More theme & product developments

Written by Mark Forrester on September 13, 2012 Product News.

We’ve just added two new exciting projects to the upcoming products page, that we strongly recommend you keep an eye on, that the team are very excited about.

The One Pager

One Pager is a simple, yet hugely flexible theme that we’ve had designed by the talented South African designer Gary Murray. As the name suggests it includes all the content you wish to showcase on your website on one scrollable, completely widgetized homepage, with tight integration with WooDojo.

    Hi the one pager is something we all agree is missing 🙂

    1. What happened to the Superstore ?
    2. and when will mighty menus be coming, that has been in there for a while now!

    Status on both please.

      Glad you behind the One Pager theme concept.

      Regarding Superstore we’ve received minimal interest in this theme concept, for that reason the theme is on ice for now, as we continue to design and build more generic WooCommerce themes. We still hope to implement some of it’s proposed features in other WC themes though.

      Mighty menus is in development and we have the base code written. We have paused development for the month though as we concentrate our capacity on a large internal project we’ll be notifying users of soon. We’ll be looking at UX soon and flesh out a realistic release date.

        If you’d be willing to release some of the proposed Superstore features as extensions — namely the ability to view product details from catalog archives, infinite scroll, and a persistent cart — I think they’d sell very well. If there aren’t concrete plans to release those features, please let me know so I can work on implementing them myself.

        For anyone interested in infinite scrolling, this plugin seems to work fine with with WooCommerce and Canvas:

        Minimal interest in superstore? The only reason I stayed a subscriber was to get access to the Superstore and LMS.

        That’s a huge letdown for me.

          Sorry to hear Shawn, we never mean to let you down! Like mentioned, we will be looking at releasing features of the theme as extensions perhaps. 🙂

            I hope so. Looked like a great foundation to build a woocommerce site on.

          +1 to Shawn. I’ve been waiting on superstore for a while now. Would’ve been nice to hear that it wasn’t being actively developed any more, especially since I signed up to get “updates” on the theme. That seems like a pretty pertinent update, don’t ya think?

          • Ryan Ray
            September 14, 2012 at 4:36 am #

            Very true, perhaps we should send some updates that way. 🙂

          I agree, the current theme are great for small enterprises, but Woo Commerce needs to show it is growing up and is serious about e-commerce (which I have no doubt they are) and we have a number of clients with hundreds of products that would love this kind of theme, but for now and the near future they will have to stick with Magento (which I friggin despise)

          🙂 Peter

        I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Super Store since it was first mentioned.

      • Dan B
        September 13, 2012 at 10:55 pm #

        I agree with Zach – it would be great to see the Superstore functionality as plugins that we can add to any woocommerce site.

        Tying them into one theme doesn’t work for me.

        Details flip, category navigation, infinite scroll … and most definitely advanced search that works well for a large product range.

        Is your implementation of Might Menus an acquisition of Miniraffe? I think I remember hearing something about this back in the day.

      • Peter
        September 19, 2012 at 9:00 pm #

        Looking forward to Mighty Menus! We have a mega menu planned in our University site redesign. We repeatedly turn to woothemes for themes and plugins, you guys are rocking it out with your feature set, keep up the good work.

    I would be really happy to see an up-to-date (responsive & a kind of minimal design) personal blog theme in your portfolio! What about a post types update with a slight strip down option designwise for the Merchant theme?! Maybe you know the personal blog by one of these Woo guys?! 😉 No, really – I think this would be a minimal effort with maximum benefit. AndI guess there is still a lot of demand for personal blog themes? What are your numbers saying?

    How’s the take up of LMS? This is the one I really want out of all of the upcoming products.


    • Mark Forrester
      September 13, 2012 at 4:49 pm #

      LMS is sceduled for development within the next month and is a project we are very excited about. No exact ETA yet.

      • Chris
        September 13, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

        Hi Mark,

        Thanks for the update. Already planning a site for it now!


      • Wes

        Just putting another plug in for the LMS. Could be a huge benefit to people selling training courses, and possibly a player in schools. Very interested in this one.

      • Peter Ricci
        September 14, 2012 at 3:15 pm #

        LMS will be a huge success. I already have 20+ clients champing at the bit for this!

    One pager looks good!! Is there an update on the ETA for WooBookings??

    • Chris
      September 13, 2012 at 4:25 pm #


      What is WooBookings? Not heard anything about this.

      • Mark Forrester
        September 13, 2012 at 6:29 pm #

        Expect it on the upcoming products page soon 🙂

        • Stefan
          November 7, 2012 at 5:31 pm #

          Will WooBookings be a plugin or a theme?

    • Mark Forrester
      September 13, 2012 at 6:28 pm #

      WooBookings will be scheduled for development in the next month. Design has been finalised this week.

      • Ryan Ray
        September 13, 2012 at 6:38 pm #

        It’s a really beautiful theme as well, I’ve had a peek at it! 😛

        • Rickard
          September 13, 2012 at 11:38 pm #

          Theme? Tought it was a plugin. Had plans for using it together with other themes/plugins. Have this far never found any use for a apptheme. I want the functionality but it is not always the prime and only functionality needed.

          I do not want to set up my lms on one wp instance the bookings on an other and the shop on a third, the support on a fourth. Why? Our clients cant handle the complexity of it and the cost of maintenance is to high.

          Maby there is a good way to do it that I do not know of? For instance I would buy supportpress today if it was a plugin but as a theme I find no use for it.

            September 14, 2012 at 10:44 am #

            Totally agree, most of this ‘apps’ themes should be plugins. I’d love to use LMS but on an existing theme.

    Good to see more great themes coming… but when do you think you will finish up the Woocommerce child theme for Scrollider?

    We purchased this theme for a time sensitive project last week only to find out that the child theme is listed but not complete (or available!).

    Help out some loyal Woo fans!

    Any chance this One Pager theme will be able to integrate with Woocommerce for a single item store? I’m dying to find something that will let me build product landing pages with a buy now button. This sounds like it’s coming close.

    • Tom Harrigan
      September 14, 2012 at 3:32 am #

      That’s a really neat idea, I like it. Think it would be applicable to many startups, I’d prefer to see sites using something like what you propose rather than yet another Twitter Bootstrap site.

    • Mark Forrester
      September 14, 2012 at 9:11 am #

      We definitely hope to integrate with WooCommerce to make this theme truly flexible.

    • Adii Pienaar
      September 18, 2012 at 10:54 am #

      Superstore unfortunately didn’t get enough traction and we’ve decided not to pursue the idea. We will however be developing some of the niche functionality we had planned for Superstore as part of our other products.

      • Dan B
        September 18, 2012 at 12:19 pm #

        Please make the Superstore functionality as *plugins*, that way we can apply to any woocommerce theme 🙂

    Hi Guys

    Great to see my design on the WooThemes site!

    Glad to see that the response to the one-pager concept has been positive so far. Hoping this themes does really well – I know I wished for this kind of themes for ages.

    All the best

    Wow, a 1-page theme would be AMAZEBALLS. I made a Delegate mod in to a 1-pager ( a while back; what a punishment!

    Would have loved to have a 1-page theme to start with!

    Couldn’t tell from the pic of the bookstore so asking here (already posted idea)

    Are we finally going to be able to search via more than one taxonomy group/term?

    Show me all ‘bestsellers’ in the genre ‘sci-fi’ from the years ‘2000-2012’?

    Add in a little jquery live auto sorting, and there ya go…

    I’m just so plain tired of only being able to narrow my search down to a single sort, especially since this functionality was promised in another theme here almost 2 years ago now… yeah I’m still waiting on that one….
