WordPress® for Zen Cart (wp4zen)

Description
Zen Cart is a one of the best open source frameworks to build an online shopping cart while WordPress is known as one of the best open source content management system (CMS) for creating blogs. Each has its own outstanding features, but the combination of these two systems create a great product which we are calling "WordPress for Zen Cart® (wp4zen)". Basically, "WordPress for Zen Cart® (wp4zen)" is a series of Zen Cart sideboxes which displays WordPress content that can be used to integrate WordPress into Zen Cart so that shopowners can display WordPress content in their Zen Cart store.

--What it does--
These sideboxes are meant to link your WordPress blog to your Zen Cart store without having to implement complicated WordPress blog-embedding solutions/add-ons. These sideboxes pull content links directly from the WordPress blog. All a store owner has to do is to style their WordPress blog to match their store.

Some may find these sideboxes are a lot less work than it would have been to troubleshoot all of the other issues with other blog-embedding solutions.

The following sideboxes are included:
~ Blog Archive. Sidebox which displays a list of posts grouped by year and month. Admin configuration comes with various options.
~ Blog Categories. Sidebox displays the blog posts by category.Admin configuration comes with various options.
~ Blog Pages. A configurable sidebox to list blog pages and sub-pages. Admin configuration comes with various options.

~ WordPress installed and operable. Tested with WordPress versions v3.5.1 through v4.x.
