This is an old revision of the document!
One of our clients wanted to start their website as a catalog/inventory site and move towards enabling the site as a full ecommerce site at a later date. Here is what we did and I thought it would be great to share the simple things we did.
Firstly we disabled the following modules from the backend. 1. Checkout 2. Shipping 3. Review
Then we commented the following lines:
list.phtml <button class=”form-button” onclick=”setLocation(’<?php echo $this→getAddToCartUrl($_product) ?>’)”><span><?php echo $this→__(’Add to Cart’) ?></span></button>
view.phtml <?php echo $this→getChildHtml(’addtocart’) ?>
