WooCommerce settings are located at wp-admin/admin.php?page=wc-settings and each of the Tabs for its settings is a continuation of the URL query string (ex: wp-admin/admin.php?page=wc-settings&tab=products for Products).

I know how to use the woocommerce_settings_tabs_array hook to manipulate the tab itself, but these Tabs also have sub links called "Sections."

For example, Products has General, Inventory, Downloadable Products and Product Vendors for me since I have a premium plugin.

How do I remove these sections from underneath the tab? Specifically, I want to remove the Product Vendors link that that premium extension added.


WooCommerce settings with product tab

To change this "sub navigation" you could use the WooCommerce filter "woocommerce_get_sections_products".

The following example code will remove the sub navigation point "inventory":

function change_navi_function($sections)
    // remove sub navigation point "inventory"

    return $sections;

add_filter('woocommerce_get_sections_products', 'change_navi_function');

WooCommerce settings with product tab without the subnavigation point inventory

What you have to do now is either to hook your "change_navi_function" function after the function from the premium plugin and then remove the "Product Vendors" from the "$sections" array. Or you unhook the function from the premium plugin which use the "woocommerce_get_sections_products" filter.
