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. Update the Fashionable Hero to a Slider

    Currently the Fashionable Hero is only static. I would be helpful if you could update the Hero to be a slider (even if only 3 Images rotate).
    This would enhance the introduction of new products, increase sales and the site would appear less static. I would even pay for this.

    Please take this feature into account.

    Cheers,
    Marco

      • WooCommerce Bookings should query Google Calendar for availability

        It would be great if the Bookings plugin checked the connected Google Calendar before showing available dates and time slots.

        I have a Google Calendar as my main calendar. I want clients to be able to book my time via the Booking plugin, but I need to ensure that someone booking my time does not get presented with availability when I am already booked through some other method. I especially need to be able to block out a time slot on my phone while I'm out and about, and have that reflected on the site immediately.

        If it's an incentive,…

        • Placeholder text in 'contact_form' shortcode

          Unlike the shortcodes of other contact form plugins, Canvas's 'contact_form' shortcode does not support placeholder text.

          This would be easy to implement (even if it only took the label value and used that as the placeholder value) and could mean minimal contact forms could be created (e.g., to go in a page footer) without having to use an additional plugin (such as Contact Form 7).

          • Bulk edit for variation images

            A way to indicate easily / in bulk the variation images instead of having to open all variations & select the photos from the media library

            It would be handy if you have a bulk overview (or at least per product) to indicate which variation uses which photo of the photo gallery of that product...

            Alternative / better would be to be able to link an image to a certain attribute (f.e. this image is valid for all combinations with color = green, no matter which size has been selected)

            • Australia Post needs envelope (prepaid) support

              To the existing Australia Post shipping method, would be very useful to have prepaid envelope support, i.e. Express domestic (C4 envelope, $6.00), International Express (C5, $15.75) etc...I sell SIM cards and ship in envelopes, not my own packaging or satchels.

              Would be great to also tag a product (if Aus Post method installed) as envelope only up to a max # of products in an envelope.

              • Edit number of people for bookable products - WooCommerce Bookings

                When you add a bookable product to the cart, there is no way to edit the number of people. With normal products, you can edit the quantity but there is no way for users to edit the number of places required. To change the number of places, you have to remove the item from your cart, go back to the bookable product page and then select the required number of people and add it again - not very user-friendly!

                • Product Vendors - Allow vendors to sell products site admin has already created

                  There should be an option to allow vendors to pick from products that are already created by the site admin. So instead of only assigning products to vendors, they should be able to choose the products that already exist that they want to sell. This would enable an affiliate selling platform as well, since a vendor can now just sign up and sell your products for you and collect a commission from the sale.

                  • Single Purchase or Auto-Renew Products

                    Many websites are offering products to be purchased once or auto-renewed every 'x' amount of weeks. This would be an extremely useful addition to Woocommerce Subscriptions, provided that the correct payment gateway is enabled.

                      Create Mix n Match option to allow Customers to create their own custom bundle from a selection of products for a single price.

                      Example: Pick 14 items from a selection of 10 products for one price. Optional quantities for each product as long as Total selected adds up to 14.

                      • Separate Billing & User Account info During Checkout

                        When a product is purchased, and a user account is forced on the customer, woocommerce assumes that the info provided for the billing info is the same as the account info.

                        In reality it is not always that way. For many purchasers, the billing information is different from the user account information. It would be very useful to provide separate inputs for billing vs.user data to solve the confusion created by this.

                        • Wootickets: Allow users& organizer to upload event photos to event an gallery

                          In many cases events where are sold to customers, the attendees and/or the Organizers take pictures at the event... assuming the event was enjoyable to attend.

                          It would be a great marketing feature to allow User and Organizers to upload photos to a gallery attributed to that Event. That way newer customers will be able to see imagery from past events, thereby prompting them to join in on the fun and purchase a ticket to the next event.

                            • Update For Brands Plugin - Permalink

                              The brand plugin should have an additional feature to change the Product Permalink base.

                              "Shop base with Brand" & "Product base with Brand" - This will dynamically insert the brand name after the "Shop" or "Product" base . Also a function to have a default fallback to the store name or a custom name if no brand name is chosen for a particular product.

                              This would have a huge benefit both for re-marketing ads allowing brand based ads with wildcards for the URLs, plus would add a nice SEO boost to the products by having more keywords in the URL…

                              • Take Payment and Process Orders in back-end

                                If you have customers who call you to place orders, you now have to log out of your admin access, pretend to be them (which is hard if they're existing customers), and place an order through the front end cart.

                                It would be better if, as part of Woocommerce > Orders > Add Order you could take their payment info and process the payment.

                                • Combining 'Product Add-ons' and 'Variation Swatches and Photos'

                                  I would like the ability to select images for the product add-ons, just like with normal attributes, so the front end shows them instead of radio buttons or select boxes.

                                  • "Per vendor" notification

                                    I am using the vendors plugin and advance notifications.
                                    We need a "per vendor" trigger for notifications so vendors can know when somebody has ordered something from them!

                                    • Make coupon for a free lesson incl quiz

                                      Make coupon for a free lesson incl quiz

                                      Is it possible to make a coupon so that we can give people who register but have not purchased a lesson the chance of following one lesson for free incl the quiz to test their knowledge?

                                      This way we can collect data and have an additional option to convert interested persons into buyers.

                                      I know that you can flag a lesson as free but the use of a coupon would be beneficial

                                        • Add an akismet approval queue

                                          It would be great if you guys integrated with akismet on registration forms and had an "approval queue" in the admin for those found to be spam so if they were legit you can mark as ham. As it stands now there is no way to prevent or throttle malicious signups. You can apply with any info you want and there is no way to protect against that. Bots can cause chaos in short order.

                                          We historically would use a captcha but the problem with captchas is they are 99% breakable now, our own wordpress login captcha was beatable using…
