  1. Change add to cart button and redirect to product single page

    This is a bit complex for non developers but, instead adding more code I change the code and the result is the same.

    See below:

    Inside your plugin folder find woocommerce/templates/loop/add-to-cart.php

    Firstly, backup the original file in case something goes wrong.

    Secondly, open the file and replace the original code with:

    <?php
    /**
    * Loop Add to Cart
    *
    * @author WooThemes
    * @package WooCommerce/Templates
    * @version 1.6.4
    */

    if ( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) exit; // Exit if accessed directly

    global $product;
    ?>

    <?php if ( ! $product->is_in_stock() ) : ?>

    <a href="<?php echo apply_filters( 'out_of_stock_add_to_cart_url', get_permalink( $product->id…

    • Distributor options for global customers during the checkout process

      We have sales worldwide, but would like to direct customers to their local distributor if one exists. For example, if a customer enters their county as Spain can we redirect them to our distributor page before they purchase? The reason is that it is much cheaper for customers to order our product from a local distributor in some cases.

      • DIBS Form support for subscriptions

        It would be great if the the DIBS Form extension (http://www.woothemes.com/products/dibs-form/) was compatible with subscriptions.
        After talking to the DIBS support team, they told me that it should be possible to support DIBS subscriptions with their API.
        I received this from the DIBS support team regarding implementing subscriptions:
        http://tech.dibspayment.com/flexwin_hosted_input_parameters_standard_parameters
        Under ”optional” use ”maketicket” or ” preauth”.

        I don't know if this is useful or if it's possible, but this is what they said to me.

        • Integrate with Geckoboard so I can see my stats

          Would love to get my sales data on my Geckoboard. I know you already integrate with Zapier, which also integrates with Geckoboard, but unfortunately I can't grab sales data out of this, just individual orders.

          • Add Related posts to Subscribe/Connect plugin

            I'm currently using Subscribe & Connect in WooThemes Canvas via the Framework and was looking into the Subscribe/Connect plugin as you'll probably disable the Framework version in the near future.

            I'm missing Related posts in the plugin Subscribe/Connect.

            • Adding custom codes on a hook intended for the homepage only

              Greetings!

              I want to add a custom html codes and short codes using "hook" and I want the codes to be shown (to take effect) exclusively in the homepage.

              I have tried adding under "Main" then "Executed after the closing#content DIV tag".. , it looks good in the homepage but the output is also showing on the other pages. How can I make it only in the homepage?

              • Header Lead Capture in themes

                It would be great if you could have themes that have the lead capture information in the header in all of your themes.

                It will make it easier to get leads to optin for more information.

                • Canvas BbPress and BuddyPress support is needed

                  Frankly speaking, woothemes can't keep declining requests for Buddypress and BBpress by saying "they are not part of our core focus / expertise." The industry needs a well designed themes for Buddypress and Bbpress from a leaders like you, it's not practical to decline it while the market is rapidly grow and such solution is unavailable through you.

                  • Product Interest Customer Voting Plugin

                    A Product Interest voting plugin, would replace the shopping cart options that normally appear in the product pages, and replaces them with a vote button. Store owners could float the idea of offering a potential potential product and gauge interest before investing in stock.

                    Potential Products could exists in their own category, but also appear alongside real products in shopping pages where customers might search for them.

                    • Integrate Subscriptions and Gift Certificate Products

                      It should be possible to make a Gift Certificate Product a Subscription product. The scenario is that someone buys a subscription that entitles them to one X and 10 Y per month, and the system automatically handles their balance, which can be applied at checkout.

                        It would be great to be able to easily position navigation underneath the business slider..

                        • Simplify the Canvas theme options

                          Although canvas has a great engine, there are far too many theme options, and it's very confusing to use them for any purpose other than minor tweaks. I had my wife use canvas for a website, and she was confused. I personally disable all styles and use a child stylesheet, so it's not a problem for me, but for someone not too familiar with CSS, the 10+ typography, color, and border options are overkill. Everything needs to be simplified, otherwise one needs to spend way too much time to change the look. I've recently started using pagelines for this reason,…

                            the main idea is that we can pick up a color for each part of the product and then send the requested parameters to make te custom product.

                              Very difficult to click on them on a phone. impossible really.

                              • Fedex Weight Based Shipping

                                Hello,

                                The Fedex module doesn't need to get rates based on package size the api can retrieve rates based on weight.

                                This extension claims to get rates based on just weight

                                http://www.extensionworks.com/product/woocommerce-fedex-shipping-plugin/

                                this plugin for a yahoo store we currently use also gets rates based on weights

                                http://www.kingwebmaster.com/

                                -Ryan Parrish

                                    • Products Widget - Ability to specify products

                                      Not sure if this is possible yet (I'm new to Woo).

                                      But I'm using widgetised sidebars to display Featured Products, Top Rated Products, Best Selling Products, etc.

                                      I'd really like a way to specify which products to show in a sidebar by entering their product id. Just so I have more control instead of letting Woo choose for me.

                                      i.e., create a sidebar called My Favorite Products, and then in that widgetised sidebar display product ids 35, 46 and 75.

                                      I've tried shortcodes, but they end up not being formatted properly.

                                      • Subscription Pagination

                                        I would like to see some type of pagination on the subscription list. Where it would only load the most recent 10 items and paginate the rest. We have a subscription that we add to 2x a week and in a year that adds up. It would also solve the my account page loading slow.

                                        • Subscriptions

                                          I would like to see the option for subscriptions when signed up to only list the new items from when the user signed up for it.
                                          A MP3 subscription would only list mp3 downloads from the date of the persons purchase not all previous mp3s.
