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.

  1. Hi there
    This didn’t work for me with woodmart theme. The Woodmart theme has extra produce tabs – would this be the problem?
    I have used a few of your snippets, thank you for sharing, they are great!

    1. Hi
      I used the code https://www.businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-edit-product-tabs-labels/
      which worked perfectly
      I think I got them muddled up.
      have also removed the Additional information tab which really bugged me as t had no other information!
      Thank you!

  2. Thank you, you are a lifesaver ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Cheers!

  3. Would it be possible to dynamically display the product name rather than static text?

    1. Hello Graham, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is possible – but unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R
