The developer’s toolkit in zen cart is an advanced tool found in the zen cart admin area. It’s primary function is to list the zen cart files associated with or affecting various functions in your store. By using it, you can determine which file, or files you will need to modify to make a change in your zen cart store. It can save you a lot of time and trouble when making customizations to your website. In this Zen Cart Easy Help Tutorial, we will be taking a closer look at how you can use this tool when making customizations to your zen cart ecommerce store. For this purpose, we will walk you through the process of making a simple change to the welcome email text.
First of all, you will need to create an account on your own website, assuming that you do not already have one. This is something you should always have, whether you are a zen cart web developer, or just a store owner. Having an account on the website you are making changes to allows you to keep track of certain modifications, so that you know if your adjustments have actually gone into effect. This way, if something has gone wrong, you can troubleshoot the problem and get it fixed with minimal hassel.
Next, decide what you want to change. For this example, let’s say you want to rewrite, replace, or update the text in the welcome email that is sent out to customers when they sign up for an account on your website. After you have decided what you will be changing, open your zen cart admin area and log in. Then, navigate to the Tools-> Developers Tool Kit page.
