Zen Cart Admin

  
  Configuration My Store Store Name The name of my store Displayed in varying places such as emails, inserted during set up default ZC  
  Configuration My Store Zone The zone my store is located in state or province, inserted during setup default ZC  
  Configuration My Store cURL Proxy Status   removed in 1.5    
  Configuration My Store cURL Proxy Address   removed in 1.5, but the only time I've ever seen it used in on Godaddy.    
  Configuration My Store Telephone-Customer Service Enter a telephone number for customers to reach your Customer Service department. This number may be sent as part of payment transaction details. New to 1.5. Not actually being used by anything in default zc or by any payment modules yet that I know of. Could be used for displaying on the contact page or in header if template is changed. default ZC  
  Configuration Minimum Values Explanation These refer mainly to forms, filling the text boxes with the minimum required characters to create an account, credit card input and other miscellaneous minimums. Note: if you put 2 characters for the state/province it will apply to nations that don't have states and confuse the international customers. Shipping rates only depend on zip codes but taxes depend on states in the US. Making something a 0 means it then is no longer required field on the account forms. default ZC  
  Configuration Maximum Values Explanation Maximums control the number in various lists, search results, some lengths of input such as record company name, and probably most importantly one setting to control the number of products in a category product listing.   default ZC  
  Configuration Customer Details Email Salutation Display salutation choice during account creation and with account information used on create account form and then in emails. For your customer's sake, turn it off. Too easy to miss on the create account form. default ZC  
  Configuration Customer Details Date of Birth Display date of birth field during account creation and with account information
NOTE: Set Minimum Value Date of Birth to blank for not required
Set Minimum Value Date of Birth > 0 to require
Though you may be tempted to do this, think about it long and hard. Zen Cart requires it's entry so specifically that your customer is going to stumble on it. If you have adult products, of course use it but I never recommend it otherwise. default ZC  
  Configuration Product Listing Display Product Listing Default Sort Order   NOTE: Leave Blank for Product Sort Order. Sort the Product Listing in the order you wish for the default display to start in to get the sort order setting. Example: 2a

Say for example you have put in the model number as 1 and you want to sort on that column. Enter 1a to sort.
