        • New important icon on the install from web tab would make things much easier

          Extension manager | install from Web tab. There are icons such as $ for commercial. P for plug-in. Please make an icon for postgreSQL compatible.

          At the moment it is very difficult if you are using postgreSQL to tell which extensions can be chosen. The extension developers very rarely mention this important information in the description that shows when you select an extension.

          This icon would also encourage developers to make postgreSQL compatible extensions. As they would want to advertise their products to the postgreSQL community. Also would save so much time for postgreSQL users when looking for extensions. Sounds…

            • onError system event for plugins to hook into.

              When an error is raised in the system it would be helpful for an event to be triggered so plugins could perform custom code.

              • custom page on failed login

                Currently we can set a page to redirect user to on login and logout.

                If we have several sections, each restricted to a certain user group, a registered user could attempt to login to a section he hasn't access to.
                He will be logged in because he has access to another section, but he will be redirected by Joomla frontpage with a "you do not have access" message.

                This is confusing to user. It should be possible to redirect user to a custom page in this case.

                  • install access-controlled user management

                    install control of super user over:

                    1) the ability of admins seeing and managing data of users of:
                    - groups of higher level than the admins
                    - groups that admins are not a member of

                    2) the ability of co-admins assigning users to (higher level) groups.

                    The solution posted on the forum* has not survived the latest update to J3.4.8 in my case.

                    Note that article management in the back-end IS access-controlled; admins see what they're supposed to see. Doing the same for user management, wouldn't that be consistent policy ?

                          • New user mail should be easily editable

                            When we add a new user, this user will receive a mail with his username and password. The content of this mail is found in the language file and doesn't support HTML code - way too old fashioned!

                            Of course the site admin should be able to edit this mail from the backend using the editor, so that headers, links, images etc. can be used.

                            Also, it should be possible to set up different mails for different user groups. We have several user groups with very different needs - but unfortunately the all get the same mail when I add…

                            • Update all native components and modules to use Bootstrap 3

                              Bootstrap 2 is old and compared to his little brother, not user friendly and really responsive ready.

                              It think it would be great if we would jump to the latests version of Bootstrap at least for the frontend by updating all the components accordingly and to get rid of the old version.

                              Let's discuss it here.

                              • Categories for Modules in the Back-End Manager

                                The module manager NEEDS a way to categorize modules, mainly for organizational purposes but a module category could be used to assign pages or other tasks too.

                                I sometimes have to create 20 different modules for one purpose, say to display different category mosaics on different pages. I don't mind assigning them to pages individually but it would be great to be able to create categories for modules in the back-end and use a "Search Tools" like button to filter by category while working on them, or to avoid scrolling through 100 modules (no matter how they're "sorted") because I…

                                • QuickBooks

                                  It would be nice, if there was a QuickBooks interface built for Joomla. The interface would transfer data to/fro QuickBooks such as time sheets, bills, invoices, payments for bills and invoices, customers, vendors, etc.

                                  This interface will simply write data into MySQL tables. From there, we can build custom pages on how we want to use that data. The data must have flags on it so when the data is changed, the Joomla QuickBooks interface will know to transfer the data back to QuickBooks company file.

                                  • I think 'Save & Next' button that will move menu, category, article etc list to next logical one

                                    Introducing 'Save & Next' button that will move menu, category, article etc list to next logical one will significantly save developers' time when huge number of repetitive action is required on the same type of function.

                                    Am currently working on a site with dozens of menus and categories working on that makes me think lots of dudes out there might fall in the same boat as me :)

                                      • Don't force the use of any specific CSS/Javascript framework

                                        I am developing my own templates and I want to give my own preferred look with my own CSS/Javascript codes. To do so, I had to add a lot of additional CSS codes just to negate many of the Joomla Bootstrap codes which get in the way.

                                        Therefore, I PHP unset() the loading of Joomla's Bootstrap file. Should I want to use a CSS/Javascript framework (Bootstrap 2 or Bootstrap 3 or another framework) I know how to incorporate it on my own. I don't want Joomla forcing me on using an old version of Twitter Bootstrap.

                                        Unfortunately. unsetting the Bootstrap…

                                        • Module asignment as a toggle

                                          Assuming there are multiple modules assigned to a menu and I want to remove them from that page, the easiest way to find them all is to go Menu management, open the specific menu item and check assigned modules from a nice list. To unassign a module, you have to open Edit Module settings first, open the menu assignment tab and scroll to menus and uncheck the desired one. It would be way much better to have this as a simple toggle directly in the list (in Module assignment tab from the menu item)
