I have a WooCommerce store with a category structure as follows:


I want to hide the sidebar on the parent Accessories category page, but still have it visible for the child sub-categories.
I’ve read the documentation, tried every documented example, but still can’t get it to work.
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for using our plugin.

    You can hide the sidebar only for Accessories parent category if you go to the sidebar visibility settings, add this token [tax:product_cat:accessories_category_slug] and select the option to Show on all except these pages.
    Please let me know if it does the trick.

    Kind regards,
