  Configuration My Store Display Cart After Adding Product Display the shopping cart after adding a product (or return back to their origin) Choices are true or false. I prefer always to show the cart afterwards but it is not uncommon for a cart owner to request the other. This is a hard to find option so good to remember this one! default ZC true
  Configuration My Store Show Category Counts Count recursively how many products are in each category TURN IT OFF. It adds load time and looks trashy to me. Only shows in the categories sidebox in parentheses. default ZC true
  Configuration My Store Show Category Counts - Admin Show Category Counts in Admin? Best left on so you can see if you have products in the categories. default ZC true
  Configuration My Store Show if version update available Automatically check to see if a new version of Zen Cart is available. Enabling this can sometimes slow down the loading of Admin pages. (Displayed on main Index page after login, and Server Info page.) I prefer this turned on so that it's easy to see if you need to check the version being used. default ZC true
  Configuration My Store Server Uptime Displaying Server uptime can cause entries in error logs on some servers. (true = Display, false = don't display) Never run into this as a problem but neither do we see the server error logs normally. default ZC true
  Configuration Images Calculate Image Size Calculate the size of images? This allows the cart to shrink images proportionally down to your desired width and/or height in all places except products and categories. Turn this off and sidebox items will be scaled to the exact size of the small image 80 x 100 unproportionally. default ZC true
  Configuration Images Image Required Enable to display broken images. Good for development. Of course, broken images only display in certain browsers. In other browsers, they just disappear. But if you turn this to false, no image will be inserted into the html. So not only will it be not visible in any browser, the image name which can be used a keyword will not be available for search. default ZC true
  Configuration Customer Details Company Display company field during account creation and with account information Turn off unless you have a really good business related reason. Reduce the number of boxes required on the create account form.
default ZC true
  Configuration Customer Details Address Line 2 Address Line 2
Display address line 2 field during account creation and with account information
Your choice - folks are used to seeing a 2nd line and sometimes it is required for international addresses.
default ZC true
  Configuration Customer Details State State
Display state field during account creation and with account information
This displays a blank but requires an abbreviation to match what's in the database. If you turn on the drop down instead, there's less likelyhood of mistakes.
default ZC true
