Now shoot me if i'm wrong but i believe any templates you make with blue voda can only be used with blue voda. Your best bet would be make a template with dreamweaver or other such programs like this.

Mook is CORRECT.

Blue Voda cannot be used to "make a template" for ZEN or any other cart.
You can find a number of templates for each cart and utility offered by VodaHost here: http://www.vodahosttemplates.com/search.html?category=94
Look toward the bottom for ZEN to see the selection available.

(Keep in mind you will need additional software to "edit" (customize) them, and FrontPage2003 is the most common and suitable means to effect many of the edits you will demand.)

If you have any trouble with the editing/installation process, you can always have the guys at www.template-help.com (http://www.template-help.com) (more expensive) or even a capable someone at www.vodabids.com (http://www.vodabids.com) (less expensive) help you out......

A good overview of Zen templates is:

More info at http://tutorials.zen-cart.com/index.php?category=4

All sort of good addins including templates can be found here:

Try installing one of the templates per the text instructions provided to get the hang of it, they all work pretty much the same way, and you can change templates on the fly right in the ZenCart Admin. Super adaptable Very nice CSS (cascading style sheet) All in one place. You can even have several templates installed at one time and just choose the one you want in the Zen Admin. Nice.
