  1. Carousel slideshow type

    It would be great if there was a carousel slideshow type in the default options. Like this: http://sorgalla.com/projects/jcarousel/examples/static_simple.html

    • Show caption and title of an image in the slideshow

      It would be great if the caption and/or the title of an image can displayed in a layer over/under the picture in the slide show

        • Order Attachment Slides by Menu Order

          I mostly use the Attachment slideshow functionality from WooSlider to automatically grab the images attached to a page and create a slideshow. It would be nice if the default Wordpress drag-and-drop reordering could be used to change the order of the slides. I temporarily added this functionality by editing the query in class-wooslider-sliders.php to include the "orderby" => "menu_order" parameter.

          • More of the options of Flex Slider

            Flex slider had more custom options for how the thumbnail nav worked (carousel and its own direction navs).

            Plus some easier to manage css would be good-- auto adjust thumbnail margins, opacity, etc.)

            • Drag and drop ordering of the slides.

              When viewing the list of all the slides. Being able to just drag and drop the order would make it much easier to know what slides appear when

              • Enable the content layout options for Slide and Gallery slides

                It would be great if you could have the 'slide' content positioned on the left, right, bottom of the slider (like the post slides do). Instead of having to hard code the layout into the WYIWYG editor

                  We are exploring adding similar functionality to optionally display the captions of images in the “attached images” slideshow type.

                  Regarding the “slides” slideshow type, this isn’t the slideshow type’s intention. The intention of the “slides” slideshow type is for the WYSIWYG editor to be a blank canvas, if you will, for each of the slides. The “Featured Image”, in this case, is used purely for the “thumbnails” pagination, at this stage.

                  We are exploring other avenues for where this image can be put to use as well. :)

                • WooSlider - Vertical thumbnails

                  It would be useful to have the possibility to have the thumbnails verticcaly displayed to one side of the slideshow, instead of just below the slideshow.

                  • Featured carousel

                    I'd like to display five or six thumbnail-sized images across the page, all at once. People could click on one and it would send them to that post.

                    I am using Canvas, WooSlider, WooCommerce, Groups, Groups WooCommerce.

                    I've dug through quite a few of the offerings from other entities. I have not yet found anything within shooting distance of the high quality that is typical of the work by WooThemes.

                    • Customization options to change the look and better online documentation for non-professional web developers

                      I purchased four different sliders this week to test them all out. Other sliders like RivaSlider etc all have nice easy customization for changing the overall look of the slider. Things like changing or removing the padding, the border or drop-shadow etc etc.

                      Overall I've been less than impressed. It's the most expensive option that I purchased and in fact has the least options and by far the worse online documentation. Already I've had to contact support with tickets, and use Bountify to get someone else to help me with it. I needed none of those with the other options…

                      • Make a Slideshow Type for Pages with a shortcode option to list page/post IDs. We could mix pages and posts.

                        Make a Slideshow Type for Pages with a shortcode option to list page/post IDs. We could mix pages and posts, including custom post types. And the link in the slider would link to the full page/post.

                          • Amount of items in a carousel

                            It would be great to have control over the minimum and maximum amount of items in the backend settings, by shortcode or template tags, to create more individual carousels. Actually there are only three items shown in a carousel and stretched automatically to fill the slide's with.

                              • Replaced the "featured Slider" of existing themes

                                Can someone provide instructions to replace the featured slider in say, the woostore theme with this slider? The existing slider on the homepage is very slow to load even after smashing the image file size and this slider looks much nicer.

                                If you had easy instructions I would buy it to replace the existing slider.

                                Or can woothemes update the theme to have this slider :)

                                    • WooSlider Vertical Thumbnail Nav

                                      Adding vertical thumbnail navigation to WooSlider would add a new dimension to layout possibilities. Located to the left or right of the slides, show title on hover. See screenshot at: http://bit.ly/133wpW5

                                      Although a plugin can do this with some hacks (above screen is Canvas), eliminate third-party conflicts by including it in WooSlider! This would save time in trying to fix conflicts, minimise multiple scripts running, and helps differentiate WooSlider to theme built-in sliders.

                                      • Video is 100 times more informative than images with text.

                                        WooSlider has no options for selecting a video player, its' skins, resolution or size, etc..

                                        WooSlider needs many more options for presenting video in an attractive fashion.

                                        • Additional paging options

                                          In addition to dots and thumbnails for paging, how about some options.

                                          I'm implementing a design that showcases key products in the slider and would benefit from having the product names as clickable paging, perhaps using a custom field of the slide, or even the alt tag of the image.
