Joomla Idea Pool

Welcome to the Joomla Idea Pool. Please add your suggestions here for future versions of Joomla and vote on current suggestions.

What features would you like to see in future versions of Joomla?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

          • Google Webmaster Tools Compatiility

            The core components and modules in Joomla should be more compatible with Google Webmaster Tools. For example, the core menu module should bee compatible with google's menu indexing capability, and sitemaps should be auto generated.

                • Improved Search functionality

                  Create an extended functionality in the search function, so when you click on a search result, the text is scrolled down to the searched term, and the search term is put in bold letters.
                  This is usefull for longer text.

                  • Option search: Whole word search

                    At current time, searching for "table", in results, you will have, also, "suitable" etc. If you have a large amount of articles, especially for latin based languages, this is real panic...

                    • Smart Search should have an option to log search queries for the purpose of SEO & business intelligence

                      Capturing the queries which are searched for on your website can be a valuable resource for business intelligence, and may inform your SEO strategy. Currently SmartSearch has no logging facilities (only the option to log during the index process).

                      This used to be known as 'gathering statistics' but in SmartSearch this simply tells you how many items have been indexed.

                      This feature would need to be selectively enabled and perhaps have some kind of log rotation to ensure the database doesn't get clogged up, but ultimately it would be a really useful resource for enterprises using Joomla!.

                      • Hint Selected Articles frt

                        there should be an option in the Search module in which we could select whether which articles should be displayed in search result and which should be not!

                            • Advanced article search and extra fields for articles

                              There should be the ability to add custom extra fields to articles and then to make a heavily filtered search based on those extra fields, similar to what k2 search extensions offer.

                              A custom and heavily filtered search is very important today for nearly any site and joomla should have it out of the box.

                                • search with and without diacritics simultaneously

                                  The ability to search with and without diacritics like Google. For example: in Joomla aimés and aimes is two different words but in real is same word but without diacritics. If my user don use diactritics in search site dont find the article.
                                  I think is not simple to do this but is one must for me.

                                  • joomla search returns the exact result in article with multipage

                                    for now joomla search does not return the exact result in multipage items. the link would only take you to the first page .

                                          Smart Search filter should/must allow to select empty categories and its child.
                                          At themoment It's possible to select only categories that are already indicized and have already at least an article, but if articles are inserted by many users, it's "impossible" to update the filter every time a category is filled.
                                          It is bettere that a user can choose a category independently if it has an article or not, bettere if selecting a category, all child categories are automatically selected
