  1. User Groups = Contact Categories

    It would be very useful if "user groups" and "contact categories" were linked. Likely, the way users are grouped and contacts are categorized follow the same logic, means they are classified the same way:
    user group CEOs = contact category CEOs
    admin group = contact category admin or webmaster
    board group = contact category board
    club members group = contact category members
    editor group = contact category editors
    public relations group = contact category public relations

    and so on...

    Idea 1: Import user groups to contact categories (not so sexy)
    Idea 2.1: Make user groups accessable in contacts (user goups…

    • Option to show expired articles in Category blog or list

      The idea is to have an extra option on the Content menu that will allow expired articles to be visible in the frond end by user level. Currently a super admin may see the expired articles when logged in.
      You may see what i mean exactly here by the team of cobalt8... http://www.mintjoomla.com/support/community-forum/user-item/1453-jeff/48-cobalt-8/3871-show-expired-articles-in-list-view-but-hide-them-in-article-view.html

      • CAS Authentication

        The integration of authentication with CAS (https://www.apereo.org/projects/cas) would really add value.
        A project already exists (https://github.com/chdemko/joomla-external-login) but depends on the work of a single developer.

        • Create a user group for admin support by default

          If a site admin has trouble with an extension, and reported that back to the developer, the developter often requests for an admin access. You can trust him an generate a Super User Account for him. Or not, and you create a own group, and the next hour you are configurating the ACL-Rules for that group.

          What about if joomla comes out-of-the-box with a predefined group 'Admin-Support'? Wich have by default only (login-)access to the backend, but nothing else? And you previously just have to granted the rights that are needed, an not to revoke all those you don't want?

          • Integrated Onboarding Assistant

            Offer a get started assistant. Ask the adminuser after initial login with a popup if he wants a guided tour. Show him how to change the template, find good extensions and also create the first content.

            Minimal solution: Module with a checklist of the first steps

            • Redirect in the user menu during the Password forgotten dialog

              If you go to the password forgotten dialog in the user menu, your e-mailaddress will be asked. If you enter an e-mailaddress which is not in the Joomla database, the website will remain on the same page.
              If you enter an e-mailadress which is present, a redirect will occur to enter your username and verficiation code. My idea is to change this behaviour and not to redirect. This suggest, that the e-mailadres is correct, so unwanted user's can abuse these addresses.

              • Drag and drop modules Front-end

                It would be nice to integrate a button on the Front-end for administrator to allow re-design by changing the position of the modules with Drag & Drop.

                • Random image module: allow multiple folders

                  The Random image module only allows me to specify one folder. It would be nice if I could specify multiple folders. For example in winter I could specify the "all-year" and "winter" folders and in summer I could specify "all-year" and "summer". Then I wouldn't have to move images in and out of my randomimages folder at different times of year.

                  • Expandable text box for Modules:Wrapper URL setting

                    The URL text box in the Wrapper module back-end is very small and not expandable. A typical iframe URL is long and does not fit in this box, making it difficult to view and edit. Please make the box bigger and expandable.

                    • Image Links in Content manager

                      In the media manager Id like the option so when you click on an images/pdfs you upload it gives a copy the url location for the item.. so its easier to link in articles.. It is hard to explain to clients how to link pdf documents to articles. this would make it easier

                        • Update all native components and modules to use Bootstrap 3

                          Bootstrap 2 is old and compared to his little brother, not user friendly and really responsive ready.

                          It think it would be great if we would jump to the latests version of Bootstrap at least for the frontend by updating all the components accordingly and to get rid of the old version.

                          Let's discuss it here.

                          • CDN for core Joomla files

                            If the core Joomla! files could be run from a CDN such as cdnjs.com then almost all users could use it. Therefore, we could cache it, therefore, any user visiting multiple Joomla sites would experience a really quick joomla.

                            We still need to allow people not to use the CDN in case they override core files. We still need to keep the database seperate, and the config file. There are probably some other files that we need to leave alone, and of course images.

                            I don't know how possible this is from a technical perspective.

                            • search improvement by implement on keyup and making an ajax request

                              this will improve the search, i was of an idea that the general search should give feedback without pressing the search button. it a bit difficulty to remember the entire phrase of a file , bug, etc. so this should be like a auto complete.

                                3. Will be able to see other posts of other users and duplicate it saying "I too want the same"

                                • Simpler password reset

                                  Password reset is too difficult for average user. Verifying the email link should be sufficient, it is not necessary to ask for the username as well, or as a matter of fact for the whole confirm screen, it is OBSOLETE,. This adds hardly anything to the security and not even stripe is using this system...
                                  We need to keep it simple and not stupidly safe.

                                  • Search area for JED

                                    Please, see any link in the JED. For example: http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/extension/site-management/cookie-control/cookies-policy-notification-bar

                                    The Search module is missing.
                                    This is Terrible.

                                    • Ability to search also in custom modules (mod_custom)

                                      Content is not always in the component area (for Joomla articles: com_content). It is also often in custom modules (mod_custom). So a way to index and search in these contents would be nice.

                                        • Debug Bar like Laravel Debugbar in Joomla next version

                                          Joomla have very powerful debug system inbuilt, but it will be awesome if we add debugbar like Laravel.
