Theme Ideas

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

How can we improve WooThemes themes?

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 support and comment on it.

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

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

  1. List typography options as h1, h2, etc

    In Hustle, the typography options aren't listed by h1 but by where they show up. This makes it very complicated to determine the look and feel of the overall site AND I don't have control over what search engines will favor when tagged h1. For example, on the home page the "Latest Articles" heading is h1 - not the actual content of the page.

    • Full Canvas Support for Aesop Story Engine

      I would love to see full functionality support for the Aesop Story Engine, making Canvas one of the over-all best themes for the emerging market of storytelling WordPress themes. I'm dying to create and publish beautiful long form content but their are some minor display issues that undercut the power of the Aesop Story Engine on Canvas right now.

      • Add "our team" support in Canvas

        Our Team is a great plugin, but now we would like to have layout support rolled into themes, such as Canvas.

        • More control over styling menus

          Separate the styling of the submenu from the primary hover styling. Right now there is a single setting of "hover / submenu" for background color and text color. It would be great if we could style these separately. Also, it would be great to be able to set menu background colors to transparent and to be able to assign a background image.

          • Make Canvas Markup Accessible (Improve Canvas Accessibility)

            I've come across a handful of things that should be tweaked so that Canvas is WCAG2AA compliant. This important for government, businesses and organizations that face legal liability if they not in compliance.

            1. When rendered, the primary navigation menu is considered not properly nested because it is h3 instead of h2:
            ex: <h3>Primary Navigation</h3><ul id="main-nav" class="nav fl"> ...

            2. Likewise for the responsive menu, it is not properly nested with an h2 tag preceding it.
            <h3 class="nav-toggle icon"><a href="#navigation">Navigatio...</h3>

            3. Heading into WCAG now, the search widget is missing a label element/title attribute. (Is this core wordpress widget now?…

            • Introduce strict naming convention

              The inconsistent naming that is used for WooThemes Themes, Plugins, Classes, Functions, Text Domains, ... should be fixed by introducing something like a 'WooThemes Naming Convention'.

              Don't misunderstand me, your plugins (and also those sold by other authors via WooThemes) are awesome and a real time-saver. But, for example, integrating WooThemes plugins into a non-WooThemes theme, can be really exhausting.

              For example Sensei: Sensei's plugin folder itself is named 'woothemes-sensei', but the folders of (free) plugins are named 'sensei-certificates' etc. Why not just call all folders 'woothemes-sensei-%s'? (replace %s with that addons name)

              The same for the plugin names: In…

              • Add hook to woo_image to define fallback src

                In woo_image, just before checking for a generic `get_placeholder_image_url`, it would be great if there was a way to pass, through a hook, a function to define a custom image.

                In my case, I'd like to have the featured image, if there isn't, the first image in the post and (here it comes) if there isn't, an image based on the tags/categories of the page. I have a custom function that returns the appropriate image, but it's impossible to hook it into woo_image without patching the framework every time it's updated.

                • Carousels

                  I'm a photographer, I wanted to start selling things on my site and this theme seemed to be the best. I wasn't happy about not being able to change the homepage that much, it would be nice if you had an option to add a carousel. Also when I write a blog post I would prefer seeing a featured image than my profile photo.

                  Thanks

                    • portfolio plugin - display categoriesabove the projects loop built into canvas

                      "Display a category menu above the projects loop" (http://docs.woothemes.com/document/display-a-category-menu-above-the-projects-loop/) code should be built into canvas so projects display like how the portfolio used to display in canvas. In the theme options for canvas you can have a tick box to turn it on or off.

                      • Mobile Navigation Width Control

                        Because various navigations may end up being wrapped on devices like iPad in vertical position - it would be great to have an option to set the width that the mobile navigation kicks in. So, instead of 767, you can set width to 980 giving better navigation compatibility.

                                I want the possibility/option to show the product description underneath an image in the Superstore theme. Now it's a very narrow and long scrolling product description.

                                For example, I would like to be it like this: http://www.eiwitpoeder.nl/product/snackaroons-datecashews/ and not like this: http://www.kokosoliebestellen.nl/shop/extra-vierge-biologische-kokosboter-500-ml-dr-goerg/.

                                • Mashable-style Child Theme for Canvas

                                  Could we have a child-theme for Canvas that has a Mashable-style to it please?
                                  This would mean a minimalist but aesthetically pleasing magazine style homepage and above all, really good social media integration.
                                  The current magazine template for Canvas, on its own, is just not aesthetically good enough without coding tweaks.
                                  See www.mashable.com

                                  • 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".

                                    • 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…

                                        • Set featured image by first image in post whether it is in media library or external url (Canvas)

                                          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.
