I am still trying to sort out this issue but no response yet.
I have tried Managing inventory and other things that I found here but out of stock items still show up in the site search, though not in the store search - I need them to be hidden everywhere..
here was my full original question - please help
I have Woocommerce added to the theme I am using - Hueman
So far things are working fine minus a couple issues.
I have figured out how to hide products once they are sold out.
But when I test a search in the over all site, not just the store.. these out of stock products show in the search results - just like regular posts.
I do want products in stock to show up in any search, but the out of stock I prefer to be unseen any where.
