ahem, I emailed but will also post this here. For those of us who are Zen Cart developers/designer, we would like to enter the contest. However, there is no way to upload file to the zen cart section because it hasn’t been created yet. HINT< HINT !
Try again now, it should be fixed.

Yeah, fixed.

Love it or hate it I have loads of clients using Zen Cart and I will be the first customer if templates become available. Great!

I’m wondering: Do Zencart templates still use tables? Or have you e-commerce expert coders make it somehow work with modern code?

Zen Cart seems to have a very simple structure. Same to OsCommerce :/

Had a look at some of the showcase sites listed on Zencart it does seem to show a mixture of tables and divs. http://www.zen-cart.com/showcase.php

Seems to be the main wrapper and columns that use tables, then divs nested inside. It might be possible to replace these wrappers with divs but I have not tested this.

You can replace the tables, they are all defined in the template files. I personally think that the zen-cart template system is a bit of a mess, I prefer the drupal way. :grin:

Since there are such a large number of searches for Zen Cart templates, it only makes sense to try and fill the need. Obviously some people are comfortable with an Old School, outdated, dinosaur.

I just want to know the standard is required before give more effort to customize this out-of-date code. How high is the standard compare to Template Monter’s Zen Cart ?

I would agree on certain issues with zencart like HTML tables, installation process and rigid structure in general. Giving color option is also not straight task.
