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".
(thinking…)

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. Author's Feature Tab

    Add to the Woo-Tabs plugin (or make another plugin that looks and functions just like it) an option for the author to choose the posts that are displayed.

    As of right now I have the 'Popular tab' visible. I like it but it is only based on comments. A lot of my most popular posts, are not the posts with the most comments.

    I'd also like to be able to feature some posts that are important to me, the author, and perhaps not the "most popular".

      • Persistent cart

        Currently we are using Woocommerce as a shop for a group of users that have received a (general) login, which they use to access the website.
        As long as they are logged in, they can access te website, and place orders.

        We have been using this since Woocommerce 1.6, and in this version we were able to automatically empty the cart for a user when he logged in, to make sure carts of different users do not collide and overlap.

        Currently, while running Woocommerce 2.1.12 a feature called 'Persistent Cart' is not allowed us to empty the cart for every…

        • same order number and invoice number

          Hi,

          It would be awesome for accounting to have the same order and invoice number. Let me explain.

          If a payment is made by credit and fail... an order is created, the customer then make a new order and new payment.

          This way order and invoice do not have the same number.

          For accounting we lose of time with this....

          Also, it would be good to link PDF invoices and Order number in CSV exporter :) => ++++

                • Add Balanced payments gateway support

                  Please support Balanced payments gateway!

                  This is a growing payment gateway. You can see some of the demand by WooCommerce users here: https://github.com/balanced/balanced-api/issues/268

                  It appears there is a free plug-in available (https://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-gateway-balanced-payments/), but I'm concerned about this staying up-to-date.

                    We are working on a webshop with thousands of products. Using the Brands plugin, it would be really nice to have a column in the admin product list that tells us witch brand the different products belongs to. Could be a choice in Screen Settings.

                    • Bring back the old Canvas Options Menu

                      The new admin options panel was a frustrating development to say the least. The new setup does not improve aesthetic, speed, organization or anything else that I can think of.

                      • Magazine layout enhancements based on categories

                        I have been using the canvas theme for some time and I am always looking forward to new updates. I have a question here that I am sure has been asked in the past but with the Canvas theme/framework a little more mature these days I was wondering if anything like this is on the horizon. I use the magazine page template layout and it has been fine however technically its just a layout that gives a 2 column layout on page at some point and I guess is a way to squeeze more content onto the page which is…

                        • Add conditional logic in Woocommerce composite products scenario

                          Scenarios are great, but still very basic as far as conditional logic is concerned.

                          Here's a list of interesting additions:
                          - Enable Component specific scenarios as opposed to having to systematically involve every component of composite product

                          - Conditional components (if a specific component is selected then other component becomes available/unavailable, defaults to a specific value or is hidden/displayed).

                            Similar to a regular product, it would be great if you could enter a Sale Price, which would display on the front end, along side the regular price.

                              I have tried the "Nelio External Featured Image" plugin to set featured image using a URL but the Canvas theme aparently uses different hooks(?) It is a pain having to set the featured image each time and/or loading the post's external image link into the media library in order to set it as the featured image.

                                Version 1.0.9 - Commission transaction of vendor's product is not linked to Order ID. When looking at report, there is no clue for admin for how each commission transaction is related to which order.

                                In addition, if order is cancelled or refunded, the commission should be revoked (but it's not in this version).

                                • Product variations links for pricing tables

                                  I recommend adding an option that would allow webmasters to add different URL shortlinks to different product options.

                                  For example, suppose variable product 123 has variations A, B, and C. I'd like to be able to access each variation as a default with links
                                  mywebsite.com/product/123/A
                                  mywebsite.com/product/123/B
                                  mywebsite.com/product/123/C

                                  Or something to that effect.

                                  This way, I could create a pricing table using my theme or any pricing-table plugin, that could compare different products and/or variations within a single product.

                                  For example, I have different subscription options with different payment amounts with woosubscriptions variable subscription. I'd like to be able to publish…

                                    • Integrate Barcode Scanner with Multi Use Coupons

                                      It would be cool if users can purchase gift certificates which can be printed out and then scanned using a barcode scanner.

                                      • drop down login area

                                        I would like to see a drop down login/resgister area to keep customer on same page instead of redirecting to My account page. I tried the plugin named SimpleModal Login but once logged in, it took user to dashboard instead of staying in the store.

                                        • Assign a shipping method and specific cost and specific free shipping to a chosen group

                                          All is in the title. Sorry for my bad English but I will try to explain:
                                          I have two groups of customers, individuals ans professionals. The prices are not the same, the margins are not the same and I think to assign a specific shipping method for professionals, with a specific free shipping level for them and a specific shipping cost under a level.
                                          Exemple :
                                          Mr Blue (individual)order for 59€, shipping cost : 7€, shipping method : LaPoste
                                          Mr Blue order for 60€, shipping cost : free, shipping method : LaPoste
                                          Mr Pink (professional) order for 499€, shipping cost…
