  1. 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.

      • 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!!!!

          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.

              • 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…

                • Re-thinking the Media manager for better integration with 3rd party extensions.

                  Hello,

                  I'd like to see the media manager becoming the only place where all media (photo, video, music and files) from any joomla extensions are displayed. If they can't be stored in it, then at least be visible and selectable (symbolic links).

                  Right now every extensions use their own directory and unfortunately it makes everything much more complicated to manage.

                  Creating user driven websites with many extensions such blogs, shopping carts, forums, communities, etc bring a lot of content. But not having the possibility to display all user related media in one place make thing NOT user friendly at all.

                  • To produce modules within the Joomla cms using built-in and user-added graphical elements.

                    Just think that I have a blue box. I want to write a phrase in it and use it as module not as a picture which is placed in my content. I wish there was a kind of built-in ability to make customized modules right within joomla, instead of adding images and demographics to my website which really increase the site's loading time.

                    • sort articles by date of revision

                      Now that we have a versioning system it would be helpful if the Article Manager could sort the articles by the date they were last revised. When there are many contributors to the content of a site, this can help the webmaster find recent changes and maintain order

                        • Right now Joomla add all the module component js, css file at head.

                          Right now Joomla add all the module component js, css file at head. Joomla might consider this to give more facilities to the developer to add css js file separately and not just at head section.

                              say my domain is www.example.com
                              if i remove index.php by using .htaccess, index.php is there. if anyone type www.example.com/indexp.php/abou-us they will get a result.

                              • 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"…

                                  Adding the possibility of creating the diractory /templates/THEME/editor
                                  which contains the files:

                                  customtemplate.html

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

                                  var tinyMCETemplateList = [
                                  // Name, URL, Description

                                  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)

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

                                    • 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…

                                        • 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…
