Zen Cart template manual configuration

This step shows how to configure Zen Cart template manually. In case you already imported the template SQL files you can skip this step.

1. First of all you need to configure the store modules.

Go to 'Tools' then 'Layout Boxes Controller' and turn on the side boxes you would like to use. This template is set for both to use: right and left side boxes

To configure the modules like on the template preview please use the following settings:
