A major change included in this update was the fact that products being uploaded to Froogle must now include the product condition. Previously condition was not a requirement for products added via your Google Base Feeder account so some of my clients had questions on if the automatic Froogle addon for ZenCart would still function properly.

How To Easily Install ZenCart Design Templates

Installing ZenCart design templates is easy. I ended up installing one tonight and wanted to note the location of some ZenCart templates as well as how easy it is to install the templates. ZenCart provides a great foundation for an ecommerce store which will allow you to customize any way you like.
