      • Breadcrumbs or other indicator of the current folder in Media Manager

        In the Media Manager, it would be great to have the name of the current directory/folder indicated somewhere on the page. With long or complex directory structure under /images, it's easy to lose one's place.

        • Option to Add to a Menu

          Starting J 1.5 we have a duplicate work: Creating menu items using articles/categories.
          "Add to Menu" option in article/category entry form will save time as many of the menu items are of article/category type.
          "Add to Menu" option will use current title, alias etc.

          • Like Joomla 1.5, I would like to have the option to number the articles.

            By Example:
            When you press on a menu-item I would like to see:
            1. The history of...
            2. The best place to be is ...
            3. Etc.

            Joomla 2.5 doesn't have this option so now my website (www.t-atrium.nl) looks very messy.

            • generates menus and tabs with categories from a simple ascii website map

              it would be easy to customize the website by generating its conception from a map.
              the map will be a simple text field to fill with menus and items this way:

              text field 1: Leftside menus
              Menu A
              Item 1
              Subitem 1
              Subitem 2
              Item 2
              Subitem 1
              Subitem 2
              Item 3
              Menu B
              Item 1
              Item 2

              text field 2: rightside Menus
              Item 1
              Item 2
              Item 3
              text field 3: horizontal menu (or tabs menu)
              Item 1
              Subitem 1
              Subitem 2
              Item 2
              Subitem 1
              Subitem 2
              Item 3

              • Content protection.

                In Article option there should one more option of "Content Protection", In which functions of control key , highlighting, section s should be prevented. Many times we get permission to publish articles on web site but not to distribute. Hence we require this type content protection..

                  • show user group members in module

                    Wouldn't it be great to be able to show members of a certain user group in the front end like a module?
                    So lets say i've created a subgroup in "registered" called "team members", put some registered users in that group and show the members of "team members" in a module.

                    Can't see any module in the extension database for joomla 2.5 yet.

                    • automatic resize images for template

                      I saw this in prestashop and is amazing!! When you change the template, the images resize automatic according to the template. So generate thumbails and the template made the thumbails images for the size in the template and you no need rework all!!!!

                        • Need more validation/fixes on Menu item alias

                          1) Don't allow to select the "Menu item" which is already mapped with current(edit) menu in Menu alias (vice versa) and this will make a 404 error on site.

                          2) Menu item alias is not working after we have reach the second level menu alias. In Joomla 3.0.3 (sample content) i have create a new menu item for "top" menus with the Type "Menu Item alias" and select the and select the Menu Item "top > Sample Sites". Now the newly created menu get redirected to the 404 error page..

                          Take care of this one ASAP

                                  • Allow sort order in selected category for new articles

                                    When you create a new article you have no possibility to set the sort order of that article within it's category.

                                    When a category is selected, in the Category select, I suggest a new select appears, with the following content:
                                    - First
                                    - Last
                                    - Then a list of all the articles currently in the selected category. If you select one of the articles in that list, then the article you are to save should be placed before the selected article.

                                    I would also like to see this implemented when editing articles also.

                                      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…

                                        • Facebook and Goolge Plus integration

                                          Integration of Facebook and Google Plus in Joomla ( in articles and everywhere , where it is useful ). Should be able to switch off an on , or to integrate other social networks.
