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 and set the option below:
    • “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 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 behaviour 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.
