Hide the Description and Reviews Tabs in WooCommerce Products

WooCommerce products by default show  ‘description‘ and ‘reviews‘ tabs below the product on a WordPress product page, you can hide these tabs from view as well as a third tab ‘additional information‘ with a snippet of code that goes in your themes functions.php file



As well as remove the tabs you can rename the heading in the tabs with this snippet

You can also re-order the tabs with this snippet

If the tabs are not used on some products you may get a PHP error about undefined index on title or call back, in this case it is best to wrap the tabs in an isset function to check they are being used.

Here is a guide on adding extra tabs.

    add_filter( ‘woocommerce_product_tabs’, ‘woo_delete_tabs’, 98 );

    function woo_delete_tabs( $tabs ) {

    I can confirm that as of today (1/21/2019) with WP 5.03 cutting and pasting the above as follows:

    add_filter( ‘woocommerce_product_tabs’, ‘woo_remove_product_tabs’, 98 );

    function woo_remove_product_tabs( $tabs ) {

    unset( $tabs[‘description’] ); // Remove the description tab
    unset( $tabs[‘reviews’] ); // Remove the reviews tab
    unset( $tabs[‘additional_information’] ); // Remove the additional information tab

    return $tabs;


    works just fine. I placed it as the very first lines of code and now I do not see the descriptions nor reviews tabs…because I am just launching and have zero feedback yet (positive or negative). I did learn you will have to re-do this everything Woo commerce is upgraded.

    Thank you very much to whoever left this code. Much appreciated.

    If I want to remove the heading of the tab

    add_filter(‘woocommerce_product_description_heading’, ‘__return_empty_string’);

    add_filter(‘woocommerce_product_additional_information_heading’, ‘__return_empty_string’);

    is this working

    But I can’t remove the heading of “Reviews”
    Not working = add_filter(‘woocommerce_product_reviews_heading’, ‘__return_empty_string’);

    Any suggestions?

    I would like it exactly the other way around, diplay on desktop, hide on mobile / tablet portait. Any one?

    Best regards,

    I would like to hide product description for my store but show it to my mobile site! Is there a way?

      You can use css and target the desktop screen size e.g
      @media only screen and (min-width: 768px) { …}
