    • Create image folders automaticly

      Wordpress have a function that create image folders automaticly from uploading (name of folders are combined by date).
      In Joomla, we must choose folder to upload. It is inconventable for one who upload many images a day.
      We can have a option for choosing creating automaticly or not.

            • Simple easy ways to add unique style to the featured article.

              Changing the appearance of the featured article seems to take knowledge of CSS and HTML formatting and a significant amount of back and forth between Joomla and the host's cPanel.

              A way to change the background color/image, font, font sizes, font colors, border and other style attributes would make it easier for people like me and more feasible for people who have knowledge of CSS and HTML.

              • Module <-> Menu allocation

                It would be helpful, if you could allocate a module to every menu-Item of a menu. If you a an new menu-item, this module should be shown automatically.

                • More Intuitive Menu System

                  The current menu system is powerful, but difficult. Make it easier to assign modules to particular pages!

                  Current System: user must set up menus, then point modules at menu items.

                  Proposed System: user simply assigns modules to specific articles.

                        • Clean/Clear Extention Install

                          Before an EXT install it would see if there are going to be errors (i.e., search db, folders, etc.) Then it tells you there may be errors and what to fix. Also, the option to wipe an old install complete, then install this vers.

                          I think a install tracker would be smart. If you need to do a total uninstall, it would take a snapshot file and replace your old stuff.

                          • Create multi-level category structure from simple xml file

                            When starting a new site in Joomla being able to create a category structure could be easier. At the moment you have to do this manually. For a large site this will take ages.

                            So I would like to be able to import a strucure from an xml file which is easy to build.

                            eg

                            <root>
                            <level1>description of level1 where TITLE for it is the tag name</level1>
                            <level1a>description
                            <level2>description</level2>
                            <level2a>description
                            <level3>description</level3>
                            <level3a>description</level3a>
                            </level2a>
                            <level1a>
                            </root>
                            </root>

                            • Possibility to show 'status:expired' articles only

                              At this point you can select 'published', 'unpublished', 'archived' and 'trashed' articles to be shown. It would be great to add an 'expired' option to the backend article manager.

                              • CDN autoconfig

                                Would be nice to have core integrated features for CDNs as it would probably enhance big sites webmasters and rise up potential speed of Joomla!

                                • mobile detect and responsive thumbnail generation

                                  It would be great to have in the core the php class from http://mobiledetect.net/. A lightweight PHP class for detecting mobile devices and tablets. Plus a way to generate thumbnails from images that correspond to the different sizes. Maybe starting with something like image-maker (https://github.com/drmmr763/Image-Maker).

                                  • Link Author to his profile.

                                    The Author name in article should link to his profile page and only the profiles that are set visible to public should be shown to public. By default, registered users should be able to view profiles of every author but there should also be parameters to restrict access to certain profiles.

                                    • in joomla should be a internet link to direct help for it in the admin panel

                                      We would be worryless by the term uses if we find a interanet supported device for the help of poor developer in easily

                                        Allow an age gate option for individual artice pages. The option to check a box when creating an article to state that that article requires a user to enter their age before it will fully open past the intro text

                                        • Managable HTML5 components or extensions.

                                          While HTML5 is evolving, I'd like to see components or extensions based on HTML5 replacing picture banners, flash or silverlight animations.
