Catalog capabilities?

I was wondering how to remove the shopping cart and order status page. I primarily want to use this as a catalog to view products.

Thanks!

    Hello -

    Is there a way to customize the "add to cart" button on the products page or remove it entirely so that people have to go to the individual product's page to buy? I know I can customize where the "add to cart" button points; I'm talking about customizing the words to replace "add to cart" or delete the button entirely without having to re-do it each time the plugin updates.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, Mark. I know how to create a custom template in wp, but I don't know how to do that for the MarketPress plugin's pages and also make sure any customizing doesn't get overwritten when MarketPress upgrades.

    Does anyone know if there's something I can add to functions.php to remove the "add to cart" buttons on the products page (as opposed to the individual product's page)?

    You just put the custom MarketPress theme pages in the same folder as your site's theme (wp-content/themes/somethemeyoursiteuses). This is what we've done on our latest project and it has not had an issues. It will not be overriden for plugin updates.

    In this case you would create a custom page named either mp_store.php or mp_productlist.php This is from Themeing_MarketPress.txt:

    Advanced Themes:

    MarketPress uses custom post types to display it's products. This means that you can use
    the same WP theme templating system you are familiar with. We simply provide a customized
    subset of template functions so you don't have to worry about dealing with post meta. Template
    functions are fully documented and can be found in the /marketpress/template-functions.php file.

    MarketPress searches your current theme folder for template files specific to store pages. If a template file does not exist it loads the theme's page template instead. Just like WP, the
    plugin will search for templates in order of priority from top to bottom. Here are possible
    file names for store templates in order:

    Single Product Page
    mp_product-PRODUCTNAME.php
    mp_product-PRODUCTID.php
    mp_product.php

    Store Page
    mp_store.php

    Cart/Checkout Page
    mp_cart.php

    Order Status Page
    mp_orderstatus.php

    Product List Page
    mp_productlist.php

    Product Category List Page
    mp_category-CATEGORYSLUG.php
    mp_category-CATEGORYID.php
    mp_category.php
    mp_taxonomy.php
    mp_productlist.php

    Product Tag List Page
    mp_tag-TAGSLUG.php
    mp_tag-TAGID.php
    mp_tag.php
    mp_taxonomy.php
    mp_productlist.php
