been wonderful in patience, advice and encouragement whilst we developed our new Zen Cart website...  I can honestly say that the help and overall support given by Mike has been pretty amazing.
Edina Lacey,

Brilliant! The support, advice and help from Mike has been absolutely fantastic. I'm not that computer literate but patient tuition from Mike helped me to learn my way around Zen Cart, and I can now manage it pretty well, although I still have to telephone for a bit of help and advice now and then...
Paul Williams

Since moving our website development to Zenned in January Mike has been tireless in getting our Zen Cart working exactly how we wanted, plus his knowledge of SEO has raised our profile at Google right to the first page for many of our products - In 6 months our turnover has increased ten fold, and we have needed to take on new staff to cope with the increased online order volume!

Zen Cart Tips

With a few exceptions the texts displayed in Zen Cart are defined either in the includes/languages/english.php file, or in the includes/english/languages/ folder which contains individual files relating to the page being displayed.

The above assumes you are setting your Zen Cart up in English - If you are setting up in another language, then the 'base language file would be.. includes/languages/yourlanguage.php and the folder name would be includes/languages/yourlanguage/

The following is a list of the most commonly texts that you might want to change

Text to Change Answer
Change "Congratulations! You have successfully installed your Zen Cartâ„¢; E-Commerce Solution" shown on the front page Click
Change the displayed weight on the product display or shopping cart pages from lbs to kg Click
Change ''Zen Cart!, The Art of E-commerce'' text shown in the title bar of the browser Click

Important Note:: In all cases where you edit text definitions make sure that the single quote marks at each end of the text being defined (example define('TITLE', 'Zen Cart!'); ) are not left out or a PHP error will occur, resulting in a blank page when accessing your Zen Cart store.
