YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode
YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode is one of our most appealing plugins for WordPress and WooCommerce users who need to switch their WooCommerce site into an online catalogue for some time. Reasons for this switch may be a thousand, but most common ones are concerned with the need of users to perform maintenance actions in their warehouse without putting their site offline. Is it ever happened to you to take inventory and have to put your WooCommerce shop down? How many potential customers lost! A catalogue gives you the opportunity to leave your WooCommerce products online and to let your customers contact you anyway for whatever question they might have. This increases customers’ loyalty and you do not lose visibility online.

Important: before of all you have to download and activate WooCommerce plugin, which is mandatory for YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode to be working. If WooCommerce plugin is active, you just need to activate the YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode plugin.
Unzip the downloaded zip file.

wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress site.
YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode from Plugins page.
YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode will add a new tab called “Catalog Mode” inside the YIT Plugins menu item. There you are able to configure all plugin settings.
Is it compatible with all WordPress themes?
Compatibility with all themes is impossible, because they are too many, but generally if themes are developed according to WordPress and WooCommerce guidelines, YITH plugins are compatible with them.
Yet, we can grant compatibility with themes developed by YIThemes, because they are constantly updated and tested with our plugins. Sometimes, especially when new versions are released, it might only require some time for them to be all updated, but you can be sure that they will be tested and will be working in a few days.
How can I get support if my WooCommerce plugin is not working?
If you have problems with our plugins or something is not working as it should, first follow this preliminary steps:
Test the plugin with a WordPress default theme, to be sure that the error is not caused by the theme you are currently using.
Deactivate all plugins you are using and check if the problem is still occurring.
Ensure that you plugin version, your theme version and your WordPress and WooCommerce version (if required) are updated and that the problem you are experiencing has not already been solved in a later plugin update.
If none of the previous listed actions helps you solve the problem, then, submit a ticket in the forum and describe your problem accurately, specify WordPress and WooCommerce versions you are using and any other information that might help us solve your problem as quickly as possible. Thanks!

What are the main changes in plugin translation?
Recently YITH WooCommerce Catalog Mode has been selected to be included in the “translate.wordpress.org” translate programme.
In order to import correctly the plugin strings in the new system, we had to change the text domain form ‘ywctm’ to ‘yith-woocommerce-catalog-mode’.
Once the plugin will be imported in the translate.wordpress.org system, the translations of other languages will be downloaded directly from WordPress, without using any .po and .mo files. Moreover, users will be able to participate in a more direct way to plugin translations, suggesting texts in their languages in the dedicated tab on translate.wordpress.org.
During this transition step, .po and .mo files will be used as always, but in order to be recognized by WordPress, they will need to have a new nomenclature, renaming them in:
