    Default Hope [multipurpose] Template Support Thread

    Hello everyone, I'm happy to release our new free template for Zencart community.
    Back in 2006-2008 if you remember we released some free templates from our website that became so popular, and then we were so busy with work and never released any free templates again since, so here we are again hoping to contribute something

    Here is our new template called: Hope - Multipurpose ZenCart Template

    See a live demo



    Some features of this template:
    1. Integrated horizontal dropdown menu with jQuery effect
    2. Column grid layout
    3. CSS3 hover box shadow on product display
    4. Fly-out category menu
    5. Can be used for 2 or 3 columns layout
    6. Shopping cart total and currency in header
    7. Foreign language buttons ready (dutch, spanish, german, french, swedish)

    Compatible with Zencart v1.50 and v1.3.9 and v1.3.8 (Should work with v1.3.7 and earlier but we didn't test it yet)

    Please post any bugs or questions here.

    Download is available here:

    Day-um! Yet another great looking free template. There was a time when zencart users had a pretty sparce template selection, but now I think zencart has the best free selection of any open source shopping cart (insofar as I've yet seen.) And IMO yours is in the top echalon of a select pack.

    One question: I notice some validation errors, which is about the first thing I check. I can only imagine how hard it is to make a great template, especially if willing to take some risks to enhance it. Are validation errors that critical (I know some must be) for search engines and browsers?

    Anyway, great job on a really outstanding-looking template!

    (I'll have to get this template and test it on one of my sites soon.)

    Take a look at this article for some quick points on why validation is important:

    Thanks. Like the article says, big stores might get away with errors, I guess because they don't really rely on google/search engines. But for myself and most of us here using Zencart we need every edge we can get to compete, and a good-looking, fast, professional site without errors is the ideal thing. No point starting off handicapped with errors, unless perhaps the template is especially great looking and one is willing to trade some errors for looks. I know I can't correct much more than the typical "alt" and "ampersand" errors. Digging into the code is too dangerous...although I've done it now and then. I always feel much more comfortable with validation pass, at least knowing that isn't potentially working against me.

    I downloaded and briefly tested this template on a secondary dress site. Looked great! Did notice the typical search in header was missing, but I suppose could be added or use sidebox advanced search.

    Did notice that template is not as "free" as most, having some restrictions on use.

    But a great looking free template. One could feel very comfortable knowing they at least have a professional-looking site. (Reminds me of the Rubik Modern Zen template I'm using on yet another secondary site, they way the Category, Specials, All, New are laid out.)

    My pleasure in seeing your work.

    Suggestion for next release: maybe put a search box in place of your link in black horizontal nav?
