  1. Builtin pdf reader should incorporated in joomla system.

    pdf files display irrespective of size should be possible to display on visitors screen without downloading. Further, there should be option to prevent download and save.
    this facility should also make possible to link files stored on google drive or any other cloud storage system

      • Bring back the ability to edit php AND css files at the same time in the backend

        The newer versions of Joomla you can't edit the php and css at the same time. It's extremely useful to open both at once while designing a site.

        • assign multiple categories to article

          Have seen that this idea is closed but you should re-open it.
          Its true that you can multi-tag an aricle but thats all.
          Maybe i'm missed it in J3.x but you can't get a article list based on tags like you can assign a category list to a menu item.
          As our sites menusystem has different menu items who are showing category list and having many aricles who are clearly have there place in multiple categories it should be great that this could be included in the core.

          • 'Select All' in media manager.

            'Select All' in media manager so that I can delete all files at once, rather than having to select files individually.

                              • all modules with consistent option to exclude their css file

                                IMHO it is a overkill for page speed when every single module has its own link in the head section. It is good to have a default delivered with a module for end users. But for website builders there should be a consistent way within every module to switch of the link to the module's css file, because website builders will override the modules css anyway.

                                • an Extension manager that displays the name of what was just installed

                                  for most installs, this would be redundant, but for those that require multiple installs, such as GCalendar, it would help, especially when you're interrupted before finishing

                                    • Images in Smart Search Results

                                      It would be nice to have the option to show images in search results.

                                      Right now the only way to do this is to hack the core. As the associated plugin cannot be overwritten.

                                      Either have the option in the admin,
                                      or at least add the ->select('a.images AS image'); to the content, tags, category and weblink in the plugins > finder because the com_finder > search can easily be overwritten.

                                      • favicon options

                                        1) we one simple favicon location under /images/favicon/ so you can upload using mediamanager

                                        2) set favicons via category or even article manager

                                        • Take a glance at the Website Template Deployer (WTD)

                                          Between the developer and the customer( or website owner), someone became the Website Template Deployer (WTD). They do not develop or design something , but help others who want to own a website( website owner). Maybe we should meke further segment to this our CMS roles.
