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 custom PHP in functions.php and custom CSS in style.css of your child theme: where to place WooCommerce customization?

This code still works, unless you report otherwise. To exclude conflicts, temporarily switch to the Storefront theme, disable all plugins except WooCommerce, and test the snippet again: WooCommerce troubleshooting 101
