Hi all, I recently have had clients who are not yet ready for full fledged E-Commerce but need instead the functionality without the checkout process, i.e. a ‘catalog’ mode. What’s the best approach, is it simply a case of using a portfolio theme to achieve this, or using E-Commerce themes and disabling the checkout feature?

Granted it would be better to use an E-Commerce theme without the checkout if the client has real plans to upgrade in the near future, but for clients who simply want to display their products maybe the portfolio themes will do? If it’s the latter case there are so much more Portfolio templates than E-Commerce on TF, my job would be heck of a lot easier!
