  1. add spam protection to the contact form

    the contact form needs a captcha or some other form of simple spam protection - I had to remove the contact form as only 1 in probably 100 messages was genuine, and it was flooding my inbox

    • Add caption support to woo_image

      With all of the news/magazine themes WooThemes develops you'd think there would be support for pairing captions with those images. As far as I can tell, there isn't any way to do this out of the box.

      • apple-touch-icon.png Support (Apple iOS 'favicon')

        Add support to upload an apple-touch-icon.png and insert the required code so the iOS version of a 'favicon' is utilized instead of requiring header.php edit and separate icon upload.

        • Make prettyPhoto lightbox work with wordpress > 3.5 gallery

          When you activate PrettyPhoto lighbox script under "Dynamic Images > Thumbnail Settings" it does not work on WP 3.5 image galleries. It would be great if you could fix that, otherwise one needs to install an additional lightbox scripts which bloats up the website.

            • Improve the WooFramework to be more child-theme friendly

              I would really like to improve the woo framework more child-theme friendly. My first Suggestion is to add a filter to the stylesheet reader function in theme-options.php, so that child theme developers could change the directory where woo framework is looking for it styles. While doing so, child-theme developers could stay to best practice and create a folder "styles" in the child-theme directory and creae their own set of styles which then be selectable via theme-option panel in the backend.

              //Stylesheets Reader
              $alt_stylesheet_path = get_template_directory() . '/styles/';

              In this way child themes authors should be able to hook in via…

              • Allow members to post reviews for WooCommerce Extensions

                It's high time Woo enabled the review functionality for WooCommerce Extensions at the sales site. It would be so useful to read what other users are experiencing when using extensions and help build the overall sense of community. This is especially crucial for third party extensions.

                • Enable WooFramework to select your child-themes alternative colors in WooOptions

                  WooThemes recommend to use child-themes to customize themes. Most of your themes offer to select your themes alternative color scheme in Theme Options.

                  You could create your own /style folder with alternative colors in the child-themes directory, however WooFramework will not recognize your custom stylesheets.

                  I guess it should be pretty simple to code this kind of check it into the woo_output_alt_stylesheet function in functions/admin-setup.php

                  This would make child-themes even more reasonable! Thanks guys!

                  • Subscribe/Connect Widget with Multiple Styles

                    The standard Woo Social Media icons are pretty outdated looking... It would be awesome if we could choose from different style icons. I think a Subscribe/Connect widget with different styles would be a pretty awesome addition to WooDojo.

                    It would also be great if we had the option to disable the title, and could specify whether the icons should be floated left or right, etc..

                      • A setting in wooframework for fixing/sticking menu/header to top of page (a la bootstrap)

                        I recently read an article on integrating Canvas with bootstrap to get fixed top of page menus. I'd like the functionality in wooframework to select whether or not a menu/logo/header area is fixed to the top or a page (think zendesk, twitter, facebook sites).

                        • Related Posts Shortcode Useable on Pages as well as Posts

                          I was trying to use the related posts short code on a clients site and found that this can only be done on posts and not currently pages.

                          I think it would be great if there was an option to use it on pages and choose either a tag to pull the related posts with or post category to pull the related posts from so that you can have a static page and then have this show related news feed information to the bottom.

                          I realise there are plugins that do this, but it would seem a great feature to…

                          • More out the box options - such as magazine layout for multiple categories,

                            It would be great if the Magazine layout for example could be used more that once without having to write hundres of lines of code.

                            I'd also like the ability to disable comments and post-meta from specific categories.

                            Some websites are more than just a blog but currently it seems very limited as to what can be done in Woothemes without a huge amount of custom code. Checkout Joomla's K2 see the options in there :)

                            • Pull through Disqus comments into Woo Tabs' "Comments" Tab

                              Hi guys,

                              I love the Woo Tabs in my sidebar, but the Comments section doesn't fetch any of the latest comments from Disqus. Is this possible? It works great with native WordPress comments, but I find Disqus better for engagement.

                              Thanks

                              Jack

                              • Emails for New user accounts created using WooCommerce are not verified

                                When a customer uses our website built on WooCommerce the user account created uses email address and this address is never verified. The typical user experience during eCommerce checkout is that user will receive an activation email. This flow validates email address automatically and avoids spam email accounts. Not sure why such a basic feature is not already part of WooCommerce.

                                • Add support for colorpicker (and other) field types in woothemes_metabox_create_fields

                                  The woo_add_metaboxes allows you to add additional custom fields to post types. Unlike the general settings, there's no support for a colorpicker. (Or, for that matter, borders, fonts, and so on, all available now on the general settings when you extend those.) Since the code is already written in one part of the Framework, how about making it available in this other part of the Framework?

                                  • Move "Reset All Theme Options"

                                    I would love for "Reset" to be removed from Theme Options. It could be made available in the Woo submenu instead (where Theme Options, Framework Settings, etc. are). I had a client accidentally hit Reset this morning :-(

                                    • Pre-Fill Postage Country and Checkout Country using GEO IP

                                      If I get an international customer, he needs to go through this process in order to make a sale:

                                      -Add the product to the shopping cart
                                      -Find his country in the shopping cart drop down (which has over 100's of countries) in order to estimate his postage cost
                                      -Go to the checkout, and find his country again in the checkout country dropdown (which has over 100's of countries).
                                      -Make his payment

                                      What would be great is if we could have the ability to:

                                      Pre-select the users country based on his IP address (You can use the free maxmind geo-location database)…

                                      • Custom Layout Manager (Like Sidebar and Menu Managers)

                                        Could be a plugin like sidebars were abstracted from the framework. We could create any number of 1,2 and 3 column layouts all with varying widths.

                                        • woo_post_nav shortcode

                                          Just a suggestion...

                                          I thought it might be nice if we could get the woo_post_nav in a shortcode so we have more flexibility in how we apply it to our themes.

                                          Is there a place for suggestions, This may not be the place to suggest.

                                          Thanks!

                                            This is the right place. :)

                                            We’ll see how demand goes for this, all the while you can edit the theme files to your need.
