I’m just poking around and seeing how active and helpful this community is. I haven’t purchased Cwicly yet, and the main reason is Gutenberg and WooCommerce. Gutenberg for not being a good fit for my needs, and WooCommerce for being too convoluted. So I understand completely well why youre delaying the release. Working with WC is very hard!
That being said, I loved the preview on the filters implementation. Finally someone that understands UI/UX!
I have a few suggestions to make, and if you can make them work, I’ll drop every tool I’m using right now and will convert all my stores to Cwicly!
So here’s the list, coming directly from the most requested features my clients ask:
1 - [Deal Breaker] Faceted Filter: Support for Variations
(see: Brace yourselves: new product filtering by attributes is coming – Develop with WooCommerce);
2 - Variation Swatches;
3 - Ajax Search;
4 - Off-canvas Mini Cart with auto-trigger on add-to-cart;
5 - Product/Term carousel (query builder: related, recently viewed, upsells, etc.);
6 - Infinite Scroll/Load More Pagination (bonus points for individual “order-by” and “count” blocks, so we can place them wherever we want);
7 - Quantity +/- buttons;
8 - Custom names for cart and add-to-cart everywhere;
9 - Vertical/horizontal/none gallery thumbs (with responsive show/hide);
10 - Ajax enabled notification messages (info, success, warnings, etc);
I’m not sure if this exists, but I need to be able to sticky a lot of stuff.
My personal request:
11 - Sort/Order-by: make it touch friendly. Customers often have difficulty on using the select input, especially if it’s something like select2 on mobile. It’s not a good experience. A drop-over/modal with radio options that we can style (for example, with custom CSS and icons) would be awesome!
If you can deliver the first half, I’m sold! I’ll learn to accept Gutenberg and look past its shortcomings. =)
Thanks for opening this space for feedback, and most importantly for listening!
