Here’s how to remove those annoying “yellow” product category counters in the WooCommerce shop / category / loop pages. You will find several versions of this snippet all over the internet…. but in case you haven’t found it yet, here’s the simple one-liner PHP code you need to add to your functions.php file.
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.

Great snippet!! it works perfectly.
Thank you so much!
Thank you so much! I have a weird situation where the counter is gone from all of the categories except the first one.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
Deanna, 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!
Thank you!!!! Been trying all morning to fix this. Used a snippet plugin like Noah recommended and YES, it works. THANK YOU!
Thank you so much – was going mad trying to sort that but the code and the tip from a previous poster about the snippet plugin and it worked a treat.
Your snippet worked great. Since I don’t know much about child themes and was scared to mess up the code, I downloaded a snippet plugin, and inserted your snippet into it then let the plugin do the rest. It works beautifully. Thanks so much for the help. Your videos are awesome as well.
Thank you so much Noah 🙂
Wow what a helpful Blog, Please may I ask where do we insert the code for all of your snippets?
I bet you get asked this question frequently! 🙂
Cheers Liz 🙂 Indeed, quite a common question. I’ve actually created a tutorial on this that goes through this exact need: https://businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-customization-hangout. Hope this helps & thanks again!
