WooCommerce: Hide Specific “Additional Information” Tab Attribute @ Single Product

WooCommerce variable products display the list of attributes and their terms in the “Additional Information” tab on the single product page. For example, it will display “Color: red, yellow” and “Size: large, small” if your variable product uses those attribute terms to generate variations.

Yes, you could completely remove the “Additional Information” tab all together, but sometimes you may need to just hide a specific attribute in this table, for whatever reason. Especially when you want to avoid your customers getting confused and abandoning your website.

So, here’s the fix. Enjoy!

Let’s say that I want to hide the “Color” row in the Additional Information tab attribute table. The snippet below gives you a super easy fix to achieve that on a global basis.

PHP Snippet: Hide 1 Attribute Row @ Additional Information Tab’s Attributes Table

Note – I’m hiding the color attribute, so in the snippet I use the “attribute_pa_color” key. If you wish to target a different attribute, change that key accordingly.

add_filter( 'woocommerce_display_product_attributes', 'bbloomer_exclude_attribute_from_attribute_table', 9999, 2 );

function bbloomer_exclude_attribute_from_attribute_table( $product_attributes, $product ) {
	if ( isset( $product_attributes[ 'attribute_pa_color' ] ) ) unset( $product_attributes[ 'attribute_pa_color' ] );
	return $product_attributes;

Where to add custom code?

You should place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file and CSS at the bottom of its style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my guide "Should I Add Custom Code Via WP Editor, FTP or Code Snippets?" and my video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything went as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting.
