custom-header-image-1By default Zen Cart uses a blue banner in the header, but this image can easily be replaced with a custom image or banner for your webshop. 

In this tutorial we will guide you in changing your header image in zen cart, so you can customize your e-commerce website. 

Upload Your Header Image:

  1. Using FTP or File Manager upload your new header image to the folder location:
    /includes/templates/NAME OF YOUR TEMPLATE/images/  

    The 'NAME OF YOUR TEMPLATE' folder should be replaced with the actual name of your template's folder.

    Here is a link to an article that explains the directories in more detail.


Update Your stylesheet.css:

  1. Now using FTP or File Manager, locate the stylesheet.css, it should be located in this folder:
  2. Edit the the stylesheet.css file and locate the following lines, the existing name of the header image is displayed in bold:

    background-image: url(../images/header_bg.jpg);
    background-repeat: repeat-x;
    background-color: #ffffff;

  3. Replace the header_bg.jpg with the name of your new header image. 
    For example, the code should look similar to this after updating, the new name of the header image displays in bold:

    background-image: url(../images/custom-header-image.jpg);
    background-repeat: repeat-x;
    background-color: #ffffff;

    Save the changes you have made.
