  1. Add 1 on 1 mentoring to Sensei

    Would like to add 1 on 1 mentoring to our site. The messaging platform with sensei would work great for this, but I would like our students to be able to message us without a lesson. The mentoring would not include videos, only messaging and critiquing. Possibly being able to share files and images.

    • Note taking for Students

      It would be great that with Sensei a student could take notes while in the lesson. It could be similar to the Quiz setup. There would be a paragraph of text and below that a multiple line text box (same as quiz box) and Admin can decide if there needs to be a text box after each paragraph and so on. The student would be able to save their place, just like the quiz, and come back and edit/add to it, just like the quiz. Obviously the notes would be user specific. This would be a huge feature for us,…

      • Conflict & Error Notifications!

        If there are issues or updates that effectively break my site I would like to be notified asap by email? rather than find out for myself by way of NON SALES / SALES GRINDING TO A HALT so I can do everything possible to rectify the situation.

        • Product Vendors - Option for Vendor to mange order status

          The product vendors plugin should have options for vendors to manage and update the status of the order. The site admin should be able to configure this setting - Vendors to see orders and manage orders.

          Vendors should be able to change the order status to processing and then complete.

          • Sensei: Make Course active again when a new Lesson is added

            There may be many courses where an instructor will be adding lessons to the course over the length of the course. The suggestion is to make the Course refresh back to Active Courses when a new lesson is added. Currently the courses go to Completed Courses in the dashboard and stay there when a new unit is added.

            • Add shipping tax override

              We are having an issue with taxes and the Table Shipping rates plugin. Our store is located in Canada. Under Canadian law, we have to apply tax to the products we sell within Canada and those taxes will vary from province to province. However, the tax we are charged on shipping (no matter where in the world we ship) is a constant percentage. It would be useful in a future version of the plugin to be able to set an optional tax rate for each shipping zone.

              I will provide 3 examples to clearly outline the issue we are experiencing:

              • Add text-size-adjust: 100%; to your themes

                I've hated seeing my Canvas powered sites balloon the font size on mobile devices when switching from portrait to landscape. Since I highly customize Canvas with Child Themes, when I found this CSS command, I've started plugging the following in to my websites and I'm inlove with the text saying the same size. Can this start getting implemented on to the sites?

                html {
                -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;
                -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;
                }

                  • custom slider navigation

                    In the Woo slider plugin (or in the slider included with business template with Canvas), I'd like to be able to replace the dot navigation at the bottom of the slider with custom buttons/links for each slide. For example, the buttons would say "Intro", "What we do", "How we work","Our impact". That way, the user could jump between the slides based on interest, at will, with a sense of what each slide contains.

                    • EU VAT Number 2.0.0: This is a B2B tool, so keep the B2B functions!

                      EU VAT Number is a B2B thing, and the extension "EU VAT Number" used to be a B2B tool. So keep the B2B functions! WooThemes has repurposed the tool to meet the needs of B2C service providers that makes it less useful to B2B.

                      In the new version of the plugin, WooThemes has added a great function (reject orders when no valid EU VAT No. is provided) that gives us B2B service providers finally control to accept only B2B orders from EU businesses.

                      But they have also removed an essential function. The former extension version distinguished between:

                      • Add scrollbar capability to Woocommerce widgets (or at least Ajax Layered Navigation plugin)

                        I think it would be awesome if you could add a scrollbar feature to the Ajax Layered Navigation plugin that you have or other extensions used for filtering products on shop pages. I have over 5000 products which use different attributes (and many values within those attributes), so it looks pretty rough when there's widgets that are super long. I just want to have better UX options on these types of plugins. Ajax Layered Navigation and Brands extensions can both use this.

                        Thanks in advance!

                          it's sort of like crowd funding BUT you don't have perks you have registrants that pay to register to participate and go out and gather donations to meet the over all goal of the campaign... (( here is an example of a registrant page on…

                            • Bookings - add a price breakdown before adding to cart

                              When applying discounts for longer bookings using the Bookings plugin, it would be great to have a breakdown or summary of how the price has calculated based on number of days / hours, and if any discounts have been applied.

                              http://codecanyon.net/item/booking-system-pro-wordpress-plugin/full_screen_preview/2675936 does this quite well, but doesn't integrate as nicely with WooCommerce

                              • Pagination for shortcodes

                                I am using the woocoomerce sales shortcode on a page to automatically display products that are on sale.

                                It displays only 8 products and there's no way to see the remaining ones since there is no pagination on the button like it should with the next and previous page buttons.

                                It will be really helpful, if we can use the pagination with shortcode as well.

                                    • working real captcha in contact form.. and other forms as well

                                      it is really important to fight with spam, but all forms are by default unprotected

                                      • Base table rate pricing in Dynamic Pricing on product total not just product quantity

                                        Currently in the Dynamic Pricing extension it is possible in both Advanced Category and Advanced Product pricing to define a table of discounts based on the quantity of items purchased. I'd like to be able to base my discounts on the product total (quantity x base price).
