New/Featured/Special/Upcoming Products sections

Zen Cart Centerbox enable / disable

There is a “New Products for [insert month]” section on several pages, including Home Page, New-Products page, All-Products Page, (empty) Shopping Cart page, etc. These sections are called centerboxes.

There are several “sets” of settings for the Centerboxes.

When you go to Index Listing under Admin > Configuration, you will see options like:

  • Show New Products on Main Page
  • Show Featured Products on Main Page
  • Show Special Products on Main Page
  • Show Upcoming Products on Main Page
    • Note: the values you set are the Sort Order of the Centerboxes
    • Turn OFF by setting to 0 all of the ones you do NOT want to see displayed

The same is true on other similar configuration menus under Admin > Configuration:

For setting up the Centerboxes of the Empty Shopping Cart, use the settings on the Admin > Configuration > Stock, you will see the settings for:

  • Show New Products on Main Page
  • Show Featured Products on Main Page
  • Show Special Products on Main Page
  • Show Upcoming Products on Main Page
