Disable WooCommerce Product Reviews

While it’s true that product reviews can be highly valuable for any eCommerce store, there are occasions where you simply don’t need them. Here are 2 methods to disable them:

Disable Reviews in the Settings

You can disable product reviews by turning them off in the settings. Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products and uncheck Enable product reviews.

Disable Reviews Programatically

For my demo sites I use a multisite installation. To save myself setting this option every time, I just disable reviews globally for products in the theme settings. You can do this with a very simple code snippet.

Add this to your theme or child theme in the functions.php file, or using the Code Snippets plugin.

    how do we remove the comment function and keep the rating? In other words, to leave a review, all the customer has to do is select a rating (star), fill out their details and press submit.
