    Note that "removal" doesn't mean overwritten to not contain functional information, but just not present which has the potential of resulting in multiple issues even within a given site ruining running 1.5.8b depending how it came to exist. Issues may also depend on the version of the plugin in parallel relationship.

    Be prepared.

    Agreed, for any of my plugins that also support ZC versions prior to zc157 I'm checking the Zen Cart version and using the "old style" if that condition is found else using admin_html_head.php.

    @lat9 If you could post the block of code you're using as an example for other store maintainers and plugin authors, it would be great!

    OK, here's one:
    PHP Code:
    // -----
    // The initial version of GPSF-2 supports zc156, zc157 and zc158.  zc158b will be removing
    // the 'legacy' stylesheets and javascript provided in previous versions.  As such, determine
    // the Zen Cart base version in use to maintain the downwardly-compatible use of this module.
    //
    $gspf_zc_version = PROJECT_VERSION_MAJOR . '.' . PROJECT_VERSION_MINOR;
    $admin_html_head_supported = ($gspf_zc_version >= '1.5.7');
    $body_onload = ($admin_html_head_supported === true) ? '' : ' onload="init();"';
    ?>
    <!doctype html>
    <html <?php echo HTML_PARAMS?>>
    <head>
    <meta charset="<?php echo CHARSET?>">
    <title><?php echo TITLE?></title>
    <?php
    if ($admin_html_head_supported === true) {
        require 
    DIR_WS_INCLUDES 'admin_html_head.php';
    } else {
    ?>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="includes/stylesheet.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="includes/cssjsmenuhover.css" media="all" id="hoverJS">
    <script src="includes/menu.js"></script>
    <script src="includes/general.js"></script>
    <script>
    function init()
    {
        cssjsmenu('navbar');
        if (document.getElementById) {
            var kill = document.getElementById('hoverJS');
            kill.disabled = true;
        }
    }
    </script>
    <?php
    }
    ?>
    </head>
    <body<?php echo $body_onload?>>
        <?php require DIR_WS_INCLUDES 'header.php'?>
    <?php
