    Default ZC Overrides Cheatsheet

    This cheatsheet identifies the override possibilities for various directories in the Zen Cart structure. I thought I'd post it here before submitting it to the Free Software Add-Ons to see if there's any interest and/or suggestions for improvement.

    Just extract the files and then bring up the file zc_overrides_139.htm in your browser window.

    DrByte, the add-on you referenced identifies the locations of the template-specific overrides only. My submission attempts to pull together all the override possibilities available in Zen Cart.

    Fair. Was just curious. Hadn't reviewed yours yet.

    NOTES:
    a) /index_filters/YOUR_TEMPLATE/ is also valid since 1.3.9

    b) I would probably add a little emphasis to your comments about copying from template_default that it's *not* necessary to copy the *entire* template_default folder: just the files you want to change.

    c) I would also suggest adding to your comments about header_php.php files that a good reminder would be to NEVER rename any existing header_php.php files for backup purposes. ie: header_php-old.php would STILL get loaded, and could cause all manner of confusion and complicated debugging steps. (Same point is valid for all other auto-inclusion folders, but this one is particularly volatile because of the existing files vs the other folders where usually one is only adding new files.)

    DrByte, thanks for the comments; I'll incorporate them in my next iteration.

    Here's v1.0.1 of the cheatsheet. I've incorporated DrByte's comments and found another override location.

    BEYOND EXCELLENT.

    As to the renaming of files, I have a small addition to that of DrByte's. Renaming a file to .bak will raise PCI flags. I generally use my initials and rename filename_here.php to filename_here.jet. As long as you are not J.Paul Getty, George I Foxworthy, or Peter H Phillips, etc. there should be no problem. AND, your changes are easily found later with a search.
