How to switch colors

Please browse to downloaded file to this address : includes\templates\herbally\css

you will find these files.

Please rename filename and just remove COLOR_ before the file that you want to activate. For example , if you want to activate orange color on the website , just rename COLOR_stylesheet_orange.css to stylesheet_orange.css. Thats all !


Notes

  1. In order to edit any color , font etc , you will have to edit style.css file manually (Due to limitations of Zencart ).
  2. To edit slider images and welcome text , you will have to edit homepage template file. (can be done from admin panel , no file hacking required).
  3. To change logo , you will need to upload logo.png to images folder (more details provided in docs.)
  4. Zencart does not have options of building the menu items on-demand yet. I have included most-used menu items though. They will list all categories (dynamic) and required static pages in drop down by default . But if you want to change it , you will need to manually edit in a file.(more details provided in docs.)

Special features

  • If site has many categories, this template uses a system called “source ordered” which helps to load the main content (product text, prices, etc.) first on your site and this also helps search engine optimization.
  • Flexible aspect ratio of site (including logo).
  • Automatic Sideboxes stack up NOTE: Sideboxes display only on ONE side.

Logo Modifications

  • To change logo → upload your logo.png to includes/templates/herbally/images/ (more details provided in docs.)
  • Additionally you can adjust logo's CSS in stylesheet:
#logo img {
	width:100%;
	} 

Remove Default Messages

To remove default messages:

  • Turn them off under “Configuration”, “Layout Settings”
  • Also turn off from “Customer Greeting - Show on Index Page”
  • Open up includes/languages/english/herbally/index.php and change the terms as you want.

  4. To remove the about us page, open up includes/templates/herbally/common/tpl_drop_menu.php and remove this line (approx. line 63)
<li><a href="<?php echo zen_href_link(FILENAME_ABOUT_US); ?>"><?php echo HEADER_TITLE_ABOUT_US; ?></a></li>
