Make SC Commerce a catalogue site, hide selling functions

Many SC Commerce installations are only used to show a product range, with no need for cart, checkout, shipping or payments. These sites are intended to be a catalogue, rather than a shop. The snippets below remove the add-to-cart buttons and simplify the back end to hide unused menu items and tabs. The text on the “Add to cart” button on the category pages becomes “Read more”.

The code example only leaves Settings and Status as admin menu items, and General and Products as settings tabs. You can edit the snippet to show or hide others.
