  1. Complete orders with a barcode scanner

    Hi all.
    I would really like to get this feature for woocommerce. I think that's it - so people can use the woocommerce features than magento.

    1: Every time you print out a invoice, it shall contain a uniq barcode
    2: When scanning the barcode, it completes the order / ships the order.

    3: You shall scan the order using a barcode scanner, and it shall be easy, like, it inputs the barcode numbers into a textfield(with a command on) - then it just completes orders.

    Conditions:
    1) It shall check if the order already is shipped (turn red)
    2)…

      • Scale slider images in For The Cause to match the image's width and height

        The behavior you guys chose for the image is for it to sometimes stretch to fill all of the horizontal space (like the way it is at 1920 pixels wide) and sometimes the width stops scaling and you start cropping the side (like at 1200 pixes wide).

        The vertical space seems to be limited to 350px, so if the image is stretched (or shrunk) you don't get to see the whole thing.
        I'm guessing that most, if not all, users would get a much better benefit from having the image stretch in width and height, and have the rest of…

        • >> sticky menu for canvas <<

          Hey guys,

          Since twitter starting to use bootstrap the sticky menu has become very popular option. Many wordpress themes, including 2 of yours already have it. And i read a couple of UX articles really siting their benefits...

          I would love the option to turn it on or off.

          I have hacked this in for 2 websites already but it is a bit tricky with the updates.

          • Product Vendors - See, process and complete their own orders

            I really need the vendors to see, process and complete their own orders.

            They should not be able to see the other vendors' orders!

            • Eliminate Duplicate Entries in Gravity Forms

              Eliminate Duplicate Entries in Gravity Forms. When you use WooCommerce and Gravity Forms Add On, a duplicate entry is created in Gravity Forms. This should be eliminated.

              • Canvas - full width Magazine slider

                At 5.5 their is only the possibility to set the full width slider on the business layout. I think it would be quiet nice to get the same function on magazine layout.

                • Product Add-ons Limit Upload Size & Only Allow Certain Filetype Extensions

                  With the Product Add-ons extension there is an extreme security flaw not being able to specify what filetype extensions to be allowed as uploads. Also setting up a max upload size would be beneficial. Currently its default upload size is whatever is specified in the php.ini. So if someone is unable to change that or needs it to to have a 100mb upload limit for personal uploads, then the customers or hackers can flood your server with large files as well as any filetype they want!

                  This should be a high priority as it is a very popular extension!

                  • Change the words on the bottom right of the Themes: "Designed by Woo Themes"

                    Reason: Web Designers doing"Business" using Woo Themes will of course delete the word Designed by Woo Themes as they do not want their Client to think that their website was Designed by someone other than their Web Design Company.
                    Sorry if the Woo Theme Designers feel left out.. But this is the reality: if your company Woo just eliminates the word Designed from “Designed by Woo Themes” there will be a better chance for the Woo Logo to remain on all of the Websites “out there” using your Themes and your link “Woo Themes” will not be deleted.
                    Thanks for…

                      • Bundled Products - provide a way to find all Bundles that contain a given Product

                        Product Bundles are useful, but it's an incomplete solution. We need to be able to list all Bundles that contain a given Product. More specifically, on the single post view of a specific Product, we want to upsell the customer to one of the Bundles we offer that include the Product they're looking at. Bonus points if there is an EFFICIENT way to do this (other than running through all Products, checking if it is a Bundle, running through its components looking for a match, lather rinse repeat).

                          Woocommerce support - i know sounds like a fantasy world. But I've been through all documentation and faq's and still need support. So how do I get it? Oh I can't... because the website tells me I have to buy a product before I can request it.

                                  It should be possible to make a Gift Certificate Product a Subscription product. The scenario is that someone buys a subscription that entitles them to one X and 10 Y per month, and the system automatically handles their balance, which can be applied at checkout.

                                  • Canvas Widgets - Different Styling

                                    It would be great if you could specify different styling for the header widget and footer widgets as you don't always want them to look the same as the sidebar widgets.

                                    On a similar note, it would be great to able to add colour to the columns the widgets are in. I found a hack but it would be great it was an option

                                    • Add index keys to $options array

                                      If the theme options array had index keys, then specific options could be more easily unset/disabled via child themes using the woo_options_add ( $options ) function. Currently, I have to do some recursive array searching.

                                      However, if the array was structured like so:

                                      $options['alt-stylesheet'] = array( 'name' => __( 'Theme Stylesheet', 'woothemes' ),
                                      'desc' => __( 'Select your themes alternative color scheme.', 'woothemes' ),
                                      'id' => $shortname . '_alt_stylesheet',
                                      'std' => 'default.css',
                                      'type' => 'select',
                                      'options' => $alt_stylesheets );

                                      Then a child theme could unset this option simply

                                      unset( $options['alt-stylesheet' ] );

                                      This shouldn't have any back-compat issues either.

                                      • Scrollider search widget should use locate_template()

                                        If in the search widget's widget() method you replace :

                                        `
                                        include( get_template_directory() . '/search-form.php' );
                                        `

                                        with

                                        `
                                        locate_template( 'search-form.php', true );
                                        `

                                        then child themes can override the search form without needing to hack the widget, or re-load the widget.

                                        • Canvas BbPress and BuddyPress support is needed

                                          Frankly speaking, woothemes can't keep declining requests for Buddypress and BBpress by saying "they are not part of our core focus / expertise." The industry needs a well designed themes for Buddypress and Bbpress from a leaders like you, it's not practical to decline it while the market is rapidly grow and such solution is unavailable through you.
