Example of an individual/single product page in WooCommerce.

Modify the WooCommerce single – individual product page

Here is an example of a single / individual product page in WooCommerce.

Using the default theme Twenty Twenty Two.

Example of an individual/single product page in WooCommerce.
Example of an individual/single product page in WooCommerce.

There are different ways to add code. Through a code snippet plugin, through the customizer, in a custom plugin or through a child theme functions.php file and style.css file.

The product image

We see the product image with zoom features. The following code examples removes the zoom, lightbox and slider effects.

/* Disable the magnification zoom, lightbox and slider. Add the code to the functions file. https://github.com/woocommerce/woocommerce/issues/18131#issuecomment-392242855 */
add_action( 'template_redirect', function() {
    remove_theme_support( 'wc-product-gallery-zoom' );
    remove_theme_support( 'wc-product-gallery-lightbox' ); 
    remove_theme_support( 'wc-product-gallery-slider' );
}, 100 );

Make the product image non clickable with CSS.

 /* Make the product image non clickable. */
 .woocommerce div.product div.woocommerce-product-gallery figure.woocommerce-product-gallery__wrapper {
    margin: 0;
    pointer-events: none !important;

Using a video instead of the product image.

/* Switching the product image with a video.
https://www.businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-show-video-instead-featured-image/ */
function bbloomer_show_video_not_image() {
   // Do this for product ID = 11 only
   if ( is_single( '11' ) ) {
      remove_action( 'woocommerce_before_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_show_product_images', 20 );
      remove_action( 'woocommerce_product_thumbnails', 'woocommerce_show_product_thumbnails', 20 );
      add_action( 'woocommerce_before_single_product_summary', 'bbloomer_show_product_video', 20 );

function bbloomer_show_product_video() {
   echo '<div class="woocommerce-product-gallery">';
   // get video embed HTML from YouTube
   echo '<iframe width="480" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/JHN7viKRxbQ?rel=0&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>';
   echo '</div>';

CSS video adjustments.

/* CSS adjustment for adding a video instead of product image. */
.woocommerce div.product div.woocommerce-product-gallery {
    position: relative;
    width: 500px;
    float: left;

The result of using a video instead of an image in the single product page:

Show video instead of product images in WooCommerce.

Make the product image go full width.

CSS only adjustments.

/* Make the product image go full width. Pushes the other information below the image.
https://www.businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-full-width-featured-image-single-product-page/ */
.woocommerce #content div.product div.images, .woocommerce div.product div.images, .woocommerce-page #content div.product div.images, .woocommerce-page div.product div.images, .woocommerce #content div.product div.summary, .woocommerce div.product div.summary, .woocommerce-page #content div.product div.summary, .woocommerce-page div.product div.summary {
   float: none;
   width: 100%;
   max-width: unset;
   clear: both;

.woocommerce-product-gallery img {
   width: 100%;

Product information to the right of the image.

To the right of the product image we have the title, price, short description, quantity, Add to cart button, category and tags. One can rename, reorder or remove any of these sections.

Moving the title and product description

Each section is has a priority number associated with it to tell WooCommerce where these should be located in relation to each other. These are called hooks.

WooCommerce Single Product Page [Visual Hook Guide]

Businessbloomer woocommerce visual hook guide single product page.


Below product image:
woocommerce_product_thumbnails (may not work)

Right product area:

After product area:

woocommerce_template_single_title – 5
woocommerce_template_single_price – 10
woocommerce_template_single_excerpt – 20
woocommerce_template_single_add_to_cart – 30
woocommerce_template_single_meta – 40
woocommerce_template_single_sharing – 50

To change the priority, you need to remove the hook and add it again with a new number. This will change where a section is located.

Some examples.

/* Move the product price from above the product short description section to below the short description. */
remove_action('woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_price', 10);
add_action('woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_price', 20);

/* Move the product title to above the product image. The code will remove the title from the woocommerce_single_product_summary section and place it into the woocommerce_before_single_product_summary section. */
remove_action('woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_title', 5);
add_action('woocommerce_before_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_title', 5);
Modifying with hooks the location of the product short description and the product title.

The following will hide the meta section. Categories, Tags and SKU number.

/* Remove the meta section. Hide the SKU number, category and  tags. 
https://www.businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-hide-category-tag-single-product-page/ */
remove_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_template_single_meta', 40 );

/* Remove only the SKU number from the frontend. 
https://www.businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-hide-sku-front-end/ */
add_filter( 'wc_product_sku_enabled', 'bbloomer_remove_product_page_sku' );
function bbloomer_remove_product_page_sku( $enabled ) {
    if ( ! is_admin() && is_product() ) {
        return false;
    return $enabled;
/* CSS: hide the product meta */
.single-product div.product .product_meta {
    display: none;
/* CSS: Remove "In Stock" label and number. */
.woocommerce div.product .stock {
    display: none;

Add custom text above the Add to Cart selection and button.

/* Add custom text above add to cart selection and button. 
https://www.businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-add-text-add-cart-single-product-page/ */
 add_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'bbloomer_show_return_policy', 20 );

 function bbloomer_show_return_policy() {
     echo '<p class="custom-text">Custom text above add to cart number selection and button.</p>';
/* A variation of the above which also includes adding a link to the text. https://quadlayers.com/edit-woocommerce-product-page-programmatically/ */
add_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'woo_text_link', 20 );

function woo_text_link() {
	echo( '<p>Some text here. <a href="#" class="custom-text">A custom link!</a></p>');

Add the CSS to the class “custom-text”.
