Jigoshop completely remove Product Description Tab

As you’ll know we love the Jigoshop WordPress E-Commerce plugin, but when recently using it for a client we couldn’t find a way to remove the Product Description Tab completely. This dispite the Jigoshop function here: –


Our response uses pure CSS and will work in modern browsers. Simply add the following to your style sheet:-

/* Hide the tabs and panels */
#page div.product #tabs ul.tabs li:first-child {
 display: none;
#page div.product #tabs .panel:first-child {
 display: none;
#tab-description[style] {
 display: none!important;
#tab-attributes {
 display: block!important;
/* Make the new first tab background white */
#page div.product #tabs .panel:nth-child(2) {
 background: #ffffff;

Let us know how you get on!

UPDATE: Do it as a function

Jigoshop have updated the code and it now works 100%:-

// Remove product description tab
remove_action( 'jigoshop_product_tabs', 'jigoshop_product_description_tab', 10 );
remove_action( 'jigoshop_product_tab_panels', 'jigoshop_product_description_panel', 10 );

So you can replace our CSS fix with this code that is added directly into your theme’s functions.php file.
