    • widgetized fluid homepage

      Greetings!
      I really want to have a couple of fluid rows in my homepage like the woothemes site homepage, http://www.woothemes.com/

      My purpose here is that I will make a couple of horizontal fluid bars in my homepage with different background colors. Like in the woothemes homepage section that says,
      ALL OUR THEMES FOR $399. That is a fluid section with a nice background image (with laptop) which is fluid. The background is completely extended.

      So in the widget section, every text widget is a fluid section so that we can just set a specific background color if we wish too…

      • 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!

        • Add calendar-based module scheduling in Sensei

          Some courses are structured to meet on a recurring basis. In these situations, the availability of the next module should be calendar-based. Thinking about how to do this, I suppose one could hide the "I've completed this task" button, and have a cron job that updated Sensei with timing to coincide with the date of the next class. It would be nice if this could be done by just telling Sensei the dates of the classes.

            • "Cart Reports" Plugin - Extra functionality for Exporting to .CSV

              Hi there,

              Just wanted to know if you can write a simple script to export the "cart reports" information from the extension to .CSV ?

              The cart reports software is amazing.
              There are a large amount of people who hit out website and enter their email address on the Popup email grabber.
              After this, the cart reports software I believe actually adds that email address to their "cart" and we can see customers names before they purchase.

              If we could export all the carts data, their items in the cart, total cart price, dicounts applied?, with their logged email address. …

                • Reset Filter for AJAX Layered Nav

                  The AJAX Layered Nav is great, but I feel it is missing one bit of important functionality. The ability to Reset the filters. (ie. a show all button).

                    • Shipping Table Rates should update according to Coupon

                      Hi guys!
                      It would be great if coupons can work together with shipping table rates!
                      Right now Table Rate Shipping isn't able to update according to the coupon being applied.
                      Also, coupons function does not have the option for users to apply coupons before shipping cost.

                      Example:
                      In my client's shop if a user buys products in the shop and the cart total is lower than € 199,99 he'll have to spend € 10,00 for shipping; if the cart total is higher than € 200,00 the shipping is free.
                      We also set a coupon code which allows the user to…

                      • It would be nice to be able to hide a check out option,

                        so only administrators can use the check out option (if you place an order for a customer and wants to send an invoice or let the person pay manually).

                        • Add index keys to $options array

                          If the theme options array had index keys, then specific options could be more easily unset/disabled via child themes using the woo_options_add ( $options ) function. Currently, I have to do some recursive array searching.

                          However, if the array was structured like so:

                          $options['alt-stylesheet'] = array( 'name' => __( 'Theme Stylesheet', 'woothemes' ),
                          'desc' => __( 'Select your themes alternative color scheme.', 'woothemes' ),
                          'id' => $shortname . '_alt_stylesheet',
                          'std' => 'default.css',
                          'type' => 'select',
                          'options' => $alt_stylesheets );

                          Then a child theme could unset this option simply

                          unset( $options['alt-stylesheet' ] );

                          This shouldn't have any back-compat issues either.

                          • Scrollider search widget should use locate_template()

                            If in the search widget's widget() method you replace :

                            `
                            include( get_template_directory() . '/search-form.php' );
                            `

                            with

                            `
                            locate_template( 'search-form.php', true );
                            `

                            then child themes can override the search form without needing to hack the widget, or re-load the widget.

                              • WooCommerce

                                I really like this addition to my webstie. My main concern for this plugin is that I can't modify the store page.

                                I see that my product boxes are HUGE. I don't want large boxes, but I've already invested too much into this plugin to turn back.

                                I also want to be able to setup placement of products and categories. In the setup I get three options. None of which are what I want.

                                I also want the option to move the sidebar to the left.

                                For a variant, or attribute option:
                                each product will have the select option. I…

                                • Free Shipping override to all other shipping methods

                                  Im using woocommerce's ups plugin, and have it set so there's a fallback of $15 shipping charge which would apply if no UPS shipping option can be determined.

                                  However i also have a FREE SHIPPING setting which says that orders over $150 ship for free.

                                  I believe this I have in common with 75% of ecommerce sites out there.

                                  Problem: If i add a product to the cart that has no weight setting, UPS is unable to give an estimate for shipping it. Which is understandable.

                                  However, if this item exceeds the free shipping threshold, I would expect that would…

                                  • have full width layout (as per canvas) available for all themes

                                    All my sites are full width. If te individual pages and posts can be full width, and the theme options.php can be overriden to enable this default then it shouldnt be too hard to add full width as a default for all the themes that support this

                                    Sidebars are distracting and take up valuable screen estate for traditional website s made with your themes

                                      • Ability to show meta fields in the Order detail page

                                        I would like to have an option to show meta information in the Order page (for example, a product serial number or an expiration date of a service). This info resides in a custom field.
