Hi Manish,

I have one e-commerce website in WooCommerce, in sidebar it’s showing a category ‘Uncategorized’ which looks odd in UI, any suggestion how to remove that from my sidebar??


Paste the following codes at last in functions.php, before any closing tag (if any)

add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_categories_widget_args', 'custom_woocommerce_product_subcategories_args' );

function custom_woocommerce_product_subcategories_args( $args ) {

$args['exclude'] = get_option( 'default_product_cat' );

return $args;
