    It’s either woo-commerce or Adii is selling the business to go and play golf and sit on a beach ๐Ÿ™‚

      I think you’ve got Adii mixed up with our resident golfer Magnus ๐Ÿ™‚

    WC = It has to be WooCommerce

    As ninja holding some money and shopping bag so it must be release of woocommerce ๐Ÿ™‚ hope it will be the big launch of the theme..

    • Adii Rockstar
      September 20, 2011 at 2:17 pm #

      Or we’re announcing the construction of a new WooThemes Mega Mall on our newly acquired, private island (right next to Sir Richard Branson’s).

        I thought that it was world domination and an introduction of WooCurrency, which of course for all of us loyal subscribers would be worth at least 10 times the amount in our hands than those of the mere mortal non-woothemers (I would call them muggles, but I might offend or possible cause some infringement or other .. but then again .. with World Conquering on it’s way .. does that apply anymore?)

    Yay! WC-is-coming…so excited, just started investigating in other shop solutions, I can only hope that awesome woo themes will release this for me soon ๐Ÿ™‚

    My guess: Come sept. 27th – you’ll make a blogpost about an upcoming WooCommerce release.

    Why would you go an promise a release, right after promising it mid-sept, after promising and promising. Just release it when ready insted of this b*******.

    Yes. I said it.

      Or or… it’s just the release. Chill man.

    I stumbled upon the official woocommerce plugin page yesterday in the SERPs. The plugin download link was just set to #.


    My guess is it’s ready for 1st release ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Adii Rockstar
      September 20, 2011 at 4:48 pm #

      Who looks at SERP’s anyway? Sheesh. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Well, when you are anxiously awaiting woocommerce you search for information about it in google by filtering past week ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Adii Rockstar
          September 20, 2011 at 10:27 pm #

          Fair enough.

    You already talked about in the comments of another blog post. Not sure which one… Have to check…. But it is for sure WooCommerce !! No doubt !! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    September 20, 2011 at 11:03 pm #

    YES!!! Fan boys FTW;) FB also pulls a meta-description indicative of WC.

    I just peed in my shopping bag. From across the room.

      If I wasn’t as excited as you are, I would’ve said “Gross!’ now. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Matt
        September 20, 2011 at 11:45 pm #

        If woocommerce can replace shopify for me then I will need a change of pants.

        Now you can say gross.

        • Adii Rockstar
          September 21, 2011 at 9:19 am #

          LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

          How would WooCommerce be able to replace Shopify for you?

          • Matt
            September 21, 2011 at 8:42 pm #

            Well, hopefully it will be as functional as Shopify with all the benefits of wordpress. Plus shopify’s out of the box SEO capabilities stink. I’m a fan of the WordPress SEO plugin.

            Will there be a way to bulk manage products? Shopify, for example, allows you to edit export, edit and import a .csv file.

    You have no idea the fumbling with clients I am doing to push back eCommerce site builds at the moment.
    It is an odd position to be in but the wait is almost over.
    In the meantime I need a few more excuses to add to my list apart from “I have a sore wrist at the moment”, “I have to take the cat to the vet”, or my old favourite ” What did you say?? Shopping-What? You need to call me back on a better line”

    • Josh

      – “It’s more strategic to launch an e-commerce site in October.”
      – “The shopping cart is already made, but it will take another 7 days for the DNS to propagate.”
      – “Each product takes about a day each to add into the cart.”
      – “If you want something good, it’s worth waiting for.”

    If I remember correctly, there will be a new theme released at the same time as WooCommerce, right?

    Also, any plans to get BraveNewCode’s Piggy working with WooCommerce?

    • allmyhoney
      September 22, 2011 at 9:43 am #

      Would be a nice touch to have BraveNewCode’s working with WooCommerce – id be giving this a +1 ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi – sorry didn’t know where else to post this but is there a rough date for the release of the news theme you mentioned a month or so ago?

    Just curious, is the ability to have users log in and sell through your site on the roadmap? I’m looking for a solution where people can log into a marketplace, sell their wares and we get a % of it.

    • Jay
      September 23, 2011 at 8:59 pm #

      Not at the moment.

      Not that I want to promote a competitor but I believe MarketPress is the only plugin which does this at present.

  32. jackharrybill
    September 24, 2011 at 10:18 am #

    No idea but my dream would be sliders etc that connect to pages not just posts. Can’t be that difficult and would reflect that WordPress is now a CMS not just a blogging tool!

    • Jesse
      September 25, 2011 at 5:46 pm #

      There is a plugin you can use that will allow you to do this, its called Page Links To and you can grab it at

      I have used it on several client sites where they wanted to have the ability to easily link their homepage slider ot other pages on the site (even outside of WordPress etc)

    Is it a Short Code for Example Code formatting in a Post (e.g. SQL, C#, HTML) ? As a Developer subscriber, this one addition would make me feel so good about renewing my membership for at least another year.

    • Jay
      September 24, 2011 at 9:26 pm #

      There are some great plugins out there which already do this ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Michael
        September 25, 2011 at 5:30 am #

        Fair enough. Does Woo have a recommendation for the most compatible plugin?

  34. Scott
    September 25, 2011 at 9:08 am #

    Definitely Woo Commerce. The image at the top of this blog entry is called wc-is-coming

    can someone do an in depth technical analysis of how woo-comerce compares to shopify? I’m in the midst of choosing between the two and want the perspective of others.
