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".
(thinking…)

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.

  • Hot ideas
  • Top ideas
  • New ideas
  1. Version filtering

    When searching the Extensions Directory, I hope that I could filter the search when looking for extensions for 1.6 version only or 1.5 version only or whether the extension supports all version.

    • Plugin to check extension vulnerability list

      A plugin to check your installed components, modules and plugins against an updated vulnerability list to inform you if you have any insecure extensions running.

      This would be a valuable plugin indeed!

      • Demo In Search Results

        The less clicks the better. It would be great to include the programmers demo link if available in the search result itself. It is so time-consuming to click on the program and then demo if available then try to find the demo within the programmer's site. It would be better to Search > Demo > Choose To Install or Not.

        • automatic pruning of extensions on the JED

          currently extensions are left on the JED without any checks to see if the project is still alive or supported. This leads to lots of extensions doing the same thing that are not supported and clutter up the JED while also potentially leaving unsecure extensions being implemented on joomla sites.

          I propose that all developers of extensions, and per extension, have an email sent to them every 3 months to validate that the project is still alive. This can be accomplished by them clicking an enclosed link like email validation. This information of last validation can be included on the…

              • Better Security for custom extensions with a "Quality" attribute

                Many extensions are created by duplicating an existing one. As one result they will never get updated with its original. I'm not shure about the best way, but i want more security ;-). The only independant way, i'm aware of is to check the code automatically and handle a "quality" attribute. Maybe there is a chance by adding unit tests to any extension

                  • Directory of templates for Joomla! organized by versions and technologies used

                    There are many templates on the internet for joomla! but it is a tedious job search page by page all options. The idea would be to centralize all these templates in a single directory on joomla.org website

                                A simple module that allows people to subscribe with email only for notification of new articles on the site. When a new module is created the options for set up can include, create user group (for subscribers) and when published a check box can be added to article editor, to notify the user group. It would also need to include in the module options, Module Class Suffix and email options to allow admin to set up a verification email on subscription.

                                So the end user at the front end will have only a two click subscription with no form to…

                                • Component for Integration/Web Curation via Bundlr, Storify, or native tool

                                  Bundlr is an excellent tool for curation of data/images from around the 'net. Example: I manage a site for photography enthusiasts, and Bundler is great way to capture in one location video tutorials, how-to articles, etc.) from a variety of sources into a single "page". This "bundle" should be capable of simple and smooth integration into my main Joomla-based website.

                                  Whether Bundlr, Storify, or some native Joomla content-aggregation component, many websites for professionals or for hobby enthusiasts could benefit from a curation tool

                                    • Official and picked extensions for current versions

                                      Joomla has very secure and up-to-date core, But extensions on JED isn't official and reviewed by joomla security team, and sometimes updates of new J! comes very lately, and some necessary addons isn't FREE. Therefore integration between core and extensions is necessary. It means official and picked FREE extensions for every current version of Joomla. It is Joomla ultimate !
