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".

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

            • Articles should have a page title tag setting in its options and be set in the article not the menu

              One of the major missing feature is the ability to set a title tag for a joomla article. You can set it by using a menu item but this can bit a nightmare to manage.

              For an article, what should happen is you set all SEO data including the page title tag, robots info and all other required data for SEO meta kyewords (using mainly internally now), meta description and ability to add custom meta information. If the information is not filled in the default info can be used like now (globally setting here would be useful ie use article…

                • Be able to control title tag, meta desc, on each article... and also on each menu...

                  Basically, eliminate the need for bloated SEO components to just handle title tag, meta desc, etc... should be able to set that on each article page, and each menu, then also build something in to handle 301 redirects... the fewer components the better.

                                      • Front-End & Back-end central control of SEO

                                        Joomla SHOULD have it’s own SEO control component (See SEO BOSS)

                                        Also, in fronted, when on mode edition, you should be able to control the SEO of a Page (as Wordress do)
