Zen Cart Admin

  
  Admin Access Management Admin Profiles Admin Profiles The only profile that is default is the superuser that is allowed to see everything and alter profiles. When you create a new profile, you will get to choose everything the new profile allows depending on what you want them to have access to.   default ZC  
  Admin Access Management Admin Users Admin Users Add, edit and delete users - change profiles, change passwords, etc.   default ZC  
  Admin Access Management Admin Page Registration Admin Page Registration This is hard to use unless you have intimate knowledge of the mod you are trying to get to show up in admin. More on that here: http://www.zen-cart.com/content.php?327-Adding-a-menu-item-to-the-v1-5-0-admin   default ZC  
  Admin Access Management Admin Activity Logs Admin Activity Logs The Admin Activity Log is a tracking method that records activity in the Admin.
Due to its nature it can become very large, very quickly and does need to be cleaned out from time to time.
Warnings are given at 50,000 records or 60 days, which ever happens first. They show up in yellow at the top of admin and it's the question I answer the most often because cart owners get freaked out!

There's a big difference between 1.3.9h and 1.5x for this. A good part of this explanation comes from 1.5x.
NOTE: For PCI Compliance, you are required to retain admin activity log history for 12 months. You can download the history and then delete it from the database.

  Catalog Categories/Products Categories/Products This is where you add, copy, move and delete categories and products.

Note: to edit the category - look to the right and find the green e button while looking at the category list. Clicking on the category drills down to the next category or to the products.
green e - edit
red x - delete
blue c - copy
purple m - move
blue or black A - attributes controller
light green $ sign - price manager
funny looking black and white or orange and white symbol on the far right - metatags for special category or product
If there is also a picture of a mountain in a box - that means you have image handler installed.
