YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode


YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode is one of our most appealing plugins for WordPress and WooCommerce users who need to switch their WooCommerce site into an online catalogue for some time. Reasons for this switch may be a thousand, but most common ones are concerned with the need of users to perform maintenance actions in their warehouse without putting their site offline. Is it ever happened to you to take inventory and have to put your WooCommerce shop down? How many potential customers lost! A catalogue gives you the opportunity to leave your WooCommerce products online and to let your customers contact you anyway for whatever question they might have. This increases customers’ loyalty and you do not lose visibility online.

Features of YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode:

  • Enable/disable YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode from option panel
  • Choose if admin sees the store as catalog (when set) Mode settings for administrators also
  • Hide „Add to Cart” button in WooCommerce product detail page
  • Hide „Add to Cart” button in the other pages of the site (catalog, shop etc.)
  • Hide WooCommerce „Cart” and „Checkout” pages and any reference to them

Is it compatible with all WordPress themes?

Compatibility with all themes is impossible, because they are too many, but generally if themes are developed according to WordPress and WooCommerce guidelines, YITH plugins are compatible with them.
Yet, we can grant compatibility with themes developed by YIThemes, because they are constantly updated and tested with our plugins. Sometimes, especially when new versions are released, it might only require some time for them to be all updated, but you can be sure that they will be tested and will be working in a few days.

How can I get support if my WooCommerce plugin is not working?

If you have problems with our plugins or something is not working as it should, first follow this preliminary steps:

  • Test the plugin with a WordPress default theme, to be sure that the error is not caused by the theme you are currently using.
  • Deactivate all plugins you are using and check if the problem is still occurring.
  • Ensure that you plugin version, your theme version and your WordPress and WooCommerce version (if required) are updated and that the problem you are experiencing has not already been solved in a later plugin update.

If none of the previous listed actions helps you solve the problem, then, submit a ticket in the forum and describe your problem accurately, specify WordPress and WooCommerce versions you are using and any other information that might help us solve your problem as quickly as possible. Thanks!

How can I get more features for my WooCommerce plugin?

How can I try the full-featured plugin?

What are the main changes in plugin translation?

Recently YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode has been selected to be included in the „translate.wordpress.org” translate programme.
In order to import correctly the plugin strings in the new system, we had to change the text domain form ‚ywctm’ to ‚yith-woocommerce-catalog-mode’.
Once the plugin will be imported in the translate.wordpress.org system, the translations of other languages will be downloaded directly from WordPress, without using any .po and .mo files. Moreover, users will be able to participate in a more direct way to plugin translations, suggesting texts in their languages in the dedicated tab on translate.wordpress.org.
During this transition step, .po and .mo files will be used as always, but in order to be recognized by WordPress, they will need to have a new nomenclature, renaming them in:

Worked Perfectly. I would like it to have left the "more Info" buttons on the shop page, the ones that link to the product detail page, but I needed it only temporarily so no issue. The plugin is easy and simple, takes 3 seconds. 🙂 - Running ------- WordPress 5.1.1 WooCommerce 3.5.8 DIVI 3.22.2 WooCommerce Builder For Divi 2.1.11 Yoast SEO 11.0 The Grid 2.7.1 SVG Support 2.3.15 Ninja Forms 3.4.10

This plugin solved an issue I had. No orders could be fulfilled temporarily due to ill health. I still wanted to show the products (in catalogue mode) but the cart button was removed to allow this. I just added a Woocommerce site notice to inform customers and will disable/uninstall it when it is up and running again. Thank you YITH.
