This information refers to Zen Cart™ 1.3. Earlier versions may be slightly different.

After an initial ZenCart install you will see a webpage with a footer that contains several parts (optional banner advert, IP address, page generation time, copyright message, XHTML validation).


Configuration options

This table below shows most of the configuration options including language text for the Footer. It is based on a Zen Cart™ version 1.3.0. Before editing files copy the original file (if not done before) to YOUR_TEMPLATE directory.
