Remove Dashboard from My Account Menu

I have a detailed tutorial about my account menu in WooCommerce on my blog and there you can find a chapter about removing menu links.

But the thing is that you can not just remove any link that easy. The problems may appear if you would like to remove “Dashboard” from my account menu.

So our goal for this tutorial is not only to remove a “Dashboard” menu link but also to perform a redirect to the next menu link. It is “Orders” by default.

I hope it is crystal clear why we need a redirect. Let’s imagine a situation when a customer signs in to your WooCommerce website. What My Account page will be displayed by default? Right. Besides, wp_get_page_permalink( 'myaccount' ) is probably used in your theme files, this function also sends users to the Dashboard page! So I think it is not enough just to redirect users after signing in, we should redirect them every time they are trying to access the Dashboard.

How to Hide Out of Stock Products

By default, when a product is out of stock it is still going to be displayed on your shop and product archive pages and there is going to be “Read more” button instead of “Add to cart”, like this:

Out of stock items are displayed by default

But if you are reading this, I suppose you do not want them to be displayed, right? ;)
