Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » woocommerce storefront problem

  • Resolved todsky


    Hi people. For some reason there are things appearing on my home page that I don’t want, and I don’t know how to get rid of them. SHOP BY CATEGORY, NEW IN, WE RECOMMEND, ON SALE and BESTSELLERS are all appearing with their accompanying images. Does anyone know how to get those off the page? Please keep in mind I have no programming skills whatsoever. I am using Woocommerce Storefront theme.

    Here is the link to the page:

    Thank-you very much!

    Thank you for the system report but whatever is wrong doesn’t stand out for me.

    WooCommerce and Storefront on their own can’t do that, so the effect must be coming from one of your other plugins. Temporarily deactivate all the other plugins. That should fix it, then put the plugins back one-by-one and test to try to identify which plugin is causing the additional sections.

    Homepage Control 😉

    Thanks Lorro, I’ll try deactivating the plugins.

    Thread Starter todsky


    Brad, what do you mean ‘Homepage Control’?

    I think Brad could be referring to this plugin:

    There’s a similar plugin called “Storefront Homepage Extra Sections”, though I don’t see either in your list of plugins.

    The Homepage Control extension for storefront can be used to turn off or on some of the sections you mention on your homepage

    Thread Starter todsky


    Ah, I understand. And no, I don’t have either of those homepage plugins. I’ll try plugin deactivation tomorrow, see how that goes.

    Thread Starter todsky


    Well, I found the plugin that is causing the problem, and it’s the Woocommerce Services plugin. When it’s deactivated the unwanted images disappear. Unfortunately, so does my ability to sell products. Any suggestions?

    Thread Starter todsky


    Well, I installed Homepage Control, and that did the job! I didn’t realize that a new plugin would deal with an existing issue. Thank-you all! 🙂
