I want to enable/disable New/Featured/Special/Upcoming Products sections

Zen Cart Centerbox enable / disable

There is a “New Products for [insert month]” section on several pages, including Home Page, New-Products page, All-Products Page, (empty)Shopping Cart page, etc. These sections are called “centerboxes”.

There are several “sets” of settings for the Centerboxes.

When you go to Admin > Configuration > Index Listing, you will see options like:

  • Show New Products on Main Page
  • Show Featured Products on Main Page
  • Show Special Products on Main Page
  • Show Upcoming Products on Main Page
    • Note: the values you set are the Sort Order of the Centerboxes
    • Turn OFF by setting to 0 all of the ones you do NOT want to see displayed

The same is true on other similar configuration menus under Admin > Configuration:

For setting up the Centerboxes of the Empty Shopping Cart, use the settings on the Admin > Configuration > Stock, you will see the settings for:

  • Show New Products on Main Page
  • Show Featured Products on Main Page
  • Show Special Products on Main Page
  • Show Upcoming Products on Main Page

Still have questions? No problem! Just head over to the Zen Cart support forum and ask there.
In your post, please include your Zen Cart and PHP versions, and a link to your site.
