We used to have Manage stock = NO in:
System - Configuration - Inventory.
We desperately need to put about 20 specific products to show as 'Out of Stock' so I changed Manage stock = YES. Now I'm just worried that the products that have Qty = 0 (we never used to specify quantity before) will not be available on the site?
Here is the big question then:
Can you set products to status 'Out of Stock' even if 'Manage Stock' = NO?
