How to Remove the WooCommerce Product Image Slider
WooCommerce wants your customers to have the best user experience possible and it tries to do this the best is can out of the box without any modifications. The idea is that you can use the WooCommerce platform to get an online store up and running quickly and with little fuss.
Of course, what WooCommerce thinks is important isn’t always in line with what you want to see on your store. A popular example of a default interface that WooCommerce likes to include by default, and is commonly used by many third-party themes, is including a slider style of navigation when a product has multiple photos or images attached to it.
The idea is to make it easier for your customers to be able to see all angles and options of the product they are about to purchase. Unfortunately, not all themes handle this the same way so it’s occasionally worth removing from your product pages entirely.
There is no way to handle this removal inside of WooCommerce itself. For changes like this a WooCommerce expert or developer will need to add some code to the files in your theme in order to remove the product image slider from your store. This can take time (and money) to track down someone qualified to make this kind of theme change and it has to be done correctly so that future updates don’t overwrite the fix and start you back at square one.
