WooCommerce: Hide “No products were found matching your selection”

When your WooCommerce store has no published products the shop page will not display anything. A message “No products were found matching your selection” will show instead. The same applies to empty categories.

So, how do we hide this notice? Thankfully, and once again, one line of PHP is sufficient to achieve the result! Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Hiding the “No products were found matching your selection” on the Shop / Category pages

PHP snippet: Hide “No products were found matching your selection” @ WooCommerce Shop Page and/or Category Pages


/**
 * @snippet       Remove "No products were found matching your selection" @ WooCommerce Loop Pages
 * @how-to        Watch tutorial @ https://businessbloomer.com/?p=19055

remove_action( 'woocommerce_no_products_found', 'wc_no_products_found' );

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7+.
