Contributing to the Project
How can I contribute to the Zen Cart project?
There are many ways you can help the project.
You can answer user questions on the Zen Cart forum.
You can work on fixing bugs or adding features for the next release. The Zen Cart code is stored in Github to make it easy for people to contribute, and the guide to contributing helps new people get started.
You can create a new plugin, or adopt a plugin that has been abandoned. You can read about plugins to get started.
You can make a financial donation to support the project.
The other thing you can do is to gently correct people who say “Zen Cart is dead” or “Zen Cart is obsolete” or “Zen Cart is just osCommerce with templates.” None of these things is true! In fact, Zen Cart is an active project on Github with many unique features. It has a busy support forum and gets new releases every year or so. Best of all, it can be easily extended to meet your custom needs. No platform is ideal for everyone, but for many use cases, Zen Cart is an excellent fit.
In your post, please include your Zen Cart and PHP versions, and a link to your site.
