The interfaces changes in WordPress have reduced the functionality of this plugin. A update would be very handy.
The issue: currently when using External Images, the lightbox that is normally available for product images, is gone. When you click an image, it simply loads in the little slider. When you click a large image, nothing happens. My customers need to be able to load the images in the lightbox, so they can inspect the details of any garments up close. Please bring back the lightbox link, so that when the larger image is clicked on, it opens in the lightbox that it setup/used for the theme currently active. In case it helps, I use the FooBox plugin for my lightbox.
The issue: currently all external images load as full-sized images, even if they’re only displayed as thumbnails on the site. This is extremely detrimental to page sizes and page loading times, and goes against what the External Images plugin is trying to achieve. I do not need 2,000 pixel images to load in 300×300 pixel spaces, for example in the product image galleries.
Solution: Use Jetpack’s free Photon CDN via their API to automatically display images at thumbnail sizes when required. Use the Photon API (https://developer.wordpress.com/docs/photon/api/) to check if it’s installed and enabled, and if it is, rewrite the URLs to run through Photon so they will return an optimized thumbnail sized image instead where needed. You could make this an option in the admin panel, and greatly improve loading times on the Product Page and all Archive pages a product may appear on.
Users love to use tag product (categories+brand, categories+brand+color) for quick access to all products with such characteristics. But tag woocommerce very long boot. Is it possible to do shortcode with FWW?
Something like this [product_cat pa_brend] this shortcode displays the terms related to a product on the product page, the customer can click a term and all products with the same characteristics will be displayed.
If the shop numeric pagination there are problems when applying the filter. For example: if a user watched T-shirts (without a filter), he looked through 15 pages, on page 15 decided to choose a filter (for example Nike), if t-shirts are less than 15 pages an error occurs 404. It would be better if There was a return to the first page in the filter selection.
In some cases – digital subscriptions, for example – products have different levels of pricing, but only one source (ie. you can only sign up directly from the vendor of that software, so there’s no price comparison between different stores, but between different tiers). It’d be useful to be able to display these as comparisons – and to be able to pull in other additional data – as well as a single price for a single product.
Please allow for your plugin to work with FacetWP.
In order to get as many pages of our store as possible available in the search result, we should be able to generate a number of pages with clean URL.
The plugin should automatically create a list of all possible combinations of the URLs with checkboxes near each, so we can easily exclude some of them (and option to select all) and then add the selected ones to the Sitemap, which is generated by the Yoast SEO plugin.
What should be respected:
1. Permalink ordering settings.
2. Multiple selection option (don’t add URLs with multiple selections within one attribute).
3. Don’t add non-indexable URLs to the Sitemap as this forces search engines to crawl and process these URLs. This is an unnecessary usage of crawl budget and should be avoided.
Maybe it should be connected with: https://www.wpintense.com/suggestions/seo-text-based-on-filters/, so we can add the description (seo text) below the generated URL?
FWW widget output urls should remember a search query. Currently if you search for something and then try to filter the results with the widgets they remove a search query from the url.
e.g. you are searching for a bowl:
and then filter by color:
but it should be:
Maybe it would be good if a search query appears in Existing Filters widget, so users can remove it and easily return to the archive pages – it would be great for UX reasons! Or even get popular search queries indexed by google? Let me know what you think.
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.
