Add option to display attributes and attribute values to archive & detail page

For example, Brand: Adidas.

Would be nice to have an option to choose some attributes that could be added below the price on the archive page.

These links would be standard hyperlinks with spans so that the end user can style them at will using CSS.

div -> span (attributename) -> a (attributevalue)

The hyperlink would actually filter the current view to show only ‘Adidas’, or if on product detail page it would go to /filter/adidas/

This could quite easily use the same format in the admin pages as the ‘canonical attributes’ section.

We could optionally allow users to choose where these additional attributes should be placed, although I think for v1, just below the price makes most sense:

 

It’s only the product archive page this needs to be added to, since the product detail pages cover this in whatever the theme does with ‘additional information’. Most put that in a tab, some put it above the price etc.

Obviously that could be: Flavour, Store, Brand, Colour, etc etc – would be nice for users to be able to filter to similar items right down at the product level.

Add OWL carousel compatibility

The OWL carousel is widely used and External Images should really be compatible with it.

In a test with fashxion I had it working with the ‘touch’ and ‘drag’ part but without the required thumbnails underneath.

Need to alter the thumb generation to be compatible with owl and to correctly produce the thumbs.

Should probably at the same time alter the existing carousel so that the thumbs are displayed properly in the thumb area – currently they’re technically displayed in the main featured image area.

Here’s a copy of the underlying HTML that OWL can use:

Cloudflare security bypass for Price Comparison Pro

A customer has found a site with ‘Im under attack’ mode enabled.

We should still be able to scrape these pages – except when a captcha is requested – although even then, it would be useful to be able to display the captcha to the admin and ask them to enter it to re-enable scraping from their server.

The example site here is:

https://www.size.co.uk/product/white-puma-x-ralph-sampson-low-og/140715/

The library to use to perform the bypass would be this:

https://github.com/Anorov/cloudflare-scrape

This service will have to be enabled through our own Phantom JS scraping service.

An additional check should be added to the start of any scraping session to check for cloudflare protection and then use the library.

The process is pretty much:

1. Check if cloudflare protection exists
2. Use the cloudflare-bypass library
3. Store the cookies for this target site for this source IP
4. When scraping after that, append the cookies to the cURL request (along with any other cookies specified by user in normal way) so that all requests bypass the protection page.
5. If cookies fail, re-run the cloudflare-bypass library to get a fresh set of cookies for this site + server IP

Add automatic configuration for top themes

Not all themes behave in the same way. Not all of them behave in the WordPress approved way.

This feature request is to ask our users which themes they use the most and would like to see automatic compatibility for.

So – please list your theme below and we’ll get automatic configuration coded up for it.

Add hook control for archive thumbnail and product/post detail page featured image

I’ve tried to make External Images work automatically on ALL the themes, but there is just so much variety in theme coding out there that it’s just not possible to make it fully automatic.

Some themes correctly use the wordpress functions to grab the thumb or featured image, and in these cases, it will work perfectly straight out the box.

Other themes grab images directly from the database. In these cases, we have to filter their output and replace it with ours. Different themes place these filters on a variety of different hooks.

Other themes even remove the default actions from the main featured image hooks or thumbnail hooks and move the hooks elsewhere.

In these final two cases, to guarantee compatibility with *every* theme, we need to provide:

  1. An action hook selector for where to place the featured image and a checkbox for whether we should remove other actions from this hook
  2. Same as above but for thumbnail hooks
  3. A filter hook selector to override thumbnail generator – we normally get this right, but this may occasionally be required

Remove pagination & sort options per post type/admin area

Add an option to remove pagination and sort options per post type to avoid problems in archives.

Users want to be able to benefit from this perf boost, but restrict it to problematic areas, and keep sorting and pagination elsewhere.

Check if HTTPS is possible for images, if so, replace HTTP with HTTPS for all of that site’s images

We already proxy images if they are not HTTP, but:

1) This uses CPU and bandwidth (but no disk space)
2) Some networks, like ASOS, prevent downloading images in this way
3) Some networks, like ASOS, are listed as HTTP images in datafeedr but actually do have HTTPS images

So I’m going to add a new feature that when it spots an HTTP image for the first time from a new domain, it will test if HTTPS works, and if so, all future HTTP image requests will be changed to HTTPS image request rather than attempting to proxy them.

Make FWW work with Woo Brands plugin

The Woo Brands plugin is popular because of the brand landing pages it provides. BUT, it handles brands in a weird way. Regardless, customers want compatibility, so I’ll implement it.

https://www.wpintense.com/question/woocommerce-brand-woocommerce-ajax-layer-navigation/

Should hopefully be able to just make it compatible, but *may* have to create a new widget to replace their widget. I already know the way they’ve coded it is very slow, so probably it’ll need a new replacement widget.

Add auto-generated H1 tags for cats & filters

add dynamically created titles and h1s for brand filter the same way like Eric Busch from datafeedr did it on geargrabber.net?

View the code on Gist:

https://gist.github.com/EricBusch/b30e411a2442ab94a37c97235fecd80e.js?file=geargrabber-php-L134

e.g. https://www.geargrabber.net/category/mens-clothing/?filter_brand=carhartt

Another great option would be adding brand seo description on the main shop page when you click brand filter: shop/brand/paul-smith

Zalando does it this way.
