This is a small code snippet for Easy Digital Downloads that will remove the “Purchase Short Code”┬ácolumn from the main downloads screen within the admin.

I find this particular column uses far too many rows for my liking (5) and I prefer to see more downloads on the page at a glance. If I ever need to use the purchase_link shortcode (I rarely do), I can always do so by using the “insert download” on the edit/publish page screen.

Paste the following function into your child theme’s functions.php or custom plugin.
