I'm trying to figure out how to stop people placing orders for a couple of weeks so I can catch up and maybe have a day off!

I recommend that you add an announcement bar to explain the temporary closure to potential customers first. It is also a good idea to export your products to a CSV file and set the inventory levels to zero. This will prevent anyone adding items to the cart.

An alternative measure is to hide all the 'Add to Cart' buttons so that products cannot be added to the cart, but if anyone has already added an item to the cart, it will remain there and can be checked out at any time - unless you zero the stock level.

To hide the Add to Cart buttons on Your Squarespace 7.0 site, navigate to one of your products and then open Site Styles.

Scroll down to the PRODUCTS: ADD TO CART BUTTON section and then uncheck Show Button 


Note that this option isn’t available on Squarespace 7.1 so anyone else reading this will need to use Custom CSS to hide the buttons.

I hope this helps.

It looks like the PRODUCTS under Site Styles is no longer there... do you have any idea if there is still a way to hide the button??

If you share link to a product, we can give the code to hide add to cart button

but now can't find the PRODUCTS in the site syles as detailed in your instructions.

You are on v7.1. As @paul2009 mentions in his updated post you need to use CSS to hide as v7.1 doesn't have settings for this effect in Styles.

Add the following to Store Settings > Advanced > Page Header Code Injection for the store page. Please see per-page code injection.


  .ProductItem-details .sqs-add-to-cart-button-wrapper {
    display : none;

Let us know how it goes.

I tried adding the Header Code Injection as described above and it didn't work.

Please post the URL for a page on your site where we can see your issue.

A link to the backend of the your site won’t work for us, i.e. a url that contains /config/.

Please set up a site-wide password, if your site is not public and you've not already done so.

Post the password here.

Adding a site-wide password does not allow anyone to alter your site. It only allows those with the password to see your site.

Please read the site-wide password and how to share a link documentation to understand how they work.

We can then take a look at your issue.

Thank you for the response, but we've decided to go a different route and say "SOLD OUT" .  But what I'd like to really do is change "SOLD OUT" to "Not in Season".  Is that possible?
