  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!

    • Individual article module

      If Joomla had a module that allowed for insertion of single selected articles non-experienced administrators do not have to fiddle around with custom html modules (which is a very dummie unfriendly name by the way).

      Options could be:
      title (show|hide)
      linked title (yes|no)
      content: (introtext|fulltext|none)
      readmore (yes|no)
      readmore_title (yes|no)

      • Reinstall Joomla

        One-click ''reinstall'' core Joomla. Many of us sometimes play with Joomla too much :) It can be great future to avoid many problems for nontech users

            • Header modules

              Implement custom html modules that go in the header of the template for things like Google Analytics, custom scripts, etc. There are times when custom scripts need to go on only 1 page, not all of them, but templates are all or nothing, unless you duplicate the template with the script for just a few articles. It's also safer and easier than editing the template itself. It's not very efficient.

              • Add the ability to move images from one folder to another in media manager

                It would be great it were possible to move images from one folder to another by dragging them. If the image dragged has been used in some article already, automatically update the URL so that the browser can still find it without having to manually change everything.

                • Mass module edit

                  Implement an option to edit more than one module at a time. Things like the position, show/hide title, and assignments would be awesome to update on a mass scale.

                  • Multiple categories filter in article manager

                    A tiny small suggestion:
                    There are cases where we need to filter articles by categories in article manager and choose more than 1 category.
                    This is more considerable, when we have to deal with Multilingual content and the way we usually build this within the core.
                    We might end up with multiple categories with the same name, below a Parent Language Name category. It would be cool if we would be able to filter articles,
                    from multiple categories, so we can have displayed all articles from various languages that belong to the same context-category.

                    • 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.

                      • Filter by menu item in the module manager

                        I like the idea of ​​having a way to see which modules are assigned to a particular menu item. But going item by item (you have to open one by one) is very frustrating . To have a filter in the Module Manager which allows filtering by menu item and have all modules in a list without opening each menu item individually, it would be crazy.

                        • Import data from Wordpress

                          As someone who made over 500 websites, I often got request to migrate existing website made in Wordpress to Joomla. This could be great way to increase user base, as many Wordpress users needs something bigger and better than Wordpress (Joomla), but there are only few extensions that do migration to Joomla. And some of that websites have few hundreds of posts.

                          • Prestashop Integration

                            Although there are some shopping carts / ecommerce add-ons for Joomla already, it would be great to have integration with other open source ecommerce solutions such as PrestShop.

                            Either APIs or via an extension / module.

                            The integration should be two-way so that Joomla sites can display products, categories, shopping carts etc and so that Prestashop can display better CMS content.

                            Also, single sign-on between the two systems would be great.

                            Thanks

                            Craig

                              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.

                                  • Make the "batch" button more functional

                                    At the moment, most administrative pages that list some kind of user content (articles, menu items, extensions, etc.) have a "batch" button along the toolbar in Joomla 3.x, which can only change the access level, language, etc.

                                    Wouldn't it be amazing if the batch button did so much more? What if I could add the same note, or hide the title, or even configure publishing dates of multiple checked items, all at once?

                                    The batch tool is very limited and it would be great to be able to change a lot more in large bundles to save time in developing…

                                      • Optimization & Scalibility

                                        Joomla has matured a lot over the past years but it is still bulky under the hood and difficult to maintain. The cost of scalling is expensive, the time has come to really optimize the framework to the max with better conventions for components and plugins. How could we it make slim and trim?
