        I think that would make a huge change to the code of Joomla.
        Indeed, implementing such a feature would mean you would have to implement some frontend construction tool that would allow you to tell which fields would appear and where, for every content type format. (List, detail, featured, etc.).

        But that would be great though.
        Joomla actually offers you to add fields to components easily but doesn't allow you to assign a "content type". Which means it looks like a draft.

        IMO before getting into an idea of adding native CCK which I am for, the SEO/SEF mechanism of Joomla has to be optimized first. Like adding more flexibility on what would appear as the URL so we can stop using 3rd party components that handles SEO/SEF which slows down loading time and often time add another layer of head ache when it comes to managing SEF.

        It would be great while you can expand, since in some cases it is not necessary.

        Marking up content with microformats, microdata, or RDF is already implemented for articles and, perhaps contacts. Why not improve this trend and use this approach for creation custom content types, based on types introduced in schema.org
        Would be very logical, flexible, yet unified.

        No further replacements of the core. An easy CCK integrated into the core of Joomla that take advantage of new features (tags, versioning ...). It would be wonderful!

        Keep CCK as an extension. Thtere's enough complexity now. As an extension, those that need a CCK can add the one they like or need.

        A CCK would be very welcome. But within the CCK I would like to see easy creation of 1-to-many and many-to-many relations and the possibillity to use the realtions when creating forms and views, both in the frontend and in the backend.

        Atleast some basic additional fields should be made available like Input / Textarea / Select / Image / Checkbox / Date / Link / Radio Button / Select Multiple /

        The great lack in Joomla.
        Drupal does it nativly and in a near future, it will be absolutly necessary for Joomla survival as major CMS.
        Component like Seblod, K2 avec too heavy for big website, Joomla! need to hase theses features in the core for easy website development and fill the gap from Drupal, EasyPublish and others strong CMS

        @Keith, until Joomla starts to offer a solid core CCK , all our projects will be done using Drupal. By the way, i developed the official Mcdonalds Arabia website using joomla (previous version, its changed now) and i was very joomla guy, but the lack of CCK and the need for lot of components to build what became basic features of any website, where the website become slower and slower with every new component , is wat push me away

        Or, if that type of functionality is needed for a particular project, use one of the several very strong FREE components that provide that functionality.

        @Hassan, you obviously haven't forgotten about Joomla, otherwise why are you bothering to post on this suggestion?

      • Hassan BarjasHassan Barjas commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        this request have been pending since years and the joomla team did nothing about it (mostly coz of agreements with components providers) . just do wat i did.. SWITCH TO DRUPAL and forget about joomla
