  1. 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).

        • 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.

                      • 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?

                          • WooCommerce / Physical Store Integration System

                            My current client is thinking of dropping their website entirely due to problems with inventory management. They currently are using a Wordpress site with WooCommerce. All of their inventory is listed on the website and is sold in their physical store. The problem is that when they sell items in-store, the products need to be adjusted separately in WooCommerce. I am looking for a single system that will integrate POS, inventory management, and bookkeeping in the physical store and on the website.

                            In fact, I have had potential clients who either chose not to have a website or dropped their…

                            • 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…

                              • Add a date picker to Product Add-ons wordpress plugin

                                My website is about selling tours, and a client can book various tours at the same time.
                                So i would find it very helpful to include a date picker calendar field to the plug in so that they can choose when to do the tour.

                                thanks

                                • Add 1 on 1 mentoring to Sensei

                                  Would like to add 1 on 1 mentoring to our site. The messaging platform with sensei would work great for this, but I would like our students to be able to message us without a lesson. The mentoring would not include videos, only messaging and critiquing. Possibly being able to share files and images.

                                  • Note taking for Students

                                    It would be great that with Sensei a student could take notes while in the lesson. It could be similar to the Quiz setup. There would be a paragraph of text and below that a multiple line text box (same as quiz box) and Admin can decide if there needs to be a text box after each paragraph and so on. The student would be able to save their place, just like the quiz, and come back and edit/add to it, just like the quiz. Obviously the notes would be user specific. This would be a huge feature for us,…

                                      If there are issues or updates that effectively break my site I would like to be notified asap by email? rather than find out for myself by way of NON SALES / SALES GRINDING TO A HALT so I can do everything possible to rectify the situation.

                                      • Product Vendors - Option for Vendor to mange order status

                                        The product vendors plugin should have options for vendors to manage and update the status of the order. The site admin should be able to configure this setting - Vendors to see orders and manage orders.

                                        Vendors should be able to change the order status to processing and then complete.

                                        • Sensei: Make Course active again when a new Lesson is added

                                          There may be many courses where an instructor will be adding lessons to the course over the length of the course. The suggestion is to make the Course refresh back to Active Courses when a new lesson is added. Currently the courses go to Completed Courses in the dashboard and stay there when a new unit is added.
