    Default Re: Trying to add text above footer

    Thanks for the fast reply. I never had any luck inserting the text into that default template. I tried it so many times last night, publishing it to my cherry_zen folder, too, and the text would not show up on the main page.

    Can I not just leave it this way, it looks like I want it to.

    Thanks again for helping me last night. I was SO confused.
    I DID IT, I actually built a working cart, with the help of so many of you, Stevesh, Schoolboy, RescoCCC, to name a few. I just take one bite out of the elephant at a time and try to keep my sense of humor...

    Copy /includes/templates/template_default/templates/tpl_index_default.php to /includes/templates/cherry_zen/templates/tpl_index_default.php and add your text near the end of that file.

    i did that with no luck.

    cherry zen doesn't have that index file, so i just edited and copied the default template, the exact one you are telling me to do.

    i have some errands to run, but i'll work with it when i get home. maybe i didn't do what i THOUGHT i did

    thanks so much, hope you're having a good morning!

    If you're adding your content in the location you show in post 14, and you save the edited file correctly, it will show up.

    Default Re: Trying to add text above footer

    Hi All,

    Great advice from you guys.

    I'm having a simliar problem. I'm looking to add more content to my home page site but want to do it at the bottom of the site just above the header.

    As far as I can see the file to edit is tpl_index_default.php and save a copy into your template (so it overrides the default one)

    BUT I'm not sure where to add the new content - what line and what code do I need.

    Sorry if being a bit slow!

    You would probably want to add your content near the bottom of that file, just before or maybe just after the closing </div> of the center content. This assumes you want the new content only on the home page. If you want it on all pages, you would need to use a different file depending on your exact needs.

    And be sure to save your edited file in a template override folder and not in /template_default/, so your changes are not erased when you upgrade to a new version of Zen Cart. If you are not familiar with the template override system, study the tutorials on it.

    If you do not file a customized version of Zen car will use the default version.
