Theme Ideas

Got a WooCommerce idea? We have a separate forum for WooCommerce.

How can we improve WooThemes themes?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add support for "Follow Company" button in Subscribe/Connect

    • Add DIV Element to Prevent Nesting When Using Column Shortcodes

      I used multiple columns sections to organize content. Due to the CSS properties columns can nest with each other causing layout problems.

      The solution was found on this website: http://tutorials.mysitemyway.com/adding-column-layout-shortcodes-to-a-wordpress-theme

      It adds a zero-pixel, full-width DIV element after every column _last to prevent any nesting issues.

      Thought it might be a useful addition.

      • Video embed in Canvas Slider

        To get the business slider to work more like the Simplicity slider where you can have video in a slide that actually looks like it's part of the layout rather than shoehorned in there...

        • Image styling for tab manager plugin

          I'm using the appply theme and I discovered that there was no image styling applied to images placed in the Tab Manager plugin. I think the theme designers assumed every image would be in a post, page or product.
          It would be nice if the default image styling was consistent throughout the site.
          This may be the case with other themes too.

          • Implement the "Content Builder" from Listings theme as a plugin

            This is a really nice tool for creating custom taxonomies.

            • Stop Featured Sliders from Sliding While Playing Videos in Scrollider

              When playing video in the Featured Post Slider (on the homepage) with Scrollider, the video plays but the slider continues to slide. There should be some kind of setting that disables the slide when videos are playing so they can play uninterruptedly. Unfortunately, the "Slider Hover Pause" button (Hovering over featured slider will pause it) does not work for videos.

              • Product Features Template as Product Page Template in Capital

                The Product Features page of the Capital template is great but I can't set it as a product template. As far as I heard from woo staff it works with shortcodes only. It would be great if it was possible to select this as a theme template for products.

                  • Content Layout Templates (Like Simplethemes)

                    Simplethemes, in my opinion, is an inferior product to Woo but their quick page templates are fantastic for non coders. Interesting and full looking content layout is always the struggle once a site it built. These templates and possibly more extensive short code options would add big to Woo's content layout arsenal.

                    • Pull through Disqus comments into Woo Tabs' "Comments" Tab

                      Hi guys,

                      I love the Woo Tabs in my sidebar, but the Comments section doesn't fetch any of the latest comments from Disqus. Is this possible? It works great with native WordPress comments, but I find Disqus better for engagement.

                      Thanks

                      Jack

                      • Add support for colorpicker (and other) field types in woothemes_metabox_create_fields

                        The woo_add_metaboxes allows you to add additional custom fields to post types. Unlike the general settings, there's no support for a colorpicker. (Or, for that matter, borders, fonts, and so on, all available now on the general settings when you extend those.) Since the code is already written in one part of the Framework, how about making it available in this other part of the Framework?

                        • Variable excerpt lengths for Featured Posts and Grid Posts (Canvas Magazine)

                          Using Canvas Magazine template.

                          My featured posts have a large thumbnail. The standard 40 words leaves a large gap. I can fill this up by using the Advanced Excerpt plugin, but then the excerpt is too long for the grid-posts section.

                          It would ideal if the excerpt length for the featured and the grid section was controllable. Currently we can control the thumbnail size, but if the accompanying excerpt cannot be controlled then it looks too sparse having the thumbnail sizes different.

                          It would also be great to port some of the controls from Advanced Excerpt into WooCanvas.

                          Cheers

                            • Provide Portrait and Landscape Options

                              Artists, such as painters and photographers, often display their work in either landscape or portrait orientation. Unfortunately, while WP has improved image editing, it's impossible to display a portrait-orientation work next to a landscape-oriented work. This would be a welcome addition for many artists, and not just professionals.

                                Add content capability to Whitelight's slider so that users can include more text - using the content instead of the excerpt, and allow extra formatting for the inclusion of shortcodes - for buttons links, such as "Read More".

                                    Could be a plugin like sidebars were abstracted from the framework. We could create any number of 1,2 and 3 column layouts all with varying widths.

                                    • Create RSS Feeds of a Themes Changelog

                                      Would be cool to be able to subscribe via RSS to a theme's changelog.

                                      I can imagine using google reader to keep up-to-date on all the themes I'm using across 40+ websites.

                                      I know there is a theme notification option in the the framework but I have to be logged in to the site, this would let us get notification without being loged in to a particular site.

                                      • Featured Post widget

                                        Create a generic version of portfolio widget that can be configured to pull other post-types (in given taxonomies etc).

                                        This could be used on homepage/landing pages

                                        • Fallback to default index.php if show_on_front is selected but page_on_front is equal to 0

                                          If you are using static frontpage (`show_on_front`) in WordPress' setting, but `page_on_front` is not set, it is better to fall back to the `index.php` instead of the `template-blog.php`.

                                          By doing so, you can have a separate url for blog, e.g. http://www.example.com/blog but still use the default theme's frontpage (index.php). Otherwise, if you leave out the `page_on_front` in the setting, the posts page is also used as the frontpage - so, http://www.example.com/blog & http://www.example.com is the same.

                                          Code changes:

                                          woo_load_posts_page_blog_template (functions/admin-functions.php )

                                          From:

                                          if ( 'page' == get_option( 'show_on_front' ) && ( '' != get_option( 'page_for_posts' ) ) && is_home() )…
