Joomla Idea Pool

Welcome to the Joomla Idea Pool. Please add your suggestions here for future versions of Joomla and vote on current suggestions.

What features would you like to see in future versions of Joomla?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

    • 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.

                      • jSimplexml

                        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…

                            • Improve Article Insert Image Modal Window

                              The idea here is to improve the "Insert Image" modal window when you want to insert an image within an Article.

                              Today, as of Joomla 3.4, when you want to insert an image within an article, a modal window is opened and all images of your image folder is displayed.

                              Suppose that you have ten of thousand of image in that folder. The performance is very bad because the modal window will create a thumbnail of each image.
                              This is very time consuming, specially because you have to wait that the modal window finish to load the thumbnails. Until then…

                                    • A more versatile category blog menu

                                      HI,

                                      It could be great if there are the following options in the Category Blog Menu :
                                      - multi-categories selection
                                      - a field where you could identify some articles you do not want to display in the blog
                                      - a group by (category, author…) option with the possibility to display the description of the categories selected

                                      Many of theses features are available in the mod_articles_category module.
                                      So I'm figuring that it could be done for com_content menu.

                                      Regards

                                        • Be able to override template module chrome for a specific module.

                                          I'm still thinking about the best way to implement but sometimes a position has chrome that won't allow a title but you realize you need a title on one specific module. Right now you have to do a big although not hard workaround. You should be able assign the chrome somewhere else. Kind of like cascading parameters in content.
