Thanks, but no transactions will occur
Thanks for your response. No worries as this store is "for display only" since it is a high-end jewelry client that wants to "haggle" prices rather than post what in the jewelry biz is always a "starting-point" price (at least at this end of the market).
As long as the store doesn't break by me editing those lines, great. I actually would love to get rid of the "add to cart" button too since this is more of a "gallery" than a store, but it needs to be sortable and searchable by category and I don't know of an actual gallery solution that allows this. The open-source Zen-Cart allows you to set up a store as a gallery-only store, but it is so obtuse to customize the code & appearance (even with their huge manual) that I prefer the look and ease of your solution.
