    To change the name of page_2, page_3 or page_4

    The short answer is yes. You can use one of two methods to achieve the result.

    First method:

    Install the Images for Titles mod from Free Addons, following the instructions in its readme.
    Upload an image file for each sidebox heading you want to substitute, named (for instance) boxhead-categories.gif in the case of the Categories sidebox. Save the image in /includes/templates/CUSTOM/buttons/ENGLISH/.
    If you want to use other than .gif files for the images, edit the define in /includes/languages/ENGLISH/extra_definitions/CUSTOM/image_titles_defines.php.

    This method automatically removes the [more] that follows a replaced heading link; but it does require that the same image type (gif, jpeg, png) be used for all replaced heading images in an area.

    "Template Override" and "Override System" are terms used to describe the collection of files needed to build or customize the look of your cart. Using Overrides allows you to make and save changes to your cart without the fear of losing them when upgrades and patches are released. Also See: The Override System Simplified. ...

    Zen Cart uses language files or a "languages system"  to define the text content used by the various display pages of your cart.

    An obvious benefit of the "languages system" is the ability to run Zen Cart in another language or several languages at the same time. Using these files allows you to edit/change the text/content that appears on every page of your shop without needing to understand databases or programming languages.

    The information in these files can be placed into four categories as follows:

    Global information which contains text that is used across the entire site. This information is contained in includes/languages/english.php.

    Page Specific information contains text used by individual pages in your cart. This information is contained in includes/languages/ENGLISH/???.php,

    Your Own Definitions can contain text you might find necessary in your particular shop. This information is contained in include/languages/ENGLISH/extra_definitions/???.php

    Complete pages are default pages used by Zen Cart and can be edited as necessary. You can also add your own pages if you find that necessary. These files are located in includes/languages/ENGLISH/html_includes/define_???.php.
