By using YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode you can hide price and “Add to cart” button for all products in the shop. Before explaining how to do it, you must know that if the product price gets automatically hidden, the same happens to “Add to cart” button.
In order to hide price and/or “Add to cart” button for all products in the shop you must enable the fields you find in YIT Plugins -> Catalog Mode -> Settings, and highlighted in the following image. (Ignore the first if you are interested in hiding only “Add to cart” button).
When price is hidden, you can insert a different text to show as replacement.
Unlike “Add to cart” button, when you hide price you can’t choose in which pages to apply the action.
Price (and consequently “Add to cart” button) will be removed in all site pages.
By default, settings affect all users: however, you can choose to limit configured rules only to unregistered users or, thanks to geolocation system, to all users who log in to the site from one of specified nations.
If you want to show price and add to cart only to users connected from one of the specified countries, enable “Reverse Selection”.
By default settings are applied to all the products in the shop, however general rules can be changed and customized
By multiple or single products and/or by categories. Read the following page to learn more.
About variable products, it is possible to hide registered variations of a certain product.
By disabling the shop, “Cart” and “Checkout” WooCommerce pages are hidden and no one can have access to them. Furthermore, “Add to cart” button is removed where expected in site pages.
Thanks to the plugin there is the possibility to insert a new tab in Product detail page which includes a contact form that users can use to send their request.
To make this feature available, it is essential that at least one of the following contact plugins is installed and active:
- YITH Contact Form (available with some of YITH themes)
- Contact Form 7
- Gravity Form
After selecting the contact typology and the configurated form, new tab will be insert in each product detail page.
In addition to user’s request, the generated email includes a reference to the related product page. If you want to insert a link to the product, enable “Product Permalink” field that you find option dashboard.
If you are using the WPML translation plugin in order to have a multilingual site,
you can select a different form for each language configured in your site.
If price and/or “Add to cart” button are hidden, you can show a customized button in “Shop” and product details pages.
Select the type of protocol to designate to button link among the following:
- Generic Url – add a URL such as http://google.com
- Email address – ex. mailto:[email protected]; it automatically sends the email to the specified email address (note: a programme associated to this type of protocol, e.g. Outlook, has to be installed in user’s device to let it work correctly).
- Telephone number – ex. +391234567890; when clicked, a telephone call starts to the number specified in the URL.
- Skype contact – ex. skype:usercontact?call; when clicked a Skype call starts to the contact specified in the URL.
If you wish to have a different button setting of the products in the shop, you can do it in the editing page or by using “Custom Button Url List” section.
Click on “Add products” button you find on top of the page to add new configurations to the button. As shown in the image below, button configuration can be specifically applied to one or more products or to all those elements related to a certain category or tag.
Since the button can be differently configured in three provided options, the configuration applied on product will be the most significant and, consecutively, in order of importance:
- settings for product category
- settings for product tag
- settings for single product
Don’t forget to enable “Enable custom button URL override” field before saving configurated settings.
With the plugin you can also manage the product review system. Enable or disable review insertions in “Product Reviews” field of settings dashboard.
Exclusion List includes all products that must not be affected by plugin settings. Exclusions can be managed separately for Add to cart button and for price.
If you want to use this table, firstly you have to specify what you want to hide (“Add to cart”, price or both), then enable the “Exclusion” option and, if want, also enable the “Reverse Exclusion” option. Note: if you hide the price, also “Add to cart” button will be automatically hidden.
You can choose to show price and/or “Add to cart” button for every new product added to the list.
If you enabled “Show ‘Add to cart’ in items of the ‘Exclusion List’ “ option, general settings will be applied to all the products in the shop, except for those inserted in the Exclusion List.
Reverse exclusion list
“Hide “Add to cart” button only in items of the “Exclusion List” (Reverse Exclusion)” option allows to change the concept of exclusion chart use.
Write an alternative text that will be shown instead of the product price. You can change the text per product, per category or per tag. The text will only appear if you have activated the “hide price” option on the items belonging to the text replacing list.
Select the product/category/tag you would like to change. If you select a category/tag all products related will show the custom text.
The configurated general settings in YIT Plugins -> Catalog Mode can be overwritten and customized for each single product. In product configuration page, the plugin adds “Catalog Mode Options” section.
If you want to customize button settings too, don’t forget to enable “Custom button URL override” field in order to apply settings correctly.
The plugin is 100% compatible with YITH WooCommerce Multi Vendor.
The integration allows vendors of the shop to configure catalog functionalities for their own products.
If you enabled both plugins, the first step is to enable their integration from “Add-ons” section of YITH WooCommerce Multi Vendor settings dashboard.
At this point, the Catalog Mode menu will be visible on the left for the vendor as well.
For more details about each specific option listed here, please, refer to this page, but consider that the option only applies to vendor’s products.
On products not owned by administrator, the catalog settings configured by the vendor will apply, unless the admin enables the option Administrator overrides vendors’ settings, in YITH > Catalog Mode > Settings.
In this case, the admin’s settings will override the vendors’ ones.
If you want this to be valid for some vendors only, make sure you click on Do not apply to vendors in the “Vendor Exclusion List” (Exclusion) field based on your preferences in the option below:
This way the admin will be able to exclude the products of one or more vendors from the admin’s settings in YITH > Catalog Mode > Exclusion List > List of vendors:
