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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • Still not solved is the author problem. Author can submit article but cannot re-edit after saving...

      Author cannot re-edit own article after saving. Self-created articles, not yet published anyway, should be re-editable by the creator.

        • Add teaser text and image to articles

          Add teaser text and image to articles, and automatically scale the images to fit the template. This feature is often needed for many sites, and the frontpage is often used to display articles like a online newspaper (several columns, small image, a teaser text and link to full article).

          Image handling is very important, so the user don't have to change the image in image editor before uploading.

          Zoo and K2 is a great example of this feature, but it is overkill to use these extensions of only this feature.

          • Version filtering

            When searching the Extensions Directory, I hope that I could filter the search when looking for extensions for 1.6 version only or 1.5 version only or whether the extension supports all version.

            • Articles should have a page title tag setting in its options and be set in the article not the menu

              One of the major missing feature is the ability to set a title tag for a joomla article. You can set it by using a menu item but this can bit a nightmare to manage.

              For an article, what should happen is you set all SEO data including the page title tag, robots info and all other required data for SEO meta kyewords (using mainly internally now), meta description and ability to add custom meta information. If the information is not filled in the default info can be used like now (globally setting here would be useful ie use article…

                    • PDF manager

                      Images are easy to put in to articles. I would like a feature just like that but for PDF files instead.
                      When editing an article, press document button, choose a document to upload to a specific folder, when done choose the document you like to link to. And then you have a PDF-icon with a title and a link to the document.
                      I know you can find extentions like it, but they are never that easy to use. I want it super user friendly. My editors dont have to be geeks to put a PDF into the article. Or other…

                          • HTML5 Master Switch in Global Configuration

                            HTML5 is quickly being adopted by the design and development comunities.

                            Joomla! currently outputs xhtml in jdoc: head.

                            I suggest a master switch in global configuration that changes the head output to valid HTML5.

                            For example:

                            <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /> to <meta charset="utf-8">

                            <link href="/templates/{template}/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon" /> to <link href="/templates/{template}/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon">

                            <script type="text/javascript" src="/media/system/js/mootools-more.js"></script> to <script src="/media/system/js/mootools-more.js"></script>

                            <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/{template}/css/template.css" type="text/css" /> to <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/{template}/css/template.css">

                            Trailing slashes ( />) from link, img, input, br, hr, etc tags are no longer needed.

                            In the templates and forms:
                            email, password, number, range, color, date, month, week, time,…

                            • Integrated Migrator

                              Would it be possible to have an integrated migrator to pull content from earlier versions of Joomla, maybe during the installation process. It could potentially copy any necessary files, such as templates or other installed extensions, via FTP or some other mechanism.

                                  we seriosly need a core joomla solution for this, none extension can manage banners between articles on the frontpage (like a module position) because it can't be done with joomla and is needed for websites that are maintained by their own ad revenue like Radios or News websites.

                                  • Authentication Bridge to Apache htuser and htgroups

                                    It's possible to direct access via URL the pictures ore downloads you place in a Joomla closed area for people with no Joomla account. This, for me, is some kind of security bug.

                                    To avoid this, you normaly use Apaches htacces and htuser, htgroups files so that direct access via URL needs Login into Apache as a htuser.

                                    It would be a great idea, to have a synchronisation between Apache htusers and groups with Joomla users and groups and to implement a single sign on (SSO) for this users.

                                    • hiding administrator interface in different folder rather than 'administrator

                                      This will add more security to the Joomla installation.
