  1. Catch login attempts, log and ban IP (something like fail2ban)

    I'm administrating few Joomla sites. Recently we have large amount of bot trying to guess passwords. My idea is simple:
    - Log false login attempt IP (database and/or "logs/error.php" file)
    - Ban for x minutes those IPs which had y attempts in current hour (x, y might be configurable)

    In my opinion, this would save many, many sites from hacks!

    • Content Versioning for Modules

      I'd like to extend the idea of Version History for Joomla Articles to be expanded to Modules. Specifically "Custom HTML" or mods that have HTML in them. Thanks.

      • Browser popup to avoid accidental tab closure while editing front/backend

        Having an option that would prevent accidental tab closing (or redirection) when editing on frontend / backend.

        A popup that would display a message preventing accidental tab closure would be awesome.

            • Incremental search for an configuration option

              search fiel in the backend to find a specific option quickly -- more quickly than clicking through various menus

                  • Complete compatibilty with CloudFlare CDN Network

                    I'd like to see the Joomla! project liaise with CloudFlare to ensure that Joomla! and CloudFlare are completely compatible.

                    At present, there are issues in both the Joomla! v2.5.x and v3.3.x series where when an account is on CloudFlare, certain Admin buttons (like [Save], [Save & Close] etc.) in some core components just don't work :-(

                    • 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>

                      • kindly include a video component in the next release of Joomla version.

                        There should be a video component in the core of Joomla which can be used to managed videos.

                        • I would like to see JED sortable by star rankings

                          A very good extension I use, one that is well-maintained, constantly updated, and nicely documented, is still dropping in its listing position... because it isn't 'newer' than the others. This particular developer is being punished by constantly improving his product when he might be better off abandoning it and creating a 'new' one. So my proposal is: extensions sortable by star-rating, number of downloads, date posted, date updated.

                          • Ordering Menu Items

                            Possibility to have choice to ordering automaticly Menu Items in alphabetic order (ascending or descending) but for the frontend.

                            We can do it in backend. But it will be very good to be abble to decide (in backend of course) to decide how they are order in the front.

                            Don't have to drag and drop every time.

                            Don't have to determine "manually" if Amdlfkjmlkjsfq must be before or after Amqlsdkjfqmlj.
                            If I have decide to order them in alphabetic order, I don't need to read and drag and drop : they are automaticly in my alphabetic order (in backend and…

                              • Archive table rather than InnoDB for session table

                                I've read the following: "In MySQL 5 there is a new table type called the 'archive table' type was introduced to deal with common requirements for web applications like access logs where only INSERTS and SELECTS were done. Basically if tables such as a Access Log table are determined to not have DELETE, UPDATE, and REPLACE then this MySQL engine type can often offer significant performance improvements as it has done for sites like Slashdot, Yahoo, and Live Journal."

                                Would the 'archive table' type benefit Joomla over the existing InnoDB table type for the session table? I don't know enough…

                                  • Alphabetize everything

                                    Look guys, this stuff is really interesting but it is for DEVELOPERS!!! I am *so* sick and tired of dealing with common admin problems that a monkey could have previewed. A simple request: add the option to sort by alphabetical EVERY SINGLE FRIGGING LIST!!! Users and Admin DO NOT CARE about flashy code but about USABILITY!!!

                                      Focus on USABILITY dammit!
                                      Yes, we know that you are good code jockeys, but for ONCE think about people!!!! Joomla is MADDENINGLY complex even to administer. COMMON SENSE is completely lacking!!! It may be good code, but is is NOT FRIGGING USABLE!!!

                                      • Quick edit for fields in admin pages

                                        Joomla 3.x has very nice default themplate: isos. Improvements in ease and beauty. But Quick edit in every page in NEED, to no reload to little modify of field. (like in wordpress). That would increase speed of management of Joomla site very.
