    To override a file in the /includes/languages/english/ folder you would put your changed copy in the /includes/languages/english/Cherry_zen/ folder. Make sure the folder capitalization is the same as what is in the downloaded files. If they are not capitalized, yours must not be capitalized either.

    If you still have problems, post a link to your site so we can see for certain what you should be using.

    new template director: /public_html/store/includes/languages/Cherry_zen
    The only file that goes here is your customized english.php file.

    See these tutorials:

    yeah this is what I have, only the english.php file.

    I have now made two file directories just checking if either worked:
    /public_html/store/includes/languages/english/Cherry_zen and
    /public_html/store/includes/languages/Cherry_zen and neither has worked

    page is www.babychilli.com.au and im trying to change the lbs to kgs.

    thanks for your help

    Did you notice my question about capitalization? Your store is actually using
    /includes/templates/cherry_zen/
    so all template folders need to be named exactly like that:
    /cherry_zen/
    not
    /Cherry_zen/

    ahh thanks for that, I thought it was Cherry_zen as thats what the file downloaded as
    I will change it now and see if it makes a difference

    by the way, how did you know that?

    **Yeah!! just checked and it worked!! thanks a bunch :) **

    by the way, how did you know that?
    open the page in your browser and do a view source,
    it shows you the template name in the top
