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.

    • 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

      • File based configuration

        Let it be possible to store absolutely all configuration (global config, component/module/plugin config) in files. With an option to cache some of it (database, APC, memcached etc).

        Let it be possible to override all kinds of configuration in different environments: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/joomla-dev-general/uL4xQ7V4FEo

        That way we can keep our configuration in version control (Git), ensure there are no configuration mismatches between a local installation of the Joomla site and the production deployed one, and eventual rollbacks are easier to perform.

            • 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.

                • preview button

                  Add a preview button either to the tinyMCE editor, or to the Joomla admin top menu, maybe besisde the "View site" button, so that changes can be previewed while creating or editing articles so that it is not necessary to actually publish and link to an article to see what it will look like (this is absurdly not how it should be!).

                            • 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.

                                        Well. This would be really helpful when we need real user's emails not fakes. Now users have to confirm their email only on registration, afterwards it can be easily changed by user. In order to make sure users can not use someone else's or fake address a new one should be confirmed like in "Email Activation" plugin

                                        • Keyboard shortcut alternatives to menu icon clicking

                                          Have keyboard shortcut akin to menu icons, re: CTL-S for SAVE, etc. etc. so you could save content w/o needed to scroll up the page to SAVE and continue working; just do a CTL-S and keep rolling.
