  1. Make themes compatible with wangguard

    Many people would like to use the wannguard plugin to protect their site against sploggers.
    Unfortunately it doesn't work together with the Appply theme. I'm not sure if it works with the other themes from woothemes.

    Cheers

    • Improve the way printed posts look

      I added css to my theme so navigation elements (menu/sidebar), footers and ads are not printed. This makes much better use of paper.

      Would be nice if WooThemes could make this easy for others: add checkboxes for things you don't want to see on print.

      I also add my links as footnotes below the post so people, that could be an option as well "Print links as footnotes".

      Example? Any post on http://www.eenmanierom.nl/.

      I've seen earlier declined requests for this, hope this one gets more votes!

      • Have the shortcodes compatible with other themes

        I am using another theme from two years, and i was using shortcodes on it. If i switch to Woothemes, there are some shortcodes that are equal so it will broke my old posts style. If the shortcodes of the theme had an unique woothemes names, they wont clash with other themes shortcodes so we can use both.

        • Subscribe & Connect - Option to Open in New Window/Tab

          Great effort is made to get visitors to my client sites - the LAST thing I want to do is send them away! The current method of sending website visitors away hoping they'll use the browser back option is SOOO detrimental!

          Need an option in the Connect Settings field(s) so that the Social Media sites can open in new windows/tabs. ( a la "_blank" )

              • Optional Header Text

                On business sites it is very common to have phone numbers, main contact email, etc. in the header so it is visible immediately on each page. Need this ability on all themes IMHO.

                • Looping slider in function theme

                  The slider in the function theme should loop back to slide one after it is at its end. I was kind of disappointed when I figured this out, of course I probably just assumed it looped and didn't look for the feature before I purchased.

                  I think looping slide shows should be a standard in sliders.

                  • changelog link on theme options header doesn't point to the right page

                    This is the case for the shelflife and one pager theme but probably more (maybe even all of them). Just to notify:)

                    • Create a parallax theme

                      I know scrollider is «almost» a parallax theme, but I would love to have a true, fullscale parallax theme from you guys.

                      • Background sets!

                        I came on board with WooThemes because of the consistency in design of your themes and because (at the time) the themes had a distinctive and beautiful look about them. The themes are still well crafted and I really enjoy the consistency of where to find everything on the back end as I travel between any of the many sites I host for clients across North America, but I have been a bit disappointed with the newer themes not continuing to have that very artistic look about them. It seems that a decision was made to 'go utilitarian' and just…

                        • Make Simplicity responsive

                          Please make simplicity fully responsive. It is just fine in many browsers but a real mobile experience would be really nice.

                          • Listings functionality for other themes

                            It would be great to have the Advanced search module, featured panel, etc, that come with the Listings Theme available as a plug in for use with other themes. It would give much more flexibility, create responsive sites and keep us in the Woo Family. Currently , I have to go to http://wp-types.com/ and use their plug ins which cost more than the Listings Theme does.

                            • Make themes accessible to screen readers

                              Hello!

                              We're a disability NGO working in Pakistan, and have chosen the WhiteLight theme for our website. We want to set an example for everyone else by having an accessible website. It's largely accessible to people using screen readers, but there are some problems:
                              - feature slider doesn't work with a screen reader
                              - text contrast
                              - input field doesn't seem to be picked up properly

                              I've used an accessibility checker, which gives more details: http://achecker.ca/checker/index.php

                              Some of these can be fixed by us (e.g. contrast between link colour and background), but there are other changes that should be done…

                                • Align the bottom of shop products on main shop page in themes like PixelPress where there is a frame around the product.

                                  With PixelPress and other themes which render a frame around a product in the main shop page, the bottom of the frame varies in its location based on the typography in the product description, and the buy button aligns with the bottom so they can appear at any height. This looks sloppy. It would be great to have a grid system that determines the overall height of the product frame so that at least the bottom would appear at a grid-determined distance, giving it some visual coherence, and it would also be nice to have the buttons appear before the…

                                  • Promotion Banner & Introductory Message

                                    Promotion Banner & Introductory Message should not be placed under Theme Options / Homepage but rather it should be place on the WP left navigation menu like Feature, Testinmonials, and Slides. These options will usually be setup by non-admins who won't have access to Theme Options.

                                    • Add 'by categories' or 'by tag' to the POST option of woo - post type slideshow

                                      Widgetized Homepage option to filter posts from different categories or tags in separate 'woo - post type slideshow' widget would make this widget so much more powerful. .....just as it is done in the 'woo - embed/video widget'

                                      • Support WordPress post formats with different css stylings.

                                        It would be realy nice if Woothemes would support the default WordPress formats just as the default WordPress themes do.

                                        • Original Themes - Layouts

                                          I feel like the majority of the themes released lately on here are very similar. The last few releases don't strike me as been very different from one another. Using canvas and a little tweeking I could have made anyone of them.

                                          I vote to see some completely new layouts. Full screen image responsive. Or a visual builder for canvas (my favorite theme).

                                          How about a parrallax scrolling theme. Maybe a mobile first design not just responsive.

                                          How about a buddy press theme.

                                          If I wanted 5 different repsonsive themes I would have just paid for them on themeforest.
