  1. A native wiki!

    Currently, in order to use a wiki, it has to be installed separately. However, Joomla's *content* management system should work seamlessly with a wiki option, such as MediaWiki (also open-source)

        • Random image module: allow multiple folders

          The Random image module only allows me to specify one folder. It would be nice if I could specify multiple folders. For example in winter I could specify the "all-year" and "winter" folders and in summer I could specify "all-year" and "summer". Then I wouldn't have to move images in and out of my randomimages folder at different times of year.

                • keeping the categorie when switching between type

                  when you have menu item with a list of articles and want to change into blog, the category is lost, it would be great to change and keet it in the field.
                  or to change when you see the item menu list.

                    • Make it easy to design websites element for element

                      Combining the power of todays Joomla with a "point and click" interface. My suggestions is as following: Dropping the backend; reduse categories, articles, menues and components to only categories and items; click to change items and drag and drop to change the position of the items on the page.

                        The JForm meta data currently stores in XML format. If we can store in JSON too.

                          • Better error feedbacks

                            Many questions in the forums are asked, and many problems are hard to solve, because people get confused by Joomla’s error messages.

                            In many cases different situations can lead to showing the same error message. As an instance, the famous error of "Database Error: Unable to connect to the database: could not connect to MYSQL" can be caused by different issues such as wrong database name, username, password, or host or any other thing in the configuration.php file for example. But any of these problems would bring up the same error message, and no further explanation about where the problem…

                                • Add the ability to log memory usage by "component"

                                  There are a number of posts where sites fail due to insufficient memory (PHP error). A number of the suggestions are turn off Joomla (caching) or bump up the PHP memory limit. Both of these are masking the real problem (whatever it is). My hosting company recommended removing components one at a time but my site might go several days between failures. A far better (and quicker) solution would be for Joomla to write memory usage to a log. This code could be configured to only log information when memory usage was (say) 70% of maximum.

                                  • Core API system :-

                                    e.g. rest Authentication service - e.g. like EIBS EasySite or confluence
                                    this would be great for creating multisite or cross CMS/plaform signins / integration bridges
                                    could return user details & maybe authentication token for use with other API?

                                    XML or JSON/P output of articles or sections structures etc

                                        • Menu Item: Display Featured Articles from a Single Category and show the Category Description

                                          I would like the possibility to create a menu item that can show the featured articles coming frome one category (and its subcategories) AND shows the Category Description. This can be useful to show an introduction to the articles and ONLY the featured articles. Actually this is not possible in joomla 2.5.
