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".

            • User Profile image/avatar

              Allow site users to upload an image file to be associated with their profile. The image could then be displayed along with any site posts and/or comments.

              This is a sorely missing feature for Joomla which I hope to see added in a near term release (version 1.7 or 1.8).

              • Manage and creation of user profile fields

                Option to easily add new user fields to user profile and manage user profile fields, something similar to the following image http://www.protechsystems.us/stuff/joomla/userfields_management.png

                I will sponsor this feature up to $500, only if approved to be added to the core.

                        • Rapid Development Tool For Joomla

                          We need a rapid development tool for joomla like in cakephp and zend frameworks do. Joomla has a good framework. A joomla rapid development tool will make developers to develop their controllers, model and views. This will change joomla from cms to a great web development framework.

                                        • Don't save FTP password

                                          When you need to use FTP, show a window to enter the password, and save in the session (temporarily).
