If the Category Page ticker is enabled for an event, the ticker block appears at the top of the product list. If the Product Page ticker is enabled, the ticker block also appears at the top of the product page (for products that are associated with the category).
Like the Event Widget, the ticker block displays a countdown ticker for open events, with the start and end date for upcoming events. If an event is closed, the ticker block will indicate this (and includes the start and end date, similar to Upcoming events).
By default, products that appear in upcoming or closed events are not available for general sale, and the Add to Cart button does not appear on the product list or product page.
To restore the Add to Cart button for a closed event, the event must be deleted. However, if a product is associated with another category that has no selling restrictions, the Add to Cart button does appear on the product page. Similarly, the ticker block does not appear on the product page if the product is associated with another category that has no selling restrictions.
