Bootstrap in Zen Cart

Developer information on the use of the Bootstrap library

Bootstrap in the Bootstrap Template

Bootstrap template version 3.X is based on Bootstrap 4. You can find the exact version of Bootstrap (major.minor.patch) in use by looking at the file includes/templates/bootstrap/common/html_header.php, which pulls in the Bootstrap javascript and css.

The Bootstrap template is described in more detail in the storefront documentation on Bootstrap template.

Bootstrap in Zen Cart Admin

Bootstrap has been used in the Zen Cart admin since Zen Cart version 1.5.5. The following chart shows the association between Bootstrap and Zen Cart versions.

Bootstrap Zen Cart

There is work underway to move the Zen Cart admin to Bootstrap 5. You may follow this effort by monitoring this PR.
