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        Watch tutorial @ https://businessbloomer.com/?p=19055
 * @sourcecode    https://businessbloomer.com/?p=79966
 * @author        Rodolfo Melogli
 * @compatible    WooCommerce 3.4.5
 */

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        Watch tutorial @ https://businessbloomer.com/?p=19055
 * @sourcecode    https://businessbloomer.com/?p=79966
 * @author        Rodolfo Melogli
 * @compatible    WooCommerce 3.4.5
 */

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 code?

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

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.
