  1. Article to archiv when the publishingtime is over.

    A new possibility, Article to archiv when the publishingtime is over. Some articles shell go to archiv and that was easy if we could set that from the beginning.

      • Admin - Extension Title on Browser's Title Bar

        I usually work on more than 1 Joomla website at day, on each website, I often need to open several tabs of the admin interface.

        e.g.

        I need to have the menus open in one tab and the modules open on another, and maybe articles, I sometimes have 4-5 tabs of the same admin site opened.

        All tabs currently read: SiteName - Administration, making it really difficult to identify which tab is the one you need to go next.

        I really need the Extension Name in the beginning of the Tab Title rather than the site name. I can have…

        • Multichoice Extensions Admin Activation auto install

          Modules and Plugins can be categorized (as in web site menu). For each function, there are sometimes many choices for which module or plugin to use. A site admin may want to try out various options for performing the same function. It would be handy to be able to easily install a selection of viable candidate modules and plugins, and easily switch them on/off. This would mean that they could be grouped together, and easily find which one is being used, and what the user's currently installed other options are (and possibly download a latest list of other options which…

          • Plugin and Module Assignment Exclusion

            You should be able to assign plugins and modules to ALL pages and then have a way to exclude them from specific pages. That way you don't need to go assign modules and plugins to new pages.

            • jform getInput fourth optional parameter

              A fourth optional parameter in the JForm::getInput() method to pass an array of html attributes to the field, for example:

              array("onclick"=>"something", "style"=>"something-more")

              This functionallity save developers to create custom fields only to introduce a extra parameter and will be valid for all kind of fields at the same time....

              • Virtuemart Sync with popular CRM systems (vTiger, Sugar, Salesforce)

                No skilled developer has really tacked this task and submitted an extension that people will pay good money for. I specifically need an extension that syncs (products, contacts, orders) with vTiger.

                  • Text Logo

                    Currently Joomla default template contains image logo and can be changed easily by replacing logo image from back end.

                    I suggest it should also have an option for text logo, where admin just enter desired text (with or without a tagline option) to replace image logo.

                    this would help non developers (who are likely to use default templates) in term of saving time and cost for developing a customized logo.

                    it will also save some of bandwidth, particularly on shared hosting.

                    If accepted additional suggestion is to implement font selection to decorate text logo

                      • Content - Load Module with parameters

                        The core module loader plugin should be able to accept parameters.
                        Something like {loadmodule mod_name param1=value}

                                • Security Module in the Administrative Back End

                                  In building my first Joomla! site with v2.5, I've found after taking the easy road to establishing a localhost using XAMPP and learning Joomla! that at the time of publication that it equates to buying a house and having all the doors and windows left open... and the lights left on security-wise.

                                  It would be really, really, really helpful if our resident Joomla! Masters could put their heads together and write a module that would offer a GUI interface for the back-end that allows the Administrator to choose common options for the:

                                  configuration.php
                                  php.ini
                                  mySQL options
                                  .htaccess
                                  .htpasswd (with encryption) …
