    Messed up the title but couldnt change it.

    I would like to change the displayed SKUto Part #. I found its location within class-wc-product.php but when I change this it doesnt change on the visual page.

    Site is under construction:

    I'm not a real tech guy, but this is one of the only parts that have stumped me so far.
    Any help would be great, thanks in advance

    You changed the following line:

    'sku' => __( 'SKU:', 'woocommerce' ) . ' ' . $variation->get_sku(),


    'sku' => __( 'Part #:', 'woocommerce' ) . ' ' . $variation->get_sku(),

    Then make sure you dump your browser cache, your wordpress cache if you are running one, and any other caches (such as Cloudflare).

    That's what I thought would do it, but it does not change it. It's the only file I could find with "SKU:" but there must be something else.

    I dont know how to clear the wordpress cache. Does woocommerce using caching? That could be a problem I suppose. I have cleared the browser cache. Thanks

    Clear transients?

    I have no idea what "clear transients" are.
    I could only find one file previously in the woocommerce plugin editor. I just realized that each file you click on the right, when opened, also displays other files which werent on the original files list.
    I found the file which needed to be modified (meta.php)as you said in the directory:


    Thanks! This file also allowed me to remove the category listing that kept showing up after the SKU field
