Why does this plugin not work with Template Monster Templates?

Plugin works with template_default or responsive_classic, but not my template

Zen Cart plugins often depend on built-in Zen Cart features, which are removed as an expedient by Template Monster developers.

If you’re using a Template Monster template and a change you are trying isn’t working, you’ll need to figure out the difference between the relevant default files and the files that your template is using, and restore the missing features.

Sometimes the easiest way to do this is to back up the specific template file that doesn’t work, and then copy in the version from responsive_classic (or template_default), and verify the operation of your plugin (just functionally - ignore the aesthetics). Then see how much customization is required to make it look right.




Still have questions? No problem! Just 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.
