I want to enable/disable some sideboxes

Conditional sidebox display

Controlling Sideboxes in Admin

Sideboxes are narrow pieces of content that are displayed on the left and right side of the screen in the Zen Cart storefront in a desktop view.

Sideboxes display is controlled by Admin > Tools > Layout Boxes Controller.

Controlling Sideboxes in Other Ways

You can turn sideboxes off on a per page basis by modifying your template. See suppressing sidebox display for details.

You can also turn off the left and right columns where sideboxes display.

The number of entries shown in each sidebox is sometimes controlled using settings from Admin > Configuration > Maximum Values.

For example:

  • The number of Special Products displayed is controlled by MAX_RANDOM_SELECT_SPECIALS.
  • The number of Featured Products displayed is controlled by MAX_RANDOM_SELECT_FEATURED_PRODUCTS.
  • The number of Reviews displayed is controlled by MAX_RANDOM_SELECT_REVIEWS.

Still have questions? Use the Search box in the upper right, or try the full list of FAQs. If you can't find it there, 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.

Is there an error or omission on this page? Please post to General Questions on the support forum. Or, if you'd like to open a pull request, just review the guidelines and get started. You can even PR right here.
