How to Hide a Category in WooCommerce

Table of Contents

If you’re the owner of a WooCommerce website, you know that it can be tricky to manage products, categories and prices. But what about when you need to hide certain categories? Here we’ll break down how to do just that.

How To Hide Your Categories

In order to hide your categories, you’ll need to go into the ‘Products’ section of your WordPress dashboard. Once there, select the ‘Categories’ tab on the left-hand side of the page. From here, tick the box next to each category that you would like to hide and then click “Bulk Actions > Edit” at the top of the page.

This will open up a new window where you can check off whether or not each category should be visible on your website. To make sure they are hidden from view, simply uncheck the box under ‘Visibility’ and click ‘Update’ at the bottom right-hand corner of the page. This will ensure that these categories are hidden from both customers and staff – unless they have special permissions granted by an admin.

You may also want to consider disabling reviews for any categories which are being hidden from public view. You can do this by going into each individual product within a category and unchecking ‘Enable Reviews’ under Product Data > General in your WordPress dashboard. This will stop customers from being able to leave reviews for products which aren’t visible on your website.

Hiding WooCommerce categories is an effective way of streamlining your online store and ensuring only relevant products are displayed on your website. By following these steps, website owners can easily manage their product catalogue without having to delete items completely or restrict access only certain staff members or customers. When used correctly, hiding WooCommerce categories is an invaluable tool for keeping your store organised and efficient!
