    Is there an option to remove the ECommerce menu from Sitefinity 4.2? I do not want clients to think it is part of the standard license. It should only be an available option if the license supports it or maybe a trial license.

    Goto   Administration ->  Backend Pages  
    Then in the pull down "Action"  for the eCommerce page,  un-select "Show in Navigation".   Hit refresh and it should be gone.
    regards.

    I know I can remove it that way, but this is an extra step that I have to go through with each install.

    Hello John,

    The other option is after creating the project and before initializing it, add one of the following SystemConfig.config in the ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <systemConfig xmlns:config="urn:telerik:sitefinity:configuration" xmlns:type="urn:telerik:sitefinity:configuration:type">
        <applicationModules>
            <add name="Catalog" startupType="Disabled" />
            <add name="Orders" startupType="Disabled" />
            <add name="Shipping" startupType="Disabled" />
        </applicationModules>
    </systemConfig>

    or:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <systemConfig xmlns:config="urn:telerik:sitefinity:configuration" xmlns:type="urn:telerik:sitefinity:configuration:type">
        <applicationModules>
            <remove name="Catalog" />
            <remove name="Orders" />
            <remove name="Shipping" />
        </applicationModules>
    </systemConfig>

    This will prevent installing the Ecommerce modules.

    Also you could add the SystemConfig.config in the _EmptyProject located in the Sitefinity.exe folder. This is a template for creating new sites. It is a temporary for the current version of Sitefinity and is replaced after each Sitefinity Project Manager upgrade.

    Hi,

    I installed 4.2 earlier today. Does that mean the Ecommerce module got installed for me, adding unneeded extra clutter? I have troubles understanding why the Ecommerce module isn't opt in. I would guess that most users here do NOT need it, so it'd make sense to disable it by default.

    The same goes for many other modules. I mean, I just started a simple project, and I currently need 54 project references. I don't need many of them (Analytics, Facebook, Twitter...), but if the concerned assemblies aren't included, this results in blocking exceptions. With each Sitefinity upgrade, the reference list keeps growing.

    End of rant.

    By the way, could the config change you suggested improve performances in any way, if the pages have already been hidden following what Stevo said?

    Thanks.

    Hello Thomas,

    Please check the following page:
    http://www.sitefinity.com/purchase/license-comparison.aspx

    The Ecommerce functionality is enabled or disabled depending on your license type. Even if you do not hava license for the Ecommerce, the functionality is still in the assemblies we distribute, but it is locked. It gets automatically unlocked if you upgrade to a license which allows it.
