Shopping Cart & Wishlist image buttons...

I really like the shopping cart image button visible on 980.css & smaller layouts. Can this be applied, along with a similar wishlist image button, in all views? I would prefer they be side-by-side so that the text button for the wishlist can be removed from the top of the product details area - which will bring things together better and remove clutter. Thanks for considering this!

Hi Matt,

Thank you for your suggestion. It is really a good idea. The only issue I see is that on catalog pages(category, manufacturer) there is no wishlist button present, so we will need to add it as well. It is not a matter of styling it similar to the add to cart button. The design will have to change, because the price is shown near the add to cart button, so adding a wishlist button instead will change the design.

We will consider implementing this functionality for adding a wishlist button on catalog pages.

Thank you for your suggestion!

in Mega-Menu, can you make topic blocks configurable so we can determine which menu links become a drop-down block or not - without having to change the .css every time there is an upgrade/update?

also, can you make "text-transformation: uppercase" configurable from the admin page or guide me to where I remove it because changing it in MegaMenu.css for Alicante theme doesn't seem to remove the uppercase transformation on the topic block for me. Thanks!

Hi Matt,

There is a setting that can enable or disable the click for dropdowns for all elements. There is no functionality to specify different settings for each element. If you think this will add value to the plugin, you can propose it in our user voice portal.

You can add custom css from the administration that will override the theme css. So for the uppercase of the header menu, you can add the following in the administration -> plugins -> nop alicante theme in the Custom Head Styles property:

.header-menu > ul > li
{
    text-transform: none;
}

Hope that helps!

thanks for helping with my previous requests/issues!

Here's a new request: COLOR NAME DISPLAY w/COLOR SQUARES

When a customer selects a color square, they can only see what the name is if they hover it in full desktop mode. Since a majority of my customers use mobile devices, and some of them may be partially or fully color blind, I've had orders placed where the customer thought it was going to be a different color based on their perception of the color square alone.

Yes, they should have seen the color name in the order summary but even when my customers realize a mistake in the shopping cart, it's a hassle for them to go back and correct it. I'm still using Nop 3.1 because I've had zero luck upgrading to 3.2 (separate issue) and there is no quick link to edit a cart item.

That said, my goal for my entire shopping cart system has been to make the customer experience fool proof, fluent and as confusion free as possible. This prevents dropped carts, high bounce rates, customer contact requests, etc. The COLOR SQUARE w/ NAME feature can bring me one step closer.

Thanks for considering it. (btw, the user voice portal doesn't work well for me because I never seem to have enough points to do anything significant with. just though I'd mention!)

this feature request isn't theme specific, maybe more of a plugin feature request?...

EXTENDED PRODUCT ATTRIBUTES ... there is at least one work item on codeplex for the Nop team to add conditional attribute functionality, however, this seems to get passed up on each new release and I do not see it happening for 3.3.

That said, can this be done at a plugin level where we can pull from an existing product and manipulate it's attribute fields via a Plugin's Admin interface? Ideally, I envision a scenario where I can manage multiple product "configurations" and each new configuration can either be applied to a single product, a select group of products or globally (much like quick tabs and other plugins).

To really make this feature desirable, it would also be the perfect platform for us to create pre-set attribute combinations (SIZE: S, M, L, XL, etc; COLOR SQUARES: red, blue, green, etc) that we build once and apply swiftly to any product we manage through this plugin's admin panel.

Thanks again for listening and I'm eager to help on this one if you feel it's something we all can benefit from! (and I know we all can)

I'm keeping you guys busy! (LOL) ... here's one last feature request for the day!

"CALL TO ACTION PROMOTIONS" - I often see more discussion about my products on my business facebook page or twitter than I do at the actual product (on my site) level. Case being, I can have 1,000 likes of a facebook post I made about a product, but the actual LIKE count on my product page is barely 20. I've considered adding comment boxes (in a quick tab) for each of my products to get people interacting through my website, but that is a lot of work as I have to change the reference URL for each comment box to apply directly to the product it's attached to. I'd rather input my APP ID one time and have a plugin automatically create the comment box for each product I apply it to. When a customer uses this or another share feature, it would be nice to have an "event" created in the system so that a discount or reward point function can be called.

That's just one aspect of what can be done with this plugin. My vision for this plugin also includes the following...

1) extended reward points integration based on registered user "events" and time-frames for which they occurred. (eg. a customer shares or comments on a product. each share or comment earns them "X" amount of reward points. only "X" amount can be earned in a 1 week period (for example).

2) same as above, but instead of (or in addition to) reward points, I can assign a time-sensitive discount that is presented in a modal popup window to encourage customers to purchase the item they shared or commented on within a certain amount of time - or the discount is removed.

3) similar to how www.vistaprint.com works, at the checkout level - we can encourage cross-sells and order completion by offering time-sensitive discounts on cross-sell items if added to their current purchase before we complete their transaction. for this to fully work, it has to occur after an initial "authorization" has successfully completed for their payment method, and before the final amount has been charged to that payment method.

Part of this will likely rely on reworking some core NOP code (to create additional events, allow checkout-level call to action scripts, etc.) but your development team knows the limitations and requirements if you decide this is something you can offer.

Thanks again! - Matt

Hi Matt,

Thank you for your suggestions. We will have a detailed look at your suggestions. As to the first two, they are more specific and not sure if it is appropriate for a plugin, while the third one is a good and we have already started some work toward this idea.

Thanks again!
