Theme Ideas

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

How can we improve WooThemes themes?

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 support and comment on it.

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

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

  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.

      • 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…

            • 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!

              • 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).

                • 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..

                  • 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

                    • 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…

                      • 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?

                          I'm having a hard time translating and maintaining some translations of themes and plugins.
                          Can we create public (or private) groups to translate woo products?
                          Theres some sites (poeditor.com and https://www.transifex.com) to manage all the translations

                            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.

                              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.

                              • Default custom custom typography should be identical to theme defaults

                                One of the most useful features in the theme options is custom typography. It turns something that is impossible for non-web design/developer folks into something that is possible. It's HUGE.

                                So why is it, I have always wondered, that when you activate custom typography, it changes many if not all of the fonts on the site simultaneously.

                                This is absolutely, patently counterintuitive. It is also confusing as hell if you're not comfortable in the WP environment. It feels like you just BROKE the site.

                                What makes sense (not from a coding perspective but from a user perspective) is to activate…

                                  • Support Lazy Load plugin

                                    Support Lazy Load to improve page load time (without affecting SEO). Lazy Load only loads images that are visible to the visitor:
                                    http://wordpress.org/plugins/lazy-load/

                                    Unfortunately Lazy Load did not work out-of-the-box with my author profile below posts and also fails with the WooThemes shortcode social_icon from:
                                    http://docs.woothemes.com/document/shortcodes/

                                    These images didn't load at all. Other images load fine.

                                    Might have something to do with the "circle effect" over these images (Canvas theme). WooThemes considers it a 3th party issue but also suggested to drop a line here for integration.

                                    Would be nice if we could find out what stops the images from…

                                    • Have the shortcodes compatible with other themes

                                      I am using another theme from two years, and i was using shortcodes on it. If i switch to Woothemes, there are some shortcodes that are equal so it will broke my old posts style. If the shortcodes of the theme had an unique woothemes names, they wont clash with other themes shortcodes so we can use both.

                                      • Background images on a business page

                                        Include a Shortcode to add different background images on a business page, so text can be written on top of the image. When you are writing a long page it would help to break it up

                                        Thanks!!

                                        • Add accesskeys / keyboard shortcuts to theme settings so user can save settings without a mouse or tabbing through everything.

                                          With the changes to the framework and the way theme settings are managed, we need a quick way to modify theme settings and save.

                                          Adding a keyboard shortcut would improve setup workflow tremendously. Often one has to go in to the settings to make a quick adjustment, like a font size, and then you have to scroll to the bottom of the page and click save. Considering these repetitive motions, it would be useful to have a keyboard shortcut for submitting the form after a change.

                                          Beyond the ergonomic improvement, setting an accesskey will improve the settings page for common…
