How to Remove WooCommerce “My Account” Tabs
WooCommerce comes with an entire account management system out of the box. This is built on the back of the user and account functions that come with WordPress so anyone familiar with that should be right at home here.
Your store’s theme, or design, will include a separate layout for your customers to manage and access parts of their accounts after they have made a purchase. This layout comes in the form of a tabbed interface with different sections containing your customer’s information:
- Account Details
It will look a little something like this:
Of course, it’s highly likely that you don’t want or need your customers to be able to access all of that information. Some of those tabs, like Downloads for an obvious example, might not even apply to your store at all.
WooCommerce doesn’t have a built-in way to remove those tabs from the account page. In order to get these tabs removed you’ll need to make some code changes to you store’s theme. That requires getting your hands dirty with text editors and FTP programs or hiring a WooCommerce developer or WordPress expert to take care of that for you. The time and cost on that can vary but good programmers cost money and are usually pretty busy.
As an alternative to hiring a developer you can use Remove WooCommerce Features to individually remove any of the “My Account” tabs you want with out any technically knowledge or a huge time investment.
