    Would it be possible to hide/disable editing of the field “Store Name” in vendor’s dashboard settings?
    I don’t want users to be able to edit their store name. Since I’m using custom wordpress registration, their store name gets assigned automatically upon registration. I’m fine with that field being around (I just don’t want it to be editable).


    You’ have to hide it by modifying the store-settings.php template or by using a filter to hide the field.
    This filter would hide the field- but it still leaves the title and instructions…

    If you modify the template, you can comment it out.. but make sure that a Store name has been chosen, as it is a required field so it will cause issues if a store name is not chosen.
    Comment out:

    <!-- Store Name -->
    		<?php // WCVendors_Pro_Store_Form::store_name( $store_name ); ?>

    To modify templates, see here:


    Hi Anna,

    Thank you for your help, highly appreciated!

    So I’ve comment out the store name field, although the Store Name field is gone on dashboard settings, now when I try to save payment details on vendor’s dashboard settings, I’m getting an error saying that store name needs to be unique.

    Since I’m using custom registration, users can pick their username when registering, which is then assigned by WC Vendors as a Vendor’s Store Name.

    Do I have to to add some code to bypass Store name field when saving the form on vendor pro dashboard settings? I’ve found this article http://docs.wcvendors.com/knowledge-base/wcv-default-store-name-2/ but I’m not sure if it’s relevant and where should I place this code..

    Thanks again.




    That code would just change the default store name settings (by default username ‘s store), and it would be placed in your theme/child theme functions.php file.

    Is the vendor’s store name actually being assigned with your custom application?
