Hi,

Might be a silly question.  I really like the features that this software has, however.  Can u use it without the shopping cart.  Such as to build a review website?

or to be able to showcase products from other websites that you do not sell?

I cant seem to be able to switch anything in admin area, So i though I would ask here.  Any help would be appreciated.  Cheers!

Hi Timbor,

I don’t think there is a feature in Magento right now to do that.

However, you can always just modify the template to remove all the Add To Cart button.

Truly yours,

Hi Timbor,

You can mark product as Enabled, but out of stock
This way product will be visible on the front end, but will not have the add to cart button.
You will need to modify templates if you do not want to show links such as: shopping cart and checkout, probably also login, and my account.
