    Thanks dlab

  4. Hey!

    thank you so much for these.

    Do you think you could update the “#16 How to rename ‘Navigation’ in mobile view on Storefront” section?

    There has been updates since, and this code no longer works….it does change to “Menu” but the toggle function is disabled.

    #6 How to Remove the sidebar on WooCommerce product pages to go full width

    Something may have changed in this code as suggested… I put it in the child theme functions file and it caused the site to break, had to delete it via ftp. I should have thought to copy the error message to add here. It made the site go completely blank.

    1. Jane, was the error message this:

      Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function ‘remove_storefront_sidebar’ not found or invalid function name in /home/healthygs/healthygs/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php on line 298

  7. Nice work. Please #8 How to add a top bar to Storefont (for cool things like social icons or a welcome message) is not working at all for me. I have have tried putting the code directly into the header.php but still did not work.
    your quick response will be appreciated.
    Thanks.

      1. When adding the code for #8 you’ll need to start the code at

        “function storefront…”

        It doesn’t need the ?php at the beginning – that line of code is causing it to give the error.

  8. HI.. I cannot find anything about how to change the width of the drop-down menu elements.. There’s a way to do it in a child theme..? Thanks

  9. Hi Jamie
    This is all best, I have a small question too. How can I toggle mobile menu earlier in this theme? Currently it goes to mobile menu when vp is smaller than 767px.

  10. So I implemented #12 and #14, and I tried using the customizer to change my header background color to White.. the next time I clicked update on my php editor, I got this error.. what is going on? How to fix?

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘<' in /home4/mywebdes/public_html/bodyboy.com/wp-content/themes/storefront-child/functions.php on line 3

  11. How would you make the whole theme a fixed width on desktop view? The same width as the middle column. Will the Pro plugin allow me to do this?

  12. Hello and thank you so much for this information.
    I am trying to make the slider full screen. I followed your directions by placing the code in the functions php however, the slider shows up on all my site pages and not just the home page. Any suggestions how to fix this?
    Thanks again!

  15. Hi,

    I am using the Storefront theme (but not child theme).

    1. Is there any CSS coding for editing the search bar style (more rounded and longer)?

    2. I tried searching for removing the shopping cart icon on the top of the page but none of the CSS coding is working. Is there any other way?

    3. How to filter up the color by category? I have already add the color filter but it doesn’t filter up by different category.

    4. Is there any plugins that can check broken External/Affiliate Links?

    5. Is there any other plugins that can update the external products features like price, sales and availability?

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Nur, just try to overwrite the original Storefront CSS. It should be here somewhere:
      wp-content\themes\storefront\assets\sass\base\icons.css
      Change the content

      .site-header-cart .cart-contents::after {
      content: “\f291”;
      }
      That’s all.
      Cheers,
      kadamba

  16. Jamie,

    I’m so thankful for your tips here, it shortened a great deal of work on my end! So 1st off, thank you!

    Second on number 6 talking about the sidebars. I’ve copied the code directly and received an error, I’ve then changed the ‘get_header’ after add action to ‘init’, instead and I receive the same error regardless. I’m wondering if it’s calling for one thing and it isn’t there. Here is the error message.

    Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function ‘remove_storefront_sidebar’ not found or invalid function name in /wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php on line 298

    Any ideas message me back please.

    1. Benjamin van Caspel

      There’s a line of code missing from that snippet should look more like this:

      add_action( ‘get_header’, ‘remove_storefront_sidebar’ );
      function remove_storefront_sidebar() {
      if ( is_product() ) {
      remove_action( ‘storefront_sidebar’, ‘storefront_get_sidebar’,10 );
      }
      }

  19. I installed the plugin (storefront jetpack) to align the nav menu to the right of the logo. But it hides the search box too. I want to keep the search box, while aligning the menu to the right of the logo.

    Anywway to chieve this?

  20. I have storefront pro, but I was hoping i would be able to customise the section headings in the homepage as shop by category, new in etc does not fit my shop. how can i do that please

  21. Hi,

    Great site! I have 2 plugins from you.

    However I have issue with #8; storefront_before_header does not place the topbar before the header but directly under it. I tried the storefront topbar plugin as well from Wooassist, but exactly the same thing happens.
    I first tried on a child theme with storefront as parent, the directly on storefront. Nothing changes.
    what could be the issue ?

    1. Hi Anna,

      If you are using Storefront Pro you can use the ‘Header Bar’ feature. Go to Customize / Header and Navigation / Enable Header bar

      Then the header bar widget area (in widgets) will work and you can put any widget (e.g text) in there

      jamie

  22. Super stuff. I love it. Thank you so much. One question if I may: how can I move the standard storefront menu to the topbar? Any guidance would really be appreciated. Thank you so much.

  23. Hi,

    Your topic is realy helpfull thanks ! I used some tips you give but one of them don’t work on my website, i can’t remove the underline from hyperlinks.
