    Default Clarification of Upgrade Instructions

    The following instructions are vague to me:

    As you make your list of changed files, etc, at this stage, you may want to move things into the Zen Cart™ template-override structure, if you haven't already done so. See the Zen Cart™ site for FAQ's on the template system.
    At this stage I'm comparing the original files and folders to my current LIVE installation, it this instructing me to move MYTEMPLATE overrides to the original file/folders?

    What this is saying is this is a good time to check for conformance rather than simply carrying over the mistakes of the past.

    - If you've modified a file in includes/templates/template_default, then move it to your template instead (after applying the changes from 1.3.8). The original one from the distribution should be in includes/templates/template_default.
    - If you've modified a file in includes/modules/sideboxes, then move it to your template instead (after applying the 1.3.8 changes). Put the original one from the distribution in includes/modules/sideboxes.

    etc.

    If you did it properly, there won't be any additional work, but if you took shortcuts, now's the time to fix them.

    Ok, so if I was diligent in making all my template mods according to the override structure, I should be ok.

    I realize that there still may be other code changes espcially for add ons.

    thanks. I just need to be doubly sure.
