Support » Theme: Storefront » Feature Image Not Displaying After Latest Update

  • After the latest update my feature image is no longer displaying on my [ redundant link removed ]

    This problem just came out of nowhere. Of-course the feature image is selected in the page editor sidebar.

    I’ve already troubleshot by disabling plugins. And switched to the
    Twenty Nineteen theme where it appears as expected. But, it won’t load for Storefront, with or without the child theme active.

    Please do advise!

    @sri-shunyata I’ve removed your link. Just use the link field. When you post as you did, you come across as a spammer. You don’t want to do that, do you?



    Hi there,

    To get a better understanding of how your store is configured, please share a copy of your system status report here. You can find that under WooCommerce > System Status πŸ™‚


    @jdembowski Oppsβ€” My Bad! Thanks for alerting me to the ‘live url spam flag’ I’ll keep that in mind next time.

    @riaanknoetze Great Hintβ€” I looked through the status report and addressed any red alerts that I could. But, even that didn’t helpβ€” The Feature Image Display problem remains unresolved.

    I didn’t know what parts of the report that were Germain to you. So, I’ve copy the entire System Report for you below.

    Hi Sri,

    Thanks for including that system status report – it helped a great deal!

    Just to confirm: Are you having difficulty with featured product images or just a single featured image on a specific page? Moreover, are you experiencing the same thing after deactivating Jetpack’s lazy loading of images and the image optimisation modules?

    Finally, if the issue persists even after running the tests above, please open a support ticket over at since Pharmacy is one of Woo’s premium themes.


    @riaanknoetze β€” Thanks for taking the time and trying to helpβ€” much appreciated.

    Unfortunately, even after disabling Jetpack’s Image (speed) Optimization the problem and clearing my cache the problem still persists. I’m also no longer subscribing to the Pharmacy Child-Theme and just haven’t had the time to set up my own child theme. So, I’m unable to open a support ticket.

    As I pointed out though, the problem is Storefront related, because it persists even when the Child-theme is deactivated.

    I can’t be sure if there is a problem with ‘featured product images’ because I’m not using any. The featured image on the home page, the one that is problematic, is just a normal ‘featured image’.

    I could use a Image widget instead of a feature image, but that would be a lot of extra work, and not really address the issueβ€” whatever the heck it is.

    Please do advise is you have any future suggestions. I’ve tried everything that I can think of and am at my wits end.

    And, being that feature image functionality is working properly on WP’s Twenty Nineteen theme, the problem doesn’t appear to be host related.




    I’ve just cross-tested thuat on my local installation and wasn’t able to replicate the same thing while running Pharmacy 2.0.14 and Storefront 2.5. On my side, the featured image does seem to work as expected:

    Link to image:

    It looks like whatever is happening is limited to your site only and might need closer scrutiny by a web developer.

    As a last-ditch attempt to get to the bottom of that, have you tried deactivating plugins that might cause a conflict, e.g.

    • Code Snippets
    • Simple Custom CSS and JS PRO
    • SVG Support
