Title: How to easily hide products from unpublished categories?
Post by: marvays on July 08, 2020, 16:03:18 pm
I simply need to set the products in the unpublished category not to be seen. Is it possible to modify it in the code?

I have a copy of the eshop and we are locating it for a new country. I just need to turn off categories and hide all products from google and users. Then we always edit products from one category, then publish them and the products will be displayed and sold. Because there are several thousand products, I do not want to publish them directly in detail one piece at a time.

Disable "Show also products, which are not in at least one published category" option in VirtueMart Configuration under Shopfront tab.

I wonder if this is template dependent.

Tested using VirtueMart 3.8.4 10335 with default VM templates and turning off "Show also products, which are not in at least one published category" does remove products in an unpublished category from front end display.
