  1. 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

        Articles list of cat.2

        • 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.

            • 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.

                  • WCGA 2.0 Priority 2 Accessibility Compliance

                    As recent laws have started making companies liable for not adhering to WCGA 2.0 Priority 2 Accessibility Compliance it is my recommendation that this be addressed.

                    As of Version 1.5 WCGA 1.0 Priority 2 was supposed to be implemented but there have been no further statements beyond this article. http://www.joomla.org/accessibility-statement.html

                    This is very important for municipal and federal Governments especially. It would be good to include if we hope to bring Joomla to the front of the rat race.

                          • site subtitle for languages

                            For now, we can configure the site title for each language. So that it can be displayed in the template.
                            However, we cannot set a subtitle meaning that we have to create a style for each template we a different subtitle (as my templates defines a subtitle that is displayed below the title).
                            Maybe we can make it generic and have a set of parameters for langages (and templates) that we can define in the configuration manager and in the langage settings

                            • Rational nomenclature for related database columns

                              A lack of up-to-date Joomla! database schema diagrams can complicate efforts to develop extensions, components or automated processes that manipulate a Joomla! database. Typical schema generators such as SchemaSpy can't infer column-to-column relationships in Joomla! tables because relational columns aren't provided names sufficient to infer relationships.

                              An example of the need for a more explicit nomenclature can be found in modules_menu. The two lone columns relate to columns in modules.id and menus.id. To a human reader willing to pick through 170+ tables, it's not that difficult to figure out that modules_menu.menuid relates to menu.id, and modules_menu.moduleid relates to modules.id.
                              Well-designed…

                              • Allow multiple language "defaults"

                                It would be very nice for multilingual websites to allow more than one default language.

                                For instance I would like to be able to install en-US and en-GB as languages. where a visitor from Canada should fall back to en-US and a visitor from Ireland should fall back into en-GB. it could look somewhat like this..

                                - Installed language
                                ----visiting

                                - en-US
                                ---en-CA
                                ---es-MX
                                ---...

                                - en-GB
                                ---en-IE
                                ---nl-NL
                                ---nl-BE
                                ---...

                                This will allow me to have Europeans go to the en-GB site and North Americans to the en-US site

                                    joomla + website x5 = The Nr. 1 Website CMS
                                    Why not?
                                    for such a system I would even be willing to pay money
