Storefront 2.3.1 release notes

Here’s what’s changed pulled directly from the changelog:

* Feature - Add support for GDPR features soon to be introduced in WordPress 4.9.6.

  1. Hi There,

    the new update actually made some of my icons disappear. my site doesn’t show search and shoppingcart icon on mobile devices! What can I do?

    1. I just checked your site in a mobile device and the icons are definitively showing up.

      If you believe there’s still an problem here, please open a new issue in GitHub –

      1. Hi Tiago,

        thats true, I fixed the problem a couple hours later. I got some icons back because I installed the Better Font Awesome plugin and within this plugin I checked the following option: “Attempt to remove Font Awesome CSS and shortcodes added by other plugins and themes.” After that I now have icons again. Though I think they are not the ones storefront actually meant to use.

        I mention that for further troubleshoots if other people are facing the same problems. Generally I like storefront a lot and love to use it.

    Hi, i just noticed a problem after updating my storefront to 2.3.1. I used to have the plugin called (Storefront Sticky Add to Cart), but its been deactivated for many months now, and after i updated to 2.3.1 it magically became active again. I have it as a deactivated plugin at this moment, i also deleted it and it still showed like it was there and working. I know its this plugin because when i used google inspect tool and highlight the Sticky Add to Cart banner when it pops up it shows it is coming from that plugin. This problem started happening after i updated to 2.3.1 so i am thinking its the update problem, can you please help?

    P.S this only occurs on PC and not on mobile,

    Thank you

    1. Since Storefront 2.3, Sticky Add-To-Cart and Product Pagination are included in the theme.

      You can deactivate this functionality in Customizer > Product Page.
