    • Tutorial videos on using woocommerce and for each of your extensions

      In general, there should be short videos explaining woocommerce like you have for your themes, WP installation, etc. And each extension needs and video or videos explaining and walking us through its use. Even for the mailchimp newsletter, for example. I signed up with Mailchimp because of your extension and would have liked the ability (or directions) to tweak the woo customer checkout page so that it matched the optional fields I set up in Mailchimp, for example, a field asking how the customer found us. And...I don't understand what Gravity forms are or how/why I would need that extension.…

      • Catalog Visibility options documentation needs serious updating

        Since I can't seem to post on the forum, find an email, I just drop it here ...

        The documentation on woothemes needs serious updating. For a first time user, this plugin needs to much "manual" work to make it work as promised. If you don't know this, you get very disappointed.

        Some examples:

        - The plugin says it "disables all add-to-cart functionality", but the actual cart and checkout button still remain visible. Should not say "all" then, because you still need to add an action to your functions.php to hide the actual cart.

        - If AJAX is enabled for…

          • Option to translate the contact form template

            The contact form template stays in English even if we have Wordpress installation in another language. Translating it is a pain.

            Please add an option to manually insert the required fields: "name" "solve" "submit" "name" etc so other languages can benefit from the contact form template please.

              • More detailed paypal instructions on web site

                I'd like to see more detailed paypal instructions on the wootheme web side. Possible some example images. I've been trying to make heads or tails of paypal standard ipn instructions for a week now.

                • Have you considered a priority paid support queue?

                  I know this sounds bizarre, but you have site tinkerers, then you have sites that are super reliant on woo. Those like mine that need woo functions to work and will happily pay for immediate support. Have you considered a paid support queue, or extra level of support for the users who have critical needs for your product?

                  • Woocommerce Hooks lexics

                    Hi,
                    I haven t see in development a good list of hook possible in woocommerce. The only way I see is to go on code codex, not really nice to see directly the hooks possible.

                    In same way, all shortcode including all plugins of woo in same page.

                    • Make a FirePHP WooTorial!

                      Hello WooTeam!

                      Your tutorial on Firebug is excellent, do you know about "FirePHP"?

                      I was thinking that it would be awesome if you could make tutorial on the whole process of installing it, setting it up and using it!

                      • Fix WooCodex main page

                        When you hover on how many people did not find this useful, there is a wrong number. For example on Shortcodes there are 3 "did not find this useful", but when you hover over it, it says 59. Have a nice day.
