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.

  1. Mega Menus

    I would love the ability to add Mega Menus to themes, whether that be a new part of the framework or a new plugin.

    By Mega Menu, I'm referring to the larger, expanded menus that allow for the multiple columns to pop up during roll over and the insertion of HTML items (images, etc).

    For a direct application, I think Listings is a great first install. Being a directory theme, it that will most likely display LOTS of subcategories and a Mega Menu would make this much more manageable.

      • Make the Column Shortcode Responsive

        Whitelight is a responsive theme, but if you combine it will the column shortcodes it will not be responsive anymore. Those columns are based on %s, but I imagine it would be easy to say, after a certain width, they become full page width.

        • Food Order for Diner

          The ability to place a food order on diner! This way the restaurant can receive the order + money and then deliver it to the customer. So some kind of e-commerce ability!

            This could perhaps be looked into after the initial launch of WooCommerce is settled, given there be enough demand. :)

          • Add "Slides" post type in Function theme

            Function uses blog posts for the slider instead of the "Slides" custom post type like other business themes.

            This was done based on the design spec of the theme.

            Adding an option for a Slide post type would make the theme operate like other business themes.

            • Add Rich Snippet support

              Testing my site - using Whitelight - in Google Web Master tools shows the theme does not support Rich Snippets (https://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=99170). I can't comment on other themes as I haven't checked, but I'll assume for now they're the same - it would be a big help if you could add support for Rich Snippets to your themes.

              These can help with search engine parsing, and allow (for example) Google to display authorship information next to search results. Anther example would be allowing Google to parse and display event information directly in search results - great for themes such…

              • hfeed Warning: At least one field must be set for HatomEntry.

                Would be great if this could be fixed in future:

                Warning: At least one field must be set for HatomEntry.
                Warning: Missing required field “entry-title”.
                Warning: Missing required field “updated”.
                Warning: Missing required hCard “author”.

                • 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…

                  • Font Icons Support in WooThemes and/or Woo Theme Framework

                    In the latest version of Canvas (5.10), the developers replaced some images with icon fonts (from FontAwesome) and by doing included elements of FontAwsome's open-source icon font infrastructure in the theme files.

                    I assumed that meant that I could use other font icons in my theme but it was not the case.

                    Here is why:

                    "We load the font files but not the css. We write our own styles to use the icons we need in the theme.

                    If the user wants to use the markup given in that article to display icons they will need to enqueue that stylesheet…

                    • Update Estate theme to allow filtering results. There is no way to sort the results. PLease fix this.

                      The usability of the Estate theme needs to be updated. You should be able to sort results based on price - low to high, etc...

                                • Looping slider in function theme

                                  The slider in the function theme should loop back to slide one after it is at its end. I was kind of disappointed when I figured this out, of course I probably just assumed it looped and didn't look for the feature before I purchased.

                                  I think looping slide shows should be a standard in sliders.

                                  • Post Expirator for Listings theme

                                    Listings really needs both a Post Expirator feature and management page for listings.

                                    Currently I use the plugin 'Post Expirator' so I can set a time/date for listings to expire. This way if I sell an ad space for the month of December I can schedule to publish it on the 1st and unpublish automatically at midnight at end of December.

                                    The problem with using that plugin is that it's very difficult, unless I keep a separate spreadsheet, to determine which listings are set to expire. If it was incorporated into the theme itself maybe you can make a column…

                                      This was originally posted in the Statua Forum. I was asked to move it here. Most of these are issues that were mentioned early on at the initial release. The theme has a lot of potential but it feels more like a blog with photos than a photo gallery with an optional blog.
                                      Just my Opinion.

                                      Hi,
                                      Wondering if any of the following are possible inclusions in future versions?

                                      Widgets that are Photo oriented.
                                      Tags for Photos
                                      Excerpts for Photos
                                      Ability to Include/Exclude Galleries/Photo Tags on pages using Layouts A, B or C
                                      Control height of layout A to avoid…

                                        One thing Non-Profits do to raise money is to sell products! It would be great to have a matching theme!

                                        • Add WooCommerce to all themes

                                          There are times when the main reason for developing a site isn't e-commerce, but e-commerce can be used on the site to make it better.

                                          There are themes that would be really good for general sites and having the ability to use WooCommerce with them would make them even better. For example, I'd like to use 'FlipFlop' and 'City Guide'.

                                          Looking at it from the other side, many of the WooCommerce themes are great for e-commerce, but not so hot for other uses.

                                          It would be really good if we could select a theme that is right for our site…
