  1. 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.

              • Email Confirmation on change

                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

                • Core functions to remove stylesheets and scripts

                  Currently, functionality exists to add stylesheets, scripts and custom head data with the JDocument class by using the addStyleSheet and addScript static methods. But oftentimes when customizing a Joomla installation, the need arises to override CSS and JavaScript loaded into Joomla either by the core or an extension. With CSS particularly, the most readily-available method of currently doing so is to redeclare a style, but this reduces efficiency as it causes unnecessary redundancies in programming and result in excess code.

                  Similar to the way we have the ability to override views in Joomla templates, it would be of great value…

                  • 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.

                    • Introduce managable Contact Profiles

                      As many people create web sites with different scopes, there is a need for customizing contact information, which is not possible at the moment.

                      As of j1.6 it is already possible to customize the profile data of users. It is done in the fieldset profiles and you only need to edit an xml file in order to have new fields.

                      That's great!

                      I would like to win the joomla team for the idea to do the same things for contacts.

                      It is not hard to be done, because the mechanisms are similar to user. But it must come from joomla,…

                      • from a 30,000 ft. marketing view, the main thing that bug me about the web today: too boxy!

                        Folks, if Joomla really needs to climb above a 2.7% user rate, more modules supporting the 10k+ social networking bs isn't going to help it - you need a game-changer, a major evolution. It might be beyond the scope of Joomla, but IMHO from a 30,000 ft. Marketing point of view (I've never programmed, I hire / manage people to do that) Joomla and (most of) the rest of the internet is like a late-80's VW - boxy, boring, the same, no style. look at the 1000's of Joomla templates that all look the same! Where are the curves, the…

                        • Adding a Log option

                          If there will be an option for showing all log entry of what user did and which user did then that will be a good option for debugging if there is any site issues.
                          We can also put some option for clearing log after few hours or a day or a week etc.
                          May be diferent tabs which says Content , Database , Module , Plugin have been changed or modified if any, which was disabled/enabled at last etc.
                          This will be a good option for developers.

                                It is nice, that I can install some good modules like community Builder. In my opinion it has to be a part of the core functions. As a Module developer the intrest is develop it for joomla and not for Community Builder or others...!!!!

                                • Show/Hide Article ID Switch

                                  A control panel switch to show/hide the article ID in a URL. It's currently cumbersome to have to add articles to hidden menus in order to remove the id, for example (http://site.com/page1 is much better than http://site.com/27-page1). Will save lots of time for heavy users who do not wish to use custom SEF plugins.

                                    • <jdoc:include type="footer" /> for JavaScript

                                      It's well known that JS loaded just before the closing </body> alows pages to appear as though they are loading faster and therefor adding to a user's experience.

                                      By adding a new JDOC statement admins could have an option to load scripts in the head or footer of the page.

                                      • Batch section/category creation

                                        An admin would be able to create for example 10 categories/sections through one page, without having to click Save and then New for each category.
