  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.

    • 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

        • Corporate Pricing Table & Testimonial Shortcodes

          Love the recent upgrades to the Woo shortcodes, but the two mentioned shortcodes is something I feel is missing to make the collection "complete"

          Example of how it could be done can be found on this page:

          http://www.elegantthemes.com/preview/TheProfessional/shortcodes/

          Another option that could be an idea is to add a very flexible shortcode that can be edited in the options panel -- a shortcode to add a html code. an example of how this could be used is to have different signup forms and/or info boxes custom created in the options panel, and then just add the code where they`re wanted…

          • WooCommerce / Physical Store Integration System

            My current client is thinking of dropping their website entirely due to problems with inventory management. They currently are using a Wordpress site with WooCommerce. All of their inventory is listed on the website and is sold in their physical store. The problem is that when they sell items in-store, the products need to be adjusted separately in WooCommerce. I am looking for a single system that will integrate POS, inventory management, and bookkeeping in the physical store and on the website.

            In fact, I have had potential clients who either chose not to have a website or dropped their…

                • >> 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.

                  • Add Apple Pay support to WooCommerce

                    It's clear that Apple Pay is going to be a must-have for our web stores.

                    Please add support for Apple Pay to WooCommerce ASAP.

                    Thanks!

                      • 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)…

                        • Include Parallax image scrolling

                          Here’s a big request for most Canvas users (including me).. for the theme to include Parallax image scrolling to it. Such as a area at the top under the menu/logo/header, or (as well) in the head itself). That’s one thing I would love added to it!

                          • Video embed in Canvas Slider

                            To get the business slider to work more like the Simplicity slider where you can have video in a slide that actually looks like it's part of the layout rather than shoehorned in there...

                            • 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.

                                  While the Subscribe and Connect is a great idea it's often doesn't keep up with the fickleness of the Internet. Look how many ideas and requests that have been made here related to it.

                                  Today a lot of users want to add Pinterest, Vimeo, and Yelp. Tomorrow it'll be some other new service that's trending. Many could probably care less if Delicious and/or Flickr was still in there or not.

                                  There will always be some service missing or irrelevant for some. So optionally provide a way for us to add new and custom linked icons, reorder them, etc through the…

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

                                    • Sticky Footer for Canvas

                                      Sticky Footer option for Full Width layout in Canvas.
                                      Thanks!

                                      • print shipping label

                                        I cant believe the only way to ship products is to copy customers details into word then print.

                                        This must be a very useful amendment.
                                        Please

                                        • Subscription: Free trail without cc needed; ask for creditcard/paypal when free trail ends, not upfront

                                          I'm using WooCommerce and Subscriptions to sell access to premium content. Currently its configured with a 30-day free trial. So users sign up, enter their credit card, and as long as they don't cancel before the end of the trial, we ping them.

                                          I'd like to move the credit card entry to the end of the free trial. In other words, people would sign up, have access for 30 days, then have to enter their card to continue getting access. Is this an easy thing to do in WooCommerce, or do I need to do some work outside of WooCommerce…
