General Ideas

Got a WooCommerce idea? We have a separate forum for WooCommerce.

How can we improve WooThemes?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Booking calendar plugin

    It would be so useful to have a booking calendar plugin that can be used on any theme. You're already halfway there with Diner's reservation bookings. It would be great to see something that can be used either for reservations (hotel, restaurant), or service bookings (consulting, spa)

    There are a few available plugins like this for Wordpress, but I haven't found one that is particularly good. The Woo team could definitely build a superior plugin.

      • Testimonials - random rotatation - enhance testimonial freshness

        For the testimonials plug in it would be great to have the option for the testimonials to rotate randomly when the page is refreshed

        For example

        I have set up 9 testimonials and set to display 3 maximum, I'd like those to change so that when a customer goes through the site they are seeing different testimonials as they look at different product pages.

        My testimonials are generic about our holidays rather than focussed on one holiday (product)

        Currently the only way to do this is to set up a new widget area for every product page and specify a…

        • Please add event management as a plugin so any theme can have an event calendar for site customers to see and even add to.

          I'd really like to be able to set up an event and have clients schedule a timeslot and pay for a service in that timeslot.

          • Call to Action shortcode or content area for Canvas

            Please add a 'Promotional Banner Module' as seen in Hustle [http://demo2.woothemes.com/?name=hustle] for Canvas. With that, the ability to order, reorder modules. That would be WOO-tastic! Thank you for your consideration :)

            • 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)…

              • Photo proofing plugin

                I could really use a photo proofing plugin and I know there is a lot of demand for this after searching for a long time. It should be possible for the photographers clients to log in and pick there favorites from a photo session and leave comments for the retoucher. The possibility to pay for a selection to print or download the files.

                • Flexslider: Add Options to Allow Custom, Separate Placement of Next/Prev Links

                  Option 1 (Good): Add a couple of options so a developer can choose which elements the prev & next links should be populated inside of.

                  Example:

                  $('.flexslider').flexslider({
                  prev: 'li.prev',
                  next: 'li.next'
                  )};

                  Option 2 (Better): Allow the prev/next links to be auto-placed based on pre-defined class names.

                  Example:

                  <ul>
                  <li><a href="#" class="flexslider-prev">Previous</a></li>
                  <li><a href="#">Slide 1</a></li>
                  <li><a href="#">Slide 2</a></li>
                  <li><a href="#">Slide 3</a></li>
                  <li><a href="#" class="flexslider-next">Next</a></li>
                  </ul>

                  Option 3 (Best): allow the developer to specify which elements should be used as the Previous and Next links. Basically the same as Option 1, except instead of the links being generated inside the selected…

                  • Create a Theme Manager plugin for Multisite

                    For those club members using WP Multisite, it's quite tedious to have to update WooThemes manually.

                    How about a "theme manager" plugin like this one?
                    http://shooterthemes.com/plugin/

                    Once you have installed the plugin and signed in with your Woo credentials, you would automatically be notified when an update to the WooThemes you have installed is available.

                    To take it one step further, how about an auto-upgrade feature?

                    Then, to really make it awesome, how about the ability to see new WooThemes as soon as they’re released?

                    • Implement the "Content Builder" from Listings theme as a plugin

                      This is a really nice tool for creating custom taxonomies.

                      • featured

                        Add a widget which enables us to easily display posts in various forms/layouts on the homepage/sidebars:

                        1 column, 2 column, small/medium/large thumbnail, post list below big thumbnail, offset option, sort/order by settings etc.

                        The "Genesis Featured Posts widget Amplified" (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/genesis-featured-widget-amplified/) is a great example for such a widget.

                          • WooThemes Advertising Plugin

                            Similar to OIOpublisher or WPAdCenter, I think WooThemes should release a plugin that allows WooThemes to offer better advertising/ tracking capabilities. This would then be integrated across all themes similar to the Woo Menus/ Woo Sidebar features that were added.

                            • Lead Capture Widget/Plugin - Which integrates with iContact, MailChimp, Awebber, GetResponse etc, etc

                              I would like to have a plugin / widget area that can be used for lead capture purposes. Collecting a visitors email or email and name.

                              Allow us (user) to choose or upload a custom submit/sign up button.

                              The plugin should also integrate with all the major email auto-responder providers such as:

                              iContact
                              Awebber
                              MailChimp
                              GetResponse
                              InfusionSoft
                              Constant Contact
                              Etc, etc.

                              Also, being able to add a custom text title and/or a custom title image would be great

                                • WooSidebars to add as well as replace.

                                  Hi,

                                  WooSidebars is great. Sometimes I just need to add a widget for certain pages. So instead of replicating the entire rosta of widgets assigned to primary. Perhaps it would be better to have the ability to have the new widget just add the additional widgets and not replace.

                                  For instance. I could have a new widget area called WooCommerce. Then set the parameters so when I am on a WooCommerce page (product page, category page etc..) It adds the widgets from this widget area in addition to the primary widgets. These widgets would probably be the cart widget etc..

                                  • Continuity Program Management for Direct Response Marketers (Auto-Ship/Auto-Bill)

                                    Marketers that offer a continuity program where a customer is enrolled in an auto ship program, need specialized tools for managing these programs and need to allow the customer to manage their own programs as well. Here are some features that would be extremely helpful in a plugin, or core functionality, to anyone offering this type of continuity program:

                                    Self-Service customer management interface allowing the customer to :
                                    1) Increase/decrease/add products to a continuity program
                                    2) change the billing date of the program or the date their credit card is charged.
                                    3) adjust the shipping date for the monthly recurring…

                                    • WooSidebars for multiple pages

                                      Just a quick suggestion for WooSidebars. On large WordPress sites with lots of pages (I frequently do sites with more than 200 pages) it would be incredibly useful to have a paginated list of pages that retain the Page order and hierarchy from WordPress.

                                      Otherwise, it's almost impossible to find all of the pages you want to assign a sidebar to, especially when multiple sub-pages have the same name, but are nested under different parent pages.

                                      Thanks!

                                      Eric

                                      • Add aweber to subscribe option

                                        Mailchimp is popular but aweber is more popular and same with other autoresponders. would be great to say have a drop down option or feature so we can choose from all the popular ones.

                                        • Add 'by categories' or 'by tag' to the POST option of woo - post type slideshow

                                          Widgetized Homepage option to filter posts from different categories or tags in separate 'woo - post type slideshow' widget would make this widget so much more powerful. .....just as it is done in the 'woo - embed/video widget'
