Making out of stock still viewable

Recommended Posts

Right now when I mark something as out of stock, it goes inactive and is removed from the site. Is there any way to make it so that the out of stock items stay viewable on the site but get marked as "out of stock"?

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

In Admin ~ Configuration ~ Stock, is Allow Checkout set to True?

Have you tried setting the product as in stock but the quantity to 0?

What did you do to get it to work?

 

In Admin ~ Configuration ~ Stock set the Mark Product Out of Stock to Out of Stock and see if that does not do what you want.

This is ow I have it set up right now:

 

Check stock level: true

Subtract stock: true

Allow checkout: true

 

And made all of the items active, with the appropriate stock numbers.

 

So when they add an item that's out of stock, then look in the cart, it says that it's out of stock (but they can still order it).

 

That's great, however, I would like to make it say weather or not an item is out of stock on the product page, before they add it to their cart.

 

Got any ideas or contributions to make this happen?

This contribution might do what you are looking for.

 

Either that or you could just edit the page to do a stock check and print an appropriate message.
