Why would I want to Hide Items in my Catalog?
Hiding items allows you to temporarily prevent items from appearing anywhere in the catalog (in any filter).
You may have items that are temporarily unavailable, and you can hide them until you wish to display them again.
This article will explain how to Hide and Unhide items.
How to Hide Items
You can hide items manually or in bulk.
To hide manually go to Items -> Manage Catalog. click on the recycle bin icon.
To Hide Items automatically:
When uploading an items file, include the column with the heading Hide In Catalog with the values 0/1 or True/False.
"True" or "1" will hide the item.
No value, "False", or "0" will not hide the item.
If you have already uploaded all your items and you want to re-upload just the HideInCatalog property, then export your items file, add the column and fill in values, and then re-import the file.
For more detailed instructions on how to do this see the article: Import/Export Products
How to Restore Hidden Items
Go to Items -> Manage Catalog and click on the Recycle bin.
Click Restore for the items you wish to restore.
Alternatively, to do so in bulk, modify the value of the Hide in Catalog property in the items file to "0" or "False"
Make sure to export the items file, modify the Hide In Catalog, and then re-upload.
