Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » How to remove default text on My Account page

  • Good day

    On My Account page I have the text:
    ” Hello user (not user? Sign out)

    From your account dashboard you can view your recent orders, manage your shipping and billing addresses and edit your password and account details.”

    How/where can I modify this text?

    Thank you

  • @hmartens- This text comes from the my account template, dashboard.php. You can find more details on how to edit the text here- https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/template-structure/

    Another way would be to modify these strings using the Loco Translate plugin. In this context, “translate” also means using different words in the same language.

    Thank you Lorro. I was thinking about doing it this way but it seems a bit more hacky to me 🙂

    Appreciate your help!

    I’ll differ on that. All strings go through the translate function as a matter of course. Loco Translate is the WooCommerce recommended plugin for modifying the translated text.

    Conversely, if you create your own template, you will have the maintenance burden of updating it from time to time as WooCommerce develops. Not for every point release, but for major releases you may have to.

    I agree with @lorro. If you want to avoid any mess, you can create a child theme copying the template file. I guess that should help with the future updates too.

    Alternatively, the loco translate plugin might ease up your workload.

    Either way, keep us posted with the process.

    Thanks for all the help! Much appreciated!

    I am using a child theme. I’ve added the dashboard.php to my theme and changed the text but I’m not seeing the text change. Is there another place I need to place it? I’ve added the dashboard.php into my theme folder where my functions.php file is.

    Thank you

    Ok great, I got it working! I had to copy it in my theme to a folder called woocommerce and in a folder in there called myaccount.

    Thank you for the help wonderful people!

    Glad to know that you were able to get it working.
