When you open the plugin settings panel in YITH > Catalog Mode, you will see the following view in tabs.

In the first tab, Settings, you’ll have different sections divided in steps.

Step 1 – Set your users rules

Let’s see the first one, Step 1 – Set your users rules with options that you can enable here.

  • Enable Catalog Mode for: choose here whether enabling the catalog mode options for all users or just for guests.
  • Additional geolocation filter: enable this option if you want to apply the catalog mode options only to users from specific countries, that you will be able to set in the option below:
    • Enable or disable Catalog Mode settings to users from specific countries: here you can choose whether to Enable or Disable the catalog mode for All users or guest users and select countries.
      For example, if you want to make the catalog mode option for everyone except for customers from Italy who can purchase products, choose Disable catalog mode for All users from Italy.
  • Catalog mode for administrators: enable this option if you want to include also the store administrators in the settings and prevent them also from purchasing products if the catalog mode is enabled for everyone.
  • Hide review tab for guest users: if enabled this option will let you hide the Reviews tab on the product page to guest users. So, only logged-in users will be able to read product reviews, whether they can purchase the product (as set to catalog mode) or not.

 

Step 2 – Set your catalog mode options

  • Disable shop: use this option to hide the “Cart” page, “Checkout” page and all the “Add to Cart” buttons in the shop in one click. If you prefer keeping the price anyway and manage the visibility of the Add to Cart button separately, keep this option disabled.
  • “Add to Cart” settings in Catalog Mode: choose whether to hide or to show the “Add to Cart” button on all pages/Shop page/Product page and to apply these options to all products or only to selected products set up in the exclusion list (please, refer to this page for Exclusion list settings).

    For example, if you Hide the Add to Cart only on the Shop page, your users will be able to purchase the products, but they have to visit the product page to see the Cart button.
    Please, consider that if the below option for Price settings is set to hide price, also the Add to Cart button will be hidden, regardless of what you’ve set here.
  • Hide product variations: switch this to ON if you want to hide product variations from the Shop page as shown by WooCommerce (Select options link) or any other plugin that allows you to show variations.
  • In product pages, replace “add to cart” with: here you can choose whether to simply hide the Add to cart button or replace it with one custom button of your choice on the product page. Please, refer to this page to see how to create your customized call-to-action button.
  • In shop pages, replace “add to cart” with: same option as above, but it refers to the Shop page. So, you can have different call-to-action buttons on the Product and Shop page.
  • Price settings in Catalog Mode: choose to hide or to show product prices and whether to apply these to all products or only to the exclusion list.
    Note: if you hide the price, “add to cart” will be hidden too (regardless of the Add to Cart behavior set above).
  • Where hidden, replace price with: choose whether to replace the price with one of the custom buttons you’ve set up or show nothing.

Disable shop

If you want to hide Cart and Checkout pages and all the Add to Cart buttons in your shop, go to YITH > Catalog Mode > Settings > Step 2: Set your Catalog Mode options and enable the option Disable shop.

Disable shop option

Moreover, you might need to disable the shop and the possibility to place orders at specific times of some days and/or on specific dates. In this case, you will only need to enable the options Disable the shop during specific time ranges and/or Disable shop during specific dates.

These two options are independent, so you can freely use them according to your needs. Yet, when creating rules both for time ranges and dates, please consider the plugin checks the rules created for time range first, then rules created for dates.

Disable the shop during specific time ranges

After enabling the option, you will be able to start creating your rules through the entry Disable shop during this time range.

How to disable shop on specific time ranges

Here, you can specify unlimited time ranges for every day of the week. Click on Add rule for every new rule you want to configure. For example, in the settings above, we have created a rule to disable the shop from 12 to 24 on Saturday and one from 00 to 24 on Sunday. In this way, the shop will be disabled from Saturday at 12 to Sunday at 24.

Please note: if the start time is later than the end time (for example, from 8 pm to 8 am on Saturday), the rule will end on the next day, therefore, at 8 am on Sunday. Rules will apply based on the timezone set in your installation.

Disable shop during specific dates

After enabling the option, you will be able to start creating your rules through the entry Disable shop during this date range.

How to disable shop on specific dates

Here, you can create unlimited date rules by specifying a start and end date for every rule added through the button Add rule. As per the example above, the shop has been disabled from December 24 to January 10.
