General Ideas

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

How can we improve WooThemes?

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".

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

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

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

  1. 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…

          • Add option to include search box in Canvas menu

            I was surprised to not find the ability to place a WordPress search box in the menu bar for the Canvas theme. Maybe I missed it in the various options...still looking...but this would be a helpful upgrade.

            • 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.

              • Feedback Widget

                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).

                    • 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

                      • Create My tickets tab in the my account section

                        I find myself searching for my tickets, maybe it’ll be a good idea to create a tab ‘my tickets’ on the ‘my account’ page (that’s actually the place i find myself going to when i search my tickets). Even if it’s just a redirect it'll be enough.

                          • 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.

                                  • 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…

                                    • 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:

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

                                      • Google Authorship on auto in the theme

                                        I relly think that you have to make a way to make it easy for non programmers to conneckt the theme with google to make the Google Authorship in google +
