Great plugin – some suggestions for improvement
Great plugin you wrote, but IMHO not yet excellent ;). I encountered several issues that could use some improvement:
- – the header/footer fix for the margins of the product detail pages works, but I think it’s not the most obvious solution
- – With current layout the page is being filled with the images first, you have to scroll down to see the product details. I would like to have some more layout options for the product detail page: thumbs placed horizontally under the large image and product details ‘float right’ next to the large image.
- – can the large image in product detail be linked to the original image (e.g. 1024px)? This way it can be viewed in higher resolution, also in a lightbox (with a plugin installed).
- – Can the fixed title ‘Product Details’ be replaced by a title field, so it will display the product title? Actually this is about two points: missing the option to display the product title and wanting to adjust the fixed title (e.g. into Dutch)
- – On the product page it would be nice to have some extra fields for each product, to display some product features next to / under the gallery image, e.g. the dimensions of the product
- – Maybey the plugin ‘Inventory Manager‘ has some usefull options you can integrate…
– On the product page I currently miss the option to make the selected number of products at a row fill the content wrapper entirely; in fact, it does so, but with a different right-margin at the page, because of the set right margin to the product. CSS won’t help much, in this case there’s no “first” or “last” to set a different margin for…
– last but not least: the gallery is not yet responsive! It would be great if the whole plugin could be based on a 12-column fluid grid like in the theme ‘Responsive’. That would save everybody a lot of time making these css adaptations on your own.
For the second point in the above list I modified the ‘single-wcpproduct.php’ slightly to make it fit for a website I’m currently building, so just let me know if you’re interested ;).
With these points improved I’ll definitely give a 5-star rating!
