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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

  1. Set license keys as constant in wp-config.php

    There should be the ability to set license keys as constants in wp-config.php.

    This would be a huge timesaver for those of us with multiple staging areas (local dev machines + live dev server + staging server + master).

    Premium plugins that allow this already include Akismet, Gravity Forms, WP Migrate DB Pro, and many others.

    I imagine it would help Woo sell more license upgrades too, so there's a financial incentive as well as serving the devs and agencies amongst the customers.

    It could also work well with a single license a la http://ideas.woothemes.com/forums/72423-general-ideas/suggestions/4070817-remove-license-system-in-place-of-woo-login

    • Better Permalinks for Projects

      The permalink structure for Projects is /project/ONECATEGORY/PROJECTSLUG.

      However, the ONECATEGORY displayed in the permalink is based on an alphabetization of ALL category slugs, even if there is hierarchy.

      Example: A project called "bananacandy" is categorized with...

      Fruits (X)
      -Yellow Fruits
      --Bananas (X)
      --Plantains
      -Sweetness
      --Very Sweet (X)
      --Less Sweet

      The permalink for this project would be: /projects/bananas/bananacandy

      (because bananas is the first category alphabetically across all selected categories)

      Whereas it should be:
      /projects/fruits/bananacandy

      I'm fine with having to set up 1-1 top-level categories for projects (vs. projects/PROJECTSLUG), but having a project permalink structure based on alphabetization of all categories that…

      • Ability to export licence keys generated by Software Add On

        I was a bit surprised to discover that the Software Add On plug-in has no way of exporting a list of generated licence keys.

        I'm trying to set up a new upgradable product so need to populate a field for the product with existing keys. The only way to do this seems to be to go through each order individually and copy paste them out. With about 250 orders to go through I'm not relishing this.

        Less of an idea this, more of a 'why does it not already exist'?

          You should provide a simple child theme for Canvas. As simple as it's supposed to be, the tutorial located on this site doesn't generate a functional Canvas child theme. Canvas is one of your premiere themes, users shouldn't be required to pay for custom programming for a child theme.

            • Add Sendy.co ($1 for 10.000 messages) to Subscribe/Connect

              As newsletters are currently limited to a few well known, I'd like to be able to add Sendy.co as that will probably be the one I'll be using in the near future.

              Sendy.co has a fixed price after which you send messages via Amazon SES ($1 per 10.000 messages).

              At the moment I use Feedburner but Sendy.co is more flexible and I expect Google to phase out Feedburner.

                • Allow wooslider to accept slide "size" parameter in slide_type="slides" mode

                  Currently wooslider seems to have an arbitrary limitation where the size parameter isnt accepted if in slide_type="slides" mode.

                  this is a deal breaker for my client, who wants to be able to create and maintain slideshows that will display at an appropriate size not at the original size or the large size or any other arbitrary size.

                  • Thresholds for Points and Rewards Extension

                    My client has the need for Points and Rewards to have point thresholds. The idea being that they don't want to allow the user to redeem their rewards until they hit a certain level. Ie, each product credits them 100 points. The redemption level is 1000 points. Thus, the individual would need to buy at least 10 items until they can redeem the reward which is valued at 1000 points.

                    • Hide products or variables from certain countries.

                      We have customers for different countries but due to laws and regulations we can't sell certain products to them I want a extension that will hide a certain product or variable from products from people who are accessing the website by IP or something so they never see those products.

                      • Google Product Feed (needs documentation)

                        I need a detailed guide, step-by-step, on how to actually connect the feed from the Google Product Feed (plugin) to Google Merchant. I would think that the developer would provide such necessary information. Only half of the puzzle is provided (how to install plugin on woocommerce, which is elementary). But what about the details on how to connect (and toubleshoot, if necessary) to Google Merchant, which is the entire purpose of the plugin.

                          If woo commerce can print orders directly when they are received with out any command that will be very helpful for any online business.

                          • 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…

                              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!

                              • Add calendar-based module scheduling in Sensei

                                Some courses are structured to meet on a recurring basis. In these situations, the availability of the next module should be calendar-based. Thinking about how to do this, I suppose one could hide the "I've completed this task" button, and have a cron job that updated Sensei with timing to coincide with the date of the next class. It would be nice if this could be done by just telling Sensei the dates of the classes.

                                  • 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.

                                    • "Cart Reports" Plugin - Extra functionality for Exporting to .CSV

                                      Hi there,

                                      Just wanted to know if you can write a simple script to export the "cart reports" information from the extension to .CSV ?

                                      The cart reports software is amazing.
                                      There are a large amount of people who hit out website and enter their email address on the Popup email grabber.
                                      After this, the cart reports software I believe actually adds that email address to their "cart" and we can see customers names before they purchase.

                                      If we could export all the carts data, their items in the cart, total cart price, dicounts applied?, with their logged email address. …

                                      • Transition tutorial: Show us how to recreate the look of Canvas portfolios with Projects by Woothemes

                                        Show your tech novice clients how to recreate the same features we have in Canvas portfolios:

                                        - "SELECT A CATEGORY" at the top of each portfolio type with a horizontal menu for its respective categories.

                                        and

                                        - Create multiple portfolios types for those with huge numbers of projects that require to group them by portfolio types, e.g.: www.hugotiles.com

                                        Thank you

                                        • Reset Filter for AJAX Layered Nav

                                          The AJAX Layered Nav is great, but I feel it is missing one bit of important functionality. The ability to Reset the filters. (ie. a show all button).
