By default, the public catalog opens a modal when users click on the dynamic course or program links within the catalog. However, there is a way to prevent this default behavior.
How It Works
Navigate to Catalog > Settings > Website Settings to locate the “Hide Course Details Modal” setting.
If Hide Course Details Modal" is set to "yes", and a user clicks on a course link, they will instead be redirected to the Course Page, without any modal opening.
The same applies for setting the "Hide Program Details Modal" as “yes”.
