    Thanks.

  4. Hi, Like this, but miss function to adjust number of columns in upsells and related products under single product pages. I´m stuck here. Have you got any suggestions? Woocommerce Internet based information won´t work. Have tried a lot.

    Best Regards
    JA.

  5. Looking for a way to change the “View your shopping cart” icon on the right side of the menu bar. We have Storefront Pro but I don’t see any way to change that icon.

  6. Hi, I am using Storefront, and have placed an image in the Below Header widget. That image is not centering with the product categories below it. How do I fix that?

  7. It would be fantastic to see an option for dropping header components by page so as to retain consistent branding (the logo) but still go distraction free (nix menu and the Woocommerce cart bits) through the cart and checkout process.
