WP eCommerce
[resolved] Showcase - No Add To Cart (20 posts)

    Hello,

    I have been asked by a client to quote for a site that will showcase all their products. For some unknown reason, they do not want "add to cart" functionality for another year but want to be able to "enable it" without any majors changes/updates to the site at that time.

    For this reason I suggested putting all the "add to cart" functionality in place now but to have the site in "Showcase" mode like you can with Zen Cart, Opencart etc.

    Is this possible with WP e-Commerce?

    Yes, you can just remove the add to cart button, also worth looking at this plugin http://a3rev.com/shop/catalog-visibilty-and-email-inquiry/ which is useful for customers to send their information, also comes with an easy option to turn off the add to cart button

    The plugin mentioned by nicknack looks very useful, email enquiry button is a great addition but if you just want not add to cart button though that is a simple setting. You go to Settings/Store/Presentation Tab and check "Hide "Add to cart" button:"

    Store URL: http://www.angeltalkproductions.com/juicycle/products-page/
    WordPress version:3.6.1
    WP e-Commerce version: 3.8.12.1
    Gold Cart version: no
    Theme:twenty-twelve

    I did this: standard routine : install, configure, update, revise, et.al.

    I expected WP e-Commerce to do this: display as expected

    Instead it did this: the issue is the "purchase button" graphic is missing.. on all the products/. does not matter if 'add to cart' or otherwise is enabled. the page is just goofie lookin' ... thanks !

    If you look in the site via FTP you will see a folder that is left over from the old install. It needs to be deleted as it is not needed and has files that interfere.
    or you could just rename it if you are worried about deleting
    The folder is wp-content/plugins/wp-e-commerce/themes

    have you copied any WP e-Commerce theme files to the twenty twelve directory? In you header.php file it is loading this
    site_name_removed.com/juicycle/wp-content/themes/twentytwelve/wpsc-iShop.css?ver=3.8.12.1.55f8cfa0d7

    wpsc-iShop.css should not be loaded and should not exist. Your site is looking for the buy button graphic in the old theme folder, which is why I asked about them.
    It is looking here
    site_name_removed.com/juicycle/wp-content/plugins/wp-e-commerce/themes/iShop/images/buy_button.gif

    good luck. do not remove the wp-content/themes folder that is the main WordPress themes folder. If you still need help let me know. I could take a look for you.

    That css link got into the header some how, which makes me think you have some old files somewhere. There is a "Move Template files" button on Settings/Store/Presentation tab, might you have clicked that?

    I just remembered where those theme files are! They are in a weird spot, it has given me and many others trouble before and I forgot.
    Look in "wp-content/uploads/wpsc folder". You should find a folder named "themes" there. Move everything out of that to somewhere say on your computer.

    yes . clikked 'move template files' button a few times in the past. . it seemed to do 'something' way back when ...
    ok. renamed 'themes' and the formatting (fonts, etc) got skewed. . . there's another folder named 'theme backup' . . with 'wpsc-iShop.css' file . . renamed that folder . . put back 'themes' . . the 'purchase' button still has the 'broken' pic, but there is 'add ... cart' in the middle. ... ok for now.

    If you want me to take a look get in touch via email. You can do it via my contact form http://gasolicious.com/contact/
    I would need Admin login and FTP
    You are pushing things coming from a really old version to the latest. There have ben may database changes along the way. Those have been fine if you step up through the various versions but probably have issues if you leap from really old to current. I recall more than one point along the way in the past where a 2 step old version to newer version to current upgrade was required.

    If you only have 9 products I would be inclined to delete them. Delete WP e-Commerce. Delete that themes folder from uploads/wpsc.
    Then re-install WP e-Commerce and add the products again.

    well not exactly soliciting. He is having complex issues which we have not been able to resolve properly over quite a few posts so I wanted to take a look at the situation first hand. I was going to help him for free, just did not want him to post logins on aboard

    Nevertheless, there are many people who are not so ethical and you have tried to get the OP to contact you twice in this topic. Please do not do that. If the OP needs to contact you directly with login details, allow him/her to ask.
