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".

  1. jSimplexml

    In Joomla! 1.7 and the new Joomla! 2.5 beta the JSimpleXml::loadfile() method uses file_exists() to check if the file exists but this php function is not able to check remote files, maybe will be better to use another kind of check like a fopen in read mode to check if a file (incluiding a remote file) exists or not.

    • ¡¡¡¡¡ importante . important ¡¡¡¡¡¡

      spanish.

      insertar un chat en el panel de administrador , en el que solo puedan chatear super admin y admin en comunidad : ejemplo irc ,

      este chat sera unico para la comunidad de administradores y super admin , donde entre ellos mismos podran solucionar sus dudas.

      y una libreta de anotaciones en el panel de contro , para poder dejar notas de lo q sucede en la web ,o ha sucedido , para cuando otro administrador llegue al panel , este sepa porque hay algun modulo o plugin desactivado.

      otra idea la de saber en el panel de control…

              • A more versatile category blog menu

                HI,

                It could be great if there are the following options in the Category Blog Menu :
                - multi-categories selection
                - a field where you could identify some articles you do not want to display in the blog
                - a group by (category, author…) option with the possibility to display the description of the categories selected

                Many of theses features are available in the mod_articles_category module.
                So I'm figuring that it could be done for com_content menu.

                Regards

                  • Be able to override template module chrome for a specific module.

                    I'm still thinking about the best way to implement but sometimes a position has chrome that won't allow a title but you realize you need a title on one specific module. Right now you have to do a big although not hard workaround. You should be able assign the chrome somewhere else. Kind of like cascading parameters in content.

                      • Smart Search filter should/must allow to select empty categories and its child

                        Smart Search filter should/must allow to select empty categories and its child.
                        At themoment It's possible to select only categories that are already indicized and have already at least an article, but if articles are inserted by many users, it's "impossible" to update the filter every time a category is filled.
                        It is bettere that a user can choose a category independently if it has an article or not, bettere if selecting a category, all child categories are automatically selected

                        • Problemas de funcionalidad y textos con joomla versión 2.5

                          Me comentaron que la nueva versión de Joomla 2.5 tenía problemas de funcionalidad al ser una versión aun "beta" (problemas con los tildes, con las "ñ") que tan cierto es este comentario? Estoy con mi empresa a punto de emigrar de un sitio web estándar a uno autoadministrable Joomla y necesitamos tomar una decisión, si versión 1.5 o 2.5 (nos gustan más los templates de 2.5)

                          agradecería su respuesta.

                          • Joomla Administrator with "Buit-in shortcut menu" for fast navigation

                            If joomla administrator facilitates the built in shortcuts menu, then we can add "most visited" administrator menu items so that we can easily go to desired page.

                            on a day estimated, for large portals it saves 15-20 mins of an admin user.

                            • Add test email button to Global Configuration > Server

                              When adding SMTP email settings under Global configuration > Server you can't be 100% sure they're working. It would be great to have a test button that somehow fires off an email to the super admin's email address (or one you enter to a blank field) so you can be sure the settings are correct.

                              Currently I enter the details, then have to use the Mass mail function to try and test the mail config is right.

                                • Replace all Joomla icons (especially icons in Components -> Contacts) with Font Awesome

                                  Hi:

                                  Image icons in Joomla! are now outdated - especially those default Contact page icons in Components -> Contacts -> Options -> Icons.

                                  Joomla! 3 is using Bootstrap, so why not standardise on Font Awesome?

                                    • how about if you have a phone number, email and reveal your costs?

                                      i would never use or buy the product because you have NO way of contacting the compnay - no phone, no email. And, you don't reveal costs. i clicked on the "answer.com" and they wanted $38 to tell me how much the download is if I buy it after the trial.

                                        • article editor

                                          the size of the field for the article edition is generaly too small. The size can be adjusted with the mouse. It should be possible to define it directly in the settings. The same problem exists for other editor like template editor (html, css)
