    • 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.

      • 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!

        • include '-use parent-' when selecting options

          When selecting options, when creating or editing a menu item for example, in the drop down list for 'template style' for example, put the Use Parent option.

          • Revised JED or Old JED back

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

            • 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.

                • Standardt template position

                  Example, now some template have “left” and other user “position-7” and they use the same position. Would be awesome if can made a standart for all joomla template, so u can change the template and they use the same position and not a random name. Also, if the developers whant can have additional template position.

                  • The Joomla core update feature to be a two step process : Preview, then install if agreed

                    Coming from an ERP environment, when ever we install a patch or an update, we use a Preview step that let us know what files or database tables will be altered. I would love to see that in Joomla, because sometimes core changes breaks things and that will at least reduce the risk if the admin knows what's going in.

                    Good job team and cheers

                        • An option to merge similar tags

                          Right now you can't merge similar tags. It would be nice to add this option to be able to only have to rename tags to merge them (like Zotero does for instance)

                            • Characters minimum and maximum as search settings

                              Default settings have at least 3 characters to perform a search in Joomla and 20 maximum. To modify these values must be done in the languages / file xx-YY / xx-YY.localise.php

                              If we put these values as configurable fields, will be easier to modify them to suit our needs.

                                • 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"…

                                  • automatic resize images for template

                                    I saw this in prestashop and is amazing!! When you change the template, the images resize automatic according to the template. So generate thumbails and the template made the thumbails images for the size in the template and you no need rework all!!!!

                                    • you should copy what makes drupal, in wordpress making with the templates that are free I like it too

                                      you should copy what makes drupal because here my boss is in love with it and he don´t want to use joomla anymore, in wordpress making with the templates that are free I like it too ,I like joomla but my boss no longer want to use because according to him it is more robust drupal, hopefully you make more improvements for not stop using joomla

                                      deberían de copiar lo que hace drupal ya que aquí mi jefe está enamorado de él y ya no quiere usar joomla, tambíen lo que hace wordpress con las plantillas que son gratis eso…

                                        • virtual stock exchange

                                          Need to develop basic Football (soccer) Stock Exchange functionality for a website. Along the lines of http://www.hsx.com/, but for Football.

                                          The basic website is based on joomla with component and module.

                                          On top of the current joomla functionality we would like to add the capabilities of trading virtual stocks using virtual currency.

                                          We would like to maintain the current membership structure already used by joomla.

                                          The data should be grabbed from a separate database, or database table that contains the data of leagues, clubs and players. The backoffice/admin system should be integrated with Wordpress and flexible enough for any…
