What I am wanting to achieve is to remove an action called inside of another action.

The action is calling a style, and although I have tried to deregister, and dequeue the style, it is still displaying on the admin pages.

Here is the code snippet (inside of WooCommerce):

function woocommerce_admin_menu() {
    global $menu, $woocommerce;...

    $print_css_on = apply_filters( 'woocommerce_screen_ids', array( 'toplevel_page_woocommerce', 'woocommerce_page_woocommerce_settings', 'woocommerce_page_woocommerce_reports', 'woocommerce_page_woocommerce_status', 'product_page_woocommerce_attributes', 'edit-tags.php', 'edit.php', 'index.php', 'post-new.php', 'post.php' ) );

    foreach ( $print_css_on as $page )
        add_action( 'admin_print_styles-'. $page, 'woocommerce_admin_css' );
add_action('admin_menu', 'woocommerce_admin_menu', 9);

What I've tried to do:

add_action('init', 'remove_action_123', 999);
function remove_action_123() {
        $print_css_on = apply_filters( 'woocommerce_screen_ids', array( 'toplevel_page_woocommerce', 'woocommerce_page_woocommerce_settings', 'woocommerce_page_woocommerce_reports', 'woocommerce_page_woocommerce_status', 'product_page_woocommerce_attributes', 'edit-tags.php', 'edit.php', 'index.php', 'post-new.php', 'post.php' ) );add_action('init', 'remove_action', 999);

        // Remove 'woocommerce_admin_menu'
    foreach ( $print_css_on as $page )
    remove_action( 'admin_print_styles-'. $page, 'woocommerce_admin_css' );

This is how it's being enqueued:

function woocommerce_admin_css() {
    global $woocommerce, $typenow, $post, $wp_scripts;...

    if ( $typenow == '' || $typenow == "product" || $typenow == "shop_order" || $typenow == "shop_coupon" ) {
        wp_enqueue_style( 'woocommerce_admin_styles', $woocommerce->plugin_url() . '/assets/css/admin.css' );


So I also tried:

wp_dequeue_style( 'woocommerce_admin_styles' )

But it is still not working.

Any ideas on how to successfully remove this css?

Thanks! Roc.


To clean up a complete array use the helper function __return_empty_array() as callback:

add_filter( 'woocommerce_screen_ids', '__return_empty_array', );

Similar helpers for further usage are:

  • __return_true()
  • __return_false()
  • __return_zero()
  • __return_null()
