WooCommerce + Storefront Theme: Hide Homepage Title

The Storefront theme displays the homepage H1 title by default, no matter if you use the “Default” or the “Homepage” page template.

Of course, you could do it via CSS, with a simple “display:none”. Even better, you could completely avoid loading the homepage 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? Here’s the quick fix!

Where to add custom code?

You should place custom PHP in functions.php and custom CSS in style.css of your child theme: where to place WooCommerce customization?

This code still works, unless you report otherwise. To exclude conflicts, temporarily switch to the Storefront theme, disable all plugins except WooCommerce, and test the snippet again: WooCommerce troubleshooting 101

  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    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?
