Zen-Cart is the Open Source shopping cart we’re using in the vast Richards web-empire.
It’s a fork of OsCommerce. They seem to be doing the same kind of cleanup that the OsCommerce team is doing, but actually delivering code. Version 1.1 seems much cleaner than the current OsCommerce build.
However, calling the documentation sketchy is flattering it, and it being early days yet, there are bugs and missing functions.
So, as I come up with info, I’ll be posting it here, as well as on the ZenCart site.
I figure we’ve all got more to do than time to do it, so I’ll be posting answers to my questions rather than leaving them as an exercise for the student:
Q. I changed my logo image according to the instructions, and set height and width. I got the new image, but it’s full size, not the size I specified.
A. I’m pretty sure this is a bug. HEADER_LOGO_HEIGHT and HEADER_LOGO_WIDTH are used in includes/templates/templatename/common/tpl_header.php to set the size of the
The fix is:
In includes/templates/templatename/common/tpl_header.php, change the line
‘ . zen_image($template->get_template_dir(HEADER_LOGO_IMAGE, DIR_WS_TEMPLATE, $current_page_base,’images’). ‘/’ . HEADER_LOGO_IMAGE, HEADER_ALT_TEXT) . ‘‘; ?>
‘ . zen_image($template->get_template_dir(HEADER_LOGO_IMAGE, DIR_WS_TEMPLATE, $current_page_base,’images’). ‘/’ . HEADER_LOGO_IMAGE, HEADER_ALT_TEXT, HEADER_LOGO_WIDTH) . ‘‘;
//added HEADER_LOGO_WIDTH to make zen_image size the image
This will cause the users browser to scale the image to the specified width, and scale the height proportionally.
