Basic 158+ Language Customizations

Starting from scratch for 1.5.8 with language files

If your pre-158 cart has a large number of language file overrides, it may be easier for you to just start fresh with the 1.5.8 language files and apply a minimal set of customizations. Use the following tables as a guide.

Note: You will still want your define page customizations from includes/languages/english/html_includes/YOURTEMPLATE, which you can use as-is.

File Defines
lang.english.php HEADER_ALT_TEXT, HEADER_LOGO_IMAGE, HEADER_LOGO_WIDTH, HEADER_LOGO_HEIGHT
