How to Remove the WooCommerce Sidebar

Plenty of WooCommerce themes follow the standard conventions found in regular WordPress designs and sites. This means things like sidebars are included with many WooCommerce designs and often they aren’t necessary or wanted.

One place you will commonly find sidebars on WooCommerce sites is on individual product pages. These sidebars contain common elements like:

  • Search Forms
  • A List of Recent Posts
  • Categories & Tags
  • Quick Access to Post Archives

A lot of those elements, as you can probably tell, have more to do with standard blogs than an actual online store.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to remove these sidebars from your product pages from within the WooCommerce infrastructure. So your options are limited to editing your theme’s files or using our Remove WooCommerce Features plugin.

If you want to go with the file editing option it’s recommended you spend some time and find a trustworthy WordPress developer to handle the change for you. Making adjustments to theme files can be a tricky process and any mistakes can have a significant impact on your store.

In order to save time and money on a developer you can just use Remove WooCommerce Features instead and disable product page sidebars from your store in a matter of minutes.
