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.

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

  1. Add an akismet approval queue

    It would be great if you guys integrated with akismet on registration forms and had an "approval queue" in the admin for those found to be spam so if they were legit you can mark as ham. As it stands now there is no way to prevent or throttle malicious signups. You can apply with any info you want and there is no way to protect against that. Bots can cause chaos in short order.

    We historically would use a captcha but the problem with captchas is they are 99% breakable now, our own wordpress login captcha was beatable using…

    • Add global options to change product page layout for all products at once

      Well I contacted support because I wanted to change the layout of the product page to be singular layout without sidebars but I discovered that there was no simple way to change them all at once which is difficult if you install the theme after using another that does support the option especially if you have many products.

      a global switch would be ideal for this but I'll take supporting it through the CSV import export plugin because it's set as a product option.

      Although the option to change them singularly is welcome I think customers would normally want their…

      • Batch import Sensei questions with duplicate prevention

        Need a way to quickly import multiple questions for lesson quizzes, assign a lesson category and prevent duplicate questions via CSV or other file type. I have over 1000 questions to add and it is literally taking me years to add them manually.

          • Support additional social icons in the Superstore theme top and contact bars

            Hi

            Currently if you enter your phone number, fax, facebook or twitter in to the Contact settings of the Superstore theme they appear in the Top and Contact bars of the Superstore based site.

            However this is limiting and really it should support more social feeds and also email. We are more focused on Instagram and Google+ but these don't appear in those two section - those though are supported in the Connect widget. It would be good if it also supported icons for Skype, Hangouts, Lync, Email, G+, Instagram, Pinterest (that's a biggy).

            Perhaps also with tick boxes or…

            • More Reporting Options for Coupon Campaigns

              The coupon campaign plugin is a great idea. It allows better tracking of specific coupons for specific reasons. But the report it generates will only do one coupon at a time. If there are many coupons (like for me), then it is very tedious to create one report for each coupon.

              • Extension Concierge

                A real person to accept requests for functionality and find a plugin/extension that fits it. Twice now I've bought plugins that seemed like they were going to work based on the description only to find out they did not and that there was a different plugin that worked better (after submitting a ticket and grousing).
                This could be someone who contracts out their service and gets a percentage of the sale or a small fee (once the user is happy).

                • WooCommerce needs to store order data separately

                  WooCommerce strongly recommends a separate, development server and moving that copy to the live site. However, WooCommerce offers little to nothing to prevent that process from overwriting any orders received on the live site singe the last copy was pulled to the staging server. WooCommerce should either add functions to export, save and later, import order activity, or perhaps store order information in its own tables so that developers could more easily do development on WooCommerce enabled sites.

                  Without one of these solutions developers are left with the daunting task of manually rebuilding the order history in the DB tables…

                  • Increase search and select all functionality in the sales tax setup screen.

                    when you have thousands of tax codes by zip code it is too hard to find the ones you need to update when there is a tax rate change. You should have a select all and delete function so that you can simply re import the updated tax codes from a spreadsheet.

                    • Allow Deposits for Bookings plugin

                      I would like it so that I could allow clients to make partial payments or a deposit for reservations for Bookings. I don't think that this is currently possible. This may complicate things also since you'd need the option for a non-refundable amount and that amount refunded could be based on the time before the reservation. For example if someone cancels a week in advance then they may lose 10% of their deposit, but if it were just a day before then they would lose 100% of their deposit. Also, you'd need to be able to cancel that booking to…

                            • place multiple orders of various print sizes of the same photograph.

                              I would like to offer clients the chance to place multiple orders of various print sizes of the same photograph. Otherwise they have to add each photograph to the cart separately. This of course works temporally but clients often don't add items to the cart until they see their full order on screen. An example, (5) 5x7's $, (3) 4x6's $ and then they scroll down and make sure they have all the right sizes and quantities for the correct photos. Is there a way to do this that I am overlooking? It seems like your framework is ready to…

                              • Make it Insanely Easy to Create and Insert Slideshows Anywhere.

                                Problem: Slideshows are ridiculously non-intitutive to create. For a person with a graphics background it is totally non-sensical. The documentation is terrible.

                                Solution: Make it bombproof and insanely intuitive and easy to create slideshows. This is how it would work:

                                Add images for your slideshow to Media Library with the normal upload process.

                                Create Slideshow. 1) select images in Media Library. 2) Organize sequence. 3) Name slideshow. 4) Save.

                                Insert Slideshow. 1) Go to All slideshows. 2) Select sideshow. 3) Insert into post.

                                Option: create slideshow shortcode: [slideshow]Name_of_Slideshow [/slideshow]

                                Simple for the user.

                                • Bookings - fixed 'start' and 'duration' date ranges

                                  This plugin needs to be more friendly to rental companies - I have installed it and have found numerous areas it lacks.

                                  We need to set a fixed starter date i.e. Saturday afternoon and a check-out date i.e. the following Saturday morning (1 week). Users should be able to click the desired Saturday then they can select from a drop down, how many blocks they'd like (i.e. 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks) etc. This would be hugely invaluable to my current project.

                                    • Vídeo View Controller

                                      Would be very nice if we have a plugin that could make the user able to pay for ONE access of a video.

                                      But he could see this only once, and not from a different computer that he bought the video or started to watching.

                                      After one view, user needs to pay again to watch the same or another video.

                                      • Custom capability for editing / publishing Wooslider Slides

                                        Right now, the way a user is able to edit a Wooslider slide is if they have publish_posts enabled. Otherwise, they must simply submit the slide for review.

                                        Since slide is a custom post type, I'd love for us to be able to control whether or not users are able to publish slides, independent of if they can publish posts or not. I.e. a whole new suite of capabilities just for the Slideshow plugin. Similarly to how you have a whole suite of capabilities for the Products custom post type in the WooCommerce plugin.

                                        Make sense?

                                        • 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.

                                          I've found a…
