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".

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

    • Remove username field since email must be unique

      Since the email must be unique I think that the usage of the username ends to be unnecessary

        • Use fopen or curl for Joomla Update

          As not all Joomla users can enable fopen for the Joomla Updates, why not have curl as an option too?

            • Administrator side should be designed by web2 technology

              usually administrators spend long time in administrator backend so it needs to let them have a high speed and more interactive working place by JSON, javascript and HTML.

                    • CCK in core

                      It is important to have this feature so users don't have to be dependent on third party CCK components and if they get updated or not. Most websites today depend on more than just a TITLE and BODY article (Content Item/Node). In addition, CCK in the core has been aaopted by Drupal 7...Why not Joomla. Thank you all.

                      • Better RSS Feed management

                        Currently the frontpage has its own RSS Feed, and other feeds can be added to single pages with the RSS module.
                        What about a better RSS feed management and creation, like Ninja RSS feed? I mean, If I want to publish a feed of all articles published on the site, now I only have the choice to publish all articles on the frontpage...
                        Add a way to create RSS Feeds with choice of what to publish in each feed.

                          What about the promises about upgrade functions from Joomla 1.5 to 1.6?
                          Will you really let all the 1.5 users out in the rain?

                          • featured finished publishing date

                            Instead of just having one finished publishing date for an article, there should be two. The current one for when a article expires, the other to expire it only from being a featured article.

                                  As everyone know, Joomla websites have a real problem with loading time. It's very important to decrease loading time so a new instalation should be fully loaded in less than 3 seconds.

                                  • Hardcoded module dependency (mod_custom)

                                    Why is the editor for the module "mod_custom" with a hard-coded condition included?

                                    Adminstrator/components/com_modules/views/module/tmpl/edit.php (Joomla 1.6.1)

                                    17: $hasContent = empty($this->item->module) | $ This-> item-> module == 'custom' | $ This-> item-> module == 'mod_custom';

                                    I think it would be a good idea to control this content editor of a parameter in an XML file of own modules.

                                    • A map of positions of the templates

                                      When I get install a new template in Joomla and I want to add a module in a specific position, I literaly have to guess the name of te position where I want put the module.
                                      Names like user1, user2, user3 are not intuitives.
                                      And many times some positions seems dosen't work.

                                      A position map like the cheat of:
                                      /index.php?tp=1
                                      but in the back-end of the modules and a little more complete and readable
