On my single product pages, I would like to change the meta data so that the Category button for the product does not display. I can't seem to figure out where this is called. I've looked in various php files. Thank you for your help.
As an alternative to editing the meta template, you can prevent the meta information from being displayed on single product pages at all. This can be handy if you also don't want to display the SKUs. Here is how to do it:
remove_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_meta', 40 );
It goes to your
Old question, but I want to point out overriding templates. Nick's answer removes all the meta display. In my case, I only wanted to remove the category and not all the meta information.
Create a copy of single product meta file to
Remove the following line (line 38 on version 3.5):
<?php echo wc_get_product_category_list( $product->get_id(), ', ', '<span class="posted_in">' . _n( 'Category:', 'Categories:', count( $product->get_category_ids() ), 'woocommerce' ) . ' ', '</span>' ); ?>
This way, you can update WooCommerce without it overwriting your changes.
