  1. Combine page templates, widgetized pages and Woosidebar

    Why not combine Page Templates, Woosidebar and a plugin like:
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/widgetize-pages-light/

    Full combine these featured to have each page individually widgetized.

    • It would be useful if you could have the option of a round corner box background just in the content area in full width option

      Currently you offer a boxed theme option, but this doesn't work with the full width style in Canvas. What would be useful is to have an option that allows us to add a boxed content background when in full width that can be shown with or without a shadow as well.

      • Call to Action shortcode or content area for Canvas

        Please add a 'Promotional Banner Module' as seen in Hustle [http://demo2.woothemes.com/?name=hustle] for Canvas. With that, the ability to order, reorder modules. That would be WOO-tastic! Thank you for your consideration :)

        • Add a metabox listing categories and tags so that a user can list only specific posts on a page.

          When creating sites, clients often want several types of pages that show specific posts with a tag or category. For example, in the past I have been asked for:

          - A 'News' page which only lists posts with the category 'News'
          - A 'Jobs / Vacancies / Volunteering’s' page which only lists posts with the category 'Jobs'.
          - A ‘Case Studies’ page which only lists posts with the category ‘Case.

          I have seen other themes a meta box within the page edit screen, where the user can tick select an option to show posts after the content. The posts are…

            • Updating the social media icons for the footer widget

              The social media icons are a bit outdated (e.g., they don't have the newer, flat look).

              • Improving the UX for non-developers

                I want to ask if there is any way that in future releases, you can make the framework even more customizable without going into the CSS and changing it (e.g., something as simple as allowing for the e-mail in the footer widget menu to come above the phone number, or the ability to add Twitter to that same menu).

                • Support Lazy Load plugin

                  Support Lazy Load to improve page load time (without affecting SEO). Lazy Load only loads images that are visible to the visitor:
                  http://wordpress.org/plugins/lazy-load/

                  Unfortunately Lazy Load did not work out-of-the-box with my author profile below posts and also fails with the WooThemes shortcode social_icon from:
                  http://docs.woothemes.com/document/shortcodes/

                  These images didn't load at all. Other images load fine.

                  Might have something to do with the "circle effect" over these images (Canvas theme). WooThemes considers it a 3th party issue but also suggested to drop a line here for integration.

                  Would be nice if we could find out what stops the images from…

                    • Add a check box in the advanced woo-sidebars settings, for all sub-pages to inherit the parent page widget area

                      Add a check box in the advanced woo-sidebars settings, for all sub-pages to inherit the parent page widget area.

                      Currently, you can use a page template and assign all pages that generic template simply for the widget area to show in the sidebar

                      Or, we elected to use the "Widget Logic" plugin to assign widgets to specific pages using "is_tree()" function by Chris Coyier - http://css-tricks.com/snippets/wordpress/if-page-is-parent-or-child/

                      Both will work. The second approach cuts out a step, but it muddies up the Primary/Secondary widget meta boxes.

                      The first step is still a hassle, need to set a page template, means editing…

                      • Choose per page whether layout is full width or boxed

                        I love that I can now use the Business template in full width with full width slider, header and footer. But I really want to have the rest of the site use boxed layout. ie. I just want full width on the home page, not everywhere.

                        As soon as I enable boxed, it applies everywhere - can I turn it off on the home page please? That way I can have a huge full page home that is like a book cover - open and boxed layout underneath.

                        I hope I have explained this in enough ways! :-)

                          • Please create a theme like Medium.com

                            Please create a theme with static / slow-moving images that don't scroll at the same speed as the page scrolls ... does this make sense? I'm sure there's a technical word for it, but it's like the images are full-bleed and they are less interactive than the rest of the content. You see this a lot on medium.com. Thanks!

                                The current lightbox setting in Canvas is just fine for single images. Could we expand this to video and galleries? A plugin with Woo's name on it would be much more credible than all those plugins floating around in the Repository.

                                  I'm looking for a simple promotional banner plugin that would function like the one on woothemes.com – fullwidth banner at the top of the home page, above all other content.

                                  To my surprise, I'm having trouble finding such a thing... Seems like it would be popular – it's such an effective way to draw visitors attention to new promotions etc, without the annoyance of a content-obscuring pop-up (I tried using Woo's splash pop-up plugin, but decided it's not for me).

                                  Is the code you guys use for those banners custom? If so, could it be released as a plugin? I'd…

                                    2. Seperate the navigation elements into easier, more independant peices. It's irritating as heck to get the submenus to do something different the menu items. Also difficult to identify the code pieces to make customizations. For example, I wanted my menu highlight background to be transparent because I don't like the hover highlight when I am on the active area. A bold link would have been better for my taste. But, I couldn't do…

                                      I was looking at this theme, and asked the Woo team if it was commerce enabled, but sadly not its an old theme, I did purchase a Premium press classified theme, the demo looks great however flexibility with styling and getting it to look at least modern was a nightmare by the standards of 2013-2014 in creativity. you can change things like background, and so forth,but it just didn't cut it, fr my site that will be well publicized on Radio and TV and Print media.

                                      So I…

                                        Add the offset http://codex.wordpress.org/Making_Custom_Queries_using_Offset_and_Pagination feature to the widgets of the theme superstore.

                                        I think we miss the opportunity to use the same widget twice, when creating a front page with the theme superstore. With the offset feature we would be able to do this
