PHP Question

Replacing Image on Woocommerce Shop Page using hooks

I'm trying to use hooks to remove the product thumbnail from the shop/catalog page in Woocommerce and then replace it with my own custom image.

works as expected and displays the text, but the
does not remove the product thumbnail.
Here is the page related web site page.

What I am doing wrong?

Below is the code I'm using:

// Remove product images from the shop loop
remove_action( 'woocommerce_before_shop_loop_item_title', 'woocommerce_template_loop_product_thumbnail', 10 );

//Add custom code to replace product thumbnail
add_action( 'woocommerce_before_shop_loop_item_title', 'woocommerce_template_loop_product_thumb', 10 );

if ( ! function_exists( 'woocommerce_template_loop_product_thumb' ) ) {
function woocommerce_template_loop_product_thumb() {
echo "testing";


You just need to fire this using woocommerce_init hook and this way it just works.

Here is the code:

function replacing_template_loop_product_thumbnail() {
    // Remove product images from the shop loop
    remove_action( 'woocommerce_before_shop_loop_item_title', 'woocommerce_template_loop_product_thumbnail', 10 );
    // Adding something instead
    function wc_template_loop_product_replaced_thumb() {
        echo "TEST TEST";
    add_action( 'woocommerce_before_shop_loop_item_title', 'wc_template_loop_product_replaced_thumb', 10 );
add_action( 'woocommerce_init', 'replacing_template_loop_product_thumbnail');

This code goes in function.php file of your active child theme (or theme) or also in any plugin file.

This code is tested and fully functional.
