WooCommerce Remove Product Description From Single Product Page — January 24, 2014

WooCommerce Remove Product Description From Single Product Page

WooCommerce Remove Product Descriptions

There are some cases where you would like to have you WooCommerce products not display a description, this tutorial will help you achieve just that.

By default WooCommerce has two description fields, a short description and a long description. The short description is usually an excerpt take from the long description unless you enter your own short description on the product page.

The short description is displayed right next to the image on the product page underneath the title, where as the long description is displayed in a tab at the bottom of the product page.

If you would like to either remove the WooCommerce short description or the long description tab, or both, you can do so by adding the following code to your theme’s functions.php file.

<?php
// remove product description from single product pages
remove_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_excerpt', 20 );
add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_tabs', 'wc_remove_description_tab', 11, 1 );
function wc_remove_description_tab( $tabs ) {
if ( isset( $tabs['description'] ) ) {
unset( $tabs['description'] );
}
}
?>
