WooCommerce: How to Add a Top Bar to Storefront Theme

The Storefront theme is one of the most popular WooCommerce themes. As of today, it has 200,000 active installations and 4.5/5 ratings, as well as a great overall performance.

But sure, you can’t win them all. Storefront is missing an important feature: the top bar. That’s a pity, because most ecommerce themes have either a dedicated widget area or somewhere you can add content in the theme options.

So, let’s go fix that. Here’s how to add a top bar with a background to your Storefront theme. Enjoy!

Just replace “Your text here” in the snippet below with the content you like. You can even return content via a shortcode by using do_shortcode or even display a widget with the_widget!

PHP Snippet: Add Top Bar to Storefront Theme

add_action( 'storefront_before_header', 'bbloomer_storefront_top_bar' );

function bbloomer_storefront_top_bar() {
	?>
	<div class="sf-top-bar">
		<div class="col-full">
			Your text here	
		</div>
	</div>
	<?php
}

And a bit of CSS for styling the top bar:

.sf-top-bar {
	text-align: center;
	padding: 0.2em 0;
	background: #E11F27;
	color: white;
}

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (delete "?>" if you have it there). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7.3.
