Hi quick question , does the tracking stock button need to be clicked on to monitor stock levels to prevent overselling ?? and if so is it possible to take the quantity amount that is visible on the website off the product?

For working with themes, here are some tips:

For product page, start with the product.liquid Template, then read the code and include statements to trace through the file until you find the code for quantity.
