I have a client who wants me to replicate a site that I created, but as an introduction to the actual site. The items that will be available for sale on the previous site, he wants to have about 95% of it as un-clickable links that still appear on the page.
He wants folks to be able to access the rest of the content and even download it. This, of course, is so that he can give a sample of what they (hopefully) will go on to purchase as a whole.
I was thinking of just adding an Active column to the database and make the entire site's links inactive, but visible, and then he could select a handful to activate through the admin as he sees fit.
I may have confused or over-explained this, but I think if I could get a point in the right direction I could figure it out.
