WooCommerce: Hide “No products were found matching your selection”
When your WooCommerce store has no published products the shop page will not display anything. A message “No products were found matching your selection” will show instead. The same applies to empty categories or when you decide to completely hide the shop page products for some reason, especially for custom built layouts.
So, how do we hide this notice? Thankfully, and once again, one line of PHP is sufficient to achieve the result! Enjoy 🙂

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (delete "?>" if you have it there). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme 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 free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"
Does this snippet (still) work?
Please let me know in the comments if everything worked 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 on PHP 7.3.

First of all thank you for the free tips !
Unfortunately that does not work for my website.
– Wordress Version: 6.0.2
– Theme used: Foodica Lite
Is there by any chance a new code for this topic ?
Thanks for your message Henri! Code works for me – please try with a different theme and no plugins active (but WooCommerce) and see if it works?
Made my Day, thanks a lot!
Thank you! The code works.
But I would like to clarify – What kind of code should be in order to remove “No products were found matching your selection” only from the main page of the store?
I suggest you take a look at “conditional logic”: https://businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-conditional-logic-ultimate-php-guide/. Enjoy 🙂
Sorry, not working in WC 3.7.1 and enfold theme
Rsingga, thanks for your comment! I just tested this again with Storefront theme and it works perfectly. Maybe your theme (or another plugin) is messing/conflicting with my snippet?
To troubleshoot, disable all plugins but WooCommerce and also switch temporarily to “Twentyseventeen” theme (load the snippet there in functions.php) – does it work? If yes, you have a problem with your current theme or one of the plugins.
Hope this helps!
I’m using wordpress 5.1.1 with the latest version of woocommerce but this is not working for me. I added it to a snipets plugin and its activated. Is it working for you on the latest version?
Hello Breda, thanks for your message! Works for me, yes – WC 3.5.7 and Storefront theme
