  1. Projects Plugin

    Allow the Projects Plugin to open up video in the lightbox. In my previous portfolio ive shown a lot of video work. Projects works great for still images but doesnt allow video.

    • Canvas Page & Post Title Text and Background Setting

      There is only one place in the various Canvas edit pages that deals with setting post and page titles (Posts edit page) and it only deals with the type style and color of both posts and pages in a single setting. I would be nicer to have a background color for post and page titles and have them be different. The only way to do this is to use custom css as follows:

      .page .title {
      padding: 10px 0px 0px 10px;
      background-color: #0e5555;
      color: #ffffff;
      height: 2em;
      }

      .post .title {
      padding: 10px 0px 0px 10px;
      background-color: #000000;
      color: #dbdee9; …

      • Make Canvas a modular design

        Make canavas more stylable by adding a page builder that can be found in Divi from elegant themes, this way users can customize every single aspect of the page. Woo have a great frame work and would i think really do a great job

        • Canvas - full width Magazine slider

          At 5.5 their is only the possibility to set the full width slider on the business layout. I think it would be quiet nice to get the same function on magazine layout.

          • Three steps plugin to create his own website

            Wordpress is simple to use when you know the admin and the different menus. But when you first use it it is difficult to know where things are and how to use them.

            I suggest that you create a plugin that allows a new user to create his website in three easy steps. This means that wordpress is already installed.
            1. create your user account
            2. change your logo and header image
            3. personalize your default page layout (color and font)

            That's is. Now the user can create contents and promote his page to his friends and customers.

            • >> sticky menu for canvas <<

              Hey guys,

              Since twitter starting to use bootstrap the sticky menu has become very popular option. Many wordpress themes, including 2 of yours already have it. And i read a couple of UX articles really siting their benefits...

              I would love the option to turn it on or off.

              I have hacked this in for 2 websites already but it is a bit tricky with the updates.

              • I would like to suggest you to create a responsive theme designed for news

                I would like to suggest you to create a responsive theme designed for news, very simple but modern with a quick infinite scrolling and responsive ads for adsense (or other...), a theme style as the famous theme Sahifa, MagXP or Braxton.

                • background image sizes

                  for background images (header, full-width header, body etc) offer a size option that includes cover, and contain as options.

                  This might actually be Framework suggestion. Seems like it shouldn't be difficult to add.

                  • Update the Canvas screenshot.png please?

                    The Canvas screenshot.png is old and doesn't match the rest of your themes. Hardly a big deal, but something I continue to check on with each update. Thanks!

                    • Canvas BbPress and BuddyPress support is needed

                      Frankly speaking, woothemes can't keep declining requests for Buddypress and BBpress by saying "they are not part of our core focus / expertise." The industry needs a well designed themes for Buddypress and Bbpress from a leaders like you, it's not practical to decline it while the market is rapidly grow and such solution is unavailable through you.

                      • Integrate a Drop-Down option for Project Categories Widget

                        Most of the list widgets (such as Categories and Archives) have the option to present the elements in a List or in a Drop-Down box. I prefer the Drop-Down because it takes up less room. Unfortunately, the WooThemes Project Categories Widget only presents the elements as a list. For consistency, I'd like to see the WooThemes Project Categories widget offer a drop-down option.

                        • Background images on a business page

                          Include a Shortcode to add different background images on a business page, so text can be written on top of the image. When you are writing a long page it would help to break it up

                          Thanks!!

                            • Canvas Widgets - Different Styling

                              It would be great if you could specify different styling for the header widget and footer widgets as you don't always want them to look the same as the sidebar widgets.

                              On a similar note, it would be great to able to add colour to the columns the widgets are in. I found a hack but it would be great it was an option

                              • WC Paid Photo Contest Theme

                                Creating a template for the Photo competitions with WC.

                                I would like to see a template that will allow people to login, choose a category and upload a photo (repeat as any time as they like) and then pay, and receive a notification of payment. Is there such a template?

                                Yes, you can do that with PHP and MySql easily, we have been doing it for 15 years (photoaward.com), but would be nice to make a nicely designed template that everyone can use with WC.

                                I'll be willing to pay someone to create it if there is enough interest.

                                  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!

                                    • Scale slider images in For The Cause to match the image's width and height

                                      The behavior you guys chose for the image is for it to sometimes stretch to fill all of the horizontal space (like the way it is at 1920 pixels wide) and sometimes the width stops scaling and you start cropping the side (like at 1200 pixes wide).

                                      The vertical space seems to be limited to 350px, so if the image is stretched (or shrunk) you don't get to see the whole thing.
                                      I'm guessing that most, if not all, users would get a much better benefit from having the image stretch in width and height, and have the rest of…

                                        I'm currently using Subscribe & Connect in WooThemes Canvas via the Framework and was looking into the Subscribe/Connect plugin as you'll probably disable the Framework version in the near future.

                                        I'm missing Related posts in the plugin Subscribe/Connect.

                                        • Adding custom codes on a hook intended for the homepage only

                                          Greetings!

                                          I want to add a custom html codes and short codes using "hook" and I want the codes to be shown (to take effect) exclusively in the homepage.

                                          I have tried adding under "Main" then "Executed after the closing#content DIV tag".. , it looks good in the homepage but the output is also showing on the other pages. How can I make it only in the homepage?
