This zen cart tutorial features the Dover Fine free responsive zen cart template.
This spectacular design features a dramatic full page slide show on the home page which puts your products front and center for your customers immediate attention. The slide show is fully customizable through the zen cart admin – tools – banner manager. Add your slides, add the links for your slides, and add your banner titles. You can also specify whether to open the link in the same or a new window, or specify any of the other native settings for banners.
Another great feature of this template is Optimized Drop Down Navigation. On the desktop, laptops, and landscape tablets, the full drop down menu shows. On portrait tablets, and landscape and portrait phones the mobile menu automatically shows. The mobile menu is optimized for usability on these devices and touch enabled.
The custom product info page layout features a tabbed product description, details, reviews, and a custom tab (ad your content using the banner manager) which converts automatically to accordions on hand held devices. Showing product reviews on the product info page is important and will help your conversion rates.
The zen cart admin is packed with functionality. Here is a handy overview of all of the module menu options.
