There are many meta boxes on product page. some are added by default by WordPress and some are added by WooCommerce plugin. Like product tag, product categories, product gallery etc are added by WooCommerce.

How to disabled product tags in your shop. Or remove short description. Or even, you want to hide other custom “metabox” (e.g. one of those widgets that appear on the Edit Product page).

Removing metaboxes and making the Edit Product page much cleaner is quite easy, using “remove_meta_box” function.

For Removing Product tags or Product short description on product edit page we need the “ID” of the metabox and its position (‘normal’ or ‘side’).

For example:

For removing Product Tag From product page

null

function RemoveProductMetaboxes() {;
  remove_meta_box('tagsdiv-product_tag','product','side'); // For remove product tags
}
add_action('add_meta_boxes_product','RemoveProductMetaboxes', 199 );
