WooCommerce: Remove Additional Information Tab @ Single Product
The “Additional Information” tab on the single product page is somewhat annoying and, honestly, quite useless.
There are 2 simple methods to “hide” it or delete it completely: a CSS and a PHP solution. In the first case, you can input the code in your style.css; in the second case use your child theme’s functions.php.
However, Always remember that PHP is better than CSS: with CSS you load the element and then hide it, while with PHP you stop the element from loading. Clearly, PHP is a better way to do it!
As many readers would love to code but don’t feel 100% confident with it, I decided to look for a reliable plugin that achieves the same result.
In this case, there are two!
To start with, you can install Barn2’s WooCommerce Product Tabs plugin, which will let you do exactly the same thing and more. When you install the plugin, go to the plugin settings page and tick the box to hide the Additional Information tab. If you want to make other changes to your product page tabs, then you can do that too. You can rename the default tabs, add icons to them, and also create your own custom tabs containing whatever content you need. This will give you a lot more flexibility than the default Additional Information tab.
In alternative, I recommend the YITH WooCommerce Tab Manager plugin. On top of deleting default tabs such as the “Reviews” and “Description” ones, you can also add your own, conditionally show tabs based on category or product ID, print any content inside the new tabs such as custom shortcodes, hide on mobile and much more.
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

WooCommerce: Add Custom Field to Product Variations Adding and displaying custom fields on WooCommerce products is quite simple. For example, you can add a “RRP/MSRP” field to a product, or maybe use ACF and display its value on the single product page. Easy, yes. Unfortunately, the above only applies to “simple” products without variations (or the parent product if it’s a variable […]
WooCommerce: Show Number Of Products Sold @ Product Page WooCommerce database already stores the number of products sold for you. Therefore, you may want to show such number on the product page, close to the Add To Cart button.
