I am starting a website and intent to only display the products for now. Will only look into the possibility of selling them online in future phase. Is there a way to disable the eCommerce features (My Account, Shopping Cart, Checkout) at the main page?
Also, how do I add in google map pointing to retailer address (I am featuring products from various retailers), for each product featured on my page?February 23, 2012 at 4:00 am #65065
As far as I know there isn’t a way to just disable the ecommerce features directly. You might be better off just not using the WooCommerce plugin until you are ready to sell. For now, you can just create pages for each of the products and embed google maps, video, and anything else you would need to highlight the products.
To add a google map into a page, you will copy the HTML embed code from the google maps page and then paste it into the HTML editing tab for a page (its the tab on the upper right of the text editing window).February 23, 2012 at 5:37 am #65066
Thanks. I want to be able to scroll though the products, give description, rating etc. Wonder if disabling the WooCommerce functionality will mean removal of too many product related features. Will give it a try.February 23, 2012 at 7:10 am #65067
Oh, I can’t turn off the woocommerce, as I would loose other product related functionalities, such as :- product category, sorting and search function, product write-up, review and ratings. I also really like the Product display & scrolling feature at the main page.
I dunno how to find a theme that will work. Someone mentioned Propulsion theme but I think it will give me the same problems. Moreover, I really prefer Abundance’ look and feel. Help!February 23, 2012 at 7:26 am #65068
You can use an extension like: Catalog Visibility Options which was released one week ago.February 23, 2012 at 7:54 am #65069February 29, 2012 at 2:50 pm #65070
I’ve bought the plug-in, and managed to disable the following :- My Account, Check-Out icon (on the main page, upper right corner), by adding the following code via your recommended Quick CSS method (in your Theme Options)
But the webpage still shows a Shopping Cart pic. and the dollar sign (with 0 amount).
I am very sure I have already disabled the Pricing and Purchases option in woocommerce option section. By the way, I am totally new to WordPress and am not a developer. So, I don’t really know how all the codes work. Detailed instruction may be needed, if the customisation is even moderately difficult.February 29, 2012 at 3:17 pm #65071February 29, 2012 at 3:42 pm #65072
Probably I´ll have the same needs as You for a project and would like to ask if you got rid of all commerce related stuff like cart, price, menus and etc. only through the extension spotted here or via css .
I guess if we comment out some templates entries and use some “display: none;” we could get what we need. Am I correct?
I´d love to hear from you :-)

BTW, the solution was
Another issue though, since we are not using the pricing at the moment, how to remove the ‘order by price’ as a sort option on list pages?May 11, 2012 at 7:09 am #65074
