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. Front end user article ordering

    Front end users can not change article ordering manually. As far as I can see, it can only be done indirectly by changing publishing date.

    Article authors who must not get access to the backend (because it would be too complicated for them) are unable to reorder the articles.

    Please allow for front end-user article reordering. Ideally via drag&drop as it already works very well in the back end.

    • Automatic Login After Registration

      Currently, when a user registers for an account on a Joomla! site, they are taken to the login form and asked to provide the credentials they just entered in registration. This is clunky. It would be much nicer if users where automatically logged in after registration if the email verification is disabled, or logged in automatically after completing the email verification if it is enabled. There is a $37 extension that fixes this issue, but it really should be part of the Joomla! core.

      • need <jdoc:include type="foot" /> to place some files just before body end tag.

        I think we need <jdoc:include type="foot" /> to place some files just before body end tag. would be good if its added in the system.

        • Weblinks

          I wish there was a way to list social media links for a web link so that you could automatically also show all the social media links for the same resource. I realize I can add these in the description for a link but it would be very helpful if there was a social media options tab that you could add any additional links and then they would show up as icons at the bottom or top of the link description.

          For example - I am using web links to link to various organizations, all who have web sites, facebook…

          • Add an event action for article models query or category model query.

            it would be nice if we can set some additional sql filter or parameter for the display query using a plugin just like we can do in the search component just before the query got submitted. that will actually give us quite some good options to change how our articles are being displayed. e.g i had to customized search plugin and joomla content model to make a range for start date and end date as a filter due to the project requirements.

            • reset or forgot password plugin

              Create a plugin that handles front-end password reset capabilities (generating a token, validating that token, and resetting a token). This would be similar to the Joomla authentication plugin.

              • Option for Category Blog Layout tab to display sub-category headings

                In the 'Layout' tab of the Category Blog Menu Item, there is an option to display articles from sub-categories ( 'Include Subcategories').

                This is very useful setting up directory, catalogue, news and other layouts, as it arranges the sub-categories and then their content in a user defined order.

                The only thing missing is an option to allow the sub-category titles to appear above each section of articles.

                Without this feature we have to resort to using CSS (using the ':before' rule and 'content' property), all sorts of work-arounds that use loadposition, or additional extensions.

                • update templates to use bootstrap 2 and 3 with a toggle switch in the Admin Template area

                  update included templates (bees, protostar, etc) to use bootstrap 2 and 3 with a toggle switch in the Admin area to select which version you want to use so you can also create custom templates using Bootstrap 3 and easily override the default of Bootstrap 2 in Joomla back-end but still able to use bootstrap 2 and existing templates that use it as well.

                      • Last Folder Accessed (option)

                        I'd like to have Joomla! remember the last server-based folder accessed.
                        For example, I'm currently adding images to product details; all the images have been uploaded to the server in their own folder (e.g. images/products/vinyl/7-inch).
                        It would make [my] work so much quicker if I could click to open the file viewer and be taken to the last folder accessed.
                        OR give the option... have a Last Folder button on the file viewer. There's enough space for it (next to the Up button).lessI'd like to have Joomla! remember the last server-based folder accessed.

                        • List users last log in time and date

                          Add a way to list users last log in date and time, or last few logins on the front end to that user when they log in. i know admins can view the last login date and time, but making this available to the user would be attractive too.

                          • "Is your user on Mobile / Tablet / Desktop" function

                            Wordpress has a function wp_is_mobile(), that allows you to add adaptive elements to your theme or plugin (albeit not telling the difference between a tablet and a mobile).

                            Whilst this isn't an over-complicated thing to add manually to one's Joomla extension, it is something that needs patching should new user agents appear.

                            A core function could be patched with Joomla updates, which is why I think it would be a useful feature to have.

                              I strongly suggest to add a possibility to order the articles in the article manager by "last modified" right now that date does not exist at all in the article list. We finally could see the last changes and do not have to search them.

                                Moving from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5 was a hit and miss saga mainly due to extensions. In most cases, we end up installing the new version and then copy over all the contents one by one because migration fails. Now with Joomla 2.5 out-dated, it has been the same moving to version 3.4. Just tonight the installer stalled while doing a migration fom 2.5 to 3.4.1 and just didn't finish the migration. So, I have to start all over again.

                                Would it be great if the installer would just disable all the extensions that are not yet compatible and just…

                                • Sorting Weblinks

                                  I would like to see and upgrade to the weblinks component with more sorting options for Weblinks, specifically under category view. I've been attempting to setup one category that will randomize the list of links on every page load. Even extensions are difficult to find for such a simple arrangement.

                                  • automatic life span of articles

                                    Maybe an global option to article where you can change the life span by default.

                                    • Use the latest version of Bootstrap, make it Blog/Magazine friendly, improve Media Manager, it needs an easier way to have URL...

                                      1) Media Manager (=> see WordPress)
                                      2) Use the latest version of Bootstrap (with the ability to use Bootstrap shortcodes in articles... )
                                      3) Comments and, in general, make it more Blog/Magazine friendly
                                      4) Better SEO (for example, it needs an easier way to have URLs like WordPress... )

                                      I would really like stay with Joomla as my main CMS, but as I use WordPress more and more - I realize how much it is better for many things... the only thing that, for now, keeps me away from WordPress is this: https://www.akeebabackup.com/support/admin-tools/22582-admin-tools-pro-for-wordpress.html

                                        • Blog view should be usable in tags and categories. It should be added if we want to

                                          Blog view should be usable in tags and categories. It should be considered as a view making. Also we may need to make a logic relation between tags and categories for example (("tag1" and "category2") not (tag3)) >> "blog view"
