Enhance the Dynamic Theme
Product Layout - There is an alternate product template for this theme which eliminates the add to cart portion of the product information from the category pages, only including that information on the product more information pages. To use this option you can go to Products > Edit Product Layout, and change the product template for all products from the Dynamic-Product.sst template to the Dynamic-ProductCustom.sst product template.
Multi-Add-To-Cart Template - You can download the Multi-Add-To-Cart Dynamic Template version 11 sp2 ZIP File to get ready-made page and product templates that create a single add to cart form to allow customers to add many products to the cart at once. To add this in other templates or your own custom template you can refer to the Creating A Multi-Product [Add To Cart] Button help page in the ShopSite Custom Template Cookbook.
