WooCommerce + Storefront: Hide “Home” Title @ Homepage

Storefront theme adds a “Home” H1 title to the homepage by default, no matter if you use the “Default” or the “Homepage” static page template.

Of course, you could do it via CSS, with a simple “display:none”. Even better, you could completely avoid loading the “Home” title by using PHP (SEOs out there: better not to load an H1 than hiding it via CSS, right?).

So, how do they do it (I mean how to hide the Storefront “Home” title)? Here’s the quick fix!

Storefront theme: how to remove the homepage title

PHP Snippet 1: Remove Homepage Title @ Storefront (“Homepage” Page Template)

/**
 * @snippet       Hide Homepage Title - Storefront Homepage Page Template
 * @how-to        Get CustomizeWoo.com FREE
 * @sourcecode    https://businessbloomer.com/?p=79966
 * @author        Rodolfo Melogli
 * @compatible    Woo 3.5.3
 * @donate $9     https://businessbloomer.com/bloomer-armada/
 */

add_action( 'wp', 'bbloomer_storefront_remove_title_from_home_homepage_template' );

function bbloomer_storefront_remove_title_from_home_homepage_template() {
	remove_action( 'storefront_homepage', 'storefront_homepage_header', 10 );
}

PHP Snippet 2: Remove Homepage Title @ Storefront (“Default” Page Template)

/**
 * @snippet       Hide Homepage Title - Storefront Default Page Template
 * @how-to        Get CustomizeWoo.com FREE
 * @sourcecode    https://businessbloomer.com/?p=79966
 * @author        Rodolfo Melogli
 * @compatible    Woo 3.5.3
 * @donate $9     https://businessbloomer.com/bloomer-armada/
 */

add_action( 'wp', 'bbloomer_storefront_remove_title_from_home_default_template' );

function bbloomer_storefront_remove_title_from_home_default_template() {
	if ( is_front_page() ) remove_action( 'storefront_page', 'storefront_page_header', 10 );
}

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.

  1. After removing the title on Storefront it leaves a massive space afterwards. Do you have a suitable code to remove this spacing? Thank you 🙂

    1. Hey Liz, a simple CSS call would do it. Do you have an URL I can take a look?

  2. Hi, it worked but it left a gap, how do remove the spacing between the slider and the Shop Categories?

    1. With a little CSS

  3. Hi there,

    Didn’t work either snippet. Using Storefront version 2.5.3. Any further guidelines? Many thanks.

    1. Which homepage page template do you use?

  4. snippet 1 worked for me by editing Theme Customisations functions.php (https://github.com/woocommerce/theme-customisations) rather than the Storefront child theme Boutique as it recommends to do this.
    Many thanks.

    1. Ok

  5. does not work. I tried both snippets with storefront 2.5.0 on WordPress 5.2.1

    1. Using Gutenberg on that page?

      1. I am having the problem that it is showing, I am using Gutenberg on that page

        1. Not sure Elroy, it works on my own homepage

  6. Will this only work if you have the storefront theme as the default theme? I am using storefront as a child theme and these snippets didnt work for me. 🙁

    1. Hey Nadia, thanks for your comment! Will work for Storefront child theme too, as long as there is not other conflicting code in it 🙂

  7. It works — thanks! =)

    1. Excellent 🙂

  8. it doesnt work

    1. Hello there, thanks for your comment 🙂 It works even on this website, so this is weird. What snippet version did you try?
