  • The aim and purpose of zen button construction kit 2.1 is to automatically generate all Zen-Cart shop buttons in one go by utilizing a button text file and button templates, for several languages if necessary.

Hint: this action does NOT output your buttons, but saves the settings you made in a file that you can load again later so you can pick up and continue working with them. Use the button 'create buttons' to actually output your button set.
Hint: use this drop down to check if the selected font supports a language you want to output. If the preview shows no or wrong text for your language, please choose another font.
Hint: the standard image format used by Zen-Cart is GIF. If you want to use something else, you will have to edit the shop file 'includes/languages/english/button_names.php'.
Hint: the 'hue' and 'saturation' values only have an effect on color buttons. The slider 'brightness' affects any button type.
Hint: If you want to create buttons in languages with special non-Latin UTF-8 characters like Russian, Bulgarian, Greek etc, please choose a basic system font, e.g. Arial, Tahoma or Verdana. For Chinese you will have to use the font 'Heiti'.
Hint: this value defines the distance between the text/icon and the left and right button end caps.
Hint: use this to correctly position the text on the button. This is for fine tuning purposes.
Hint: use the value to correctly position the icon on the buttons. It influences the vertical alignment.
Hint: this value defines the distance between the icon and the text.
