Remove Additional Information Tab WooCommerce Tutorial

How to remove additional information tab WooCommerce

WooCommerce additional information tab often needs to be removed, because it does not reflect site owner’s needs and desires. The tab cannot be edited directly and will only show if the product has weight, dimensions or attributes. There is no way to edit this tab directly in the what you see is what you get way, so it’s often needed to just delete or hide this tab.

There are 2 ways of doing this we recommend – CSS and PHP.

  2. Go to wp-content folder of the needed WordPress install, then to themes folder, and open the functions.php of the theme you use on your site (the active one)
  3. At the bottom insert the following code and save the changes to the file on your server

The code:

function woo_remove_product_tabs( $tabs ) {
