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".

  1. Selling affiliate products directly

    A way to not only sell affiliate products directly from your own store, but for the affiliate orders to be processed (back to the vendor) automatically. This would be really handy, and might even need a slight modification of the product retailers plugin.

    • Availability for a "one-off" webinar/seminar

      For instance, I want to run a random webinar on a particular date at a particular time. It would be cool if I could just choose the date, time and length of session opposed to setting all of the ranges that the event is "not taking place" at.
      Thanks

      • WooCommerce Bookings - Available Date Drop Down Instead of Date Picker

        Our client runs hundreds of courses, across more than 20 locations. I've had to set up the same course for every venue. They only have one available start date per month for each course and location. It would be great to have the option to display a drop down list of available dates, rather than a very empty calendar.

        • Add link to Icons for Features Icons

          The Icons for Features plugin does not link the feature’s icon to the target page of the feature (custom url in my case), whereas the Featured image in the regular Features plugin links to the target page (either the features post or the custom url) just fine. Thus, only the feature title is linked.

          No big deal, but I do like using FontAwesome.

            • Add Projects to more than one category and have them work!

              I'm using Projects by Woothemes on a school site with main projects page at http://www.hollandparkprimary.org.uk/projects/

              I want each class to have their recent projects listed automatically on their individual class pages. So i've created project categories for each class. Then on each class page, I'll add the project shortcode to exclude all other projects except the category that applies to that class.

              So for example, on Class 1 page (http://www.hollandparkprimary.org.uk/classes/class-1a/) I've used the following

              [projects limit="12" columns="3" orderby="date" order="desc" exclude_categories="97,98,100,101,102,103,104,105,106,107,108,109,110"]

              Class 1A is project category '99'

              This works well in testing.

              However, sometimes a class will do a…

                These are the bigest problems I faced with Sensie. without these options Sensie has not helped me much. :(
                1) How to add mathematical formulas for my quizzes?
                2) How to add pictures on to quizzes?
                3) how to do auto grading for quizzes questions such multiple lines, fill
                in blanks etc. ( at the moment I can load answers only for MCQ and
                true/Falls questions)

                • WooThemes Support Escalation

                  =========================
                  WooThemes Support Escalation
                  =========================

                  Considering the you have now launched "WooCommerce Bookings" it would be both a great demonstration of confidence in your own product, and another way to monetise your site by offering a "Support Ticket Escalation Service". This could be a one-off payment that would escalate the customer's Support Ticket to a 24-hour or suitable time frame. I have a small business and have situations where I require a different support response to normal and would be happy to pay $20-30 ofr an escalated level of support/response. Particularly in situations where my site may be down.

                  • Reporting for products with Sale pricing

                    I'd like to see when items are sold at Sale Price as well as Regular Price.
                    Current WooComm reporting will show the price of items sold, and if a purchase was made with a coupon code, but where the item has a Regular Price and a Sale Price, reporting will only show whatever price the product sold for.

                    • I use this snipet to display Number Of Products Sold: <?php add_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'wc_product_sold_count', 11

                      I use this snipet to display Number Of Products Sold:

                      <?php
                      add_action( 'woocommerce_single_product_summary', 'wc_product_sold_count', 11 );
                      function wc_product_sold_count()
                      {
                      global $product;
                      $units_sold = get_post_meta( $product->id, 'total_sales', true );
                      echo '<p>' . sprintf( __( 'Units Sold: %s', 'woocommerce' ), $units_sold ) . '</p>';
                      }
                      ?>
                      But when the order being canceled, it doesn't change anything. It should show the number before the order was placed. Ex:

                      Before placing order: 10 after placing order : 15 Cancel order : 15 (it's still there) but I want it's 10

                      I noticed if i cancel an order, i still get the same unites sold…

                        • True-up renewals (band-aid pricing)

                          I've got several renewals coming up. These are add-ons purchased a few weeks/months apart during site setup and refinement.

                          It would be nice to have the option to true up these subscriptions to the same renewal date. Pro-rate the difference for whatever is coming up.

                          This would avoid me going to my boss/client/mother/gandolf multiple times hearing them gripe about yet another WooCommerce fee. All at once would work nicely.

                          Call it band-aid pricing. Get it over with one quick shot.

                          • Product Vendor extension should absolutely have an import feature of vendors

                            The Product Vendor extension should absolutely have a feature to import just only vendors.

                            Without this feature for my business it is unusable that extension, unfortunately...

                            Do you have a plan for such a feature?
                            Thanks in advance

                              Okey, we have downloadable+virtual product, with limit of 2 downloads.
                              There would be great if administrator can upgrade that product version, for example from version 1.0 to 1.1 etc. and reset download limits for all users who bought that product before. Because for now we must enter each user and reset that limit manually when new version comes up.

                              • Digital Subscriptions - Restrict Newer Subscribers from Viewing Older Content

                                Our Digital Subscribers receive a new downloadable PDF file each quarter. So each quarter, we upload the new PDF file to the digital subscription product, however newer subscribers are able to view the older digital downloads.

                                As a workaround, we are creating separate subscriptions for each quarter (i.e. Fall 2014, Winter 2014, etc) and uploading the PDF file to each subscription product. It's a bit of a manual process and I think there could be others out there with a similar need as ours.

                                Adding something like a timestamp and restricting access to subscribers if they subscribed after the file…

                                • Product Vendors - See, process and complete their own orders

                                  I really need the vendors to see, process and complete their own orders.

                                  They should not be able to see the other vendors' orders!

                                    • Create an Automotive Theme! :-)

                                      Make it easy to import TXT, XML or CSV from the various feeds that exists in DMS Inventory systems. In the USA, this would be wildly popular, but NONE of the current themes add up.

                                      • WooCommerce Quick View - Make Customization Easier for non-technical people

                                        I really like the Quick View plug-in, but unfortunately the Quick View button negative affects my display on the product pages with my theme (Karma, a WooCommerce compatible theme). It shifts all the products on the product pages where they don't flow very well. In order to customize the Quick View button so it doesn't impact my layout, I have to spend time with experimenting with button sizes AND I have to log in to my server to customize the button in the theme.
