Remove Default Sort in WooCommerce and ‘Showing All Results’ Notice

In an e-commerce environment using WooCommerce when there is only a few products to sell, it is cleaner and more intuitive to rid the space of some clutter – such as the ‘Default Sorting‘ options dropdown and the display notice ‘Showing all x results‘.


<?php // <- dont add in the opening tag
//remove display notice - Showing all x results
remove_action( 'woocommerce_before_shop_loop', 'woocommerce_result_count', 20 );
//remove default sorting drop-down from WooCommerce
remove_action( 'woocommerce_before_shop_loop', 'woocommerce_catalog_ordering', 30 );

Add this code in your themes functions.php file and you will have a cleaner simpler  look.

    Hi there,

    didn’t work for me, maybe because it’s a few years later^^

    If anyone is looking for a solution and this doesn’t work; I decided to use custom css to remove the things I didn’t want.

    this worked wonderfully but not on mobile. which is strange because it goes in the .php file.
