    • 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

                      • 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
