    • Full support for Google Rich Snippets (products, reviews, people etc.)

      It is becoming increasingly important to be able to mark up ones website for Google to recognize products, events, reviews, people and whatever else.
      At the moment it is impossible to implement this because the (WYSIWYG) editors erase such markup - IMHO this is urgent.

      • It's of a great necessity for the feature of extension source file editing from backend to get rid of various extension problems

        Nowadays there are lots of hassles while finding the problems in case the extensions not working for many reasons like jquery conflict, duplicate codes and other technical reasons.So if joomla backend has the extension file editing capability then developers/site owners could narrow down the problem easily instead of logging in hosting control panel for file editing.Many site owners don't like to give access to cp login to developers.Wordpress has this feature so everybody will agree with me the necessity of having it.

        • A password meter!

          You should add a password meter, using for example the zxcvbn library, I guess it would help users to choose better passwords and therefore increase the security of Joomla!.

          • Front-End & Back-end central control of SEO

            Joomla SHOULD have it’s own SEO control component (See SEO BOSS)

            Also, in fronted, when on mode edition, you should be able to control the SEO of a Page (as Wordress do)

            • “SEO” name Tab in Article Manager: Edit Article

              Simply put All SEO parameters under a Clearly label SEO Tabs. This will help find those import ants parameters for Joomla novice.

              Actually hidden under the “Publishing” tab — Publishing & SEO are 2 different things

              • include wordpress features in joomla

                Joomla is realy powerful But worpress is more easy to done and less click.
                Therefore Wordpress is more common than Joomla. If admin panel of joomla changed to simplicity (by hide some pro options or less common options)
                and use ajax load and edit (like Quickedit in wordpress), That is ULTIMATE JOOMLA CMS and lovely!

                  • Official and picked extensions for current versions

                    Joomla has very secure and up-to-date core, But extensions on JED isn't official and reviewed by joomla security team, and sometimes updates of new J! comes very lately, and some necessary addons isn't FREE. Therefore integration between core and extensions is necessary. It means official and picked FREE extensions for every current version of Joomla. It is Joomla ultimate !

                    • Multiple component on a single menu.

                      Imagine if instead of choosing one thing when you create a menu you have a list of component to display on that same page.

                      That way you could make a landing page with Complex Layout for exemple. Like I want 1 leading article from my news category then 6 articles wrapping on 3 col layout.

                      Then I would like on the same page be able to put content from Another Category with Another Layout. a 6 Col layout of only intro text for exemple.

                      Then Maybe I would like to put the JomSocial Component at the end of everything.

                      And…

                        • Single Sign-on User Profile (Unified Identity Management System)

                          At its very basic level, there are essentially two key elements which make up a Content Management System: 1) Content and 2) Identity. Currently, Joomla! has NO centralized single-sign-on of its IDENTITY / User Profile, so the users are forced to login more than once, if there is more than ONE key function. For instance, Joomla.org requires the user to register and login to use the Forum, but once logged in, the user can't access OTHER areas, without registering to use that extension as well. With a UNIFIED Profile, all 3rd Party extensions would depend on Joomla's CORE User Profile…

                          • Article Manager: query published but expired articles

                            Separate out the Published But Expired articles in the Article Manager in the following locations:
                            1) In Status Ascending
                            2) In Status Descending
                            3) In Search Tools -->Select Status.

                            This will make it easier to find old articles that should be removed.

                            Thank You!

                            • assign multiple categories to article

                              Have seen that this idea is closed but you should re-open it.
                              Its true that you can multi-tag an aricle but thats all.
                              Maybe i'm missed it in J3.x but you can't get a article list based on tags like you can assign a category list to a menu item.
                              As our sites menusystem has different menu items who are showing category list and having many aricles who are clearly have there place in multiple categories it should be great that this could be included in the core.

                              • custom positions

                                To make the interface more user friendly, a feature for adding custom positions on the template can be added.
                                All templates have fixed set of positions for various modules and articles.
                                If the power to customize them is given to the user it will result in great dynamic sites and content display.

                                  It would be very handful if the top bar with the save, save & close, cancel etc to be sticky because on large pages we have to go to the top to save our work. For one page is nothing to go to top. But when I mass change settings like in K2, I do it at the same time in multiple tabs and it is hard to go to top again and again. So that is what I am suggesting. I thing I can do it with css like the bottom bar which is sticky but it would be…

                                  • Keep it simple - don't add complexity

                                    Most of the features suggested will add complexity, and the complexity that Joomla has already is discouraging new users.

                                    I only welcome features that make Joomla easier to use, and simpler such as:

                                    Add an option to enable a captcha field on the login module and login screen to prevent spam registration attempts.

                                    Make it easier to find trashed articles and menu items, and clear aliases that are reserved by trashed items.

                                    Fix the publish icon in the trash - it is a trash can. What I expect to permanently delete an item from trash just restores the item instead.

                                    • Change tracking for content in articles

                                      The ability to have changes to an article viewed by an approved before it is published. The change tracking should work similar to MS Word where new content added is highlighted in green and and content removed is highlighted in red with strike through. At present there is only version control but very difficult to easily view small changes which makes the process very time consuming.

                                      This is a top end feature of leading content management systems and I can't believe it hasn't been made a big issue of by the Joomla community!

                                      • Which extension did you use to create this?

                                        Sorry, we would like this feature on our website.

                                        • Registration Management

                                          I would love to be able to create custom fields for registration AND have a nice way of showing a list of users, by specified field, for the administrator to see and possible print/export.
