    I found another method that worked fairly well. Create a category. Make it Red (not shown) create a subcategory, make it green (shown) put your product in there. Turn the main category on once to locate the url, then turn it off. Works like a charm for me.

    This works great for my situation other then I need to create the includes/modules/pages/product_info/main_template_vars_product_type.php file there is basically a blank template but I am not sure how to create the file. I am using a hidden category which in my case is category 21 and have it restricted to Document - Product. I want to turn off the Prev/Next buttons at the top so the customer whom I give the direct link to can only view that specific product then add to cart but not be able to see other products in that category . I'm using ZenCart Ver 1.5.5 Any examples would be most appreciated.
