Last week saw the launch ofÂ WooDojo, a “functionality suite” for enhancing any WordPress-powered website with the WooThemes features you need. Now 7 days into the future, we thought we’d recap on the last week having WooDojo available to the world.
The response from the WooCommunity, and WordPress user community at large, has been really positive, with WooDojo having been received well all-round. With over 7000 downloads in it’s first 24 hours, and over 12,000 downloads in it’s first week, WooDojo is steadily making a name for itself. We released WooDojo version 1.0.1 shortly after launch to iron out the one or two bugs that were reported to us in the WooDojo support forum. Aside from the feedback and one or two bug reports, we’ve had one or two queries for documentation on how to use and tailor WooDojo to suit your needs.
Low and behold, today sees the release of the WooDojo documentation.
The WooDojo documentation includes a detailed user guide which includes instructions for installing, upgrading and getting started with your first steps in using WooDojo. We’ve also included detailed information on each of the bundled features within WooDojo and a few tips on resolving common issues when getting off the ground. This documentation will be updated periodically as new features are developed, as well as include tutorials and snippets for enhancing WooDojo’s features in ways that may not be clear at the outset.
More features on the way
We’ve got loads of great features in our development queue, which we’re chomping at the bit to release. Keep an eye out for previews of more WooDojo features, coming soon.
Sensei’s tip of the week
On the path to ninja enlightenment, the tips and tricks one learns along the road are of utmost importance. Today, we’d like to share but one of these tips with you all.
There is an idiom that reads; “one hand washes the other”. This translates as, “working together helps us all”. We’ve taken this idiom to heart when developing features for WooDojo, wherever possible, in that one feature can compliment and enhance another. An example of this would be styling the WooDojo – Tabs widget using the WooDojo – Custom Code feature. To do so, you’d begin by using the “.widget_woodojo_tabs” CSS selector and adding your custom CSS code to that selector.
This is an example of how one feature in WooDojo can be used to customise and enhance another.
The WooDojo page has a full list (with detailed screenshots) of all features bundled with WooDojo.
Your ideas, your feedback
As with all WooThemes projects, listening to our community is on top of our priorities list. WooDojo is no different. We’d really like to hear your feature ideas and feedback via our WooDojo forum on WooIdeas. The questions we have in mind with features are, “Wouldn’t it be great if I could do ____________ in WordPress?” and “Wouldn’t it be great if WordPress could do __________ ?”. Please keep these in mind when posting in WooIdeas… we’d love to hear your thoughts!Share your ideas
We’re looking forward to seeing how you use WooDojo on your websites.
