  1. Table Rate Shipping Extension should allow default zone other than "Everywhere Else"

    We should be able to set a "Default" shipping zone that displays in the shopping cart when WooCommerce does not yet know the customers' location.

    We are based in the United States, and most of our orders are shipping to the United States. We have our shipping zones set up to United States, Canada, China, and rest-of-world.

    However, since "Everywhere Else" is the default, a new customer will see the worldwide shipping price in their cart -- which of course is the most expensive option. We want them to see the United States price as the default.

    • Add a date picker to Product Add-ons wordpress plugin

      My website is about selling tours, and a client can book various tours at the same time.
      So i would find it very helpful to include a date picker calendar field to the plug in so that they can choose when to do the tour.

      thanks

      • Add 1 on 1 mentoring to Sensei

        Would like to add 1 on 1 mentoring to our site. The messaging platform with sensei would work great for this, but I would like our students to be able to message us without a lesson. The mentoring would not include videos, only messaging and critiquing. Possibly being able to share files and images.

        • Note taking for Students

          It would be great that with Sensei a student could take notes while in the lesson. It could be similar to the Quiz setup. There would be a paragraph of text and below that a multiple line text box (same as quiz box) and Admin can decide if there needs to be a text box after each paragraph and so on. The student would be able to save their place, just like the quiz, and come back and edit/add to it, just like the quiz. Obviously the notes would be user specific. This would be a huge feature for us,…

          • Conflict & Error Notifications!

            If there are issues or updates that effectively break my site I would like to be notified asap by email? rather than find out for myself by way of NON SALES / SALES GRINDING TO A HALT so I can do everything possible to rectify the situation.

            • Product Vendors - Option for Vendor to mange order status

              The product vendors plugin should have options for vendors to manage and update the status of the order. The site admin should be able to configure this setting - Vendors to see orders and manage orders.

              Vendors should be able to change the order status to processing and then complete.

              • search by SKU

                I mean...why wouldnt we be able to search and sort products by SKU? some clients have sites with thousands of products with parts and part numbers and SKU - so I just dont know how something like this would be overlooked. Im pretty sure i speak for most, but woocommerce should definitely have the ability to search by SKU number especially since its data thats available. you gotta take the cleitns with products that are replacement parts that need to be found by SKU

                • Sensei: Make Course active again when a new Lesson is added

                  There may be many courses where an instructor will be adding lessons to the course over the length of the course. The suggestion is to make the Course refresh back to Active Courses when a new lesson is added. Currently the courses go to Completed Courses in the dashboard and stay there when a new unit is added.

                  • Add shipping tax override

                    We are having an issue with taxes and the Table Shipping rates plugin. Our store is located in Canada. Under Canadian law, we have to apply tax to the products we sell within Canada and those taxes will vary from province to province. However, the tax we are charged on shipping (no matter where in the world we ship) is a constant percentage. It would be useful in a future version of the plugin to be able to set an optional tax rate for each shipping zone.

                    I will provide 3 examples to clearly outline the issue we are experiencing:

                    • Add text-size-adjust: 100%; to your themes

                      I've hated seeing my Canvas powered sites balloon the font size on mobile devices when switching from portrait to landscape. Since I highly customize Canvas with Child Themes, when I found this CSS command, I've started plugging the following in to my websites and I'm inlove with the text saying the same size. Can this start getting implemented on to the sites?

                      html {
                      -ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;
                      -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;
                      }

                      • CSV import replaces rates for a product or variation with per product shipping

                        It'd be nice to be able to select an option to have the csv import remove existing rates for a product ID. I currently have multiple products and variations that have as many as 49 shipping rates per variation. Managing the rates in a spreadsheet is easier, but each import appends entries, making future widespread edits less efficient.

                            • custom slider navigation

                              In the Woo slider plugin (or in the slider included with business template with Canvas), I'd like to be able to replace the dot navigation at the bottom of the slider with custom buttons/links for each slide. For example, the buttons would say "Intro", "What we do", "How we work","Our impact". That way, the user could jump between the slides based on interest, at will, with a sense of what each slide contains.

                              • Product vendor plugin would be useless without 2 functions

                                1. vendors can receive the new order notice.

                                Add a function that New order notice can be sent to vendors' email when a client place an order for the vendor's product.


                                2. Vendors can see orders belonged to them.
                                In wordpress CMS, a Vendor can both edit their products and view all orders related to his products.

                                • EU VAT Number 2.0.0: This is a B2B tool, so keep the B2B functions!

                                  EU VAT Number is a B2B thing, and the extension "EU VAT Number" used to be a B2B tool. So keep the B2B functions! WooThemes has repurposed the tool to meet the needs of B2C service providers that makes it less useful to B2B.

                                  In the new version of the plugin, WooThemes has added a great function (reject orders when no valid EU VAT No. is provided) that gives us B2B service providers finally control to accept only B2B orders from EU businesses.

                                  But they have also removed an essential function. The former extension version distinguished between:

                                  • Add scrollbar capability to Woocommerce widgets (or at least Ajax Layered Navigation plugin)

                                    I think it would be awesome if you could add a scrollbar feature to the Ajax Layered Navigation plugin that you have or other extensions used for filtering products on shop pages. I have over 5000 products which use different attributes (and many values within those attributes), so it looks pretty rough when there's widgets that are super long. I just want to have better UX options on these types of plugins. Ajax Layered Navigation and Brands extensions can both use this.

                                    Thanks in advance!

                                    • 3RD PARTY FUND RAISING PLUGIN FOR NON PROFITS

                                      I am trying to find a solution for my non profits that will allow them to ENABLE their support networks to permit 3rd party fund raisers.. please see this link http://www.habitatwindsor.org/uploads/5/9/8/9/5989410/third_party_fundraising_-_web.pdf and this link http://plancanada.ca/Downloads/PlanCanada_FundraisingKit/FundraisingKit_Guidelines.pdf and this link http://plancanada.ca/Downloads/PlanCanada_FundraisingKit/PlanCanada_FundraisingKit.pdf for some great information about how 80-­90% of charities raise money with 3rd party fund raisers...

                                      it's sort of like crowd funding BUT you don't have perks you have registrants that pay to register to participate and go out and gather donations to meet the over all goal of the campaign... (( here is an example of a registrant page on…

                                        We are all at the mercy of FreshBooks (good but expensive) or other low end invoicing solution.
                                        Please guys, you are our salvation, do a theme/plugin that we can use for invoicing :)

                                        • Bookings - add a price breakdown before adding to cart

                                          When applying discounts for longer bookings using the Bookings plugin, it would be great to have a breakdown or summary of how the price has calculated based on number of days / hours, and if any discounts have been applied.

                                          http://codecanyon.net/item/booking-system-pro-wordpress-plugin/full_screen_preview/2675936 does this quite well, but doesn't integrate as nicely with WooCommerce
