  1. Header Lead Capture in themes

    It would be great if you could have themes that have the lead capture information in the header in all of your themes.

    It will make it easier to get leads to optin for more information.

      • widgetized fluid homepage

        Greetings!
        I really want to have a couple of fluid rows in my homepage like the woothemes site homepage, http://www.woothemes.com/

        My purpose here is that I will make a couple of horizontal fluid bars in my homepage with different background colors. Like in the woothemes homepage section that says,
        ALL OUR THEMES FOR $399. That is a fluid section with a nice background image (with laptop) which is fluid. The background is completely extended.

        So in the widget section, every text widget is a fluid section so that we can just set a specific background color if we wish too…

        • Simplify the Canvas theme options

          Although canvas has a great engine, there are far too many theme options, and it's very confusing to use them for any purpose other than minor tweaks. I had my wife use canvas for a website, and she was confused. I personally disable all styles and use a child stylesheet, so it's not a problem for me, but for someone not too familiar with CSS, the 10+ typography, color, and border options are overkill. Everything needs to be simplified, otherwise one needs to spend way too much time to change the look. I've recently started using pagelines for this reason,…

          • Built in font-resizer for W3C web accessibility compliance

            I've tried to use all the available Font Resizer plugins as the client I'm creating a site for wants W3C web accessibility compliance for people with disabilities, in particular visual impairment (they are an opticians so this is important to them).

            None of the 6 plugins I tried work with Canvas, so this would be an ideal opportunity to make Canvas/the framework more internationally compliant.

                  • Superstore theme product description

                    To have the option to place the product description under the product images and under the short product description. At this moment the width of the product description is very narrow, so if you have a little bit more text, you have to scroll a lot.

                      • Change the words on the bottom right of the Themes: "Designed by Woo Themes"

                        Reason: Web Designers doing"Business" using Woo Themes will of course delete the word Designed by Woo Themes as they do not want their Client to think that their website was Designed by someone other than their Web Design Company.
                        Sorry if the Woo Theme Designers feel left out.. But this is the reality: if your company Woo just eliminates the word Designed from “Designed by Woo Themes” there will be a better chance for the Woo Logo to remain on all of the Websites “out there” using your Themes and your link “Woo Themes” will not be deleted.
                        Thanks for…

                            Please give back the Option to adjust the Business sliders hight in theme options. Now we are stuck with a fixed hight and so far the custom code to overwrite the fixed hight does not work. Why was this great option taken out of the themes options I wonder?

                                • Add index keys to $options array

                                  If the theme options array had index keys, then specific options could be more easily unset/disabled via child themes using the woo_options_add ( $options ) function. Currently, I have to do some recursive array searching.

                                  However, if the array was structured like so:

                                  $options['alt-stylesheet'] = array( 'name' => __( 'Theme Stylesheet', 'woothemes' ),
                                  'desc' => __( 'Select your themes alternative color scheme.', 'woothemes' ),
                                  'id' => $shortname . '_alt_stylesheet',
                                  'std' => 'default.css',
                                  'type' => 'select',
                                  'options' => $alt_stylesheets );

                                  Then a child theme could unset this option simply

                                  unset( $options['alt-stylesheet' ] );

                                  This shouldn't have any back-compat issues either.

                                    `
                                    include( get_template_directory() . '/search-form.php' );
                                    `

                                    with

                                    `
                                    locate_template( 'search-form.php', true );
                                    `

                                    then child themes can override the search form without needing to hack the widget, or re-load the widget.

                                    • have full width layout (as per canvas) available for all themes

                                      All my sites are full width. If te individual pages and posts can be full width, and the theme options.php can be overriden to enable this default then it shouldnt be too hard to add full width as a default for all the themes that support this

                                      Sidebars are distracting and take up valuable screen estate for traditional website s made with your themes

                                      • For the Cause - make the post title or woocommerce category show up in subheader

                                        it would be great if the templates for the WooCommerce category pages showed the category title in the subheader, rather than just "shop.” And for the blog, the blog title was display in the top as an option, rather than "blog"

                                        • Allow Multiple Plugins / Child-Themes to Add Theme Options

                                          Reference this article: http://support.woothemes.com/entries/22521107-Customizing-theme-options-through-a-child-theme?flash_digest=de2105f89758d8b2ecf4735cfe3b303d9dde25c9

                                          The current method works fine for a single child-theme or plugin. When multiple independent plugins each define function: woo_options_add() the site crashes.

                                          A better design - maybe using hooks - would resolve the potential conflict issue.
