Okay, okay, I give!! I've gone through the tutorial for Zen Cart, and I cannot figure out how to open the template into an editor. BV,Dreamweaver of Front Page.
I'm trying Zen Cart to see if it is the right shopping cart for me.

Youd open it in dreamweaver or front page, but.. you need the whole template folder, including the css files etc.

Everything installed in my root folder. How can I access it from the editor?

Well, you can shut alot of things off in the admin panel like some of the ads, and what you want to display where. Theres help files on the zen cart site to explain exactly how to alter or edit templates themselves. This usually requires you to download those folders, update them and reup them. You will also want to upload a copy of you modifications in all areas, so that when u update you can redo the mods by copying the files over. Its been awhile since i went and played in this cart.. so you will have to spend some time reading their forum and their wikis and tutorials to get the basics down.

Thanks Karen,
If worse comes to worst, I can uninstall and reinstall if I mess things up.
