  1. 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 are now outdated - especially those default Contact page icons in Components -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)

                    • Connection mixer for Joomla to create multidb views (1 view, 1+n connections)

                      Sometimes we may need to connect to multiple servers and display data from them. Example - events. Let's imagine that different organisations in one town have own events in their website but they want to create a common website for the events - so that when they change something the changements are quickly also in the central site. And they may want also to extend the central website as a collaborative event planning area. That means in the central server the data from remote servers should be queried as it was in this server.
                      It is principally not hard -…

                            Possibility to have choice to ordering automaticly Menu Items in alphabetic order (ascending or descending) but for the frontend.

                            We can do it in backend. But it will be very good to be abble to decide (in backend of course) to decide how they are order in the front.

                            Don't have to drag and drop every time.

                            Don't have to determine "manually" if Amdlfkjmlkjsfq must be before or after Amqlsdkjfqmlj.
                            If I have decide to order them in alphabetic order, I don't need to read and drag and drop : they are automaticly in my alphabetic order (in backend and…

                              • Build a core system which is fast and dyanimic. Waiting to see Joomla fast as WordPress.

                                Joomla, although it is now 1.6 in version, is still heavy to process the file system. I want to see Joomla with lighter file procession system like in WordPress where creation, deletion and administration of contents, categories or related core services must be fast as in WordPRess.

                                  • Have multiple select language options for sharing articles in a multilingual site.

                                    It would be very helpfull to allow multiple select language next to the "all" option.

                                    This will allow me to share an article in swedish with norwegian and danish front end but not have it shared with english front end.

                                    • Fix the support ticket process

                                      Fix the detail body information of the support ticket so that clicking off that section then clicking back on that section does not delete everything already typed?

                                        • debate extensions

                                          debate extensions are not good, thus need a lot of changes.
