ClustrMaps on ZenCart

ClustrMaps HTML installation instructions for ZenCart users

Thanks to enthusiastic user Andrew Moore for this tip:

PHASE I: Download and install the ClustrMap Sidebox mod for ZenCart.

  1. Download the mod from http://www.zen-cart.com/index.php?main_page=product_contrib_info&products_id=1236
  2. Unzip all the files to a local folder.
  3. FTP all the files in folders named ‘custom’ to your corresponding custom folders on your ZenCart site.
  4. Switch on the ‘ClustrMap’ sidebox using Admin->Tools->Layout Box Controller.

PHASE II: Check the ClustrMaps server that returns your thumbnail and the URL registered.

  1. Log in to your ClustrMaps ‘Admin’ page by clicking on the Admin link at the top of any ClustrMaps page, or going directly to: http://www.clustrmaps.com/admin/action.php (use your URL as your username, and the password you have been sent, or the password you changed it to)
  2. Within the section of code locate the part that looks like: <a href="http://www4.clustrmaps.com/counter/maps.php&#8230; Right after the www there is a number. This number is the server number. The www4 in the example shows that this code is using server 4. If the number is different for you, you will need to edit includes\templates\YOUR CUSTOM FOLDER\sideboxes\tpl_clustrmap.php. Find the line that says $server_number=’4′; and change the number 4 for the server number that appears in the "Recommended Code" block for you.
  3. Again within the section of code locate the part that looks like: …?url=http://www.your_website.com. Make sure that the URL shown is identical to the one defined as HTTP_SERVER in your includes/configure.php — remember ClustrMaps is case-sensitive.


  1. Your sidebars must be at least 166px wide. Configure this in ZenCart Admin->Layout Settings.
  2. You can change the Heading of your ClustrMap sidebar by editing includes\languages\english\extra_definitions\YOUR CUSTOM FOLDER\clustrmap.php
  3. The ZenCart discussion thread for this mod is at http://www.zen-cart.com/forum/showthread.php?p=673447
