first of all, I am absolutely new to Magento. I want to put a Magento installation in catalog mode.

Is it possible to disable all add to cart buttons, the cart, and the checkout?

I bought a theme and I don't know where to start.

Read about disabling Mage_Checkout but I don't have a configuration button under "System"

Please anybody help...

Thank you in Advance.

To disable add to cart you just need to return false in isSalable method in the Magento\Catalog\Model\Product class. So, You can write an after plugin for this method. Please follow these steps below to create a small module.




<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="MilanDev_DisableCart" setup_version="1.0.0">
            <module name="Magento_Catalog"/>


<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Magento\Catalog\Model\Product">
        <plugin disabled="false" name="MilanDev_DisableCart_Plugin_Magento_Catalog_Model_Product" sortOrder="10" type="MilanDev\DisableCart\Plugin\Magento\Catalog\Model\Product"/>


namespace MilanDev\DisableCart\Plugin\Magento\Catalog\Model;

class Product

    public function afterIsSalable(
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $subject,
    ) {
        return false;
  • Thank you, i created all the Files and folders. How do i activate the Module? Sorry for the lack of knowledge. Do i have to do this via ssh? Thank you for your help.

  • go to magento root folder using comand line and run the following command: php bin/magento module:enable MilanDev_DisableCart -c && php bin/magento setup:upgrade && php bin/magento setup:di:compile && php bin/magento cache:flush Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 8:27
