      • Centralised localization repository

        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

        • 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.

          • 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 :)

            • 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).

              • Add Rich Snippet support

                Testing my site - using Whitelight - in Google Web Master tools shows the theme does not support Rich Snippets (https://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=99170). I can't comment on other themes as I haven't checked, but I'll assume for now they're the same - it would be a big help if you could add support for Rich Snippets to your themes.

                These can help with search engine parsing, and allow (for example) Google to display authorship information next to search results. Anther example would be allowing Google to parse and display event information directly in search results - great for themes such…

                  • 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 theme having fixed width sidebars with fluid main content, but still responsive.

                        When we have a fixed width image Ad (for example ) in a sidebar, it gets cut off when the screen width gets smaller. Can we have sidebars that stay at some configurable width while the middle part automatically expands to fill the remaining available space. Ideally the sidebars would "jump" down below the content for tablet or phone size screen if there was not enough room to show it.

                        You'd think this would be a common need since amazon and adsense ads are a fixed width.

                              • Add necessary filter for full customization of custom metaboxes to Canvas

                                Add necessary filter for full customization of custom metaboxes:

                                It looks to me like there was SOME intention to allow developers to extend the custom metaboxes, but I'm seeing a problem. In admin-custom.php, there is a function to display the metabox "Canvas Custom Settings". There are filters to allow me to extend both the tabs and the tab panels. I have that working, see the attachment (red arrow for tabs, orange for tab panels.)

                                The problem is when I make changes and want to save the data. That's done in the woothemes_metabox_handle() function. That function calls up the woo_custom_template option…

                                  • Add "Slides" post type in Function theme

                                    Function uses blog posts for the slider instead of the "Slides" custom post type like other business themes.

                                    This was done based on the design spec of the theme.

                                    Adding an option for a Slide post type would make the theme operate like other business themes.

                                    • Font Icons Support in WooThemes and/or Woo Theme Framework

                                      In the latest version of Canvas (5.10), the developers replaced some images with icon fonts (from FontAwesome) and by doing included elements of FontAwsome's open-source icon font infrastructure in the theme files.

                                      I assumed that meant that I could use other font icons in my theme but it was not the case.

                                      Here is why:

                                      "We load the font files but not the css. We write our own styles to use the icons we need in the theme.

                                      If the user wants to use the markup given in that article to display icons they will need to enqueue that stylesheet…

                                        It would be great to have the option in the Feedback widget to select "Show expert" only and for it to display the excerpt and a "Read More" link to go to the individual feedback post or to the feedback page?

                                        • Replace or delete woothemes destination URL in Theme options -> Advertising banner Top Ad

                                          For some of my clients i enabled the Advertising Top Ad banner option without the destination URL filled in. Then, all of the sudden, there is the www.woothemes.com URL again, it seems to appear out of the blue somethimes after an update. Could you please leave this aside or at least replace this woothemes url by another url (www.example.com).
