Not planning to implement

  • [11.06.17] Add more control over wp_coupons_expire event time + occurrence. Reason: Multiple options already available and limited by WP Cron.
  • [05.14.20] Coupon code # of uses, then expire. Reason: No way to track this and we aren’t looking to provide this type of functionality.

  • [02.27.18] Integration with WC Vendors and WC Frontend Manager. Reason: At this point, we aren’t planning to commit the development time required for this feature.
  • [02.04.18] Multisite support. Reason: This isn’t how customers have been the plugin.
  • [01.15.18] Visual (Drag n Drop) Editor for creating coupon designs. Reason: At this point, we aren’t planning to commit the development time required for this feature.
  • [07.07.17] Load wp-coupons.css only when needed on the page. Reason: We would have to inline the CSS, and there is too much code.
  • [05.29.17] Ability for users to submit coupons (go to waiting for approval status by admin). Reason: This creates additional problems such as spam filtering, security, etc.
  • [01.23.17] Make searchable (location + map, Tweet). Reason: It doesn’t fall in line with the core focus of our pluguin.
