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".

  1. Doctrine ORM for Model

    I think Doctrine ORM is the best data persistence model in PHP as it is similar to Hibernate to(an open source Java persistence framework project) as Doctrine is also OSS, so joomla quality will automatically increase as Doctrine will develop itself

          • Default Article Image

            Articles in com_content should have an option to select a default image.

            The image could then be used in article and category templates; and for sitemaps and social links (eg:Facebook <link property="og:image" content="http://mysite.com/images/article/image.jpg">)

                • Customised Privileges for Admins

                  Allowing members/admins to have customised privileges.
                  For example, you can allow a admin to enter the the control panel and have access only to certain components (say contacts only).

                    • Hierarchical category articles list module

                      There should be an option in categories' article list module to display them hierarchically. There is an option to nest article categories, creating subcategories. There is an option to list all articles with subcategories.

                      BUT there is no option for displaying this hierarchy in a module!

                      The articles list module should look like this:

                      Category
                      - Article
                      - Article
                      - Subcategory
                      - - Article
                      - - Article
                      - Article

                      Category 2
                      - Article
                      - Subcategory
                      - - Article
                      - - Article
                      - Article
                      - Article

                        • Clean Install (Re-Install) Option

                          Create an option that should allow administrators to clean install Joomla i.e. re-install from scratch after clearing all the existing installation. This is mainly needed when experienced any hacking or malware attack on the site.

                          Would make it lot easier to manage and administer the website.

                                    • Catch login attempts, log and ban IP (something like fail2ban)

                                      I'm administrating few Joomla sites. Recently we have large amount of bot trying to guess passwords. My idea is simple:
                                      - Log false login attempt IP (database and/or "logs/error.php" file)
                                      - Ban for x minutes those IPs which had y attempts in current hour (x, y might be configurable)

                                      In my opinion, this would save many, many sites from hacks!

                                      • Drag and drop module manager

                                        Drag and Drop Sort Order for the module manager and article manager etc. A simple function that would use moo or jquery to allow users to reorder their content or module order by simply drag and drop. This would help speed things up - A now the re ordering with up and down arrows or #'s seems to take along time when you have tons of content etc.

                                        • Custom mail subject prefix

                                          Currently when a mail is sent though the core contect form the sitename is added to the subject.

                                          Sitename: subject

                                          So when you have a long sitename or want to do a little SEO with your sitename the mailsubject can get quite long too.

                                          Adding an option in the contact menu item to enter a custom subject prefix can solve this. If left empty it uses the sitename else it uses the prefix.
