      • Clearing cache after 3.4 upgrade documentation

        The documentation found below, explaining the 2.5 to 3.x upgrade path, could be updated with the suggestion that if your Save and Save & Close buttons don't work after the upgrade, then hard clear the browser cache.

        • Images in Smart Search Results

          It would be nice to have the option to show images in search results.

          Right now the only way to do this is to hack the core. As the associated plugin cannot be overwritten.

          Either have the option in the admin,
          or at least add the ->select('a.images AS image'); to the content, tags, category and weblink in the plugins > finder because the com_finder > search can easily be overwritten.

          • User groups restrict editing / modification

            In some instances an administrator may want to allow an "admin" to create/modify users but not allow add/modify of the user groups (viewing usergroups would be allowable).

            Currently the user manager is an all of nothing ball game for editing.

            a few modifications would be needed like adding a new section to the access.xml for controlling the additional permissions for usergroups editing (something like the following)

            <section name="usergroups">
            <action name="core.admin" title="JACTION_ADMIN" description="JACTION_ADMIN_COMPONENT_DESC" />
            <action name="core.manage" title="JACTION_MANAGE" description="JACTION_MANAGE_COMPONENT_DESC" />
            <action name="core.edit" title="JACTION_EDIT" description="COM_GROUPS_ACCESS_EDIT_DESC" />
            <action name="core.edit.state" title="JACTION_EDITSTATE" description="COM_GROUPS_ACCESS_EDITSTATE_DESC" />
            <action name="core.edit.own" title="JACTION_EDITOWN" description="COM_GROUPS_ACCESS_EDITOWN_DESC" />
            </section>

            • Article Sorting by unpublish Date in category listing

              Article Sorting by unpublish Date as per the discussion here
              http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=706&t=792975

              Good for events where you have set unpublish date and want the article to be shown in an ordered list. Particularly helpful if you have members adding events setting the event date as the unpublish date. It requires no effort on part of admin to order the list or remove the article when it has past.

              • Images on RSS Feed

                I think it will be interesting add images (intro or full or both) in RSS Feed, actually this options is not allowed and for doing that we need to change the core of Joomla or use an extension.

                • New module navigation principle for module based sites

                  Hi!
                  My site on 90% based on modules, and it's very hard to manage more than 200 modules. Some modules I need to sort by name of page, some others by some names of working groups, and so on.

                  So I advise to change some navigation prenciples. Describtion see here - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzvfkIom9uZtb1R5N2l5T0VxNU0/view?usp=sharing

                  • Improve Article Insert Image Modal Window

                    The idea here is to improve the "Insert Image" modal window when you want to insert an image within an Article.

                    Today, as of Joomla 3.4, when you want to insert an image within an article, a modal window is opened and all images of your image folder is displayed.

                    Suppose that you have ten of thousand of image in that folder. The performance is very bad because the modal window will create a thumbnail of each image.
                    This is very time consuming, specially because you have to wait that the modal window finish to load the thumbnails. Until then…

                    • 'Select All' in media manager.

                      'Select All' in media manager so that I can delete all files at once, rather than having to select files individually.

                      • profile picture

                        A user should be able to add their profile picture. This also should be a standard embedded option to Joomla. Yes there are plugins, but they or don't work or are not available for jml3 or have loads of added extras which you don't need or can use. I get many requests for this, but there is not any good plugin for this available. Also other components can use this. I don't want to use extra community components like CB or any other. Thanks!

                            The new JED is user unfriendly and desperately needs a new but better look or just bring the old JED back.

                                  • Delete my account

                                    The Delete my Account Plugin should be standard core plugin of joomla. Someone must have the right/option to unregister on every Joomla site. I never understanded why this is not standard. One can enter but never leave or be forgotten. So please embed this to the standard option, so a user can delete their account if they wish.

                                      • Option to disable tags

                                        Tags component is cool, but it would be better if we would have more control over if we want to enable it or not.
                                        Users believe that if they start adding tags (and they add all keywords they can think of), they are doing a great SEO work. The result is the creation of thousands pages/urls of duplicate content. It should be wise to have the ability to only enable it when it's appropriate and not having the tags field visible all the time.
