    Features:
    * Fixed width 2 or 3 column display
    * Matching button set included
    * Matching icons
    * Home Page template included formatted with space for an image, navigation buttons, and welcome text.
    * Re-formatted Product Info Page
    * Tested using Firefox, IE7, IE6.

    Anne

    This is a wonderful new template, and a great starting point for my brand-new site. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.

    I have a few beginner questions, but I'm not sure this is the right forum for them. I'll have a go, though:

    1. how do I change the title?
    2. how do I disable things like the newsletter, reviews, sponsors sections? I seem to remember EZ-pages having something to do with this, but there's nothing in the EZ-pages section for this template (that I can see, anyway).
    3. if I want to customize the footer, I know that I put a modified footer.php file into includes/languages/english/an_upscale_boutique. The question is, where do I get the file to put here?

    Thanks again...I'm really looking forward to using this template, and to getting seriously started in ZC.

    1. If you mean the An Upscale Boutique text in the header, that's the logo image.

    2. Sideboxes are controlled in Admin - Tools - Sideboxes Controller

    3. Copy the file from includes/languages/english

    Hey, Steve -

    Thanks for the reply. Some follow-on questions, please:

    1. By "title" I meant the HTML title, the text that shows up at the top of the browser.

    2. Under Tools, I have a "Layout Boxes Controller"...I assume that's what you meant by "Sideboxes Controller." I don't see how to turn off the Sponsor display from here. Also, how do I control what shows up within a sidebox that I enable? There's a bunch of stuff under Information, for example, that I don't want, even though I do want the Information section itself to display.

    3. includes/languages/english doesn't have a footer.php file. When I wrote this question, I forgot that this is area is part of the overall wrapper. The areas I want to modify are identified as siteinfoIP, siteinfoLegal and bannerSix. What's the preferred method for changing these? I'm still trying to learn what kinds of changes are configurations vs. actually modifying code files.

    Thanks a lot.

    Well, I think I spelled everything right, anyway.

    1. http://tutorials.zen-cart.com/index.php?article=17

    2. Yes, it's Layout Boxes Controller. Some of the box names are a little strange. I think the Sponsors box is banner_box_all.

    3. Footer.php is in includes/modules, but you'll change the copyright and legal stuff in includes/templates/template_default/common/tpl_footer.php

    You'll save it to your custom template's 'common' folder.

    OK, I guess the right term is "browser bar."

    Yesterday, I edited includes/languages/english/UPSCALE/header.php to change the HEADER_ALT_TEXT and HEADER_SALES_TEXT defines.

    Now, I'm supposed to change includes/languages/english/meta_tags.php to make these changes. Did I misunderstand something, or is this really necessary to be done twice? (It's not that I'm lazy; I'm hoping the answer will help further my knowledge of the ZC gestalt a bit.)

    And, why am I modifying this meta_tags file instead of creating an overriding file in a CUSTOM directory like I did for the header? Is there a rule of thumb for the modify vs. override?

    Thanks.

    PS: the sponsor box is banner_box, not banner_box_all. I turned them both off.

    And, as long as I'm being nosy...I looked at my custom tpl_footer.php file (turns out it existed already). There's a test for a constant called "SHOW_FOOTER_IP" in there. I stumbled upon the Developers Tool Kit (very impressive, BTW) and found that I could modify this constant from it.

    So (and I realize I'm becoming tedious with this line of questioning), is this the "preferred" method of changing a constant like this? Or, is it normally done by editing a file? Or by some other admin pull-down I couldn't find?

    Thanks again.

    HEADER_ALT_TEXT and HEADER_SALES_TEXT are for the logo alt text and the tagline in the header.
    /includes/languages/english/meta_tags.php will have the defines for the address bar text, and you can save it as /includes/languages/english/UPSCALE/meta_tags.php.

    Generally, any file that can be overridden with the template system has a /classic/ folder as a neighbor. Create your own template subfolder to sit next to /classic/, and put the edited file in that, one level down from the original file.

    Anything that has an admin setting/switch is usually best handled in admin. In some cases, there are admin settings for things that would be more appropriately handled in the stylesheet, but you don't need to worry about those.

    There is an admin setting for footer IP, somewhere in Configuration (My Store or Layout Settings).
