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".

  1. Menu fields enhanced to include Icon tags as well as images

    I think it would be a great Idea to add the extra functionality to the the menu Link Type to allow users to add HTML tags to menu items instead of images. e.g. <i class="icon-home"></i> for bootstrap or <span class="ui-icon ui-icon-home"></span> for jQueryUI

    This should be easy to implement simply add the extra options to item_component.xml and then people can implement in template overrides if they wish.

    I would suggest something like :
    <field name="menu_anchor_extra_tag"
    type="list"
    label="COM_MENUS_ITEM_FIELD_ANCHOR_EXTRA_TAG_LABEL"
    description="COM_MENUS_ITEM_FIELD_ANCHOR_EXTRA_TAG_DESC"
    > <option value="">no extra tag</option>
    <option value="i">use bootstrap style tag &lt;i&gt;&lt;/i&gt;</option>
    <option value="span">use span tag &lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;</option>
    </field>

    <field name="menu-anchor_extra" type="text"
    label="COM_MENUS_ITEM_FIELD_ANCHOR_EXTRA_LABEL"
    description="COM_MENUS_ITEM_FIELD_EXTRA_CSS_DESC"…

    • Simple customization of TinyMCE template system

      Adding the possibility of creating the diractory /templates/THEME/editor
      which contains the files:
      template_list.js
      customtemplate.html

      And the file template_list.js contains the list of HTML custom files such as:

      var tinyMCETemplateList = [
      // Name, URL, Description
      ["Custom layout", "templates/THEME/editor/customtemplate.html", "HTMLLayout"]
      ];

      And now the TinyMCE will be able to select the custom template with this simple mod:

      Edit the file plugins/editor/tinymce/tinymce.php on line #429 in this way:

      // Template
      $templatetool = $this->params->get('template', 1);

      if ($templatetool)
      {
      $plugins[] = 'template';
      $toolbar4_add[] = 'template';

      $template_list_path = $templates_path . '/' . $template . '/editor/template_list.js';

      // Note this check for the template_list.js file will be…

        • Administrator error reporting

          Error Reporting options in Global configuration, to enable error reporting only for the Admin area.
          Also we could consider adjusting error reporting enabling/displaying by usergroup, so for example a Super User can view errors, while other won't.

          • isis template: put the Search and Filtering tools for Articles on the left column and out in the ope

            I really would like for the isis template to put the Search and Filtering tools for Articles back over on the left column and out in the open at all times. They make sorting and searching so much simpler.

            My list of Articles get up to 100 items long so I use these filtering dropdowns extensively. Having to make the two extra steps to get to them - then to find that they have disappeared every time I want to look at something is quite frustrating. I mutter each and every time I need to use them.

            The earlier Joomla…

            • Take a glance at the Website Template Deployer (WTD)

              Between the developer and the customer( or website owner), someone became the Website Template Deployer (WTD). They do not develop or design something , but help others who want to own a website( website owner). Maybe we should meke further segment to this our CMS roles.

              • Modules - Allow Pre and Post Content for All Modules

                I wish that it would become standard that every module have a PRE and POST area so that you can insert some text before or after any module. Many of the default Joomla! modules allow this (Login Module for example) and it is nice on certain sites to be able put a description before or after something.

                For example, to do a slideshow, you have to put the one module with the title on and the slideshow in it. and then follow that with a new module with the title hidden in order to add a "readmore" which also puts…

                  • Ability to tag menu items, so relevant menu items can show up in the related documents list.

                    By being able to tag menu items, even components that don't support the joomla 3 tag system can be integrated in the tag system and can show up in the related item list of a document.

                    • Ability to controll the In Built feature.

                      Joomla Loads all the extension even if i am making a static website that contains only Html Content. There should be feature to controll the load time (By selecting the features needed) either at the time of installation or after that. Suppose i am making a static website and i do not need user registration on my website then joomla user component should not loaded. It shall improve website performance

                      • 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!

                        • Language Select enhanced

                          Must improve the Plugin System - Language Filter.

                          Include a way to customize the context menu to choose language, that the function is extended to the following:
                          - Menu Drop-down or Drop-up.
                          - Menu columns 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 columns.
                          - Menu Skin by color palette in Color Picker.
                          - Optional Button to modal window (Popup), is ideal for large sites in multiple languages​​, 10 or 20 language.

                              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.

                                • 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)

                                  • Breadcrumbs or other indicator of the current folder in Media Manager

                                    In the Media Manager, it would be great to have the name of the current directory/folder indicated somewhere on the page. With long or complex directory structure under /images, it's easy to lose one's place.

                                        • 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.
