  • 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".

        • HTML5 support via XML "switch" in Joomla! templates

          Although there have been other requests to add HTML5 support for Joomla!, I think the proposed solutions may complicate things...

          Here's a simpler one: let the template developer "choose" HTML5 in the templateDetails.xml file and have Joomla! generate the HTML5 equivalent meta tags that it currently outputs in <jdoc:include type="head" />...

          A DEEPER EXPLANATION
          A simple solution to "attach" HTML5 per template and not entirely on a Joomla! site is to add a new XML api call in the templateDetails.xml where a template developer can declare if their template is HTML5 compatible or not. Something like:

            • Terms of Service

              Joomla 1.6 ‘User Profile’ plugin has an option for Terms of Service but no option to set TOS would like to suggest to add a drop down to choose an article to make it as TOS or an input box to write article ID for TOS.

                              • One URL per content (phase out ItemId)

                                Urls should be created from content, not menu items. The menu manager should merely create aliases to articles and components, lists excepted. Instead of Item(menu)ID, modules should be assigned to lists, articles, categories, components, etc. Advantages: will shave a layer of complexity from Joomla, eliminate duplicate content and allow for cleaner URLs. The only minor disadvantage that comes to mind is same article can't have 2 or more links and module assignments.

                                      • Plugin management

                                        Expand the plugin manager as in the module manager, to be able to assign the page where to load or not each plugin.
