Disable or remove certain UI pieces

I had people asking how to disable some UI pieces in some pages. Here are some detail questions and my answers.

1) how do I disable the action buttons e.g. "Ask a Question", "Update Alert", "Tell a Friend" in product detail page?

In web\store\ProductAction.aspx, find <asp:ImageButton id="btnAskQuestion", <asp:ImageButton id="btnUpdateAlert", <asp:ImageButton id="btnTellFriend" and put visible="false" inside the tag.

2) Remove register link

In web\controls\blocks\LoginMenu.ascx, remove line <li><a href="<%=SiteNavigation.RegisterPage %>">Register</a></li>.

In web\controls\core\Login.ascx, remove these lines.

<td class="logincell">

    <asp:Button id="btnRegister" runat="server" text="Create New Account" />

In web\controls\core\Login.ascx.cs, remove these lines.

btnRegister.OnClientClick = string.Format("'{0}{1}', '_self'); return false;",

    SiteNavigation.RegisterPage, string.IsNullOrEmpty(returnUrl) ? "" : "?ReturnUrl=" + returnUrl);

3) Remove customer Reviews in product detail page

In web\store\Product.aspx, remove those lines


    <td colspan="2">
         <dsc:ProductReviews id="prvReview" runat="server" />

In web\store\Product.aspx.cs, remove those lines

prvReview.Product = product;

4) Remove Redeem Gift Certificate in shopping cart page

In web\store\Cart.aspx, find <asp:Panel id="pnlGiftCertificate" runat="server"> and put visible="false" inside the tag.


New features in V2.4

Visitor source capture has been improved in V2.4. If you use Google Analytics to track your site trafic, this matches with GA to capture visitor source without any configuration. When visitor registers or places order, the source will be automatically recorded. You can then run report tool to show metrics.
