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".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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.

        • Order list of articles by "last modified"

          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.

          • Joomla to installer to be more aware of the extensions' compatability with migrations

            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.

                • 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"

                        • An undo button for actions

                          Allow undoing the previous action. If I have filtered all published items and then unpublish the item disappears but if I want it back it would be better to have an undo button than have to find the article again and republish it.

                          • USPS verification registration fields

                            Some sort of address verification and better registration that allows more features. Verification or suggestion of address format gives administrators and developers the ability to ensure the data is correct and entered in the way that sets a standard for developers, ultimately increasing accuracy and much better search quality and results in directories. Some site ideas like social media needs many more registration fields to be available.

                            • Redirect Manager: Reset hits

                              Would it be possible to allow reset of hits in Redirect Manager?
                              If I could reset hits to 0 and after some time verify that they are still at zero hits I would know they are not needed anymore. That way it would be easier to discover when specific redirects can be deleted.

                                  • save & clear cache

                                    A "Save and clear cache" button nextto the "Save", "Save & Close" buttons in content (and elsewhere) so that developers or content creators can see their changes immediatly without having to reset the cache via another page or tab.
                                    It would also be nice that it would only reset the relevant cache (e.g. of the current content only).

                                      When i search i would like to search by selecting some specific tag or tags, so the results will be items that match the search query that user types but from the specified selected tags

                                      • Alternative Layouts for Single Article Menu Items

                                        At the moment it isn't possible to use alternative layouts for articles belonging to a single article menu item. Only to articles in a blog category menu type this feature is applied (in the logic of specifity). It would be a great thing to have this feature also for article belonging to a single article. The single article menu type is very often used in Joomla! systems and with this alternative layouts it is very easy to create slightly different layouts which could be very easy applied by the normal user without doing anything in the code or CSS files.

                                        • Images in Smart Search Results

                                          It would be nice to have the option to show images in search results.

                                          Right now the only way to do this is to hack the core. As the associated plugin cannot be overwritten.

                                          Either have the option in the admin,
                                          or at least add the ->select('a.images AS image'); to the content, tags, category and weblink in the plugins > finder because the com_finder > search can easily be overwritten.
