Changing your site's appearance

Changing the look of your shopping cart

There are many things you can do to change the appearance of your cart.

Language file changes

You can change any string in your cart by using overrides to customize the language file which contains that string.


You can completely change the appearance of your site, or just any one page, using the template system.


Stylesheets control visual aspects of your site, such as font choices, colors and text sizes. You can customize stylesheets as part of your template.

Adding Pages

You have several options for adding a new page to your cart.

Still have questions? Use the Search box in the upper right, or try the full list of FAQs. If you can't find it there, head over to the Zen Cart support forum and ask there in the appropriate subforum. In your post, please include your Zen Cart and PHP versions, and a link to your site.

Is there an error or omission on this page? Please post to General Questions on the support forum. Or, if you'd like to open a pull request, just review the guidelines and get started. You can even PR right here.
