hi, i have a similar issue -- i am trying to get my featured product sidebox to display on the right side, but no matter what i do, it won't show. this is what i currently have in my /public_html/includes/templates/12541/sideboxes/tpl_featured.php file. /tpl_featured had to be copied from the default template folder because it did not exist in my modified template (12541).

my website is: http://www.indiediggs.com

$content = "";

$featured_box_counter = 0;

while (!$random_featured_product->EOF) {


$featured_box_price = zen_get_products_display_price($random_featured_product->fields['products_id']);

$content .= '<div class="sideBoxContent centeredContent">';

$content .= '<a href="' . zen_href_link(zen_get_info_page($random_featured_product->fields["products_id"]), 'cPath=' . zen_get_generated_category_path_rev($random_featured_product->fields["master_categories_id"]) . '&products_id=' . $random_featured_product->fields["products_id"]) . '">' . zen_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $random_featured_product->fields['products_image'], $random_featured_product->fields['products_name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT);

$content .= '<br />' . $random_featured_product->fields['products_name'] . '</a>';

$content .= '<div>' . $featured_box_price . '</div>';

$content .= '</div>';




also, how do i change the "manufacturer" section to read "designer"? as seen here -- http://www.templatemonster.com/sampleView.php?type=16

step by step instructions would be much appreciated! it's my first time doing this so i'm quite clueless..


Unfortunately, template monster templates are hard coded in places

which disable certain zencart options...search forums here for

Template Monster.
