When you install Zen Cart, one of the prompts asks if you wish to install the demo data. Doing so is an excellent way to see a store which is fully set up, allowing you to explore the features of Zen Cart.
Here are some common scenarios which are shown in the demo data:
- uploads - product id 34 (A Bug’s Life “Multi Pak”) has attributes called “Logo Front” and “Logo Back” which are images the customer would upload.
- downloads - product id 166 (Russ Tippins Band - The Hunter) has a downloadable attribute to show how to attach a digital media file to a product. Product 180 shows a PDF file being attached to a product.
- pricing by attributes - product id 47 (Gift Certificates by attributes) shows how to modify the price according to which radio button is selected.
- color swatches: product id 54 (Min and Units NOMIX) shows the use of color samples on a product. Note that product 44 (A Mixed OFF Product with Attributes) also offers multiple colors but does not show swatches.
Demonstrations of many other features can be found simply by searching for the feature name.
