APG Products/Entry Fees

In Squarespace: This is a hack to hide the "Quantity" input field in product blocks on a per page basis. Paste this into a code block somewhere above the product block. Set code block to "HTML" and uncheck "Display Source."

<style>
/* Hide quantity fields on this page only */
.product-block .product-quantity-input { display: none; }
</style>
