Zen Cart How To Create Downloadable Products – Part Three

This Zen Cart tutorial is the third in a series which aims to teach zen cart users and store owners how they can create downloadable products. In this segment, we will discuss how you can add products using the ‘Attributes Controller’ located in the zen cart admin area.

In the last segment of this series, we talked about enabling multiple downloads per product. One of the things we will show you how to do here is make the Attribute read correctly based on the download number.

The first thing you need to do is open your zen cart admin. Navigate to Catalog==> Attributes Controller. Add your information into this area, in this format:


Option Name: Download 1
Option Value: of 5 [Download 1]
Download filename of file already uploaded to the /download folder.
Number of Days and Downloads

Option Name: Download 2
Option Value: of 5 [Download 2]
Download filename of file already uploaded to the /download folder.
Number of Days and Downloads

Option Name: Download 3
Option Value: of 5 [Download 3]
Download filename of file already uploaded to the /download folder.
Number of Days and Downloads

Option Name: Download 4
Option Value: of 5 [Download 4]
Download filename of file already uploaded to the /download folder.
Number of Days and Downloads

Option Name: Download 5
Option Value: of 5 [Download 5]
Download filename of file already uploaded to the /download folder.
Number of Days and Downloads

It should be noted that you do not need to worry about modifying the ‘sort order’ numbers. If you recall, you set these way back when you first created the downloadable products for which you are now adding information. Just make sure that after you add all your download information, you click the ‘update sort order’ button.
