Customizing the text for your store’s tag line or sales message is one of the first things you will do after installing a new template. This text is located up in the header section of the web site. In the “classic” template that comes installed with the zen cart it looks like this:
To customize this text you need to:
1. Open the includes/languages/english/header.php file in your favorite text editor.
***This is a php file and MUST be edited in a plain text editor. If you try to edit this file in any type of wysiwyg editor, the code will be corrupted and when you insert the file back into your zen cart it will break your entire site.***
2. Find this line (it will be on or around line 22):
'Sales Message Goes Here'
3. Delete between the single quotes the
Sales Message Goes Here text and then add your customized text:
'Your Custom Text Goes Here'
***Be very careful not to DELETE THE SINGLE QUOTES or add any extra spaces or characters anywhere else in the file. If you do this, then when you insert the file back into your zen cart it will break your entire site.***
4. Save your modified file to your template override directory includes/languages/english/your override directory/header.php and upload it to your server.
This is one in a series of planned tutorials about customizing the look of your zen cart store.
