  1. Call to Action shortcode or content area for Canvas

    Please add a 'Promotional Banner Module' as seen in Hustle [http://demo2.woothemes.com/?name=hustle] for Canvas. With that, the ability to order, reorder modules. That would be WOO-tastic! Thank you for your consideration :)

    • Only allow the purchase of a digital download once, or at least notify user they have already purchased this item

      It doesn't make sense in most cases for a customer to purchase a digital download twice, I would love an option that would limit the customer from downloading a digital product more than once, or notify them that the item has already been purchased.

      • Updating the social media icons for the footer widget

        The social media icons are a bit outdated (e.g., they don't have the newer, flat look).

        • Improving the UX for non-developers

          I want to ask if there is any way that in future releases, you can make the framework even more customizable without going into the CSS and changing it (e.g., something as simple as allowing for the e-mail in the footer widget menu to come above the phone number, or the ability to add Twitter to that same menu).

          • Newsletter Subscriptions - Allow other fields to be passed into email list (like FNAME)

            It would be awesome to be able to add additional fields when creating subscriptions to a MailChimp list.

            My list requires FNAME, but I had to disable that to get the Woo Email Subscriptions to work.

            While I'm making this suggestion, it would be awesome to also assign to subscribers to the correct groups in MailChimp.

            These are very common fields that get passed into MailChimp that allow you to create very personal and segmented emails.

            For example, I would like to add customers to a group based on the product purchased. That way, the email promotions I send to…

            • Built in font-resizer for W3C web accessibility compliance

              I've tried to use all the available Font Resizer plugins as the client I'm creating a site for wants W3C web accessibility compliance for people with disabilities, in particular visual impairment (they are an opticians so this is important to them).

              None of the 6 plugins I tried work with Canvas, so this would be an ideal opportunity to make Canvas/the framework more internationally compliant.

              • Include Parallax image scrolling

                Here’s a big request for most Canvas users (including me).. for the theme to include Parallax image scrolling to it. Such as a area at the top under the menu/logo/header, or (as well) in the head itself). That’s one thing I would love added to it!

                • coupon rounding needs to be fixed

                  WooCommerce Coupons really needs to fix its rounding system. 10% of 1750 cannot be 176. It doesn't matter what decimals you add because the have 0 value and do not affect the mathematical outcome. (Please talk to Patrick Rauland on your own support staff who has all the details of our complaint).

                  • WooSubscription - to spit out a single page with all active subscribers postal address.

                    There is no way at the moment in WooSubscriptions to get all postal addresses from active subscribers, thus the plugin user has to go open each single subscription to get that info. Now, this can be extremely time consuming when handling a lot of subscribers.

                    A solution for this would be for WooCommerce to spit out all active subscribers addresses into a single printable page.

                        Link the Global Add Ons plugin price to the main price. At the moment the add ons price breakdown is shown under the main price, but not very well presented. Please include the price breakdown in the main WooCommerce total price.

                        • Quota download (photo/images/media files) per day.

                          It should be great to put a quota download (20 Mo or...) per day (for exemple for :free membership).
                          This quota download per day will be a quota Mo to all files with this setting on.

                          • Support Lazy Load plugin

                            Support Lazy Load to improve page load time (without affecting SEO). Lazy Load only loads images that are visible to the visitor:
                            http://wordpress.org/plugins/lazy-load/

                            Unfortunately Lazy Load did not work out-of-the-box with my author profile below posts and also fails with the WooThemes shortcode social_icon from:
                            http://docs.woothemes.com/document/shortcodes/

                            These images didn't load at all. Other images load fine.

                            Might have something to do with the "circle effect" over these images (Canvas theme). WooThemes considers it a 3th party issue but also suggested to drop a line here for integration.

                            Would be nice if we could find out what stops the images from…

                              The software plugin allows you to create products with a single activation key and a fixed number activation counts. There is a spin control to vary the number of that product you want and from that count the total price is computed by multiplying aganst the per unit price, then you check out via other ecommerce mechanisms.

                              OUR GOAL: We want to have the spin control (i.e. number of products desired) drive the activation count, and run a volume discount function we can provide to drive the displayed price rather than a simple multiplication of the count by a fixed…

                              • Dynamic Pricing based on COST, not discount from retail

                                Adjustments to be made on the Cost, i.e. to achieve a certain percentage of profit, rather than adjusting a percentage off of a retail price.

                                Maybe this could be achieved by only showing prices to logged in users, and using the Cost value as the price, and relying on the rules to calculate the actual prices...but that is SO messy, and has the potential for people to order at Cost, and other issues.

                                  Would like an option to leave product notes above a single product page. For instance, let's say I have a product that can't be sold in the state of Illinois, USA. So I could say, "This product is not available to Illinois, USA" or "this product is custom made and will be delayed 3 weeks from purchase". I can see how to edit the single product template but once WooCommerce updates, my code goes away. Is there a plugin which allows for custom post text but specific to products only? I would like either a single product alert or a…

                                  • Smart Coupons - Apply to Fees at Checkout

                                    A service fee is added to the checkout of certain products. Currently, when a user checks out, even if the gift card exceeds the order total, he or she still has to pay for the fee with one of the payment gateways. Fees can added like so:
                                    $woocommerce->cart->add_fee( 'Service Fee', $service_fee, true, 'standard' );

                                    Fix: Before (Line 2176 of ./woocommerce_smart_coupons.php):
                                    $order_total = Smart_Coupons_WC_Compatibility::global_wc()->cart->cart_contents_total + Smart_Coupons_WC_Compatibility::global_wc()->cart->tax_total + Smart_Coupons_WC_Compatibility::global_wc()->cart->shipping_tax_total + Smart_Coupons_WC_Compatibility::global_wc()->cart->shipping_total;

                                    After:
                                    $fees_total = 0;
                                    foreach ( Smart_Coupons_WC_Compatibility::global_wc()->cart->fees as $fee ) {
                                    $fees_total += $fee->amount;
                                    }

                                    $order_total = Smart_Coupons_WC_Compatibility::global_wc()->cart->cart_contents_total + Smart_Coupons_WC_Compatibility::global_wc()->cart->tax_total + Smart_Coupons_WC_Compatibility::global_wc()->cart->shipping_tax_total + Smart_Coupons_WC_Compatibility::global_wc()->cart->shipping_total + $fees_total;

                                    • Premium Service at a Surcharge (monthly fee) with Skype chat/voice support (or otherwise)

                                      I would like to suggest an additional kind of support at a surcharge - premium support where there is no redirection (or guided redirection and stay in charge), but just great service with people that are in charge and take responsibility + Skype chat/voice support (or otherwise), even when it concerns other plugins (maybe some list of approved plugins that are considered good quality). I would certainly be someone that would highly appreciate this kind of service and happy to pay a monthly fee!

                                      • Currency Converter Plugin

                                        I'm using the currency convertor and it does a good job but I'd like the ability to control the output. For instance, it only outputs short versions of the currency and I'd like to instead put 'Australian Dollars' as appose to AUD.
